| Room Design - Light Studio Apartment |

Friday, June 12, 2009
My latest project was to come up with a bright and airy design for a studio apartment for less than $3,000. My client likes to have people over a lot so she wanted plenty of sitting space. For seating I gave her a small sofa, a bench, a Moroccan pouf, a couple of trunks that can be used as a coffee tables or seating and a couple of bar stools. Also, by placing the bed long-ways against the wall it can function as a daybed/sofa. The trunks, bench and nightstand all have storage. And she has a casual eating area with the bar table and stools.

I used white as the backdrop and accented it with natural touches: wood, grasscloth and leather. I also shined it up a bit with the pewter velvet, the gray tufted quilt, the aluminum end table, the steel bar table and the silver chandelier. I hope you guys like it!

    It's only $8.49/roll! I would definitely get samples before ordering it though. I haven't done that yet :)

  4. This is amazing! I am furnishing my own new studio and I absolutely love your choices (I have been considering some of them myself).

    I was wondering if you might be able to share a floorplan for this project? I have the hardest time making the best use of small spaces, and you clearly managed to get plenty of seating, storage, and style in this studio.

    Many thanks in advance!

    PS -- I love your blog! I was directed here by a friend last week and I read every post in one sitting, I can't get enough!!
