48 square meter apartment with a bright and functional interior décor

The key to decorating a small apartment is functionality. You need to carefully assess the space and to come up with the optimal plan. Every little inch counts and the space needs to be perfectly arranged and structured. In this case, we have a 48 square meter apartment with a clean and simple décor.

If you want to avoid creating a busy and cluttered décor, you need to keep things simple. You only have to include the necessary pieces of furniture and nothing more. Moreover, expandable and multifunctional pieces are also a great choice. This study apartment features a few key pieces that form a functional and simple décor. First of all, notice how airy the rooms look. It’s because the furniture was kept to a minimum.

Apartment in Barcelona decorated with vintage accessories

Sometimes deciding on a single style for the interior décor is difficult. There are many interesting elements in different styles and it’s only natural to want to combine them all. When that happens, you get an eclectic interior décor. It’s the case of this beautiful flat located in Barcelona. The apartment is situated in the historic center of Barcelona, in the Gothic Quarter.

It’s a 170 square meter apartment with a unique history and look. Its owners wanted to preserve the original charm of the apartment and some of the old features but they also wanted this place to be brought up to date. The result was a vintage décor with modern insertions. It’s in fact a common combination. These two apparently opposite styles can be beautifully combined in order to obtain an eclectic and chic décor.

From an apartment with industrial design to a wooden one

I would probably upset the next apartment’s designer if I would say it looks like a place from horror movies, but this is the first impression that the next pictures gave to me. And that is not even an offense because I really like the place, only that it gives me the chills. It is a cold, metallic place, with an industrial aspect. It reminds me of a warehouse, factory or hospital. But let’s see the pictures and you will decide for your own how creepy this place really is.

The apartment suffered two transformations. The first set of pictures shows you the first transformation. In 2005, the Russian architect Peter Kostelov transformed a single room apartment into a multiple room one, including a living room, a bedroom, study room, library, two wardrobe rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a lavatory and shower for guests. Now this is a great job and a very intelligent way of splitting space! The designer used almost only industrial, or to be more exact, metal materials. This is why the apartment had a cold masculine look, not very welcoming, and, as I already said, a little creepy for my taste.

Old office turned into an apartment by João Tiago Aguiar

This is the RF apartment. It didn’t always use to be an apartment or anything even close to that. This space used to be an office. It was transformed into an apartment by João Tiago Aguiar. It’s a 210 square meter area and it’s located on the top floor of a building in Avenida Rodrigo de Fonseca.

Originally, this space was not suited for private living. It had very little and bad lighting and its internal structure was obviously that of an office, not of a private apartment. However, João Tiago Aguiar who worked in collaboration with Renata Vieira, Ana Caracol and Sílvia Amaral managed to turn this space into an inviting home. The old office only has small openings at the top of the walls. This was not the internal structure that architects desired for the apartment they were going to create.

Contemporary duplex in Sydney by MPR Design Group

This imposing duplex is located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It was a project developed by MPR Design Group  nd it was completed in 2011. The building covers a total area of 750 square meters. It incorporated two attached buildings, each with their own internal structure. In order to create a cohesive appearance between the two structures, a street elevation was designed. It features a white concrete frame elevated above street level with horizontal and vertical western red cedar infill timber privacy screens. On the other side of the building, a large cantilever roof has the same function.

The duplex has large windows and a series of glass walls that separate the public areas from the splendid views of the city. There are also two large skylights on the upper level. They provide natural light while also allowing the inhabitants to admire the beautiful sky.

Inviting 400 sq ft apartment in Chicago

We’re still in the category of small apartment and ways to deal with them so here’s another interesting example. This apartment measures only 400 square feet. It’s located in Chicago, IL and its owner says it’s a really happy place. Let’s take a closer look and see what exactly makes it so cheerful.

The apartmen is indeed tiny. The bedroom is particularly suggestive in this case. The bed basically takes over the whole room. There’s no space for a closet, a desk or even for a nightstand. All the elements had to be reconfigured. For example, the nightstand was replaced by a platform hanging above the bed. It serves a display pace but also a functional storage area for useful things. Notice that it incorporates four different compartments, each with their own interior space. There’s also another small shelf near the bed that serves as a space to store books.
