Its been a while since I last featured a stop-you-in-your-tracks apartment. The shaker kitchen in this restored and renovated 1920s build in Gothenburg will have you dreaming of hosting gatherings with friends. Remember what those were like?!
The features in this two-ed home read like a who’s who of Swedish interiors – the restored herringbone parquet floor, original hand-blown glass windows and double doors to die for.
But let’s get back to the shaker kitchen. Such a fresh, organised room to spend time in. String shelves provide easy access for all-important wine glasses and carefully chosen framed abstract art prints add texture and interest to otherwise minimally styled walls.
Designed by Marbodal in shaker style, the black oak units give it a modern twist. I love its copper fronted cupboard handles and the way they contrast against the marble style worktops.
Do you notice the clever shelving nook facing into the dining room? It makes the perfect spot to keep cookery books and a few choice ceramics as they’ve styled it here. And looking out from the hob into the living/dining room whilst you’re preparing dinner makes this a really social space to live in. It’s nice to chat to your guests while you’re getting everything ready.
In case you wondered, that soothing shade on the walls is called ‘Coconut’ from Jotun. See how it emphasises tonally the light wood furniture and contrasts the black kitchen units? Masterfully done. When can I move in?
