I couldn't believe my eyes when I found the interior of Zach Motl, a junior designer at Robert Couturier & Associates, in the NY Times last week. At a tiny 178 square feet, Zach has made use of every inch of space in his eclectic studio apartment in Brooklyn.
Somehow even though Zach's belongings are stored on display, it doesn't make the space feel that small.
I don't know about you guys, but how he has made under-the-bed storage look stylish I don't know...but he has!
The utilitarian-chic of Zach's kitchen has just the right amount of industrial flavours, saved from being too cold by the deep and warming green of the wall. This striking colour also helps to zone the area, which is essential for one-room living.
Could this cut-out kitchen be any more adorable?! Loving the splash of colour in the form of the blue wellies and bright red bowl.
The use of neutral colours through-out the studio helps to tie the eclectic look together, and makes the introduction of colour (like with the green kitchen wall) that much more effective.
The midnight blue ceiling adds drama, whilst working with the white accessories to calm the space.
The splashes of both colour and graphic prints (as seen above) add interest and prove that despite having a small space, you don't have to cut back on stylish additions or pattern. I'd recommend reading the full NY Times article - it's really inspired me to get creative in my little flat!
