Apartments are often designed with couples in mind. Housing small-to-middle size families, a range of styles from across the world show how your kids’ bedrooms, and your own, can be clutter-free and brimming with stylish simplicity. The only question is: how do you design well, with only one person in mind? These four apartments are designed for one-person households – specifically. Whether for gaming fanatics, lovers of inspirational quotes or space-saving minimalists, each of these designs has something thoughtful and functional to offer. White space, light wood and Scandinavian-style designs predominate, allowing room for each and every single person’s design personality to shine.

Our first apartment is the bachelor pad of GyuneXX, a well-known Reddit user. His bachelor-friendly living room shows his love for gaming and anime, blending light wood finishes and black leather together to form the ultimate gaming zone. Measuring only 39sqm, the space is designed to fit a comfy desk space and several DVD compartments, combining functionality with a Scandinavian-style design.

Further extending the space, a film calico drops down to reveal a cinema room, perfect for displaying movie favourites.

Light-wood panelling continues throughout the space to the kitchen, which mirrors the TV cabinetry. Touches of light wood on the kitchen table and armchair fixtures create cohesion throughout the space, while a panoramic print behind the sofa creates a focal point.

The virtues of interior design make themselves clear in the alternative options for this space. Using the same 39sqm, the space is transformed from bachelor pad to light and dreamy studio home. In the living room, geometric patterns hint to a gaming background, which are reflected in the cushions and rug. Mustard in-panelling in the kitchen draws the eye between shafts of white in the kitchen and brick wall behind. A second option is provided for the same space below.

Another two options for the living room mimic the same themes. Geometric patterns dominate in the first, with stone-coloured curtains alternating amongst Nordic-style furniture and mustard finishes. The second option shines lighter, with dreamy chiffon curtains and cane chairs inviting a more worldly seat.

The view into the bedroom shows the two themes carrying again. The first predominates in teal, with lemon accents showing in small round tables and couch cushions, the bed hiding behind stencilled white bookshelves. The second hones in on the bedroom, with chiffon living room curtains leading to stone bedding and light-wood hues. Zigzag patterns avert the eye.

A straight view of the kitchen offers a shifting gaze. The first option points to mustard cupboards, with subtle white tiling and lightwood groundings. Option number two uses white tiling as the feature, illuminating its sheen while white cabinetry fades into the background.

Textured white walls personalise both spaces. Minimalist bedding lies behind a two-walled entrance, one sketched in abstract, the other clad in white brick. Scandinavian school chairs offer a view.

A more feminine apartment is shown by our third design. Measuring just 48sqm, this space-saving beauty has character and cosiness in one bold little number. The living room exemplifies this trend, with pops of teal and charcoal lighting up animal and landscape prints on a clean white wall. Hanging bauble lights add elegance.

The view to the kitchen examples everyday elegance. Clean, simple décor is met by high-wooden stools in two colours, with the teal stool referring to the lounge table behind. Thin white Venetian blinds let in the light.

A feature quote in striking black hits the white wall, an impact felt throughout the space. Alternate white and teal school chairs offer a space to tired diners. Hanging wall shelves add functionality.

A mirror within the apartment makes the space seem larger. A matching quote continues the theme, while breaking the juxtaposed colouring.

Softer hues clothe the bedroom in pink and light blue, relaxing colours for dreamtime. Abstract prints framed by dividing curtains let the space come into its own, while clothes hide behind white-panelled wardrobe doors.

Visualizer: Elena Ovcharenko  

Last but not least, a 93.25sqm bachelor pad in Kyiv, Ukraine, offers a stylish shoulder to lean on. Using finishing touches such as a gradating tile-to-wood floor, this unique space can easily transition from boy’s night to family gathering. In the living room, a focal camel couch matches the shade of kitchen wood panels, while a potted plant and magnetic lights add contrast.

Circular elements in the dining table and plant leaves mirror each other, in a space more resort than inner-city apartment. Rectangular hovering benches and wall panels allow the mounted TV to blend in on earthen-coloured walls.

A view to the tile-wooden floor shows personality in a restricted space. Wooden elements reflect themselves in stove housing and wooden chairs, while beige kitchen tiles break the mould.

Barcelona-based illustrator Cinta Vidal Agulló turns architectural drawing on its head with these surreal urban landscapes that reflect the idea that we all live in one world, but the inner dimensions we experience may not match the realities that others perceive. These clever plays on perspective are reminiscent of M.C. Escher’s impossible geometries, but this series goes beyond bare mathematics and delves deep into the human condition – each painting explores different facets of life, purpose, culture, and other existential subtleties. Each composition is painted in acrylic on smooth wooden boards.

Did you think we would leave you #TeamWhite folks hanging after our extensive coverage on black bedrooms recently? Not a chance. Using light, white themes or those with muted undertones, these twenty examples of sleep-enticing bedrooms show how your bedroom can harness both calm and character. Soft textures and billowing curtains unfold to muted plains of light wood, granite and wallpaper. Whether industrial, boudoir, Japanese anime or Swedish minimalist in theme, each bedroom creates a sleeping space to unwind in a busy and bustling world.

Visualizer: Filip Sapojnicov  

Airy and light, this white-walled bedroom takes on femininity with touches of pink. Standing lamps, fluffy rugs and blush-hued portraits add a pampered feel, to whisk sleepers away.

Visualizer: N-Gon Archviz  

Nature often seems harsh, but doesn’t have to be in the bedroom. Leading towards the bed with flattened stepping stones, a standing wooden lamp and low-lying furniture invite calm in minimalist colouring.

Visualizer: Kateryna Senko  

Character can shine in a muted bedroom – if only one knows how to accent appropriately. This bedroom’s wooden feature wall and shafts of white allow striped laundry baskets and daring illustrations to dominate.

Visualizer: NUKO Studio  

Few accents also help create a mellow mood. Here, a low-lying bed aligns with a light wooden bedside table and simple potted plant.

Visualizer: Assembly Studios  

Cultural influences can take shape in a well-designed bedroom. Here, an elevated futon-inspired bed links to watercolour themes in the hanging painting and delicately-leaved potted tree.

Visualizer: M3 Architectural and Construction Group  

More masculine bedrooms can create calm in colour contrast. Using white, high panelling and an idea-balloon side light, black and grey stripe the room in simple furnishings.

Simple patterns help keep a bedroom interesting and idyllic. A high granite wall breaks this room into parts of three, while light detailing in the granite, pillows and throw add focus.

Visualizer: lostbucket visuals  

Even simpler textures can take a bedroom to super-standard. A wave-textured wall draws the eye in this space, while a dark wooden floor and charcoal duvet ground the design.

Visualizer: Dream On  

More colour and design features need not break the feeling of calm. This multi-coloured bedroom, almost patriotic in feel, mixes bold colours with grey, brown and white accents to create a more relaxed feel.

Visualizer: ZIZA Visualization  

Bolder tones can help dominate a room, without overwhelming with colour. This bedroom’s navy feature wall and floor-to-headboard wall accents a space of otherwise muted hues.

Visualizer: Lada Kamyshanska  

Bright colours can also make features pop in a room, amidst simpler background tones. White walls and light wooden floors in this bedroom hero distinctive cylindrical hanging lights and shocking pink bedding.

Visualizer: Linee Studio  

Pops of colour can also contrast with one another – if they are amidst white space. Chinese porcelain, mustard-and-grey and art deco red and greens all contribute to this Scandinavian-looking space.

Visualizer: Julia Shatalina  

Cheeky elements can be hidden in less-bold colouring. Semi-Georgian white panelling holds a triptych series sexual in nature, while similarly-hued bedding introduces the serious.

Visualizer: Kateryna Senko  

Relaxed upon relaxed is the mantra of this bedroom, grey and white and brown in colour. A hanging hammock and unstructured ottoman invite a simple falling down into plush, dreamy cushions.

Visualizer: Jacqueline Ruivo  

Patterns can be bold and competing – if they are held well in the space. Beige-striped walls and a similarly wooden-striped floor hold no barriers to a pink poppy painting and zebra rug.

Visualizer: Andrey Vladimirov  

A minimalistic bedroom is a perfect place for artistic overtones. This almost-industrial room exposes brick walls and bird motifs hanging from Victorian wall patterning. Wood mesh textures and an italic ‘f’ bring modernity.

Visualizer: Freedes Studio  

Wood can feature as well as background. Wooden headboards, chairs, ottomans and dressing tables ground the distinctive wall motifs in this unisex bedroom.

Visualizer: Marc Canut  

A Japanese-style bedroom is a well-known way to imitate simplicity. A futon-style bed and chaise longue take centre stage in this white-walled and wooden-floored space.

Visualizer: aTng 糖  

A couple’s bedroom can add elements of play. Collected items line white stencil shelving, which mimics a wooden chair and chiffon-encased light in this easy-to-live-in design.

Visualizer: Sherin Hany  

A bedroom can, of course, be more feminine. A boudoir style in this bedroom matches perfectly with grey and violet accents and Florentine pattern backgrounding.

While bedrooms are the perfect place to experiment with color palettes and decor choices that might seem too bold for the social areas of a home, these bedrooms take a more practical approach. Dark themes help to center the mind, creating an atmosphere of relaxation to help lull the resident to sleep each night. But not only are dark themed bedrooms practical, they are a great candidate for sophisticated design themes – restrained color palettes show a sense of discipline and targeted attention difficult to achieve with a more whimsical or playful approach.

Visualizer: Anastasia Andryushchenko   

Such a bold and limited palette can make almost any space feel minimalistic, but here, the smart use of subtle texture helps the bedroom remain interesting and immersive throughout. The clever use of artwork continues this practice of contrast by breaking up expanses of sharp angles with smooth flowing lines. Bold black and white meets greyscale only through the effect of light and shadow (with a few exceptions, like the carpet and details on the paintings). Overall, the room looks richly dark but not gloomy thanks to the abundance of pristine white surfaces to counteract the black features.

The directional pendant lights are from the AIM series by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. It’s perhaps the only “sculptural” element in the room besides the wall panels, making it a perfect blend of ornament and function.

Visualizer: Evgenei Artemiev   

Comfortable mocha tones take on a luxurious personality paired with this bedroom’s dark palette. Bold natural materials stand in organic contrast to the matte black accent wall – rich striped wood features and stone floors balance the emphasis on clean lines with their own organic flow. These natural features also help to tie the interior to the small courtyard visible through the expansive sliding doors to the right hand side of the room, emphasizing the natural elements over the clean modern backdrop against which they stand. The black and white photograph? It’s the perfect finishing touch for a space like this one.

The versatile bed frame suits this simple bedroom quite well. It includes a table, drawers, and even a padded bench. The rug speaks to the geometric theme while maintaining the subtlety of a black-on-black theme.

Visualizer: Giorgos Tataridis   

Geometric paneling takes this dark bedroom to the next level. The black and white feature wall creates the illusion of middle greyscale tones thanks to the creative play of light and shadow, transforming an otherwise strict palette into a dramatic feature that draws the eye immediately. Indirect lighting on the white stripe makes this effect even more powerful. In the foreground, warmer neutrals make their stand with strong contrast in terms of both hue and texture – smooth woodgrain and organic brushstrokes versus sharp geometry.

These distinctive chairs are from the Tabano collection by Patricia Urquiola. In the background, the pendant lights are the work of Jordi Vilardell and Meritxell Vidal, from the Match collection.

Visualizer: Harun Kaymaz   

Classical features like intricate boiserie and a grand antique-style chandelier lend a sophisticated character to this dark and sumptuous bedroom. A triptych of black and white photographs fit into the panels directly above the headboard, almost like a window to another time and place, easily reflecting an old-warm charm this bedroom seems to personify. It’s hard not to love the little collection of curios beneath the window, too. Other features stand out as decidedly modern including the brassy geometric side table and the practical recessed lighting above.

The side table lamps are very similar to the iconic Jieldé style, or perhaps one of its many reinventions. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the incredible ambiance the visualizer has captured with the floating dust motes.

Visualizer: Hasankhani Tabriz   

The designer dubbed this apartment “Hello-Yellow” and this beautiful bedroom gives a good example of the name’s intent. Artwork, accent wall, and even the floors are dark, lending even more drama and pop to the soft yellow accents like the lips on the painting and the dandelion gold throw blanket on the bed. The painting, of course, brings the distinctive color theme together flawlessly – its colorful details much more vivid than the textile palette it mimics. To balance out the room’s surreal style, straightforward industrial lighting and furniture remain relics of the world outside.

The lamp to the far left is the classic Fortuny lamp by Mariano Fortuny, designed in 1907. It’s always amazing how historical designs constantly reenter the realm of relevancy.

Of course, it’s hard to close out this bedroom tour without a peek at the enviable walk-in closet. This level of color coordination would definitely belong to somebody who would contract a bedroom like this.

Visualizer: Valium Studio   

To close out the bedroom tour, here’s a look at a room that is exceptionally dark in terms of both palette and theme. The matte black backdrop highlights a typographic installation that counts down the resident’s “days left to live”, presumably based on an average lifespan. The designers created this bedroom with a bachelor in mind, stripping down furniture and personal affects to only the most necessary objects and personally representative decorations. Decorative themes include motorcycles and vintage media – with a little creative planning even the most basic lifestyle staples can become ornament.

The countdown idea is reminiscent of the “Death Clock” webpage that became popular on the early web around 1999. The number of the counter works out to around 40 years and readily drives home the fleeting nature of life.

Home design magazines often feature clean, elegant spaces – showing satin cushions, white couches and spotless bedspreads that soon become the wreckage of children. How do you attain a gorgeous, minimalistic space that all the family can enjoy? These two modern apartments under 1200 square feet from Minsk, Belarus and Dnipro, Ukraine, show how colouring and neutral tones can be both harmonious and child-friendly. Using clever partitioning to divide spaces, competing colours in kids’ bedrooms can be loud – and work together. Neutral undertones and subtle texturing make features out of background tones, creating the illusion of more space. Unique elements set several spaces apart, creating harmony in the space that your family meets, greets, and eats.

Designer: VAE Design Group  

Designed for a family of four, this apartment in Radischeva, Minsk, covers 107sqm in a characterful fashion. Unusual features, split-colour schemes and monochromatics blend together in space well-used, well-partitioned and well-transitioned. In the living room, alternate chequered cushions sit before a game of checkers, atop a blue sofa and afront yellow accents. The result is a space that looks effortlessly cool, calm and collected.

From behind the couch, a monochromatic panel housing TV and entertainment essentials meets the eye. Light wooden flooring, muted grey walls and a lack of clutter help it dominate the space.

Muted hues add desirability to certain spaces, with little quirks to attract the eye. Hunger-inducing beige kitchen benches remind the visitor of coffee and bagels; light-wood slatted lights offer a warmth suitable for illuminating breakfast. Charcoal cabinetry in the kitchen reduces clutter in a busy family environment.

The master bedroom excels in muted hues, with a colourful art contribution above the bed. Dreamy chiffon curtains let in not-too-bright light, while muted light grey, dark grey and navy colours say sleep.

The kids’ bedroom and study injects more play. Lego-esque circles feature on cupboard walls and desk chairs in mustard and teal, tones bright but reserved enough for an office. Twin inlets framed by stone allow Batman and Superman feature walls to battle it out, while cross-matching duvet covers fit rather than match. Under-bed cabinetry hides away the toys.

The family bathroom harks to the marine in an understated way. Metallic silver panelling behind the mirror extends it, reminiscent of fish scales. Electric blue tiling says swim, and textured white tiling ties it all together.

The ensuite binds bathroom duties to master bedroom colouring. Charcoal cabinetry and light wooden features are combined in multi-hued tiling. Slatted wooden ceilings and clever inlets ensure the contemporary feel is maintained.

Designer: Aleksandra Nuzhnaya & Nastya Kravchenko  

Situated in Dnipro, Ukraine at 110sqm, this characterful home was designed with comfort and function in mind. Using neutral colours with a focus on being technology-friendly, it intermixes the needs of a young family with a multi-layered, contemporary look. The living room offers a glimpse into a space used for eating, watching television and socialising, mixing teal, mustard and black elements together with a hexagonal-patterned rug. A black opaque feature wall houses the television, easily hidden away for more formal occasions.

Tying in the hexagonal theme from the rug, the kitchen to living room segue uses geometrical outlines to create harmony. See-through shelving and rectangular wall art mirror each other, while neutral light-wood and plant life soften the resemblance.

The view to the kitchen offers a different perspective. Three black chairs pair with three black hanging lights, a perfect symphony for dining. Two interlocked black-and-glass tables work with new black features and previous rectangular elements. A light wooden cross-room wall and floor adds an unexpected feature.

Hued in light-wood shades, couch and table elements in the study look comfortable but practical. Wood-panelled elements and concrete tiling offer the contemporary, while side-lighting adds a modern elegance. A patterned rug and vertically-painted triptych break the beige.

Twin minimalistic backgrounds create space and interest in the bedroom. A thin, horizontal wall inlet provides the space of a bedside table without the clutter, while midnight blue covers and rich terracotta upholstery adds warmth.

The children’s room allows creativity – within good design. Midnight blue from the bedroom duvet translates to a feature chalkboard wall, for the kids to draw on.

A zen-like bathroom uses minimalist materials to create a feeling of calm for the whole family. A large round feature mirror reflects the wall behind, giving the impression of more space while adding a central focus. Beige and white elements intersect each other in the shelving underneath, and the layout of the simplistic shower.

How do you blend Scandinavian simplicity with Taiwanese culture? This multi-storeyed home, designed by Taiwan’s HAO Design and photographed by Hey! Cheese has the answer. Using white walls, wood and block shapes, this home remains minimalistic while still showcasing Taiwanese anime culture. Using wooden blocks to separate out spaces, vast panes make small areas look spacious, and room intersections look seamless, while anime fixtures dot themselves around the periphery of the rooms. Interspersed plant life in the block design adds colour and vibrancy, while a Mediterranean concrete façade, complete with block windows, harks back to an intelligent interior.

A striking feature, the wooden block staircase is the first introduction to this bicultural home. Using three types of wood for shelving, tables and floors, the living space retains simplicity with clean, simple lines, retaining interest through muted-pattern throws and rugs. Potted and hanging plants add life.

As the day darkens, main living spaces take on alternate functions. The kitchen table turns into dinner. The bedroom’s low-lying furniture affords a view up a level, and lighting illuminates over surfaces, drawing attention away from their casing fixtures. A white rail ensures safety without structural interference.

Views up and down the staircase, the home’s central feature, make for a cathartic experience. Housed in a small space, white walls and solid wood lifts visitors to higher plains within the structure. Plant life greets and farewells each viewer from ceramic box holders.

A spark of colour with a bright, turquoise desk breaks the simplicity of the interior, afforded by the concrete flooring and toned-down wall colouring. Cute elements such as ceramic doves insert a Taiwanese quirk into random spaces.

The block theme continues seamlessly throughout the home. Reflected in the staircase design, French windows and fragmented wood panelling, each block elements tells its own story. Small spaces use the block design to insert light, such as the ceiling corridor French skylight design.

A pop of Taiwanese art finds itself on easels in enclaves and larger-than-life stones on grey wooden floors.

Lush plant life and a teardrop mirror in the bathroom add a Scandinavian cabin feel that feels both global and particular. Full wooden floors, ceilings and walls give the experience of being in another world, while wide-paned windows let the outside world in.

The block design carries through to the exterior, which is as strong by day as by night. Day shows distinct elements present inside, while night illuminates the block design. Extra partitions are made in steel against the concrete façade, mimicking the usage of different woods in a block pattern in the interior. A stone entrance marks a spot of difference.

Located near Kiev, Ukraine, this home boasts a creative and effective 105 square meter floor plan to accommodate a family with one young child and one infant. Designer Yevhen Zahorodnii opted for a minimalist interior theme to suit the busy lifestyle of the residents – minimalism grants simplicity and convenience by erasing some of the material complication from the home, a practical choice with two little ones running around. Some rooms do boast a bit of color though, namely the child’s bedroom and a small office dedicated to study and play. Are you planning to adopt a minimalist style? This home will inspire!

Visualizer: Yevhen Zahorodnii  

The practical L-shaped layout consists of white walls that surround a freestanding volume in dark plywood panels, light floorboards guiding the eye along the length of the living space and toward the dining room.

Simple furniture combines sharp angles and smooth rounded forms. Geometric themes are most noticeable in the functional decor like this large geometric planter and cone-shaped floor lamp.

Even the entryway is effective and stylish. A full mirror allows last-minute checkups to make sure that outfit or makeup is still on point and the built-in seating leaves rooms to store shoes.

Around the corner, a beige-toned kitchen hides just out of sight from the main living area. A neutral take on color blocking works wonders to separate each functional space.

The kitchen is just as simple as the living room. Cabinetry hides behind sliding panels to avoid the need for overhead storage, allowing light to touch every surface.

Rather than ordinary handrails, the staircase makes use of white wires that run the length of the atrium. Large drop-shaped pendant lights illuminate the way.

Wires transition to mirrored bannisters toward the top of the stairs. The floors here are especially unique – white plywood offers a smooth uninterrupted plane of textural wood grain.

Upstairs is home to private spaces like bedrooms and two offices. We’ll explore those next!

One of the offices is for the child, complete with woodcut style wallpaper. Light blues and bright white create a comfortable atmosphere for study and homework.

The desk attaches to the wall on each side of the window for a clean and uncluttered aesthetic.

Attractive shelves leave room for books and study material in addition to toys and other inspiring decor.

Once all of the day’s homework is complete, the young resident can snuggle up in one of these big cozy poufs for some multiplayer gaming with mom or dad.

The main office is more professional. Concrete walls offer a hint of industrial influence, heightened by the strip of indirect lighting that emanates from the back of the cantilever desk.

Creative angled shelving makes it easy to browse the library selection right from the sofa. If the resident uses this as a meeting room, this arrangement would definitely ease the boredom of waiting clients.

Even the entryway is effective and stylish. A full mirror allows last-minute checkups to make sure that outfit or makeup is still on point and the built-in seating leaves rooms to store shoes.

Now, here’s the fun part! The child’s bedroom diverges from the home’s minimalistic theme with colorful walls and furniture, with playful characters like this whale to keep things interesting.

Illustrated jungle wallpaper fills the room with smiling animal faces. House-shaped bedframes are a popular trend for kids rooms, and this lavender frame fits especially well with this design.

Although the child does have a separate office, this desk allows for PC gaming or making quick corrections to homework before bedtime.

Overall, it’s a very fun space with plenty to do and plenty to keep the young occupant’s eyes and mind occupied.

The master bedroom doubles as a nursery for the family’s newest resident. Just like the older child’s room, the small crib includes a “roof” strung with adorable lights just out of the infant’s reach.

While decor remains minimal, the textures are impossible to ignore. An intricate accent wall, a stylish rug, and layers of blankets are a soothing contrast to the smooth surfaces of the main furniture pieces.

A simple glass door leads directly into a spacious walk-in closet.

Inside, a full-length mirror makes it easy to see the day’s outfit at a glance. Abundant natural lighting is a hugely important feature since artificial lighting can change the appearance of fabric sheen and color.

Wood drawers and shelves have classic appeal. Ever-so-slightly notched corners modernize the choice of materials to avoid seeming overly rustic.

The bathrooms are perfection. This low vanity rises to the occasion with a tall vessel sink, a focal point in an otherwise very consistent and minimalistic design.

Here’s a look at the second bathroom, this time with tiles that demonstrate a smooth stone effect rather than the glossy concrete of the other one.

Sometimes it’s hard to find inspiration for simple interior design. When you’re working with a limited color palette or a spare furniture theme, every element makes a huge impression – one little detail can make or break the design. This post explores three modern homes with neutral colors and streamlined decor, each one taking a different approach. The first interior is smooth and sophisticated with subtle industrial themes, the second makes a bold impact with high-contrast tones, and the third home feels softer and more decorative. Each one is worth admiring!

Visualizer: OFDA  

This streamlined interior belongs to a modern one-bedroom home in Tenczynek, Poland, just outside Krakow. While the decor themes remain simple throughout, unique architectural features definitely catch the eye around every turn.

The furniture layout focuses on gathering with friends and family. Notice how the television is present but isn’t the anchor of the living room – in fact, it’s set entirely away from the seating arrangement.

Industrial elements bring urban character into the otherwise wood dominated decor motif. Metal lighting, textural concrete paneling, and linear furniture prevent the room from looking too rustic or cottage-like.

Design themes remain unified throughout the home. Here’s a peek at the kitchen, recessed into its own private cove. Wood floors transition to glossy white tile, the entire room warmed by richly grained lumber in strategic places.

This breakfast bar is especially interesting. One side extends the kitchen workspace with its glossy surface, a great place to work with ingredients that might stain the wood countertops.

Public spaces occupy the ground floor. The bedroom and office takes the high ground. Without access to windows, the wire mesh risers play an important role by allowing light to penetrate into the stairwell.

What a gorgeous bedroom! White furniture stands out against the eggshell-textured black background, simple yet attractive. Copper accents maximize the sense of luxury and capture the light wherever they can.

A large mirror also extends the effect of the room’s single window. The sideboard table makes a wonderful vanity complete with a simple sled leg stool. Additional copper decorations continue the sophisticated theme.

The other side of the room features distinctive cabinets, the upper and lower portions enclosed with the middle units serving as oversized open shelves. Clever backlighting draws the eye toward the decorations within.

Simple yet handsome, the office has plenty of room to accommodate both computer-based work and pen and paper tasks. An exposed brick wall sets a homey tone and geometric prints bring the decor up-to-date.

Another distressed brick wall caps off the other side of the room. The comfortable meeting area resides next to a distinctive series of shelves with plenty of reference material and books to read during work breaks.

And finally, the first home tour ends with a look at the bright and welcoming bathroom. Tiled stairs lead up to the enviable soak tub, perfectly positioned to enjoy a lovely view from the window.

Visualizer: OFDA  

This home is located in Krakow proper. Its modern high-contrast interior adopts a much stricter aesthetic, almost minimalist in its focus. Black and white make up the foundation of the color scheme but middling greys and browns help to soften the look.

Linear forms guide the eye along the length of the open layout living and kitchen arrangement. Strong horizontal elements echo the same of the room, with the diagonally focused print and lamp serving as a subtle focal point.

Bright white surfaces help stretch the effect of the single window toward the end of the room. Within a dark interior, the kitchen and dining areas would feel robbed of their brightness.

Private rooms exist in the portion of the home that hides around the bend from the kitchen. Here, wood floors and white walls transition to a solid palette of warm grey.

The bedroom decor introduces a warmer aesthetic with more middle-toned neutrals. It’s simple, sparely furnished, and makes good use of its narrow layout.

Dramatic black marble definitely turns the bed into an incredible focal point. Thin mirrors border the slab on either side, surely amplifying the effect of the Beat lights that hang in the foreground.

The same black marble reoccurs as the bathroom floor, with luminous Carrara on the walls. As brilliant as these materials really are, it’s the surprising dash of wood that serves as the primary focal point.

Visualizer: Agnieszka Graczykowska  

Designed for a young and growing family, this 150 square meter home has a softer aesthetic than the previous spaces. It introduces more variation in neutrals – a great range of the greyscale spectrum in addition to various light and dark wood choices.

The downstairs floor plan is primarily open but each functional area feels unique thanks to the creatively staggered layout.

While the living room focuses on greyscale design, the dining room is all about natural wood tones. A wide stripe of black paint visually separates the two spaces.

It’s hard to go wrong with the classics. The animal-themed prints are the work of Pablo Picasso, and the chairs are from Hans Wegner’s Wishbone series.

Line of sight persists from kitchen to dining room to living room. This makes it easier for the residents to remain in constant contact with guests while entertaining.

An attractive combination of textures makes the kitchen unique despite its simplicity. Smooth wood grain, composite stone countertops, and rough white walls feel homey yet modern.

Upstairs, the master bedroom feels more expressive than the common areas on the ground floor. Geometric decor feels modern, whereas the low-profile furniture keeps things casual.

Layering plays a huge role in the decor. Varied pendant lights, a mountain of plush pillows, an arrangement of art and mirrors… it feels like home.

And finally, a look at the adorable little nursery – it’s hard not to love the sleepy eyes above the bassinet.

There is something to be said for the details of a home and the things you feel and touch on a consistent basis should be of quality. When choosing elements to decorate your home think about how much interaction will be made between you and that part of the home. Doors for example are just such a detail. We interact with them all day long and they are almost always the same typical thing, flat boring planes with no detail or imagination. The Graffiti and Décor Slim collections of designer interior doors from Laura Meroni are obviously different and really make a statement, literally!

The Graffiti collection is so cool and features the names of rooms you will be entering like the Studio, or Bath for example. Of as we all know it may just as well be the artwork of the artist as seen in the more ornate engravings. My favorite is the contrasting two tone in light wood which allows the lighter woods to stand out. Designer Paolo Rizzatto with graphic input from Paolo Rizzatto created a doorway with a strong jamb that protrudes and puts emphasis on the passageway.

The Décor Slim collection features a unique minimal design and a totally flush door jamb that becomes one with the wall. This is a much more understated look and perfect for super modern interior design schemes where a less is more plan is in order.

For larger entrances that you can choose a set of sliding doors which look so nice. Here the Décor Slim collection shown in a nice medium wood tone adds so much rich character to the look that would be wasted on typical sliding doors. See the rest of the offerings from Laura Meroni which include some great looking furniture items for all rooms of the home and many more doors here.

Here is the sleek and good looking Amadeus upholstered bed from Cattelan Italia made to order in Italy in your choice of synthetic or soft leathers. Their collection of incredibly awesome all original modern designs for both home and office are one to see in person if possible because the pictures are great but the real thing is even better. With the Euro Dollar being more on the agreeable side of the exchange rate for US consumers the Italian good are not only looking great from a design standpoint, they are currently affordable.

The attention to detail is what makes the Cattelan line so appealing as it exudes quality and style that the knock offs simply cannot duplicate even when they have been given the design to copy. With this style of fully upholstered bed that is light and minimal, it is best to choose a night stand that will compliment and not over shadow the bed. Here is one example that seems perfect and the metal leg structure mimics the feet on the bed for continuity of design. In addition this style of platform bed does not require a box spring and comes with the slats allowing for a lower profile yet comfortable night’s sleep.

Designer Manzoni e Tapinassi included a wide selection of colors from the most subdued to a fire engine red that may keep some people up at night. You can combine with the metal available in Graphite, White or Bronze to compliment your upholstery choice.

Coming across a concealed wet bar in sideboard opened my eyes about the possibility of discretion.  There is a lot of truth in not drawing attention to oneself in front of friends, family and coworkers.  Alcohol consumption is frowned upon by many people and by others it is applauded.   It stands to reason that having a stash and keeping it away from a roaming eye is beneficial.   People should choose what they share with others.  As a result, that may require additional planning to ensure what is private, remains so.

Taking a closer look a this item shows quite a bit of craftsmanship and forethought went into the design and execution.  Pictured here is Ludwig by the furniture manufacturer Acerbis.  First blush for me was a very minimal and almost abstract piece that does not flaunt a bold color or shape.  Furthermore, when you take an initial glance, the product does not stand out as if the intention of the designer was to create a subtle piece that one must become better acquainted with to fully appreciate.  As a result of this intention and the fact that what lies beneath are spirits, I can see where that was the purpose.
Acerbis low sideboard storage unit

First of all what strikes me is how Ludwig opens up.  It is interesting how it folds down at the bottom and up at the top as opposed to most storage furniture examples that employ drawers to be pulled out.  In short, one can see how cool it looks when all the doors are open.  One simple pull will take the bottom door down, so a lot of force is not needed to open the piece.

Home Storage Example

Sideboard Wet Bar for the Home

As you can see above, the picture shows a concealed wet bar in sideboard concept better than all the rest.  It is a stunning example to see it at this angle.  I am a big fan of illuminating lights to help people see.   There are ample LEDs when the storage unit open which allow the home owner to see easily.  While the discussion focus is on beverage storage, I can visualize how the space could be used to store other possessions as well.

Finding contemporary sitting chairs is no small task.  Today we present Oyo a great concept from Aeris furniture that dares to challenge our spatial understanding of design.   Construction is meticulous and follows all industry standards of quality and safety.   Hence, it consists of a double tubular steel frame to give it added support and if needed, be able to handle a heavy load while offering long term durability.  For me comfort is so important and in this case there is 5 centimeters of foam padding.  I can see this piece being used as a desk compliment meaning prolonged periods of sitting.  The plastic shell is reinforced and now the technology is so good on making a lasting product.

Dining Room with Orange Seating and Lighting

Examples Inside Homes

This a great image with the corresponding orange hanging lighting.  Note how well the orange goes with a lighter colored wood.  This dining setting is fun and the splash of orange really adds a lot to the room setting. Even with a more conservative painting, this idea would work great.

lime green upholstery in study nook

Consequently, I find the lime green upholstery to be very cool.   I love the setting here in a study nook.  All the white is not washed out with the wood trim on the windows and the colorful seating.


The curve on the seat back had me originally a bit skeptical in terms of comfort.  Seeing the woman resting above shows that it is very workable and that the curves offer more of a geometric accent while the overall design still supports the spine.

It is hard to see, but the legs contain some non skid pads to prevent furniture movement while protecting the flooring.   The blue and shape offers a great view on these contemporary sitting chairs.   Most of us would not have picked a shade of blue such as this, but it works wonderfully.

Especially relevant is the neutral gray tone pictured above as shows a more conservative look that can be put together in nearly any home.   The animal hide rug is a statement piece and the backdrop of fireplace really warms up the scene.  Further, it’s great to see how the Oyo chairs can be moved around so easily giving a homeowner flexibility.
