This first studio apartment from uses a modern monochromatic theme paired with smooth plywood wall paneling. The compact living room arrangement sets the standard for the smart space-saving solutions found throughout the home.
Division between living spaces is created with a combination of themed decor and built-in dividers. Here, a striped rug helps define the media area.
The rug’s slightly off-center placement prevents the sofa area from feeling too rigid, allowing for greater communication with the rest of the room.
A freestanding divider creates an implied boundary between the kitchen and living space. It also offers a convenient mounting point for the television, making the media center feel like part of the room.
The workspace features plenty of extra storage to minimize the need for a larger desk. The shelves also double as a display for decorative items to make the living space feel more homey and lived-in.
Distinctive green chairs give the dining area its own unique attitude – a splash of bright color within a uniform interior design. A wooden pendant light by Seppo Koho helps center the space.
