With views towards the river and the harbor, this 42 square meter apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden is said to offer a high degree of calmness and well being. The small one-room home discovered by our site on Alvhem features a large shared roof terrace, perfect for having friends over. The entire apartment is visually linked by parquet flooring that runs the entire surface of the property. As you enter, you are greeted by an “interactive” hallway with room for a desk and clever storage above the entrance door.
The wall between the kitchen and the living room has been opened up in order to create an extensive floor plan. Stylish counter-top, gray tiles and white cabinet doors give the kitchen a strong graphic character. Generously-sized windows allow natural light to flow freely in the living room, with sun rays optimally captured throughout the day. This joyful interior is decorated in such a creative manner, that each corner draws attention; from the golden lighting unit to the paintings on the walls, everything seems to be in perfect tune. Enjoy this dose of Swedish inspiration and feel free to share your thoughts!
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.
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.
