Situated in a new and eco-friendly part of Bologna, in Italy, this apartment is a stylish representation of what’s possible to create using a very simple palette of colors, finishes and materials. It was designed by the interior design studio of Francesco Meneghello and it features many inspiring little details throughout its interior. Starting with the living area, one can easily realize this is meant a tranquil and serene space that detaches itself from all the noise and stress which defines every big city.
The pure white walls and ceiling and the light wooden floor create a relaxing and very airy type of atmosphere. Furthermore, a set of sliding glass doors reveal a connection between the living room and a spacious terrace with a really nice view of the city. A big sofa is placed in the center of the living area, framed by a patterned area rug with black and white stripes. There’s also a stylish cocktail table in one of the corners and a few other furniture pieces and decorations scattered throughout the space.
In comparison with the social areas which include the living room and the kitchen, the private areas of the apartment, namely the bedroom and the hallway leading to it, have a more intimate and delicate look and feel. They’re decorated and furnished with natural materials and soft color tones as well as mild contrasts, not as harsh as the black and white duo featured in the living room for example.
