I had to share another space created by The New Design Project because I adore neutral spaces that have some spunk and are not the least bit dull. This New York rental apartment is anything but dull. It has tons of personality through quirky art and furnishings despite having a very limited colour palette. This is fantastic! (More details here, photos by Alan Gastelum)
This is one of the most inspiring posts I have shared in a while, IMHO. A huge thanks to Silje for tipping us of to this in an email recently: This is the Tumblr of a friend of a friend. They're a newly married couple in their 20s, and got an apt. in the old part of Oslo, Norway, this summer. They're both incredibly talented and hard-working, and they have just renovated their tiny apartment ALL by themselves. Their style is typically Norwegian, using "honest" materials (as well cal it), thrifted stuff, secondhand furniture and a mixing it to a delightfully minimalist style. Well worth a wee looksy, especially the before and after pictures of the livingroom/kitchen! The blog is named "down in Løkka", Løkka being a nickname for Grünerløkka, a hipster/old part of Oslo. I am completely in awe of all of the work they have done on their tiny pad. And it is beautiful, and perfectly minimal. I am so impressed.
I can't get enough of The New Design Project's work. I spotted this beauty (located in Le Marais, Paris) on their site and had to share it as well. The perfect little Parisian hangout. The challenge in this 30m2 (320ft2) studio was to retain the quirkiness of the space whilst making it more practical. We decided to create an alcove bedroom with a half height wall to improve the general flow whilst keeping the apartment bright and airy. A simple and monochromatic palette was used in the "utilitarian areas" (kitchen, bathroom) to let the ambient charm shine through. Most of the items are flea market finds (Paris, London, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue) but we mixed vintage with industrial pieces, and high street with designer, to create an overall more eclectic look.
