Walnut and white apartment in Majorna, Gothenburg


This bright and airy apartment is in the seaside neighbourhood of Majorna, in Gothenburg. A heavy use of dark-coloured woods and crumpled textiles has a lovely warming effect on the otherwise quite stark white walls and chessboard floor tiles.

There are two bedrooms (one adult double and a very cute kids' room!) plus kitchen, living room, bathroom and separate shower. The kitchen window opens out onto a little courtyard (presumably shared with the other apartments) which has several tables, chairs and a serious-looking barbecue! This is a common format for buildings in the area - Majorna is known for the large, interconnected courtyards that link its houses together.
