Located in a beautiful Art Nouveau building in the center of Gothenburg, this captivating Swedish apartment (discovered by our site on Alvhem) is packed full with inspiring decorating ideas. Comprised of two rooms plus kitchen, the 57 square meter home also comes with plenty of attic space for storage. Step into the small entrance hall and you will have access to all the key living spaces. Filled with light and powerful color contrasts, the social zone is charming to say the least. During long Swedish nights, this cheerful interior filled with books and painting makes for a wonderful refuge.
The kitchen showcases a distinct personality mostly defined by an exposed brick round wall, adding a rustic touch to the interior scheme. Nooks, crannies, posters, flower pots and original lighting units make for a welcoming atmosphere. The bedroom is particularly inviting with the king-sized bed and generously-sized windows. The gray wallpaper was perfectly complemented by a minimalist metal shelving system, which has both a functional and an aesthetic appeal.

There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite 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.
