Apartment Living with Atittude
We had to show you this. This is an example of how to execute apartment décor so that the result is soulful, homely, individualistic and stylish without using practicality as the sacrificial lamb. This two-bed penthouse apartment is anything but boring. It’s a carefully styled mix of colours, materials and shapes which looks like it evolved over many years and which feels like home. It is said that your home becomes your story. This apartment certainly speaks of that sentiment.
The living area uses definite block colours in muted autumnal tones against a backdrop of Aisling straight board engineered floor. A clever combination of brass, panelling, marble and fabric are married together harmoniously and the result is that you want to kick of your shoes, relax and get to know the owner. Wouldn’t you agree?
A charming kitchenette is cleverly differentiated from the main living space by use of contrasting flooring and semi-concealed using wall panelling. Note the colours – the kitchen doesn’t drawing attention to itself. It’s not competing. It simply belongs.
A small bathroom with a big design. The use of a classic décor tile with a contemporary costa grey porcelain adds a touch of elegance and timelessness to an otherwise neutral design. Wall hung bathroom ware maximises the space. This is a small bathroom that feels large due to clever tile combinations and the use of alcoves.
A city roof garden is one of life’s luxuries and this one is close to perfect. Look down on city life from an oasis of palm, wood and grass. Enjoy al-fresco dining under a pergola paved with porcelain. And remember – artificial grass is your best friend when designing an apartment garden. It softens the porcelain, adds a sense of the real outdoors and best of all, is maintenance-free.
