Nestled in one of Gothenburg’s most alluring areas of Linnéstaden, the Luxury Mansionette is a contemporary dream dwelling filled with equal parts elegance and whimsy. This renovated two-story apartment is surrounded by a town brimming with hip cafes, bohemian boutiques and art shops, and seems to bring these outside elements of a delightful lifestyle within its welcoming walls.
Walls and floors are predominantly white with dark wood and exposed brick surfaces appearing for contrast. A fabulous focal point of the main living area is the outdoor terrace which due to its large space, is really an extended lounge area perched over the cityscape. Terra cotta planters dot this area with a sleek sofa, rustic crate table, glass candle lanterns and potted palm adding a cheery mix of styles that flawlessly mesh together.
Down one step from the terrace is the living room which fully opens to the outside via sliding glass doors. Rich timber floors expand to the dining room which features clean-lined mid-century furnishings blended with vintage finds. The master suite basks in daylight with an entire wall of windows. Its bathroom is spa-like with a glass block wall, glazed walk-in shower, deep oval soaking tub, coordinating sink basin and shiny chrome accents. White walls with exposed wooden beams enhance the character of this second-story living space.
A pure white and glass staircase graciously twists downstairs to the main level, and is open on one side allowing its structure to be easily admired from any angle. Floors are painted glossy white and, following a curved brick wall, lead to the kitchen, a cozy and functional space with butcher block countertops, white cabinetry, stainless fixtures and a backsplash of celery-hued glass tiles. Adjacent to this eat-in kitchen is an all-white nursery which is inviting with accents of happy colors. Sliding mirrored doors attract natural light from a side window and create the illusion of added space.
Situated in a vibrant city, Luxury Mansionette is a Swedish dream home bursting with fresh modernism, a perfect dwelling for living, laughing and just loving life.
