Design Shopping in Gothenburg #2

Hello, here’s the second part of my Design Guide of Gothenburg. I shot so many photos that it took me a while to organise and edit all of them. (p.s. Have a look at my Flickr Album  for more city and architectural photos …)

Summer inspiration

Today is finally a sunny and summery like day here in London which is making me dreaming about summer holidays….I can’t wait to go away in two weeks, I will be posting some pics from my favourite place in Spain.

In the meantime, enjoy this lovely house in Greece designed by VOIS ARCHITECTS :

I love how they use the solid stone for the sink, which is perfectly and delicately matching the grey tone of the rest of the kitchen

The little stone shelf is just magic. I almost want to serve myself a glass of milk 🙂

The Bedroom is so simple, calm and relaxing, the wood and desk chair are the perfect balancing elements to this pure white interior.

The exterior are even more special, I like how the outdoor furniture are mimic the colours of the surrounding areas.

Hope you enjoy it.

The Perfect Bedside table

Choosing the perfect bedside table isn’t an easy task. Especially when there’s not much available space.

With only 34 cm to play with, this was my selection shortlist :

COFFE TABLE OPTIONS

1. Backenzahn stool | e15 – £638

2. Fosta Stool | IKEA – £ 8

3. Hay Tray Square table – £ 119

4. VITTSJÖ | IKEA – £ 20

5. Butcher Table | Ethnicraft – £ 259

I decided to go for number 3, the Hay Tray square small table, white matte.

I can’t stress enough how minimal, pure, elegant and practical this table is!!! I also managed to get on the latest sales for a bit less than 100£ (yeahhh !!!)

It fits the space perfectly, the only problem I had was that it’s a bit too low for the height of the bed, which stop me from buying a matching one (I’ve never been a big fan of mirrored bedside tables anyway…).

I managed to solve the problem by placing a MUJI shelf raiser underneath, where I can also store some of my magazines and books.

The small Eclisse Lamp by Artemide, is the perfect final touch: a masterpiece designed by the Italian designer Vico Magistretti.

WHAT I LIKE: Simple and elegant

WHAT I DON’T LIKE: The tray sits loose on the metal frame (even if sometimes it’s useful)

WHAT I’D CHANGE: Having a slightly taller option would be nice…

Hope you like it.
