Another masterpiece from The November Design, this apartment is designed to encourage more work and less play or relaxation. The imposing Scandinavian style work desk, placed right in the center of the living room, tells it all. Behind the desk is an elegant ergonomic chair to promote productivity.
That’s not all. Shall we get in and explore what more this office-like home has to offer?
The Sitting Room
You can easily mistake this apartment’s sitting room for a waiting lounge in an office. You shouldn’t expect much comfort from the neat wooden arm couch. This is more of a working area than a lounging space. That explains why the large desk adjacent to the couch enjoys much more floor space.
The room also features chic modern office style storage furniture. If you want to do some reading in the seating room, a white wall sconce will provide the much-needed light. At the other end, another lamp lights up the book cabinets.
The color-free décor makes the relatively furniture-packed apartment appear minimal. You can place the book you’re currently reading on the end table that rests below the swing arm wall lamp. It is such a convenient spot.
Natural light can be quite heavenly. The room boasts plenty of it, thanks to the glazed dividing walls. Over the central home office, a white powder coated strip light hangs low.
The bold black Herman Miller Mirra 2 ergonomic chair stands out in its stark surroundings. It matches the black window frames. With its central location, the desk poses risks of painful bumps. Fortunately, its rounded edges serve to minimize such incidences.
You don’t want to ruin the beauty of this space with paper clutter. That’s where the modular storage unit behind the desk comes in handy. The shelves of the unit are adorned with small ornaments that make it look homey.
Your eyes can’t miss the sizable piece of artwork that sits casually on the floor. The artwork’s pale tones complement the décor.
Enough of the living area. Let’s have a brief look at the kitchen and dining area.
Kitchen and Dining Area
In the kitchen area, a dining table is surrounded by four different dining chair designs. This arrangement creates a calm eclectic look. A clear decorative vase holding some simple greenery serves as the dining table centerpiece.
Towering above the family-friendly dining space is a rustic style heavy dining pendant light. The smooth white kitchen cabinets blend in well with the white double-door fridge freezer. The backsplash is a product of white gloss metro tile.
Clear wine glasses, mismatched dishes, shiny chrome, and stainless steel make up the kitchen accents. Shall we step out and explore the hallway?
Moving away from the kitchen, the hallway is tiled. Tiled flooring is more durable and easier to clean compared to wooden flooring. But why is the hallway storage wall-mounted?
Besides ensuring that you have an easier time when cleaning the floor, it also provides a convenient space to place your shoes. Several elements serve to save space and make the area look more spacious. The sliding interior door and wall-hung cupboards have especially done a perfect job.
Concealed LED lighting makes the recessed shelf look inviting. Likewise, the chunky doorknobs make the plain white units look somewhat exciting.
Before we see what’s in the bedroom, it’s worth noting that some items are useful but are not pleasing to the eye. These are kept away in various easily accessible drawers and cupboards.
The bedroom features a contemporary built-in dressing table, several modern wall sconces mounted over the headboard, and built-in wardrobe with sliding beech wood doors.
Running along the width of the headboard wall is a cutaway shelf. Lined with beech wood, the shelf provides convenient storage for your mobile devices and Nighttime reading books. You can also charge your devices right there.
A choice of small indoor plants adds life to the bedroom. The bedcovers feature a subtle pattern of white and beige floral print.
Let’s now step into the bathroom. You can use the sliding beech wood door. Don’t forget that one of the sliding doors opens up to the wardrobe.
Beige is the dominant color here. You can’t fail to notice the beech wood vanity. The vanity complements the beige stone tiles behind the wash basin. The beige tiles extend to the shower and around the bath.
The bathroom floor bears a contrasting tone, thanks to its dark grey tiles. The light is white like in the rest of the home. However, the fixtures and fitting are understated and chrome.
