Modern life: a décor-centric small apartment for living well
When this couple decided to move in together, they did so with a common vision of what home should mean. Between the walls of their one-bedroom apartment, they’ve distilled their mutual love of order, elegance and entertaining, creating an inviting space they’re pleased to return to every single day.
A small kitchen that packs a punch
Aesthetically, their kitchen is nothing short of charming, with art on the walls and a natural colour palette tying it all together. But beyond beauty, their kitchen is a deeply practical space, with open and closed storage holding everything they need.
The do-it-all dining room
To call this space their dining room feels a bit limiting. Yes, this is where they eat most of their meals, but it’s also sometimes where they work, lay out maps to plan their trips, play cards, and serve up snacks for their friends when an evening soiree is underway.
A lively, friend-focused living room
Their graphic sofa draws the right kind of attention, while still being a comfortable spot to sit and chat for hours on end. With everything in arms reach, from the next record to a delicious snack on the coffee table, it’s not surprising that afternoon tea often evolves into evening drinks.
A curated sleep space for two
A free-floating bed immediately greets you as you walk into their bedroom. With just three walls, the placement opens the space up for other things, with the bed creating a natural walkway behind for them to open a curtain and access their impeccably organised clothing collection.
A bathroom for get up and go style
Like the rest of their home, their bathroom has been designed with both beauty and function at its heart. Wooden shelves, woven baskets and waffle weave towels make for welcoming touches while clean, white storage provides the space they need for their toiletries, household cleaning products and extra linen.
