This small apartment branches out in clever ways with a platform bed that doubles as an extra seating area and delightfully kitschy accessories. Oversized white fur pillows top the plush green bed cushion while an acrylic table with toy-pistol vase cozies up to the bedside. Transluscent room dividers and a brightly colored mural-sized painting completes the offbeat and eclectic space.
White subway tile spans the length of this bathroom, making the space seem clean and modern. To complement the look, the designers brought in a sleek mirror, floating vanity and glass door for the stall shower.
A retractable wall allows this covered outdoor dining room to be fully open to both the interior and exterior of this modern home. Infrared heaters flush-mounted in the wood ceiling allow the space to be used any time of year. Just beyond the dining area is a fully functional modern bar.
The monochromatic teal color scheme of this modern living room pops against background elements in neutral tones of gray and white. Gold accents bring a modern-retro vibe to the polished space. Roman shades have a similar hue to the paneled accent wall, allowing them to "disappear" visually while still adding privacy and filtering light for TV viewing.
This modern great room features an unusual pendant light over the dining table, a blue sofa with square white coffee table in the living area, and a row of clerestory windows for abundant natural light.
This modern loft condo kitchen features dark hardwood floors, white cabinets with stainless hardware, exposed brick walls, glass globe pendant lights, and antique mirrored tile backsplash with white floating shelves.
When selecting paint sheens, keep in mind that shiny surfaces help to make a small space feel larger because they are reflective, like in this modern kitchen with high-gloss orange cabinets. Use a semigloss sheen to visually expand a small kitchen or bathroom. Softer sheens, such as satin or eggshell, give bedrooms — especially kids' rooms and living areas — a more subtle finish.
The goal of this project was to modernize the open plan living space, but in a thoughtful way that would respect the location and also provide the client, a young single bachelor, with a functional design. The narrow living room space was one of the biggest challenges in the space planning. By creating a wall hung entertainment unit and bookcase, with a large area rug and small cocktail tables, the narrow space was visually widened.
This elegant black and white bathroom satisfies the design wishes of kids and adults alike. The modern design of the space is sleek and elegant, while the details in the space, such as the silver fixtures and exposed piping, add a little edge to the room. The vintage features in the space soften the edges and make a cool addition to this kids' bathroom.
A corner of this clean-lined master bedroom is built for entertaining, with a reading chair placed to receive natural light for reading and a modern dresser that doubles as a TV console. White draw draperies block light and blend with the wall color, visually expanding the space.
