This one-bedroom apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden, neighbored by a park and the city’s botanical garden, combines turn-of-the-century charm and contemporary design. The 610-square-foot home was discovered by devils-den on real estate broker ‘s website.

With access to an inner courtyard, the apartment provides opportunities for relaxation in the heart of the city. Outdoor furniture, a barbecue grill, trees, plants and birds transform it into an urban oasis.

The entryway unveils two pleasant surprises: brick walls and a welcoming bench. In the open living and dining area, three large windows facing the courtyard bring natural light inside. Black-stained hardwood floors contrast with the white walls and create a neutral background for the colorful furnishings and decor.

The kitchen offers minimalist open shelving and a small table next to a window. On the other side of the kitchen is the bedroom, which features serene blue and white tones. A modern bath with a curbless shower continues the black-and-white theme.
