There are many lessons one could learn from the design of this small Finnish apartment. How to -
- design on a budget,
- be minimalistic,
- incorporate pops of color,
- create a wall of inexpensive artwork,
- create a kid-friendly space,
- use mismatched furniture in decor,
- make a small space look larger,
- set up visible, organized storage.
Take a look..
Open plan dining, living, kitchen. Love the mismatched chairs.
Origami, a bird and a bunch of straws.
Basic black-and-white theme allows the use of a pop of color (small doses) here and there...blue-and-white patterned rug and blue-tipped chair legs.
For an organized look, books and DVDs stacked by color and size.
Magazine pages and postcards taped to the wall serve as inexpensive, easily-changeable artwork.
Design with kids in mind.
Gleaming white floors help light reflect creating an illusion of a larger space.
Black contact paper on cabinet front.
Neat light fixture

Overall a welcoming, family friendly, cheerful, unique space with a ton of charm. My favorite element would be the taped artwork and the simple but interestingly effective ceiling light fixture. Do you like the style of this apartment?
