Found in the urban Linnéstaden district of Gothenburg, this apartment is located in a turn of the century building overlooking the Oscar Fredrik church. Its whitewashed interior walls beautifully contribute to creating a bright and cheery atmosphere in all corners of the house. Spreading over 106 square meters, the floor plan is composed of a cluster of spaces shaping a comfortable home – the large living space has direct access to the serene bedroom via two large doors. Dark floors in the hallway, kitchen and bathroom contrast with light wooden planks adorning the rest of the social and private spaces. This Gothenburg apartment is filled with details that are a perfect background for an urban, elegant and youthful lifestyle. The south-facing balcony invites you to enjoy a cup of tea in the company of a splendid church and there is also a building permit for an additional balcony facing the courtyard, so you can extend the benefits of terrace time. If you move there, let us know if you decided to build a second terrace.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
