Keep it Simple Schuybroek
Least our readers think the only way to make a small space amazing is through hiding beds, moving walls and high tech gimmicks, let us point your attention toward Nicolas Schuybroek. The Belgian architect proves that style and interior design restraint go a long way in making a small space both gorgeous and livable.
His DT Appartment (translation: DT Apartment) is a small space that reeks of style and comfort. Rather than trying to do too much, it has a handful of meticulously chosen furnishings that fit just right into the space. For the two room apartment, there is little more than a comfy looking L-sofa, some side tables, a round dining table, some chairs, a desk and a bed. The space uses accents such as wide plank wood flooring and lots of marble to give it an opulent feel. (We’ll leave out our thoughts about the sink that floats separately from the rest of the kitchen).
Surely, none of this is cheap–especially the floor to ceiling marble shower stall and what is probably custom furniture. That said, one of the great things about a small space (we don’t have exact square footage, but would guess around 550 sq ft), is that the amount of materials is never that great, making high end finishes easier to justify.
