Small Space Living in Gothenburg

Apparently very good things come out of Gothenburg, Sweden. I’m pretty sure Little Dragon are from Gothenburg, and now I’ve spotted this flat for sale there.

I thought I was dealing with small living space issues, but looking at this room makes me feel like our flat is bigger than I give it credit for. And is anyone else concerned that bed isn’t secure enough? It’s propped up by one lonely metal rod! If your ceilings are high enough, a loft bed is a great way to create more space in a studio flat– just maybe with a little more support? For my peace of mind.

The mixture of black, white, and wood is right up my street. I’m such a fan of big windows and bright, white walls. A lot of people think it’s a sterile look, but when done right it makes for a light space and a great blank canvas. The owner of this flat made great use of their space by creating defined areas. It looks very comfortable and, because they didn’t pack in too much furniture, it looks spacious. They also made a wise decision in picking open furniture for some of their key pieces. The coffee table, for example, has very thin, white legs. It takes up a lot less visual space than some other options. This is another great tip for people with small spaces. You may have noticed that in our living room, we have a clear coffee table that serves a similar purpose.

How do you work around having a small space?

    It makes me feel a bit depressed looking at the photos, god knows how it must feel to live there. Why no personality? It just looks depressingly souless, characterless, and confining. The “art” is trite too.

      Hi Jane,
      I actually agree about the posters– they leave a little to be desired. I think the owner did a good job decorating with the space they had, though. I love this minimalist style, but I know it can be a bit too plain for some!
