A functional apartment built in the 1930s has been reborn. This apartment is a showcase of Swedish design at its best, serving as a model for hundreds or interiors. The apartment is located in Johanneberg, Gothenburg and it has all the functionalist assets, both good and bad.
With a modest blueprint this apartments hosts no more than a living room with a dinning and amazing views trough the balcony, a small bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen, a lot of space being sadly lost with the hallways, the inefficient shape in the blueprint resembling space losses and tricky angles. Happily this flaws have been totally annihilated by the new design and the amazing view over the nearby mountains.
The apartment keeps his charming and traditional features even today, satisfying the inhabitants with amazing windows and views, high ceilings and certain solid pieces of marble which tend to highlight the old charismatic feel of the home. The new furniture has been tastefully picked and or refurbished, fitting contemporary needs and keeping an amazing clear and smooth look with neutral color scheme on the walls and color accents from the furniture.
We have reviewed this apartment mostly because it shows how the old can catch a fresh design without huge investments. We all have old furniture somewhere laying around. Give them a chance, paint them turquoise and set it in a white interior with wooden black frames for the windows, as simple as it sounds you can obtain an amazing look, handle it tastefully.
