Before and After: At the Blue Table

When I got my apartment, I had to take it furnished and pay for the furniture. Some said, “Well, that’s great, then you do not even have to worry about getting furniture”. I replied that the previous tenant and I had, well, quite different styles. The next weeks I spent trying to sell her stuff that I had to pay for before, and some things I still could not get rid of – not even when I wanted to donate them.

With the help of friends, I painted some walls, cleaned, moved in my furniture and decorated the balcony. We hung up pictures and changed curtains. Then Malin came and we decided to take photos to show you the before and after. Unfortunately, I didn’t take enough before-photos but you still get an idea.

The fabrics and color scheme of the bed room (skin-colored walls an scandalous red) made me refer to the apartment as The Brothel before.

The painting of this room was made possible thanks to the support of Anja and Franz.

The previous tenant had a thing for purple: in the bathroom. And the kitchen. And the hall.

I wish to point out that the Swedish flag that shows in the mirror is not mine.
