my scandinavian home: A fab Swedish small space with different 'zones'

A fab Swedish small space with different 'zones'

Thursday, 11 February 2016

Often one room apartments are decorated with the same scheme throughout - i.e. white walls and then touches of an accent colour - which is a great way of creating a cohesive space. But, as this fabulous studio apartment in Gothenburg shows, it's also great to mark out particular zones. Here, I absolutely love the cosy, cocoon effect of a dark wall in the bedroom area, and likewise the dining area is lovely and bright. Such a clever design for a small space, don't you think?

Entrance. Found via Coco Lapine with thanks.

Oooo, I love this apartment. I think the interior design is so clever!

Could you live here?

Get the look: Thonet side chair, this is a great source for prints, charcoal linen bedding, TURBO clothes rail. Try the Farrow & Ball dark range for a similar paint colour.

Other links I love today:

This steel staircase going up through the centre of a house in Tel Aviv is amazing!

Alexa Chung shoot by Tom Craig, 
Have you ever visited Merci in Paris? It's on my hit list for 2016. This interview with the owner is so interesting. 

Just how fabulous is this Australian home?

And finally, I'm loving the art deco touch in this bathroom with a double vanity (oh how I'd love to have my very own sink....!).

Have a lovely day! 

PS I was so happy to participate in a Q&A with Etsy about how to create Modern Rustic.


  1. smart zoned.. beautiful interior.. maybe only too much dark details for a small place...

  2. I love it. I definitely need a dark blue wall in our new home.

    Best, Sarah

  4. Wow! This is a very wonderful post and Great advice! A good news for all. Up to 85% Off! The Eades Discount Wallpaper and Fabric Shopping System is now Online! Thank you for sharing valuable information.

  5. One of things I always swoon over in the photos you post is the light and the windows. There always seem to be so many of them and they are huge.
    And the radiators. I grew up in Europe (I lived there till I was 30) and to this day, I miss radiators (and the window sills featured in the 3rd post from top. In North America, unless you have an old Victorian house, there are no window sills.
    To this day, I still haven't adjusted to the silly forced air heating system. Radiators are so much better.
    Anyway, I love your blog.
