Eclectic Apartment That Blends Retro and Classic
If you are a brave soul who is willing to experiment with lavish furniture and vibrant colors, you’ll feel right at home with this place. Surprisingly, this flat may be heavy in its use of prints, patterns and styles, but it is kept from becoming distasteful by keeping the basic things simple.
Take the kitchen for example, which consists of a tall window, a table with two chairs, a counter and a vintage-styled fridge. That’s it! The way in which the space is spiced up is what makes all the difference however, as one panel of the wall is covered with a music-related graphic, the counters are green, and brick walls on either side allow just enough room for a rich plum color to surround the windows.
Posters and wall decor seems to be a key point to the kitchen, as the counter areas are plastered with beverage bottle labels. With this apartment, it all boils down to how the room is decorated—though some tight areas do exist, the apartment works with them rather than trying to create the disillusion of larger space.
Right next to the kitchen space is an L-shaped office area with a generous bookshelf and a proper desk space. The beauty of this apartment shines strongly here, as it makes space (in this case, for books) where necessary, without compromise. Moving onto the living room area, this space is more of a salon than anything else—stringed glass dangles from the ceilings, fancy couches populate the corners, and the walls and flooring refuse to be anything but simple. Black and white stripes occupy one wall, while the rich plum color from the kitchen is seen again. The wooden flooring is comprised of numerous colors, making it effortlessly colorful. This salon is more of an exhibit than anything else, showing off the best statement pieces of furniture that the house has to offer, and rightfully so! Each object makes up a grand and solid space where uniqueness and comfort can come to meet effortlessly.
Logically, the bedroom is kept in a more simple fashion than the rest of the rooms with a low bed and few, solid colors. The red bedsheets go hand in hand with the potent flower design on the wall behind the headboard, and while statement pieces such as the wooden mini-closet mark their territory, it is recognized that this is a space of relaxation above all else.
As for the bathroom, we again see use of color without worrying about hindering spaciousness. Every nook and cranny has been stuffed, and colorful tiles even embellish the inside of the shower cubicle.
All in all, this space is a loud, colorful and zesty one that dares to break the rules with every wall, room and piece of furniture, making it the perfect environment for the brave-hearted.
