This is the Manhattan apartment of Will Nathan (co-founder of Homepolish, a company that connects interior designers with clients who don't necessarily have massive budgets). Homepolish's other co-founder, Noa Santos, helped him create this homey environment with touches of modern, rustic and masculine elements that work so well against the apartments fabulous features like the brick wall and beamed skylight. I especially love the shelf/rod combo above the bed - awesome in a small space because it eliminates the need for bedside tables (and the rods are just hooked through the shelf brackets).
Nook Architects have gone and done it again. They have renovated what was essentially a hole, and transformed it into a seriously cool apartment. The best part is they left all the beautiful original floor tiles intact, as well as some bits of old wallpaper. The effect is an eclectic juxtaposition between old and new.
This 40m² apartment in Turin, Italy was once an industrial space now converted into a hip, modern dwelling by the folks at UdA. I'm always a fan of their projects as they are so creative, aren't afraid to add bits of colour and pattern, and they blend different materilas in very unusual ways. I also love their use of varying angles. Turns a boring rectangle into something far more interesting. (Previous posts of their work here, here and here).
