Creative Ideas – Small Space, Big on Storage

A relaxing muted palette sets this cosy five-room apartment apart from most spaces which usually utilise brighter colours to look more spacious. Space is aplenty here, thanks to clever designs and shelving choices. Delightfully uncluttered, the living room features an earthy colour palette that’s simple, yet stylish. While the design follows a minimalist theme, it also features an array of textures to add more dimensions to the space. This includes a feature wall, showroom-style spotlights, and tastefully-chosen blinds that allow just the right amount of daylight to enter the room. Here, the floor is kept clear, highlighting the clean lines and thoughtful details in the space.
