Who doesn’t love to get inspired by apartments’ interior design? Although tricky, designing your space is challenging most in the most delightful way. Here are 10 examples where you will definitely find yourself fantasizing about revamping your apartment.
1. Psyche by One Space Design
In Chengdu, China, an apartment designed by a local architecture firm is calling attention. One Design Studio embraced this apartment’s very high ceiling and strategically placed the contemporary and midcentury-inspired furniture to emphasize the space and the minimalistic approach. One detail used by the firm was to avoid unnecessary divisions that would take off from the ample space. Instead, they used a bookshelf to just give the right amount of separation without taking off the brightness and openness of the space.
2. Tribeca loft by Andrea Leung
Architect Andrea Leung, used reflection as her main tool when renovating a 1600 sq ft historic apartment in New York. She came to an elegantly simple solution that evokes interaction between all the elements that compose an interior design. The interaction of materials, textures, and shapes evokes a poetic tension that touches people in a way they can’t explain, making them appreciate and enjoy the design. Playing with reflections and surprises brought architectural curiosities up, which, combined with the right pieces, created a space of simplistic modernism.
3. Tableau penthouse by KSR Architects & Interior Designers
Located in Central London, this originally the show home of 23 unit, became now one apartment that belongs to a private owner. The owner worked closely with the London-based KSR Architects & Interior Designers to create the perfect mix of luxurious and cozy, blending the modern with the classical, the old with the new. The space has a few statement pieces that stand out and call attention and also represent the strong character of the resident. His art collection is purposefully placed throughout the apartment to perfectly match the interior design.
4. The Cortland by Robert AM Stern Architects and Olson Kundig
This luxurious New York residence designed by Olson Kunding, placed in the building created by Robert AM Stern Architects, gave us a taste of what is to be living in such apartments. The designers found the right balance of refined and abundant aesthetic. The design is open with statement pieces of lighting elements that sophisticate the neutral palette used in the interior design. The high-quality design doesn’t just include the interior decoration but also the exterior, the materials used for assembling elevate this scaleless building even more.
5. Apartment XVIII by Studio Razavi Architecture
This XVIIIth century mansion is located in one of the oldest areas of Paris, close to churches, squares, private homes, and overall a unique mix of the surroundings. When Studio RAvazi took charge of the design of this mansion, it had previously been through many changes that tried to go further from the home’s original design. This made Studio Ravazi start literally from scratch with the design. The designers said, “Natural light was their material of choice.” It comes in three different directions, and it could be celebrated from inside the building to emphasize the beauty of its original beams, columns, and walls. Furnished with vintage and modern pieces, this interior design became something completely different from what it was. They didn’t play as much with material as they did with form and shape, which gave this unique look to the whole mansion.
6. Neuilly Project by Sandra Benhamou
It is always important to know who the residents of an apartment will be to determine the approach to the interior design that the designer took. In this specific example, the owner made this Parisian apartment design by Sandra Benhamou. The owners are a couple of art collectors who wanted their 120 sqm apartment in a 1970s building to showcase that. Imagining a flowing space, with almost no divisions, where art predominated everything. The natural customized materials used for the kitchen, bookshelves, and wardrobes, together with the colors selected, which mostly stand in the warm earth tones, create the perfect space for the artistic couple to live in, and the furniture featured was also hand-picked by the homeowners and designer together.
7. The Penthouse of the OPUS ONE by T.K. CHU Design
On the 34th floor of the OPUS ONE, a big complex building in Hangzhou, China, is a distinctive penthouse. The luxurious design was in the good hands of T.K. Chu Design, a Shanghai firm led by T. K. Chu. They took charge of this high-rise apartment interior to bring it to the next level. The inspiration, in this case, was the altitude; being on such a high floor, the panoramic view is almost an areal view of the whole city, but especially of both the Qiantang River and West lake. The floor-to-ceiling windows were a must, but they also aimed to dominate white around the apartment, with playful furniture and art pieces popping the right amount of color and extravagance needed for the space.
8. DN apartment by Bruno Carvalho Arquitectos
The 1970s residential building block in Sao Paulo, Brazil, showcases a different style of apartment interior redecoration by the leading architect and designer Bruno Carvalho and the local architecture and design firm BC Arquitectos. As often mentioned, going for less is often more modern; the designer’s choice to allow the house’s concrete elements to be exposed was a bold move that paid off. The concrete and the natural walnut hues blend together seamlessly with the furniture pieces carefully selected from Brazilian modernist masters.
9. Mexico City Penthouse by Simon Hamui
A bit different from the usual minimalist, the neutral palette used in most modern minimalist designs, this luxurious penthouse located in the center of Mexico City exhibits darker palettes and richer textures combined. Designed by Mexican design firm Simon Hamui, this modern interior went for a more unique selection of bespoke pieces of furniture, like the dining table, the doors, fireplace, and bookcase.
10. Apartment in Udine by Cristina Celestino
And last but not least, a great representation in much contrast with the previous example, an apartment design that focuses on the use of plenty of colors and materials to create a playful environment, yet functional for the customer and future resident of the apartment. Located in Udine, Italy, this apartment’s newest design was in the hands of Cristina Celestino, that revamped the 120 sqm, responding to the existing textures and architectural concept. She tried to enhance the existing geometrical shapes and get inspired by them. This resulted in an amazingly modern, young, and vibrant apartment design.
