Dark and classic colorus are an unconventional choice for small apartment . The general idea is that light neutrals and saturated accents make spaces feel larger, but sometimes residents would prefer for their compact space to look just as intimate and cozy as it feels.
This home combines the best of modern and traditional elements, straddling the line between rural and urban aesthetics. The geometric dividing wall between the living and kitchen anchors one side of the stylistic influence, with the large skin rug contributing its huge character in turn.
Even the statement chair draws in the best of both worlds. It’s a tribute to the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair, with rustic leather and an industrial riveted metal shell.
The kitchen and dining room peek around just on the other side of the freestanding divider. This allows someone having coffee at the breakfast table to chat with a partner watching the morning news from the sofa.
Around the corner from the entryway and running alongside the kitchen, the chalkboard wall is great for both “before you leave” reminders and ongoing grocery lists.
The bathroom is another great example of modern and rustic influences. The tiles almost look like corroded metal, gorgeous and colorful without tying themselves to any specific theme.
Despite its small size, the kitchen fits in a surprising amount of work space. Removing two of the dining chairs extends that useful surface area even further.
Everything else remains sleek and ultra-modern. These white fixtures easily stand out against their dark background.
The bathtub back splash wall uses small rectangular tiles in brick-like shades to reference the materials used in the living room.
There’s actually only space for one bathroom in the apartment, but the designer included another style to demonstrate how flexible even the smallest spaces can be.
And the space-saving techniques are pretty useful too.
This one maintains the same rugged industrial look but adopts a lighter grey scale palette with accents in bright orange. It feels larger, but loses some of the drama the darker scheme offered.
