The Modern Style Apartment Design

One of our initial proposals features the sleekest modern apartment design by our designer Mladen C. This design maximizes the skyscraper view by incorporating metallic elements that bounce the city lights. By using neutral gray paint with a light-bouncing eggshell finish, this small apartment feels more spacious. In the 3D design images, we replaced the dark furniture with lighter alternatives to elongate the space.

The Preliminary Proposals

The Decorilla design process starts with two custom proposals from our industry-leading interior designers. In this case, our client was presented with two equally sleek and modern apartment design proposals. While both concepts were stunning, the design by Mladen C. became the favorite.

In the winning concept, furnishings were kept minimal to create a spacious and airy feel. Brass accent tables and details, along with contemporary relief artwork, added warmth to the modern design. The final design was tweaked to match the client's vision while maintaining the lovely richness of brass and lightness of white tones from the initial moodboard.

The Result

A contemporary pendant light hangs above the ultra-chic dining table and brushed gold dining chairs. Floor-to-ceiling silk drapes frame the breathtaking views, adding warmth and luxury. The balance of white, gray, and gold tones, along with the warm wooden floor, creates a cozy and sleek apartment design.

Modern Apartment Bedroom Design

In the bedroom, savvy decorating ideas make a small space feel larger than it is. A gold-trimmed mirror creates the illusion of more space while reflecting light. An impressive deep-buttoned headboard adds grandeur, lifting the ceiling and drawing the eyes towards shimmering artwork. Plush rugs and a Mongolian lambswool stool soften the room, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Entryway in a Modern Style Apartment

Hallways are often dark, but not in this modern apartment. Light is essential in an entryway, and a beautiful mirrored copper pendant illuminates every corner of this tiny space. A strategically placed mirror reflects more light, brightening the landing. Pot plants and roses feature throughout the home, adding freshness to the modern apartment decor.
