About this Place
This apartment belongs to a dentist who may have missed his calling as an interior designer. He’s done a wonderful job creating a cohesive, sophisticated home.
Floor to ceiling windows flood the apartment with natural light. We’re always envious of hardwood floors because they look good and are easy to maintain.
The dining area is the perfect blend of mid-century modern and contemporary styles. He’s paired a live edge table with Eames-style chairs. The plywood side chairs work with lots of table styles and are well-priced at less than $100 each.
The large blank wall behind the dining table is just begging for a gallery wall. He’s already got a few pieces stashed above the dining console and could make quite the statement on this wall with minimal effort.
A tan leather sofa keeps things in the living area light and has a streamlined look. A nice assortment of throw pillows adds some pattern to the space.
Empty corners like this don’t need to be intimidating when it comes to decorating. He added a floor lamp for extra lighting and some vertical interest. The vase with branches brings a nice textural touch to the corner, too.
A chair pulled from the dining area along with a stool that doubles as a side table works just as well as a pricier upholstered chair to provide extra seating in the dining area.
We like the cheeky eyeglasses pillow he’s added to soften up the chair. It adds a nice punch of color to the neutral space.
The desk is the perfect blend of style and function. The mix of the gray painted finish and wooden top keep things interesting while the drawers offer tons of storage to keep the work area clutter-free.
This IKEA floor lamp also comes in a desktop version and is an affordable choice that blends in well with nearly every style. Don’t forget the houseplants, either. They add color, pattern, and texture but don’t cost a fortune.
