Timeless Charm and Dark Blue Walls in a Small Swedish Apartment
While colours in the fashion and interior design world come and go, there is always one that remains: dark blue. It’s timeless. And I’m a huge fan. 
Softer than black but still striking, dark blue is a stalwart in the world of interiors and adds a cosy, cocoon like feel to a room. Combine it with fresh whites and warm earthy tones for a soft, elegant look, and throw in lots of natural materials in the form of wood, rattan, cane, linen and wool for a look that’s bang up to date! 
This beautiful apartment in Gothenburg is a fine example of dark blue done right! Oh, and it’s also great inspiration for anyone who has their bedroom in the living room too! Välkommen in!

I don’t think I’ll ever tire of linen bedding – it’s practical, catches the light in a beautiful way, and the more you wash it the softer it gets. Try Wonder Linen on Etsy* for similar!

Contrast is continued in the kitchen with black units and off-white walls. Notice the copper piping, cabinet and painting too!

Swedes are going crazy for range ovens right now! They’re more widely available these days as you can get them in both gas and electric induction versions.

Rule break alert: the rug version of ‘messy hair, don’t care’! I kind of like how this one extends onto the wood floor. It’s a little like rolling out the red carpet – everyday!

A jute rug adds a softness to the black and white bathroom. We’ve also added one to our downstairs loo and it makes the world of difference!

Such a lovely home full of contrast! Interestingly, the estate agent have presented two versions of how to divide up the sitting room / bedroom area – one open-plan, and one divided into two separate rooms (vardagsrum – living room, kök – kitchen, sovrum – bedroom):

Which do you prefer?

Also, would you consider going for a dark colour in your home? In Albin’s room we’ve painted two of the walls in dark blue, but I’ve always regretted not going for the entire room. Next project? 

Not quite convinced with the dark blue? See other homes with this feature here: 

And for those of you planning a small space, here are some great examples of Scandinavian style studio apartments:
