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.

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.
