So there’s something about a tiny 1 bedroom apartment that captures the essence of homeyness like no other kind of apartment can.
I kind of fancy myself an amateur designer, and I felt I needed to finally show what I was capable of here.
The entire apartment was a grand 275 square feet. As a result, still, the overwhelming cuteness of what was possible here sold me on it. I’m almost sure I thought at first that it was a step down -a sacrifice I had to make to be closer to my work, when I moved into a little apartment I had rented that had just been created of spare space in a larger apartment in the middle of town. Anyways, the kitchen was pocket handkerchief sized, big enough for a refrigerator and for two people to stand in, and the bathroom was the size of a shower cabinet. I know that the bedroom was 8 feet long and wide, and the living room was not much bigger. On p of this, the overall theme was to take a prewar ambience.
Everything else needs to be mercilessly cut down on.
While everything needs to be perfectly organized around the house, for the most part there’s no worse a space stealer than clutter or poor organizing.
Almost any room in the house when I moved in into the apartment was just a spare whitish box. Essentially, I started by taking out the industrial looking windows and replacing them with beautiful antique ones. Nonetheless, the philosophy you should go by decorating a 1 bedroom apartment is to let the beauty of the walls and floors bring in all the beauty. Furthermore, I put in window niches, antique doors and moldings around each door and window. I painted the floors with real finesse to bring out the effect of the richly inlaid floor, and got the most comments for this. Having rugs and carpets means you’ll have to note quite often that you don’t seek for to trip, and it can be really bothersome. That’s a solitary indulgence in the place.
While everything still looks quite cluttered, the serious issue with leaving a spare white box as Surely it’s, is, that identical small space a lot.
Over one my bedroom end, I used wallpaper with a beautiful Eastern design.
It really expands the space I have. I know that most people will tell you that you’d better pick light colors verging on white to make a small space appear larger. I find that it doesn’t really do that. Basically, warmer colors, a mild violet, a beautiful maroon -these colors tend to actually, transport you to a state of mind where you feel that you are in a lot better place than you actually are. Remember, after that, there was the storage space -plenty of storage space in shelves hung on the walls kept all my stuff where it belonged.
