While studio apartments can only have so many different layout combinations, there are no similar limits when it comes to decor possibilities. This post looks at five gorgeous studios that each embrace their own distinct aesthetic – ultra modern, natural, urban industrial, sleek luxury, and contemporary Scandinavian style. Whether you’re looking for a new look for your own interior or just want to explore cool furniture, lighting, or floor plan ideas, these apartments have plenty of inspiration to offer. Which one is your favorite? Stop by the comment section to let us know!

While the furniture may fall more toward the minimalist side, this apartment’s distinctive color palette breathes an air of fresh springtime life into this small studio’s stylish interior. Muted springtime tones pop from their background of high-contrast black and white. Smooth matte finishes stand out against materials like the distressed concrete ceiling and tall panels of interior glass for a dynamic and exciting visual experience.

The living room’s furniture appears as part of a continuous installation. A large indoor plant in a recessed planter draws the kitchen’s forest green theme into the pale pink of the living room.

A sleeping resident can enjoy a degree of sound isolation thanks to tall glass bedroom walls. An upholstered headboard provides aesthetic continuity.

This shot is a great example of the diverse textural palette. Furniture and main walls appear silky smooth, with unfinished cinder block and concrete lending a rugged touch. Herringbone floors and indoor plants bring organic appeal.

Illumination is provided by a row of studio lights that fall on both living spaces. A single unique dining pendant centers the table.

Color blocking simplifies the visual plane. The white-on-white dining arrangement falls against a backdrop of white cabinetry to prevent busy contrast. The upper cabinets and nearby walls match in all but texture, and the storage to the right falls within a single block as well.

A variety of small planters make room for greenery even within a small interior.

Visualizer: Anton Anastasya  

Here’s an interesting small apartment that remains relatively open like a studio, with private spaces separated only by a glass wall and a central wooden volume. The decor is light and natural with a touch of modern abstraction, an interesting contemporary aesthetic that allows plenty of room to play with form and color.

The doors actually slide on either end – the leftmost side reveals the office, and the right side opens to the bedroom.

Wire furniture and accessories keep things lightweight to avoid casting shadows or blocking the view across the interior. A few unique plant stands follow the same aesthetic and spread greenery throughout.

Furniture gains a little more structural substance as the viewer travels further away from the window, where shadows are likely to make less of an impact.

The kitchen wide wood panels keeps things simple and fresh, with a white worktop and back splash to make cleaning up a breeze. The chairs are the iconic Wishbone design by Hans Wegner.

One of the drawbacks of concrete and cinder block walls is the relative difficulty of hanging artwork. Tall portraits that can sit on the floor and still stand to a visually appealing level are a great solution for spaces like these.

Rough cinder block walls provide an interesting counterbalance to the smooth wood panels throughout the bedroom. A window peers through to the office and allows natural light to penetrate further into the interior.

On the other side of the bedroom, a fantastic built-in wardrobe leaves plenty of room for the season’s outfits.

Perforations toward the bottom of the dividing wall allow another route for sunlight to traverse.

Visualizer: Julia Myshko  

This gorgeous interior combines industrial appeal with smooth modern design. Exposed brick, smooth finished concrete, distressed wood, and wire accents set the stage. Accent colors derive from the material palette in a subtle way.

The layout remains mostly open, with just a central wood volume and a partial wall to provide tangible borders between the functional spaces. Changes in material mark the borders visually.

Located to the left of the television, an adorable little bedroom can enjoy privacy by way of a sliding curtain. Cool neon typography hangs above the headboard.

A series of portraits hang above the sofa, while small urban symbols adorn the wood panels near the bathroom door.

The small divider doubles as an anchor for the small home office. A cantilever desk was a smart choice, freeing up visual real estate and eliminating the potential for shadows from the large nearby window.

Eames shell chairs complement the kitchen’s minimalist aesthetic. The exposed brick backsplash serves as a focal point surrounded by the ultra-simple cabinetry.

A handsome pair of wine glasses can make the difference on any table setting.

The bathroom’s strict attention to its gray-and-white color scheme makes the handful of red details stand out to an even more powerful effect.

When working with a bathroom as stylish as this one, it makes sense to coordinate every detail – even down to soap and lotion dispenser designs.

Visualizer: Andrey Karasev  

At just 36 square meters in size, this compact studio apartment doesn’t let its small layout prevent it from embracing an ultra-luxurious aesthetic. Marble floors, smoky glass walls, and high end furniture capture interest while keeping things sleek and low-profile.

Both the dining table and the sofa rest against the bedroom’s glass volume. This arrangement feels very “out of the way” without looking like an afterthought.

Although the apartment is square in shape, the bedroom’s placement creates a more traditional L-shaped walking path for easy navigation.

A matte black on black color scheme keeps the kitchen looking simple and modern. Recessed lighting in the bottom of the cabinets prevents the workspace from feeling too dark.

The bedroom’s concrete accent wall serves as a nice textural contrast to the glossy marble floors below it. Layered bedding demonstrates a similar play on texture and pattern.

A stripe of inset lighting sets the mood, while slim pendants provide focused task lighting.

Dramatic black tiles define the bathroom, with hints of marble providing continuity with the rest of the apartment design.

Visualizer: Valery Titova  

And finally, let’s close out the post with a charming Scandinavian-inspired interior that fosters an exceptionally warm atmosphere despite its minimalistic decor. The layout is especially interesting – it’s a studio layout apartment, but the bedroom’s wooden slat walls allow for privacy without blocking the stream of natural sunlight.

Weathered natural wood, clean walls, and whitewashed brick offer a diverse palette of contrasting textures that transform an otherwise minimalist home into a comfortable and homey retreat.

This apartment from Martin Architects is located in Lviv, Ukraine. Measuring 145 square meters, it is the perfect size for a small family or couple to not feel cramped while still being comfortable and cozy. The overall design is quite modern and sleek, with creative room dividers — including interior windows and sliding glass doors — making a particularly interesting appearance. Storage is also done creatively in this home, with folding walls closing off the kitchen appliances when not in use and creative shelving built in throughout the apartment. Take a look inside this cool, comfortable home to get your own design ideas.

Floor-to-ceiling windows give a bright, vibrant feel to the open floor plan living room and kitchen.

The bar for the kitchen is created with a suspended interior window opening, adding visual interest and a playful edge.

The way that bright colors are use sparingly adds more light to the spaces that don’t have as much sunlight coming in.

The spacious living room still manages to feel cozy with the set up of the furnishings.

A wine fridge is a must for a sleek, modern home like this one.

The light fixture over the dining table is almost otherworldly.

Another awesome architectural feature is the way the stove and sink in the kitchen are hidden from view whenever the occupant wants with just the easy slide of a door.

The accent wall in this small bedroom immediately captures our attention with its geometric cutouts.

This is clearly a room for an artistic occupant.

A small workspace near the window gives a comfortable spot for getting creative.

An interior sliding door offers either privacy or openness, depending on your mood.

A neutral color palette makes the bedroom, which is on the smaller side, feel a bit bigger.

The sliding door opens up into a spacious bath.

The electric pink color in the bathroom further carries over the artistic bent of this particular space.

And wood is always a calming presence in the bath.

A second bedroom is a bit darker and features more storage.

Shelving behind the bed means plenty of closet space without bulky furniture.

There’s still room for work or studying in here as well.

Pendant lighting always creates a peaceful atmosphere.

The second bath is also a bit darker, and features some really fun towel storage.

The patterned bathroom tile is unique, playful and still chic.

A walk in shower is the perfect way to end the day — and to end this apartment tour.

When you move your young family into a new home, you want it to be a reflection of what you care about. This single family home located in Moscow does precisely that. From the architects at Ruetemple, the 160 square meter home was designed with usefulness, comfort, and beauty in mind. Starting from scratch with no interior walls, what eventually took shape was a two story home with three small bedrooms and a spacious common area for work, play, and quality family time. Throughout the home, stark white and beautiful wood grain take the beautiful design to the next level while lamps from Imex, bathroom details from Roca, Villeroy and Boch, Hansgrohe and Geberit plus granite tile from Italon work together in perfect harmony.

In this particular home, the family spends a great deal of time in common areas, making it critical that these spaces are bright, open and welcoming.

The creative netting between the first and second floor of the home makes for not just an interesting design element but also a fun, safe place for the kids to play.

Of course, the pseudo-hammock is not just fun for the kids. Downstairs, indoor house plants drink in the copious natural light.

There is a lot of visual interest on the lower level with vaulted ceilings and interior cutaway walls.

Decorative elements in the house are simple, yet notable like the geometric dining room pendant light that hangs over the table.

The white and wood design elements work in unison and give an automatic clean feeling while small splashes of color like from the table planter are natural yet fun.

The cutaways into the stairwell keep anything from feeling very far from sun and bring a unity to the design.

When the house was originally purchased, there were no interior walls at all, giving the architects free reign to create something completely unique.

The simplicity of the interior colors and materials is no mistake. In addition to white walls and ceilings, nearly all the furniture is made from pine or beech.

As night falls, the magic hour takes over the common area beautifully giving it an otherwordly glow.

And as the dark settles in, light from upstairs makes the house look as if it is alive and lit from within.

Storage is always a consideration in homes where there are children and these built-ins let the kids easily access their own toys and supplies.

Because most of the family’s time is spent in the common downstairs, the bedrooms upstairs are cozy and small. The wood bedroom details, from expansive shelving to a beautiful custom platform bed are perfect for the smaller room.

The staircase is another focal point of the home’s design, winding its way upstairs through the center of the house.

Being able to peek out from the staircase on the way upstairs makes this much friendlier than a closed off stairwell.

There is never a bad time to lounge on your own built-in hammock wall.

With proper supervision, the wall netting also makes for a fun play element.

The kids can easily race up and down the central staircase to access their bedrooms or the kid’s area beneath the stairs.

Wooden staircases are not exactly graceful or sleek, but the Wave staircase makes you change your idea about wooden stairs. Christian Siller, the designer and innovator behind Siller Stairs used bent shaped wooden treads to create a staircase that’s also a sculptural element and the main attraction of the place it’s placed in. The bottom side of the treads is shaped like waves and the bent hardwood used for railing and support is very suitable to create a breathtaking look.

Scandinavian style isn’t synonymous with bright colouring. Exposed brick in reds and greys alongside white French windows and light-wooden furniture are characteristic of the style. Bring Scandinavian styling and dreamy pastels together, with these three apartments for inspiration. Want a baby pink couch in your lounge? Pair it with a pea green coffee table, flowing chiffon curtains and monochrome accessories. Love a boldly patterned wall? Pair your polka dots with pops of pastel and lightly-coloured wood. Smear pastel across iconic prints, afront a mint feature wall. Paint in pastel with these three inspirational interiors in mind.

Visualizer: Imade pastel  

60sqm can be made into a decal-filled Scandinavian interior, as this pastel apartment shows. Using splashes of baby pink, soft teal, grey and white, each coloured element surprises by stretching beyond the eye’s expectations. In the living room, a triangular pattern forming a rug on the floor stretches up to a wall decal, where it becomes larger and more alive. Reflected in a motley of patterned cushions and decorative plates, the theme extends and is punctuated by a striking photo of a woman in vintage dress. Simple Scandinavian furniture in two round coffee tables and a wooden shelf hold pastel accessories. Hints of green in two mini cacti and a potted tree inject nature.

From the couch, a different view presents itself. Breaking the white of the kitchen and above-TV wall, a wooden entrance painted in mint green leads to a simple front door. Paired with white coffee tables, a middle cabinet and breakfast tables, white acts as one colour amongst many in this interior’s palette. With the help of Scandinavian shelving and more potted cacti, the look becomes consistent across the space. A pink, white and grey block cabinet laden with art deco prints spots the difference.

At another 45 degrees, a kitchen in teal makes itself known. A white French window opens up the space, while the white breakfast table ensures light is not obstructed. Mid-tone Scandinavian wood graces the counter, while patterned cushions, pastel and chrome appliances mix the old and new.

Stepping back to form a fuller view, tile brickwork in the splashback and an iconic SMEG in sunshine yellow round off the kitchen’s look. Against a mast of white, pastel crockery visible through glass cabinets draw the eye high and back to the door, a veritable smorgasbord of sweet treat illustrations. A matching yellow painted bench gets the final word on the way out.

Visualizer: Duong Arc  

Marie Antoinette and Frida Kahlo headline this pastel apartment space, a mix of coloured walls and more muted offerings. Painting its French dado cream, a burst of mint masts this room of many leaning prints. A black leather couch peppered with stone and monochrome cushions eggs on a charcoal rug, as Scandinavian plant stands dot the room. Towards the right, large sliding doors open up to a balcony and mirror the legs of furniture – the round coffee table, the gold legs of a pod chair coloured in stone. A pale wooden floor zigzags its way to a low TV cabinet and TV which, in its thick frame, mirrors the prints on its opposing side.

Towards the other corner, we face a beautifully-integrated and unmistakably-Scandinavian dining room. As French dado skirting winds around the walls, Marie Antoinette’s image is painted bright with graffiti atop a square standing cabinet. Black, white and wooden Scandinavian-style chairs, sourced from About A Chair and designed by Hee Welling, add a focal point that isn’t too busy. Indoor house plants in the form of large potted trees, sprayed ferns, moss and cacti tie the room in, while a cluster of glass and earthenware jars provide a centrepiece for the table.

A quick turn around the corner reveals a quiet and traditional Scandinavian kitchen. Taking a break from the colourful main area, the kitchen occupies two walls framing a large window. Sitting astride stone-coloured walls, one side features an inbuilt oven, stove and chrome extractor fan; the other a large bench and sink area cradled by a fridge. French panels reminiscent of the lounge’s dado panelling are broken by glossy white tiles, a Scandinavian staple alongside wooden benches and rows of spoons and ladles.

Visualizer: Pavel Pisanko  

Light, bright and dreamy, our last interior uses block pastels and bold patterning to effect. Focused in a lounge coated in white walls and flowing chiffon, a pink three-seater welcomes us in, with a soft grey wingback and lilac recliner as sitting friends. Lit by a sprinkle of wood and glass pendant lights, their differing heights create a relaxed feel over white and green coffee tables. A pale wooden floor gains interest with zigzagging detail, a narrow row of shelving interest with wine. Almost hidden by the impact of surrounding white walls, two rectangular arches create easy flow across the space.

Towards the left corner, a study space lurks in almost full-scale white. Broken by two monochrome quote prints, grass pots, a wooden figure and mint reading lamp, the space is framed by three windows that enhance light and provide a view outside. A simple white school chair and steel-legged desk are stylish tools for working.

Through the white rectangular arches, the dining room beckons with a pastel mosaic adorning the wall. Two Muuto Unfold Pendants, made of silicone that rolls up on itself, drop light on the table without drawing too much attention. Continuing the pastel theme, a company of chairs painted in baby blue, pink, white and wood create a scene on the same zig-zagged wooden floor. Matching the dining room pendants, a long line of chiffon curtaining provides a softer background.

The bedroom dazzles with full-scale polka dots across one side. Matched by a stencilled maze patterning the wooden cabinet, its subtle texture is lit by bedroom pendants above a low-lying bed. Two slat benches either side elongate the space, while a wood and thick, iron-legged end table provides a place to drape clothes. With Scandinavian accessories in the form of vased twigs, glass bottles, monochrome prints, and potted plants held on window ledges, cabinets and painted ladders, a rocking chair and two pastel Muuto Mhy pendants offer the final touch to a bedroom daringly different.

They managed to create an outstanding collection that combines the Italian know-how with the American history.

The pieces combine Canaletto Walnut with DuPont Corian for a stylish and contemporary round bath tub and remarkable mirrored vanity inspired by furniture design.
If you’re used to bathroom furniture sets with cabinets that hold the sinks, you can forget about them once you see the Dressage bathroom collection. Made using solid wood pieces that are exclusively handcrafted in Italy from Canaletto walnut, wenge or oak, this is a fully customizable vanity piece. The freestanding vanity unit is covered with a Corian surface and it can include a sink and be accompanied by a tray, shelf, towel hook, set of soft-close drawers and a rectangular, rotating mirror.

The ultra-slim design of the console could fit into any bathroom without taking up a whole lot of space, and if you are super worried about aspect, don’t really need to, because the plumbing is hidden within so you don’t see any pipes or drains.

The tub is also made from a thermoformed panel of Corian, combined with solid wood to give a graceful, strong and beautiful look. Its angular cut along its entire section creates an invitation for entering and an elevated area that allows one to stretch and relax.

Reddit user KahlumG shared photos of this amazing hobbit-style home located outside of Tomach village in Scotland – this incredible residence is the result of tireless effort by a husband and wife team who salvage, craft, sew, and carve to create their own magical mind-bending wonderland from the objects they can find in the wilderness around them. While the verdant exterior of the home is certainly breathtaking on its own, the rustic interior is filled to the rafters with even more one-of-a-kind delights to explore and enjoy. Would you ever adopt a magical retreat like this one to be your full-time residence?

The exterior of the main building is constructed almost entirely of concrete, allowing a variety of gorgeous vines and mosses to take root all over. Concrete’s ability to weather quickly will lend the home even more character and charisma as the years go by.

Most of the woodwork is salvaged and hand-carved by the owner, including this whimsical front door. Other features are repurposed from existing objects, like the adorable barrel succulent planters on either side.

Parts of the home protrude from the main volume and feature traditional sod roofing. Not only is the sod beautiful, but it’s an effective natural insulator.

The exterior blends garden and patio. Flat paving stones enjoy their own touch of mossy green.

Here’s a look at the nearby greenhouse. It’s equipped with its own lovely little pond, complete with its own water wheel and tiny arched bridge.

Artwork hides in the most unexpected places – a face peers out from the end of the roof purlin.

Bold iron details lend the entryway an intriguing medieval appeal. The round door leads to a small mud room with a more practical interior door on the other side.

As the stylistic influence would imply, the home itself does face a bit of vertical restriction – it might not make a comfortable residence for the tallest of people, but it would still be fun to visit and explore!

The interior is unbelievably cozy, filled with distinctive patters and textures and furnished with amazing hand-crafted works of art like the coffee table and small stool made from whole slabs of tree trunks.

A long curved sofa leaves plenty of space for small collectibles and knickknacks on the remaining surface near the wall.

Many of the wood decorations would make interesting DIY projects. The picture frames made from knotted wood slices would be fun to make with some woodworking know-how.

The open plan layout helps to mitigate the effects of living within such a small floor plan. The living room opens up into a cozy kitchen equipped with a traditional masonry heater and cook stove.

Even the sinks have their own sense of charm! Can you imagine tidying up after dinner to a view like this?

Despite its limited size, the kitchen still maintains plenty of space for storage and to display a variety of interesting serving ware.

A stunning curved staircase leads to the bedrooms, office, and other private areas upstairs.

No part of this home is ordinary. Even the bathroom design goes above and beyond to feel like a secret retreat in the forest.

The bedroom isn’t short on warmth and comfort. It’s not short on storage, either – plenty of built-in cabinets line the walls to make organization a little easier.

All of the quilts are handmade, a true labor of love.

The upstairs also features a small office. The desk is made from a recovered tree trunk with the worktop carefully carved from a branch.

Unbelievable pieces like these fill the home, sturdy enough to remain heirlooms for generations to come.

When a stylish couple wants to settle down and start a family, it can be a challenge to marry the design ideas of the adults with the needs of a child. In the three apartments featured in this post, designers have found a way to do just that. A playful kid’s room need not fall victim to a deluge of toys. Rather, choosing the simplify and keep things organized while incorporating playful, colorful, and interactive elements will make a space that is fun for the children and still attractive to the adults. Take a look at the three apartments below to get ideas for your own family space.

Visualizer: Espace Team  

An open living room with clean lines doesn’t need a ton of space to feel big.

Indoor plants always brighten up a space that is otherwise largely neutral

When the living area flows into the dining room, everything feels bigger and it is easy to entertain.

Natural wood features give an otherwise modern space a bit of a rustic feeling.

Incorporating a child’s bedroom does not have to mean sacrificing design, as seen here.

The cozy sleeping area easily accommodates sleepovers with its sectional design.

Opposite the sleeping cubby is a drawing wall, inspiring creativity in anyone who comes into the room, as well as a unique table lamp that adds a pop of color.

For the parents’ room, the theme bends towards tropical.

A leafy accent wall provides the perfect backdrop for an Eames House Bird replica.

The wood beam ceiling is another natural, yet modern, element.

Designer: Nataly Solovey  

This next home also features the spacious flow of an open floor plan.

An overstuffed sectional sofa in the living room is positively inviting for parents, children, and guests alike.

Using custom shelving to create a divider wall is creative and practical.

The design here goes to show you don’t need a mansion to have a cute (and useful) kitchen island.

Even a smaller home can have room for a home office if things are arranged right.

Nothing makes an otherwise empty corner inviting quite like a comfortable reading chair.

Dining pendant lights help to define the dining space within the kitchen area.

Vibrant green chairs at an extendable dining table add life to the neutral color scheme in the dining room.

Moving into the little girl’s room we get pretty pops of pastel pink.

A pint sized teepee is a perfect hideout for kids of all ages.

Despite the color scheme, this room doesn’t get too girly.

Many bedtime stories are sure to be read on this beautiful plush pink sofa.

And every little girl should be encouraged to dream.

Of course, dreams won’t get you too far if you don’t have place to study.

The purple from the little girl’s room carries over into the accent throw in the master bedroom.

Gray and purple make perfect bedfellows. The unique bedroom pendants that dangle overhead are the Secto Pendants by Seppo.

A simple platform bed keeps the room looking sleek.

Smaller spaces call for an absolutely organized closet.

Tiled bathroom walls give a warm, unified feeling.

The neutral colors throughout the bathroom make it feel comfortable and zen, which is exactly what you want.

You can see in the floorplan just how well the space is utilized in this design.

Architect: O.M. Shumelda   Designer: O.M. Shumelda  

In this final apartment for a small family in Lviv, a large dog sketch takes center stage in the living room.

The yellow sofa and striped rug give the design a chic feel while custom wall storage adds practicality.

Lucite dining chairs are highly modern and make the space that much more open.

A white and wood kitchen is perfect this the amount of sunlight streaming in.

The kids’ room here features a unique double desk for twice the homework.

Sleek wood floors are stylish while also easy to clean.

A unique bed from and kids night light bring a sense of childhood wonder into the space.

The parents’ room has its own sense of playful that many white bedrooms might not accomplish.

Living in a studio apartment is perhaps no one’s dream. But for the urban professional or studio, it may be nearly impossible to find a place that is both affordable and spacious. Luckily, the right design team can turn even the most cramped-seeming studio apartments into comfortable and even stylish homes. The five apartments featured in this post have only one room, and still manage to include space for sleeping, eating, cooking, and even entertaining. With a little bit of creativity and the right furniture, it is possible to live comfortably in a studio.

Visualizer: Top Lab Interiors  

A studio apartment can feel incredibly spacious with the right furnishings and layout.

By putting a small dining table in the kitchen, it is even possible to comfortably entertain.

Light, neutral colors as well as a few decorative vases help to keep the space feeling open.

Creative storage solutions, such as a vertical bicycle, are an absolute necessity.

Smooth surfaces on the walls and floor as well as recessed lighting gives just a little bit more room.

This little office nook gets enough natural light that it doesn’t feel claustrophobic.

Keeping decor minimal with custom neon art is another way to keep the space from feel cluttered and small.

Everyone will love how they look in this ring light mirror.

You can see how many distinct areas are made out of a relatively small space.

Visualizer: Arch Ants Studio  

This little loft in Kiev, Ukraine is just 45 square meters.

An exposed brick wall is always a nice industrial touch for a studio.

Shades of gray throughout the apartment keep the design feeling sturdy and a bit serious.

The industrial style home decor is visible in a few ways here, including the Edison bulb lighting and the vault detail on the door.

The cozy gray sofa opens up for lounging and even sleep.

The cool pendant lights in the dining area are standout decor features.

Another cool lighting feature in the bathroom hangs overhead.

Even without a built in soap dispenser, the bathroom is incredibly sleek.

Visualizer: Polygons  

The third apartment in Lyiv measures just 29 square meters.

Despite its small size, the apartment houses a living area, kitchen, work space, and bedroom.

A ladder leads up to a lofted storage space while elegant wine glasses indicate plenty of room for visitors.

The work area is surprisingly spacious.

Wood kitchen bar stools take the place of a formal dining area.

A glass shower stall with built in shelving is the ideal solution for a small bathroom.

A black tile backsplash gives the bathroom a modern edge.

The design clearly uses every inch of space in a practical and creative way.

Even a small balcony is accounted for in the plan.

Visualizer: BEZMIR NO  

More deep colors in the fourth studio give it a heavy, masculine feel.

Small concrete planters on the coffee table lend a splash of vibrant color.

A mounted television is a must in a small space.

Sliding glass doors offer separation without closing things off too much.

The bedroom, too, is gray but in lighter, cozier shades.

Bedroom pendants offer a clutter-free lighting solution.

Soft gray curtains are perfect for a bedroom to dampen sound from concrete walls.

Another mounted television and a few more indoor plants are a breath of fresh air.

A cool gray bathroom completes this studio tour.

A few views of the layout of the apartment.

Each square meter is used carefully.

Architect: Demirce Architects   Visualizer: Anna Fedyukina  

The final studio is a student apartment concept for a hotel in Turkey.

Bright colors and natural materials give this studio a hip and inviting feel.

Carrying the color scheme through to the bathroom makes it all feel unified and therefore bigger than it is.
