small-apartment-interior-scandinavian-entry

This small yet charming duplex apartment is composed of 667 square feet (62 square meters), located in Gothenburg, a major city in Sweden. For those who do not know, a duplex apartment is a single dwelling unit that is spread over two levels connected by an interior staircase. The apartment features a built-in kitchen, exposed beams and original wood floors. Located in a three-story building, the beautiful grounds feature a gazebo.

On the interior of this apartment, you will find a kitchen, bathroom and living room on the first level. On the upstairs level is a spacious bedroom, closet, home office and open beams that looks down into the living room. Entering into this apartment, you are greeted by hardwood flooring that is used throughout the interiors. A coat rack provides a place to hang coats, sweaters and hats. A plug-in wall sconce on the wall provides a simple solution to illuminating a space without have to do electrical installation.

What We Love: This cozy duplex apartment is brimming with charm and personality, from the original hardwood flooring to the exposed brick. Despite the compact floor plan, this home feels very spacious thanks to a brilliant interior layout. Small-scale furnishings also helps to make this home have a great flow without feeling cluttered. Another nice feature about this home is how functional it is. There is plenty of cabinet space in the kitchen and the built-in closet in the bedroom is very ideal, not having to add extra furniture for storage… Readers, what are your thoughts on the design of this home? Could you live in this space or do you think the floor plan is too small? Tell us in the Comments!

Above: In the kitchen you will find painted cabinetry in a beautiful blue-gray hue, accented by gold drawer pulls. A backsplash of exposed brick adds an industrial element to the space. On the other side of the kitchen, the cabinetry has been left unfinished, lending a rustic aesthetic. A small breakfast nook provides cozy, casual seating for two. A window floods the space with natural light.
