Make A Small Living Space Into Something Special
An apartment with a small space and white background to work with can be a lot of fun to decorate. The right selection of furniture, textiles, and accents can make the apartment space into something spectacular even inspiring, like the apartment in the photographs you see here.
If you have minimal space, it’s no reason not to go all out and give your living space that “wow” factor. In this living space, the light colored herringbone wood flooring is unique all by itself. It can work with any color. In fact, one of the first steps to make your space appear larger and more refreshing is light walls and floors. Making use of light colors like whites and beiges automatically give rooms a clean bright appearance that makes the space come alive.
To complement the hardwood floor, the apartment décor smoothly shifts to a giraffe patterned stone floor in the remainder of the space. Accent rugs create the perfect contrast with an ethnic designed rug in the living room area and muted hued but interesting accent rugs in the kitchen and bedroom area.
Large rectangle windows are a great source of natural light as they extend the room while adding intensity and brilliance. Another component that adds to the distinctiveness of the space is the exposed brick island in the kitchen area. It’s a bold statement in such a small space, but it works!
Recessed lighting adds a bit of sophistication to specific areas, while the suspended lights work perfectly in the living room area creating an art-deco type vibe.
Another unique décor trick is the absence of window curtains. Believe it or not, curtains can make a space appear cluttered if they are not chosen carefully. Using no curtains was the right move for this living space. It maintains the clarity and beautifully carved space of the apartment.
The bathroom space is well-designed too. Though small, the fixtures are placed in a way that makes the space easily usable. It’s ideal for a single person or couple.
Additional spheres that make this small space so distinct are the various textures and patterns used as accents to complement the other furnishings. For example, the stark white sofa is outfitted with numerous patterned pillows all within a particular color scheme and motif. An old chest is used as a table, the kitchen is modernized with Eurostyle cabinets, wallpaper is used in the bedroom adding an artistic quality to the space, and the entryway has its own unique and cozy environment.
