I was looking for inspiration the other day, and I found this cute little home in Gothenburg. While looking at all the beautiful details, I actually started looking at all the champagne bottles. Suddenly I got the urge to hop in a car and drive to France and buy bottle after bottle. I wonder if my husband would feel the same?
When we planned our wedding reception back in 2007 we wanted a fancy wedding cake and lots of champagne. We were students back then with a little girl and didn’t have enough money for a big wedding party – but we wanted to splash out on these two things. I haven’t regretted it one moment. It’s still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Some people didn’t understand our decision, but I loved the fact that we didn’t care. It was our party, and that’s how we wanted to celebrate the day with friends and family.
But somehow the champagne bottles haven’t been that big a part of my life since. Of course, we drink a few bottles on New Year’s Eve every year and on special occasions. However, I would love to pop a bottle on a Saturday night as well. I think I’ll add “drink more champagne” on my life goals. That’s not a bad plan if you ask me.
Back to the apartment
I should also add a comment about the apartment – it’s only fair. The styling of this small home is pretty impressive if you ask me. It’s a small apartment, but it’s got everything you need. I cannot help but admire the smeg fridge. I’ve loved it forever, but now I’m not so sure I would actually buy one for our kitchen. I’m convinced that our old fridge will be the next thing to go in our home. So I’ll have to decide sooner than Iater. I’m also in love with the old rustic door. What is your favourite part of this home?
First of all, happy Valentine’s Day. I hope you get to spend the day with the one you love.
Today, I’ve got something small, but quite special for you. I’ve got 36 squaremeters of cool interior details for you.
Sometimes I wish I could do it all over again. By ‘it’ I mean live in a small apartment, living the life of a student and getting by with less. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade my family life for anything <3. But do you ever wonder, what might have happened, if you’d made a different decision along the way? How your life would have turned out. I always find lots of inspiration, when I look at these small one or two-bedroom apartments.
The one-room apartments are my favourite, because I love seeing how creative people are, when they have to work out how to create a functional home as well as an aesthetic home.
This 36 squaremeters apartment is a very good example. And the most important thing… it works brilliantly. I love how the sofa has been used to mark the relaxing zone. The darker wall, which marks the bedroom area is a perfect contrast to the otherwise white apartment.
This is the perfect inspiration for me right now. After two days filled with playdates, a sick daughter at home, the fact that my grandfather would have turned 90 years old today (I still miss him so so much every single day), a head filled with way too much information and things to think about… the list is long, but I’ll stop here. Well, I need and want to focus on something else.

I’ll continue my smaller living theme today. I came across this beauty on Stadhem this morning. The apartment is only 38 square metre – just a tiny bit larger than my very first place. Just look at the amazing built-in-storage solutions, the cool collage above the bed and the beautiful black kitchen.
This 45sqm apartment designed by INT2 Architecture is really amazing. I cannot stop looking at the cool bar area, all the lovely storage space, the really cool bathroom (oh, I just love that). If you live in a small space, have a look around and maybe you can add some of the storage solutions or other cool details in your home.
