A sense of space in a small home

This sweet little apartment in Gothenburg has really succeeded in making compact living feeling spacious. The green-blue wall colour creates a sense of space and the rattan and naked wood makes for a calm feel - and of course plenty of greenery and plants help add freshness to the home. A winning combo!

High in the sky

There is something so lovely about a top floor apartment - the feeling of being high up in the sky and having a constant stream of light flooding in!

Can't you just imagine having your weekend breakfasts here with the balcony door open, a cup of coffee in your hand reading the paper?

Cosy and light

A trend we've seen emerging in Sweden recently is beautifully painted woodworks – such as doors, skirting and window frames. This works particularly well in older homes as they have plenty of period features such as wooden clad wall panels. To achieve this look it's important to pick a pale muted tone that works well with your furniture and decor. Unlike the Brits the Scandinavians don't really use their curtains much and this style means you can skip curtains all together. Venetian blind has been fitted in the bedroom windows which is a good way of getting some privacy without taking anything away from the window detailing.

We love green plants as it adds life and colour to even the dreariest of spaces. The cacti and succulent trend, which has been big over the past few years, has now moved on and it is all about classic green plants like Geranium and Monstera.

1920's perfection

Johanna Bradford shared this stunning home on her blog recently. The home belongs to her friends in Gothenburg who live in a lovely 1920s house. We love the William Morris wall paper, wood-clad kitchen walls and the Royal Copenhagen dinnerware service which can be spotted around the home!
