Although the kitchen in this loft apartment is small, it still has the amenities of a larger kitchen. A full size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave allow for ease in cooking, while extra counter space was created with the addition of the kitchen island. On the other side of the island, a breakfast bar adds casual seating, extending the entertaining space of this loft apartment.
This closet is actually located in the open corner of a studio apartment, where fashion expert Lindsay Albanese shoots her YouTube videos. Designer Lucinda Pace of Laurel & Wolf found that Lindsay was using her clothes closet for storing boxes, paper towels, and other miscellaneous items, while her clothes hung on collapsible rolling racks. The designer created this “Style Studio” for Lindsay along one wall to act as clothing storage, a video set and an apartment design element all in one. The chaise, formerly a catchall for un-hung clothes, was reupholstered in ivory microsuede, and now serves as the perfect place for Lindsay to interview guests.
When the couple moved in to their first rental apartment, they were disappointed in some of their space's features, such as the color of the walls, the carpet and the light fixtures, so they focused their design on detracting attention from those things. They repainted the entire apartment, in most spaces using a pleasant, gray color, and placed rugs over the unpleasant carpet. Then, they invested in simple, modern furniture-such as this buffet-that would modernize the space, but could be taken with them when they leave. Finally, they added art and accessories from their travels to showcase their personality and add color and texture to their home.
The narrow space in this studio apartment is made functional with stylish storage solutions, floating shelves, and multipurpose furniture. The colorful eclectic accessories dress up the space and give it added personality.
Large-scale artwork fills this small apartment living room with color. A pink Nina Ricci dress and sequin shoes were used as accessories to personalize and add a feminine touch to the transitional space.
