400 square feet may not seem like a lot — but that's reckoning without the ingenuity of Swedish design. Thanks to a simple but very smart floor plan, this diminutive Swedish apartment makes living small look positively luxurious.

It's located in Stockholm, and was once available for sale (but sadly is no longer) from brokerage firm Husman Hagberg. Which really isn't much of a deterrent for people like me, who love looking at real estate for the possibilities it presents but aren't much troubled by practical considerations.

The big story here (and probably the thing that first caught your eye) is the glassed-in bedroom, which is a simple but brilliant solution for giving the sleeping space a little privacy while not visually breaking up the apartment (or blocking the light from one of its two windows). This way, you get all the benefits of a one-bedroom, with all the light and spaciousness of a studio. (If this were my home I might add curtains to the bedroom wall, which could be closed at night and pulled back during the day.)

In the living room, a wall of wardrobes provides all the storage this apartment needs.

The kitchen, which also includes space for a small dining table, is quite spacious for an apartment of this size. The cabinets go all the way to the ceiling, for a little extra storage, and the cabinet on the right, I believe, hides the refrigerator, which gives the kitchen a more unified and calming look.
