Johanna’s colourful retro home

This is my friend Johanna’s apartment in Sweden. It’s a lovely little studio with lots of colour, retro feel and character. It’s in Slottstaden i Malmo, close to both city and beach.

Even if it’s a studio it has a separate kitchen and a separate part of the living room is for the bed, so it doesn’t feel small – perfect compact living!

Johanna has bought most of her furniture from second hand shops and flea markets. Some pieces are inherited. This, in combination with the green and yellow colours, has created a perfect retro feeling.

Her favourite thing in the flat (apart from her cat Stella of course) is the old record player which she found in a second hand shop.

  1. Gorgeous! I love seeing color in small spaces done well. It’s too prevalent a myth that small apartments must be completely white to not feel cluttered. She’s done a fantastic job!
