To create a dramatic effect in this apartment, designers enlisted the architectural concept of the enfilade, a series of rooms that open into each other, to emphasize the length of the apartment. The series of doorways is what guests see upon first entry to the apartment.
The details in this space help to bring the eclectic style to life. From a Mid-Century Modern dresser to a rustic, woven basket and thistles, this space brings in several design styles and blends them expertly to create a sophisticated space.
Geometric Wallpaper Creates Elegant Design in Feminine Studio Apartment
To create a unique, feminine space, designers added geometric wallpaper, incorporating the walls into the design of the apartment. The wallpaper adds the wow factor that the homeowner was looking for in her redesign.
Black Doors and Casings Add Dramatic Contrast to Penthouse Design
The crux of this dramatic penthouse design is set on contrast, as a black and white color palette anchors the space. To help connect the lounge space to the rest of the home's elegant design, designers replaced the apartment's standard doors with custom, heavy doors that were painted black. They also added black casings around each of the doors to create a uniform look throughout the enfilade.
The living room fuses function and form in a contemporary loft-like design by creating separate spaces within the large room. A stencil is used to create a dramatic feature wall, where a half-circle couch is the perfect spot for hanging out.
Penthouse Lounge with View of New York City Skyline
Designers used the wall of windows to allow natural light into the space, penetrating the dramatic design. The windows also showcase the apartment's magnificent view of the Long Island Sound and the New York City Skyline.
White Transitional Two-Story Foyer with Curved Staircase
A series of curved windows slope with the steps of this curvaceous staircase, one of myriad design details that set this Greenwich, Connecticut, home apart. White walls create a gallery-like effect throughout the space, while custom iron stair rails and dramatic lighting give it contemporary flair.
Contemporary Living Room and Kitchen in New York Apartment
Shapes and styles are repeated throughout this New York City apartment to create a cohesive design throughout. The contemporary apartment showcases sleek, clean lines and light-colored wood. The yellow living room cabinet combines form and function, serving as an interesting focal point and a practical storage cabinet for spare toys.
An understated design in this loft's master bedroom keeps the attention on the dramatic New York City views through the windows. Built-in wall shelves mimic the design of the windows, while the cool tones of the bed frame and headboard add some contrast.
Interior designer Vanessa DeLeon employs bold blues and creative use of lighting in order to achieve a most spacious feel in this modern studio-apartment bedroom. A cleverly designed decal gives the effect of a headboard and helps to maximize the space.
