With just 43m2 of space available in this Gothenburg apartment, every square metre needs to be planned to perfection.
The use of a light colour pallet and modern wooden flooring instantly creates the illusion of space and freshness. The small alcove situated in the bedroom is ideal for a feature wall, which adds interest and creates a subtle theme. Feature walls help to distinguish the different rooms in this open plan living area. If this was my apartment, I would prefer the bedroom area to be a little more concealed, however the space has been used wisely. The shelving to the left may benefit from a curtain cover, as storage can soon become cluttered and is best hidden. Simplicity is key, as clutter is distracting and overwhelming, particularly in small spaces.
The intregated kitchen and dining area works a treat- the perfect size for a couple, although it appears a lady lives alone here. Work is kept separate from play with a small study area situated around a corner.
The pretty dressing area against the backdrop of the pink feature wall is lovely- especially with the use of vintage-style decor. Perhaps this area would benefit more from a dressing table and chair. Coat hooks are useful for displaying accessories (belts, bags, handbags…) as well as for storing bulky jackets. It is a shame there isn’t a wardrobe- I’m sure that the average lady would struggle to get her entire wardrobe on one rail! Plus these rails tend to be unstable and quite unattractive.
And finally the bathroom. Simple, modern and clean- what more do you need?!
