Other People's Homes: Linnéa & Stefan

Stefan Last summer I visited my friend Linnéa and her husband Stefan in their one room apartment located in Kortedala, a little suburb just fifteen minutes away from the center of Gothenburg by tram. Since Linnéa is one of my closest friends I have visited her more times than I can keep track of, but last summer she asked me to bring my camera along and take some pictures of their apartment since they were going to move to a bigger one later that summer.

I took many pictures that particular summer evening and afterwards they were stored on my hard drive. It wasn't until now in the days between Christmas and New Year's eve that I finally had some time to sit down and edit them. Most of the pictures in this post are close-ups but in the second part there will be a few more of the apartment as a whole. Since Linnéa and Stefan no longer live in that particular place anymore the pictures and the memories are all that's left of their home there.

Linnéa and Stefan had the apartment for about six years and I'm so impressed that they managed to squeeze all their beautiful things into that little space that measured about 35 square metres (including the hallway and bathroom). In the big room they had a double bed, a dining area, lots of bookshelfs, a little reading area with an armchair and two very small workspaces (one for writing, and one for sewing)! The apartment was built in the fifties and it included beautiful fishbone patterned wooden floors, a lovely fifites kitchen with mint coloured cabinet doors, big windows and a french balcony.

Linnéa is a great collector of many beautiful vintage items and I especially adore her porcelain animal collection that keeps growing larger over time. Seeing these pictures made me realise how much I long for summer and fresh flowers. I'm glad we are moving towards lighter days here now.

Part II of Linnéa's and Stefan's home is coming soon :)

  4. Härligt! Ser verkligen fram emot fler bilder. Blir glad när jag ser att Kortedala har en sån charm. Älskar de där blodröda växterna i fönstret. Har försökt hitta en sån planta till mig själv, utan någon vidare framgång hittills tyvärr.

    1. Eller hur! Tack för din fina kommentar! Kortedala har verkligen charm - hur många fina gamla lägenheter från 50- och 60-talet som helst och mycket tjusiga naturområden. Eller hur är de blodröda växterna vackra! De kallas för lyckoklöver och dyker upp i blomsteraffärer lite här och där. Jag köpte en grön variant på blomsterlandet för ett par år sedan :) Ibland har jag sett att de har de vinröda i blomsteraffären som ligger inuti Lagerhaus på Östra Hamngatan i Göteborg. :)

    2. Oh, jättetack! Lyckoklöver alltså. Nu ska jag nog kunna hitta ett eget exemplar. Genast blev nästa vända ner på stan mycket mer intressant och spännande. :)

    1. Åh, eller hur! Verkligen finaste lägenheten! Mitt hjärta bultade extra för fiskbensparketten och de fina fönsterna med djup fönsterkarm i marmor. Önskar att alla lägenheter fick ha sådana fina huvudsakliga detaljer. Ljusinsläppet var helt fantastiskt också!
