I Wish I Lived Here: Black-and-White Swedish Apartment

I Wish I Lived Here, Swedish apartment

I should probably start taking Swedish classes, because I can't stop falling in love with apartments I find on Swedish realtor's websites. This latest one to roll across my decor blog transom is located in Gothenberg, which (thank you, Google Maps) is a beautiful seaside city that may very well be my future home. Just look at that apartment! The entryway alone manages to make black-and-white look cheerful -- a theme that carries through the entire apartment's decor scheme.

The black-and-white is accented with vibrant yellow and green, and additional stand-out pieces add intrigue to the apartment's overall look, like the mesh orb light fixture in the living room. The breakfast nook overlooks the outdoor seating area, which is an urban oasis in what is apparently a cosmopolitan Swedish city. Yup, I'm packing my bags. Does anyone know how to say "I'd like to make an offer" in Swedish?
