Original Details in a Light-Filled Swedish Apartment

An early 20th-century building in Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg, is home to a beautiful corner apartment with light-filled rooms and original details. The 67 square meters features beige walls, light wooden floorboards, and one bedroom.

Many original details in this apartment have been preserved, like mirror doors, ceiling rosettes, a tiled fireplace, and an old-fashioned wood stove in the kitchen. All rooms are very light, but especially the living room, which is located in the corner, so it has windows on two sides. The calm color palette and natural light that floods into the rooms give this apartment a wonderful atmosphere.

Even though you’re in the city, from the living room window, you have a gorgeous view of a leafy willow tree, which is something you often find at Swedish apartment buildings. The living room is spacious wth plenty of room for a seating area, defined here by a colorful rug, and a round dining table.
