The bare and the intricately textured join hands to make some striking impressions in this lovely private residence. Located in the heart of the city of Gothenburg in Sweden, the project adds a subtle twist to contemporary Scandinavian sensibilities by bringing a dash of organic play to it. The typical Nordic sea of white is here beautifully interrupted by swatches of bold and tactile materials and elements, grounding the effervescent in cozier, earthy tones. What results is a beautiful modern urban apartment that embraces the opposites to reaffirm its roots and inspiration.

Instead of standing in stark contrast, the bare brick walls and rich oriental carpets complement the Scandinavian theme, emerging as an intricate backdrop to the serenely toned ideas and elements that populate this modern urban apartment.
