Believe it or not, this perfectly styled Scandinavian loft is located in Chicago, U.S., and belong to Swedish photographer Andreas Larsson (that's the trick!). Larsson moved to the States more than ten years ago to study photography and finally settled down in the West Coast. After lots of haunting, he finally managed to find the apartment of his dreams: a open plan loft arranged in one floor in an industrial building that dated back to 1890s. The photographer chose a oak floors painted with a special paint, generally used outdoors that give the space a very contemporary atmosphere without becoming cold. I love how Andreas declined the Scandinavian style and adapted it to the industrial loft, especially in the decision of painting the beams white (quite unusual for these spaces) and keep the furniture to a minimum by selecting just a few stunning design pieces.
