Page is under construction. I am presently unable to find the floor-plan for this flat. I know I have it somewhere and will add it when/if I find it.
The flat at Diagnosvägen 1D, in Flemingsberg, Huddinge, was my very first flat in Sweden. I moved in in 1974 and stayed until November 27th 1982, when Janne and I moved on to a larger flat in the same house as mine, but in entrance F. It was as one bedroom flat, 68m2, with balcony, on the 2nd floor. The flat was brand new when I moved in. Nobody had lived in it before me.
I was surprised when I re-watched the pictures from that period. Very much red, yellow and olive green… That was what was popular during that period. I had forgotten that was how it looked…
The pictures are of bad quality and sometimes quite fuzzy. They are scanned from their original paper-versions. Click on any image to see a larger version.
At the entrance. Glimpse of bedroom.
Mirror at the entrance
That bedspread still exists. The yellow makramé on the wall was made by me.
The poster on the wall is still around. Nowadays properly framed.
The ceiling lamp is still around. Nowadays in the window in my livingroom.
I really don’t know why all the utensils were yellow or red… I don’t even like yellow… I still like red though, but not in combination with olive green and yellow.
Red, green and yellow…
I hated the color fo those cupboards and drawers.
Those cupboard that didnät go all the way to the ceiling… always greasy on top.
That yellow lamp I gave away to someone. Designer lamp actually.
Very olive green doors to the cupboards.
There was space under the bench for a dishwasher but I never had one. Still don’t.
The door to the balcony.
In the kitchen. Very colorful.
No kitchen fan? Had forgotten that.
The livingroom changed over time and the pictures below are from different occasions.
Early days. Had not yet created a work-corner there.
The daybed corner.
The dividing white and yellow curtain was from Marimekko. Don’t remember what happened to that cloth.
I loved that daybed. Unfortunately it broke when I once stepped onto it to reach something on the wall…
When I moved into this flat, this was the only chair I had.
Recorder and records – in red furniture.
White sofa-table. Green carpet-
That ceiling lamp was with me for several years.
Had a lot of books already then.
Office corner, without computer at that time.
Where did that colorful cloth on the wall go? Have no idea.
Two brown 2-seater corduroy sofas.
