This apartment, inhabited by young entrepreneur Nikole, used to be a “bachelor apartment.” In the beginning of the 20th century, bachelor apartments were created in old houses for young, unmarried professionals who were just starting out. The space is just 350 sq. ft., but the amazing light and bright walls keep the space airy.
Nikole used to work as a pastry chef, so her kitchen and amazing array of tools is one of the most important areas of her home. You can see her shop, full of nifty tools, here.
I don’t usually go for accent walls, but I like this charcoal gray ones. It keeps the space from being overly feminine.
