A modern minimalist apartment can be the perfect solution for personalizing a rental space with limited square footage. Recently, a client approached Decorilla with the challenge of transforming their newly rented one-bedroom modern apartment into a clean and practical living space. The goal was to create a livable, personalized, and inviting environment within the constraints of the rental contract. With no option for remodeling, the designer had to get creative with practical hacks for minimalist and modern apartment design, establish a functional open-concept layout, integrate a small home office, and stick to a neutral color scheme with a touch of color.

The Challenge: Designing a Minimalist Apartment

The challenge was clear: create a minimalist apartment design that met the client's needs and reflected their personal style. The Decorilla team had to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to make the most of the limited space. The goal was to create a functional and inviting home that felt true to the client's lifestyle.

Finding Inspiration for Minimalist Apartment Decor

The client's inspirational gallery was filled with images that showcased functional and aesthetically pleasing minimalist home decor ideas. These images highlighted the beauty of simplicity, with a focus on light and airy colors that conveyed a sense of spaciousness. Drawing inspiration from these images, the designer set out to create a minimalist apartment that would be both stylish and functional.

Creating a Minimalist Apartment Moodboard

After an initial consultation and a detailed design questionnaire, the client was connected with two suitable designers from the Decorilla team. Both designers got to work on creating a minimalist interior design that would reflect the client's lifestyle and meet all their functional needs. Ultimately, the client chose the moodboard proposed by designer Theresa W.

Theresa's moodboard showcased a stylish and functional space that the client would love coming home to. The design incorporated the client's favorite hues of blue and grey, with a light and breezy palette that complemented the existing kitchen. The furniture and decor choices struck a balance between neutral chic and contrasting elements, adding visual interest and personality to the space.

The Results: A Stylish Minimalist Apartment

The final design of the minimalist apartment exceeded expectations. Careful selection of furniture and high-quality finishing materials added tactile and visual interest to the space, dispelling any notions of coldness or sterility typically associated with minimalist design. The strategic zoning of the different areas created a cohesive and well-balanced composition. The inclusion of a stylish mini bar and mixed medium wall art added character and tied the design together.

Minimalist Style Apartment Home Office

The minimalist apartment also features a dedicated home office area. An abstract art piece adds dynamism and warmth to the space, while a desk with storage drawers provides a functional workspace with a view. The minimalist design of the office area is completed with an elegant blue office chair and an industrial-style bookshelf.

Before the Transformation

The original apartment had great views and ample natural light, but it lacked a cohesive and stylish design. The limitations of the rental contract meant no changes to the walls or flooring, making it essential to curate the right furniture and decor to bring the space to life.
