This 40 m² apartment in Moscow is a flawless example of how to maximize space when there isn’t much to work with. Cartelle Design used a grey base and added bits of colour with a bold AF yellow bed and platform, a red mirror in the hallway and pretty pink tile in the bathroom. High ceilings and large windows across the apartment help to make it feel larger and loft-like. Love this.
“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
I’m real estate scrolling in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda and I think I’ve found the perfect pied-à-terre but it’s more than just somewhere to drop your bags and head out into cosmopolitan city. Small in size but definitely big in style. No wonder because this bijou gem is the work of interior stylist Lynda Gardener. It’s going to auction next month. Seriously tempted. Link here while it lasts.
It just goes to show the almost magical power of painting a small space all white. Walls and floors and ceiling, furniture white, warm it up with timber accents and if you’re lucky increase your small apartment with expansive views. I’m stalking an apartment for sale in Potts Point, inner Sydney. Wouldn’t this be a fabulous base to explore the city? Link here while it lasts.
Whether your space is small, like in this Woolloomooloo apartment, or large, art can be the star of the show and have a huge impact on the decor. In this case it brings alot of drama and interest to an otherwise boring structure lacking architectural details. Another fabulous project by Sydney-based interior designer Jason Mowen.
