Hej kompisar! Who says small can’t be beautiful? This 1920’s 27 metre square (290 foot square) studio apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden is a fine example of how to create a wonderful, cohesive pad with comfy zones to cook, sleep, slouch, and eat.  Think stonewashed linens, jute rugs, rattan furniture and open and closed storage for a relaxed look and feel. Such a perfect little oasis for one,  high up in the roof tops of Sweden’s second largest city…

Photography – Anders Bergstedt Styling – Anna Furbacken for Entrance.

I love the feel of this space. I think the neutral colour scheme works so well – and I like how the windowsill runs all the way along to form a handy shelf for books etc.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look:  bed – relaxed linen bed skirt, I love this French linen bed set. dining arealinen table cloth, wooden stools. living room areaStockholm 2017 bench, Skultuna candle holder, jute rug Kitchen – Smeg fridge, beautiful rough linen by the metre for curtains.

There’s a whole load more inspiring small spaces to be found here (if this comes up first just scroll passed).

We’re off to the beach today in a bid to soak up as much Spanish sun as possible, before packaging it up and attempting to take it back with us for the long Swedish winter. To be honest though, my British skin doesn’t soak up so much anyhow…!

Have a lovely day! 

PS – how fun is this video tour of Robert Downey JR’s house? I was super excited to spot the Ticka project – a beeeeautiful multi-functional piece created by the extremely talented duo Grefmar + Hederström, here in Malmö, Sweden! Yay!
