A Swedish City Apartment That's Pretty and Practical!

I discovered this little gem yesterday evening and was immediately drawn in by the tiles (keep an eye out for the ones in the kitchen and hallway too). The split-level apartment is on one of Gothenburg's most well-loved streets and dates back to the 1920s.

I particularly appreciate how the owners have ensured it's both practical and pretty! Think mid-century furniture, iconic Scandinavian design, oodles of storage and plenty of plants! Ready to take the tour? 

I love climbing plants around windows - especially in the city or in winter time. It adds just the touch of greenery you need! 

I'm also a big fan of curtains in the hallway, they are a great way to keep the draft at bay. And also, if you're not happy with the look of your front door but don't fancy the investment to change it, it's a great way to conceal it when you're tucked up indoors! 

If you look closely, you'll spot lots of smart storage in the hallway, including a wall mounted chest of drawers and a narrow shoe cabinet (from IKEA), as well as open storage such as a low mounted Vitra hang-it-all for children items and a rail by the door for coats. 

All-in-all, lots of lovely ideas! Is there anything that stood out to you? 

I loved reading everyone's comments on the dreamy danish cottage yesterday - so interesting! It seems I need to work on my botanical knowledge - so grateful for all the plant and flower experts out there. 
I'm still dreaming about the outdoor shower! 

Happy Lillördag (little Saturday!) friends!

  1. This is a sweet space. I've never seen hallway curtains. It's interesting to see how differently things are done in various locations.

  2. Fresh combination white walls, midcentury cabinet and green plants.
