another little gem of a swedish apartment that i’ve spotted over on estate agent alvhem’s website is this light-filled apartment in linnéstaden, one of the central urban districts of gothenburg, which dates from 1905.
much of it’s scandinavian charm comes from the beautiful whitewashed hardwood flooring and brilliant white walls, which bounce light into all corners of the home, as well as the designation of space into different functional areas. i particularly love the creative use of space in the hallway, with a pop-up desk that can be shut away when not in use, and a colourful striped rag-rug runner which gives the hallway the illusion of extra length.
the moroccan influence extends into the bathroom in the luscious blue marrakech tiled floor, which extends into the shower area to create a wet room. the icing on the cake is that delightful balcony (the apartment is on the 4th floor) – which is south facing, making it a daily sun trap!
when can i move in?
