Today in House Tours Tuesdays: we continue bringing you our favourite entries to the Small Cool 2012 contest from Apartment Therapy.
We love colour, and this small apartment in Vienna, Austria has colour in all the right places. It’s a small apartment of just 750 sq. metres but very well organised. A very big and spacious living and bedroom are connected via French doors and it makes both rooms feel airy and spacious. The whole apartment feels spacious and much bigger than it actually is.
In the bedroom the owner, a interior designer found a very creative way of creating a walk-in closet: he put the bed in the middle and backed the headboard with turquoise painted doors that create the illusion of a wall. Behind that “wall” it’s the closet which is big enough for his storage needs.
There are more creative solutions in this small apartment and all of them are very cheap. Go to the article to read more and see all the photos.
You don’t always need to use colour to decorate. Sometimes the raw appeal of exposed bricks is more than plenty to create a space with lots of character and personality. And that’s why this apartment is one of our favourites.
The apartment (350 sq.feet, 32.52 sq metres) has been decorated keeping the brick exposed and without painting or plastering over them. It’s a very modern trend that mixes modern and rustic styles. And looks great. The textures of the brick combined with more classic furniture and wood flooring looks incredible. But it doesn’t stop there. A very small bathroom has been decorated with fixtures in the right size and the walls tiled at an angle creating a very dynamic space.
The overall apartment is fantastic and worth seeing all the photos and reading more about.
This is a very small apartment of just 600 sq. feet (55.74 sq.metres) but is well organised and colour plays a role in organising areas in this space.
It’s a more spacious apartment than the one above but it does work well and looks bigger than it actually is. A big bedroom has room for a big office desk leaving an open plan floor in the living/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is separated from the dining/living area using a breakfast bar that increases working surfaces and storage space in the kitchen. The living room has been separated from the dining kitchen areas thanks to the use of colour. In this apartment colour is used to separate areas helping distribute the open plan floor style of the apartment and creating the illusion of space.
It’s a great apartment with great colour and excellent planning. Go to the article to read more and see all the photos.
And we finish today’s house tours with a small house, very much like most houses in Ireland. An 830 sq. feet (77.11 sq. metres) two floors and manages to have three bedrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen as well as a toilet downstairs and two full bathrooms upstairs (one ensuite). All that thanks to a clean decor with well chosen colour in all the right places. Plenty of seating space and very functional house with all the style. Because living in a family house with children doesn’t mean you can’t have it all.
It’s beautiful, full of light and full of ideas you can apply in your own house. Jump to the article to read more and see all the photos.
