As we took a look at some of the most inspiring apartments around, we were blown away by the inventiveness and ingenuity of the interior designers that came up with such striking and fabulous schemes. Seriously, you won't believe some of the finishes and decorative touches that have been included in these homes, from personal music studios, through to bedrooms with over sized comic book graphics on the walls! We think we've got your attention now, so without further ado, let's dive in and see the apartments that might very well dictate your next decorating project!
Just look at this phenomenal dining area! A brick wall and neon sign add in serious New York loft vibes and colorful dining chairs make for a funky aesthetic, as do those charming pendulum lights! This home is so unique and fun!
This living room is everything! With a drop-down screen in place of a television, comfortable sofas and a clearly high-tech surround system, we get the feeling that this beautiful apartment sees a lot of social activity! The lighting is so on point too!
All the lighting, colorful touches and expansive worktops make this kitchen nothing short of incredible. It just looks like such a fun place for cooking in! That integrated cooking book shelf is inspired in itself!
We couldn't possibly not show you this neon den of awesome! As if this apartment has its very own music studio! No wonder the rest of the space is so vibrant, funky and cool!
The wide open feel of this apartment is so refreshing, not to mention gorgeous and with pale wood flooring and white walls in place, there is a distinctly Scandinavian vibe!
Part of the open space, this kitchen has followed the color scheme to the letter by having white cabinets and wooden counters, but it's that backsplash that we have fallen in love with! What a way to inject some fun and personal taste, not to mention a lovely natural motif!
Would you have expected anything other than a vibrant, fresh and hygienic-feeling bathroom from this apartment? We didn't think so! The water-effect tiles are a revelation and really add a dose of appropriate, not to mention amazing color to a functional space.
We are suckers for perfectly curated minimal homes and this one is really exciting us. With simple white walls, a tasteful dining set, which includes fantastic retro chairs, and an all-wood, open kitchen, we feel right at home here. It's the simplicity that makes it so spectacular!
We can all take a cue from this living room, with its bare brick walls that look so warm and pretty and a screen that is there when you want to watch television, but invisible when you don't. Storage that matches the kitchen makes for a cohesive addition and the floating white shelf here breaks up all the natural tones so wonderfully.
What kid wouldn't want to grow up in a room that has an amazing Spider-man decal on the wall? Wow! it's always so refreshing to find a home that doesn't take itself or its design scheme too seriously and can inject a little fun into the kids' rooms! That hanging chair must be super comfortable for nursing too.
Don't you find the way these spaces have been divided up, by using different flooring finishes, absolutely ingenious? This interior designer had such a great handle on making open-plan living more simple! The low-level furniture really heightens the size of this space and all the lighting makes it look like a high fashion catwalk! Wow!
What else would you expect in such a fashionable penthouse apartment, than a super modern monochrome kitchen filled with gloss surfaces and integrated appliances? The painted black brick wall makes a real statement here, as does the black backsplash, but it's the table that looks so outrageous! And those modern chandeliers!
There's no way that you wouldn't get an incredible night's sleep here! Luxury bed linen, a soft headboard that reaches up to the ceiling, smooth flooring and plenty of mirror panels all contribute to the spacious and sleek feeling here and being on the top floor, there's even a view and a balcony! Talk about luxurious!
A striped feature wall has made so much more of this sweet and modern apartment! With some piquant color on the walls, the rest of the decoration and furniture can afford to be a little more pared back and plain, which really suits the almost industrial motifs here, such as the staircase.
We see some really Scandinavian vibes here, what with more patterns being included, but in a muted way. A monochrome striped rug looks incredible and adds so much character to the grey bed and sofa, but the overall feeling here is one of cozy, quiet comfort. Bold, yet sleepy. What a combination!
So here's where all the really bright color is hiding! A really fun and engaging space for kids, this bedroom shows that the apartment was considered as a whole when the decorating began, rather than being taken one room at a time. We really like that stripes seem to play a part in every area!
