Browse through the photos below and you will discover a welcoming apartment, filled with inspiring design ideas, personality and space. Each of the 44 square meters in this beautiful Scandinavian crib was optimized, resulting in a home that simply dazzles. Discovered by our site on Alvhem, the abode consists of a single open plan interior, with high ceilings and a few charming details preserving the character of a turn of the century building in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The apartment is partially divided in two by an interrupted wall, that is part brick, part hidden storage space. This element visually separates the hallway and kitchen from the social zone and mezzanine. Two generously-sized windows allow a high amount of natural light inside, adding even more warmth. The variety of materials (wood, brick, leather) blend perfectly with the black and white furniture finishes. Despite its relatively small size, this crib exhibits an undefined charm and balance.
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.
