Interior Design & Home Decor
With the amazing view from this Yaletown studio, it was almost a distraction from the sparse and disorganized fashion this home was originally in. Assumably inhabited by a student, this studio needed a mature makeover.
410 square feet and a lot of entertaining to be had, Live Outside the Box Studio maximized this space in true small space living style!
A light and bright colour to create a soft and airy, cloud-like feel and some new space planning was the beginning of this transformation. The closet was repurposed as the bedroom, with a barn style door to increase privacy, and the living space received maximum seating - perfect for entertaining. Because with this view, everyone's invited! And of course a dining area was needed, increasing multi-functionality, this is also used as an office space.
The most important addition to this studio was the signature Live Outside the Box Studio Urban Closet! With the old closet now being used as the bedroom we designed a storage system that holds enough clothes to satisfy any woman, with room to space for those odds and ends. Don't worry guys, there's a large roll out drawer under the bed for you - HA.
Creating the illusion of a larger space is important when you're working with 410 square feet, or any small space. Our favourite trick is the use of mirrors to bounce light around the space and create reflections. The addition of accessories is important to create a cozy and personal feel, but less is more - glass ornaments, plants and a few momentums and you're done!
