This collection of five small apartment designs is a fistful of contrasting inspiration. We have something for just about everyone’s sense of home style here. As we journey through each mini home tour, including some of their floor plans, we will hit a few that build upon clean white base palettes; one with minimal decor, one a home with a feeling of the great outdoors, and another that uses rustic woodtone for Nordic effect. We then take a detour from the neutral pallette and welcome the creative use of colour pops and pattern, ending finally in an altogether darker and more dramatic interior affair…
The first of our 5 small apartment designs is a smooth and simple decor, entirely free from pattern. The relaxing visual has minimal clutter or decorative pieces to distract the eye. Calm, plain grey accent pieces can be found throughout the home. Despite its simplicity, the scheme does not appear boring thanks to moments of wooden shelving built into the walls. The geometric coffee table too brings a twist to the pared back lounge.
A round dining table provides a spot for entertaining a couple of friends in this small home.
More seating can be found in the kitchen at the casual dining bar. Double banked kitchen cabinets are valuable extra storage in a small-scale dwelling, with higher units being an optimal space for storing out of season items, or belongings that are needed only occasionally.
Two-tone cabinetry built over and around the headboard maintains a spacious look.
A slither of pebbles edge the bathtub where tiny splashes may fall. Wall-hung sanitaryware makes the room appear more spacious by exposing the clear floor space beneath.
The second small apartment kicks off with a dramatic shadowy tree mural situated right behind the sofa. Teamed with an open flame on the coffee table, this decor evokes a feeling of the great outdoors and camping adventures.
A wall shelf houses the book collection near the sofa.
A circular bar links the kitchen to the lounge area and creates a place for both eating and working.
