They wanted the apartment to feel open while having a home-like coziness to it with combinations of light, materials, and textures.
They worked to find the right balance between natural light that flooded the interior during the day with artificial light that began at sunset. A balance of finishes includes the updated concrete floors and the original concrete details on the ceiling. White surfaces are mixed with black elements for a modern contrast. The kitchen flows right into the living room, perfect for one of the homeowners who happens to be a chef and loves to entertain. Instead of solid walls dividing the interior up, they used glass panels to

A Dnipro Apartment That Focuses on the Kids Without Compromising Design

With 135-square-meters to work with, they made the decision to reduce the main living space to give more room for the children&#8217;s area. That resulted in a large joint space for the two daughters each to have their own place to sleep while sharing study and play spaces. Essentially, that keeps the rest of the <a href="https://www.behance.net/gallery/71001619/Levitation"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Levitation</a> apartment from being overrun with toys and the children&#8217;s things. Even with a reduction in size, the main living area feels bright and open, while remaining clean and modern.

The loft spans 1,143-square-feet with a double-height living room that features a curved balcony above in the same material as the light wooden floors. The curvy element helps keep the interior light and feeling larger than it actually is while creating a feeling of continuity and intimacy. The kitchen was moved in order to keep the main floor fully open so it’s tucked away in a niche. The cabinets fall in the minimalist vein with no adornment and a light wooden finish that mirrors the flooring. Upstairs, the master bedroom is situated behind glass panels, separating it from the home office while allowing natural

A Kiev Apartment That Goes from Minimal to Neon Lights

Working with 100-square-meters, Brothers created an interior that begins minimally at the entryway with a simple wardrobe hanger, a planter, and a framed mirror, all in white, and continues on with unexpected pops of color, neon lights, a swing, and a &#8220;WAKE UP BITCH&#8221; message above the bed.
The all-white kitchen features an island that turns into a dining table with an end seat that’s a swing. Above is a series of cylindrical lights with the exhaust hood cleverly disguised as one. The induction cooktop is also hidden as part of the countertop and only works when the secret inclusion buttons are used. The upper cabinets pop against the surrounding white surfaces with metallic green glass. Next to that, a neon sign that reads

                                You wouldn&#8217;t typically think an igloo would be the inspiration for a residential design but that&#8217;s the case for the latest project from <a href="http://falkenreynolds.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Falken Reynolds</a>. Located in the historic Gastown neighborhood in Vancouver, this <a href="http://falkenreynolds.com/project/the-igloo/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">loft</a> settles in at just under 600-square-feet with a design that looked to the compressed living spaces found in Canadian igloos. In order to incorporate lots of storage in the compact apartment, they referenced the tightened entryway of the igloo and created a central corridor that separates the main living space from the entry, bathroom, and office area.
The main living space feels light and bright despite its compact size. White walls and two large windows help bounce light around the interior making it feel open. The storage structure contains two five-foot closets, laundry, a drying closet, fridge, and pantries, in addition to a hidden staircase that leads to the loft bedroom. The cabinetry was kept

The architects incorporated modern elements that perfectly balance the historic features, like original brickwork, wood ceiling joists, and sloped walls in the attic.
A monochromatic color palette was chosen as it worked well with the architectural details throughout. The brickwork was painstakingly restored and it offers a warm and textured backdrop to the main level living space. The corner fireplace was given new life as the focal point of the sitting room. White panels help brighten the interior while creating a feeling of continuity on the first floor. A hand-assembled metal staircase connects the ground floor with the attic space. Upstairs, the layout is divided into three areas –

The design team proposed to remove the kitchen wall to enlarge the living room area, but after consulting with the owners, chose to retain all existing walls.
To create a coherent and durable space, the architects chose select paintings by Ellsworth Kelly and Josef Albers. Their works, although created in the 1970s, still look beautifully restrained. Assaf Hinden’s photography was in the living room, his reinterpretation of abandoned objects is quite relevant to the concept of the space. The walls are kept bare white so that the furniture would be visually prominent. The architects chose pieces that had similar outlines. Air conditioners were hidden in the cabinets or installed on secondary walls to maintain the flat and uniform environment of the space. Photography by Zhu Siyu and Che

The project involved incorporating lots of storage through new floor-to-ceiling closets that create separation between the public spaces and the bedrooms. Custom built-ins were designed with the same natural and dark stains that will fall to the background when books and collectibles are added. Very subtle uses of color slide into the design, like this blue lounge chair. The kitchen partners a new material – brown marble countertops – with the two wood tones which adds

They began with an unfinished space and reimagined it into a simple, contemporary home that embraced the tall ceilings and its slopes.
To enhance the open feeling throughout, they used a subdued color palette featuring white, natural woods, and soft pastels. Where the wall meets the sloped ceiling, windows were installed on both planes to fill the main living space with ample natural light. Sliding chalkboard doors open up to reveal the child’s room and to extend sight lines to both sides of the apartment.

The apartment, in a 1970&#8217;s building in the city center, didn&#8217;t function the way the homeowners needed it to, leading the architects to design a new layout that gave more separation between the public living spaces and the private bedrooms. The resulting design merges the couple&#8217;s classic tastes with a minimalist aesthetic that offers them the utmost functionality.
Wood flooring in a classic chevron pattern provides warm texture that grounds the space. Contrasting colors in the furnishings and materials gives a more dramatic feel throughout. The guest bathroom features double sinks and white marble tiles, while the master en-suite bathroom has black marble tiles. Photography by George Sfakianakis.

4 Apartment Hunting Red Flags That Should Have You Running the Other Way

Apartment hunting, especially online, is easy – maybe a little bit too easy. While the internet and print ads can be great sources for connecting people with housing that fits their needs, they can also be a breeding ground for scammers who are looking to take your hard-earned money. Read on to learn about some of the biggest apartment hunting red flags and how to keep yourself safe.

Make sure you can get in touch with the property manager. Image: Tatiana Nicol

The property manager is nowhere to be found

One of the biggest apartment hunting red flags is an uncommunicative landlord. Let’s say, for instance, you’ve finally found a property you like. You’ve been calling and calling to try and set up a viewing, but you’ve only been getting the property manager’s voicemail. Worse yet, no call back and it’s been days. Unfortunately, if this scenario sounds all

A Modern Apartment in St. Petersburg Inspired by a Luxury Hotel Suite

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/a-modern-apartment-in-st-petersburg-inspired-by-a-luxury-hotel-suite/st-peterburg-apartment-ms-a-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/08/St-Peterburg-Apartment-MS-A-1-810x488.jpg" alt="A Modern Apartment in St. Petersburg Inspired by a Luxury Hotel Suite" /></a>
                                A young couple in St. Petersburg, Russia requested <a href="http://ms-a.ru/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">MS-A</a> to design their apartment as if it was a high-end hotel suite with the main living area and bedroom separated only by glass. They devised a modern, minimalist design plan with Asian influences that resulted in the use of lots of wood, concrete, glass, natural stone, and brick, and a dark, moody color palette to complete the look.
Storage is hidden everywhere, like in this column attached to the dining table and behind wooden panels in the kitchen. A decorative wall was installed with different types of bricks to give it its jagged appearance. The minimalist kitchen appears to be the wall-mounted cabinet and sink, but more is hidden behind the wooden walls.
