A Mini Yet Mighty One Room Swedish Attic Apartment

One of the things that first drew me to Scandinavian design all those years ago is just how clever they are at transforming cramped living spaces into practical, beautiful homes. Of course it helps that Scandinavian style is often characterised by light colours and clean lines which lends itself nicely to a small space. But there's also something else at play: their ability to whittle furniture down to the bare necessities and strike that perfect balance between form and function. And this lovely one room studio high up in the roof tops of Gothenburg, Sweden is a fine example. Enjoy the tour!

Check out how shelving has been tucked under the sloped ceiling to create space for little treasures!

Anyone else considering down-sizing after seeing this?! Or perhaps you have a large attic space that needs converting? Either way, I find this space so inspiring and would quite happily turn in each night in that little bed nook, how about you?!

It's a public holiday in Sweden today and we're gearing up for the arrival of guests from the UK. of course, me being me I can't stop at making beds, I have to dive into town to pick up flowers, some curtains as the bedroom is way too light in the mornings and some other KEY bits and pieces (cue: major eye-rolling from Per!!)  Anyway - we can't wait! 

I hope you've got some fun plans for the next couple of days too. I'll be stopping by tomorrow with a final post for the week, and I think it's a goodie too - see you then!

  1. Just curious. Does no one watch television in any of these homes you feature?

    1. Sometimes it would appear as if a home doesn't have a TV simply because I select the pictures to show and the TV. ones aren't always that inspiring - but you've spurred me on to show a few more pictures (maybe even a feature about it). Watch this space!

    2. More like, usually the place where the TV is, is not usually so photogenic, mostly because TVs are not exactly the most styling piece of "furniture". I hide mine in a dark wall, and usually dont feature it almost at all, since I have a plain flat screen most people will own. You can see mine here ( ) and here ( ). There are some beautiful new TVs now of course that look like a photo canvas, or some free standing ones buuut it is so low on my priority list. As such I just prefer not featuring the one I have, simple solution. Usually thats what happens with all the photos of houses you see ;)

  2. I have always been attracted to rooms with irregular shapes; all the slanted ceilings/angles etc. (not to mention that cute window by the bed!) make my heart sing!
    Amazing space.

    1. The bedroom area is just SO lovely!!! Happy to hear you found this home inspiring Alena :)
