With magazine clippings gracing one wall like beads on a string, and a power-cables sticker on another, this matchbox apartment shows its dweller’s eye for the abstract, as well as their eerie fascination with lines. They gracefully pop up in bunches – scattered as tapering table legs, as spindly branches in a surreal painting or cob-web patterns on throw pillows, and even as a blue shell-like chair – all around this cool mix-and-match pad.
The design is comprehensively youthful and coherent throughout in its approach to space, namely: the more there’s left of it, the better. This well-lit pad leans towards a ‘20s Art Deco swank, and somehow manages to make full use of its arguably limited space while neither cluttering it nor skimping on the decorative bric-a-brac. As far as the ornamental touches, they’re all chicer alternatives to what any house usually needs to feel cozy: the owner knows a bottom grille can serve as a shelve and look better in the process, magazine pages can adorn a wall just like an ordinary painting might, and a phone needn’t be common when it could just as well be a Hot-Line bright red look-alike!
