When this newly married couple moved into their new apartment, they were looking for a home that reflected their enthusiastic, adventurous and energetic personalities. What resulted was a vibrant, Scandinavian-styled modern apartment filled with elements that maximize space and create an inspiring environment. Let’s take a tour!

Take one step into the apartment and, a bright and open living space welcomes you, with windows that let in a lot of light. White walls make the entire space feel larger while a cool blue living room give it a peaceful vibe. It’s hard to believe that this 40-year-old apartment used to have many doors and corridors that previously made the space dark and cramped.

 

Because the apartment was old, the crumbling walls had to be broken down and the entire plumbing and electrical system had to be replaced. A great time to re-think your living quarters! The designers transformed the space into a much larger area that allowed the couple greater flexibility to move around.

The world map in the dining room is stunning, and easily the couple’s favorite part of the house. Because they enjoy traveling, the map reminds them of places they’ve visited and the memories they’ve made. They can also personalize the area by displaying photos of their journey.

Having different types of dining chairs also keep the area dynamic. The mix of metallic and wooden textures complements the industrial-style lighting.

The neon lights read Grateful, serving as a reminder for the couple for their gratitude while giving the living room vivacity, set against the clean white brick wall.

The couple can also customize the entire TV unit structure depending on their needs. Apart from the fixed cabinets at the bottom and the white vertical structure, everything else can be personalized to fit their taste and changing needs.

 

They can rearrange the shelves or add in rods for decorative lighting. The wooden panel is a nice touch, allowing them to plug in wooden pieces for additional storage.

The colorful tiled wall decor gives the couple a warm welcome home every single day. There’s even a subtle hook to make sure they never lose their keys. The entry way also provides visitors a space to hang their coats, incorporated in the tall open shelves.

The unusual wooden pattern in the kitchen cabinets bring in plenty of energy to the space, making it perfect for the couple always on the go.

Despite the compact area of the kitchen, everything they need from the stove to the refrigerator fit perfectly.

The home office is an essential part of the house, as well. The wife works mainly from home so it was important to design the room in a functional way yet still keep it balanced with a pleasant atmosphere. She particularly loved the removable racks that she can adjust anytime on her own.

The designers chose a vibrant black and yellow color scheme to keep the space inspiring and productive. The geometric lighting also matches the iconic Bertoia chairs perfectly.

The bedroom offers a serene space for the couple to unwind. Its softer tones are a lovely contrast to the energized shapes and sharper angles in the rest of the house. I love the customized shelving system that lets them hang planters, paired with simple lights.

It’s easy to why the owners loved the project from the beginning all the way to completion. The once small, dark apartment has been transformed into the home of their dreams with the character and vibrancy of their personalities.
