This dinky apartment layout holds a whole host of cool features, designed by Lera Curve, who might have us consider: â€œSmall space is not a reason not to dream of something more, something light, airy and beautiful. Maximize open space, light walls, light furniture, natural materials and color accents create a feeling of spaciousness and freshness.â€ This urban situated home interior has been created to give the dweller a sense of existing outside the city when at home, a place to feel the freshness of nature and a sense of rooted tranquility.
First things first, you cannot have a tranquil space with all of your random ‘stuff’ cluttering up your zen. So take a tip from this small open plan space and hide everything away in a generous bank of tall storage units. When there isn’t much floor space you should always look up, high ceilings become a clutter-bug’s friend when it comes to finding installation space for cupboards fit for some crafty concealing. These units have been built in a plain white material so that they blend into the surroundings rather than stand out, whilst a couple of display shelves have been picked out in light wood tone, floating against a skyscape of fluffy white clouds.
The home office area extends right out of the storage bank, which gives easy access to files and stationery supplies.
The desk is of a ingenious design that swings away to disappear into a slot left between the cupboards, leaving the living space clear and spacious looking. Over at the windows, roman blinds in a delicate floral fabric introduce playful hints of a countryside setting.
On the opposite wall, bold green tree silhouette wallpaper spans the area, along with two floor to ceiling mirrors that create the illusion of extra space and light.
A wall mounted entertainment unit prevents the floorspace from being eaten up, and a flatscreen TV keeps things sleek.
Instead of sofa end tables, tiny shelves provide a place for reading lamps and beverages.
Even a small dining area has been made possible in this well thought out space.
Colorful choices in the shower room/utility room distract the eye from its limited proportions.
