For this apartment, we went with a studio feel. A classic red brick wall to bring out a raw apartment feel, cosy simple grey furniture and classic wooden blinds.
We kept the dining room simple as well. Dark wooden table top with matching dark brown seats. We installed a cupboard with distressed wood to add to the rustic vibes.
One of the features that really brought out the character of the living room were these low hanging studio lights. Many indie restaurants these days use light bulbs but we decided to go with studio ones because it was bolder and eye-catching.
To keep the kitchen cohesive, we use the same distressed wood. We created a large island in the middle to make better use of the space and create a division between the cooking area and the home theatre area.
Another way we created a very raw look is by allowing the beams of the house to be shown. What is usually considered unsightly was the cornerstone to creating this studio feel.
For the entertainment room, we kept things simple- a giant TV and very comfy couch. We decided to use glass walls to create a very open concept and make the entire area look spacious.
For the master bedroom, we kept the furniture simple and sleek. The main focus was on the custom wallpaper. To add a tinge of colour we incorporated a bit of purple on the curtains and pillows.
