Apartment Makeover Ideas – 3 Impressive Examples
Changes do us good by all means, giving us a superior tonus and a whole new perspective, positive of course, over our existence, breaking that vicious circle of routine which slow us down in all sense. You can start this spiritual revival process by some changes which will definitely open your appetite for new. A first step would be a home makeover, a stage carrying profound implications since this is the place where you withdraw at the end of a hard day’s work and here you recharge your batteries as well. So here are some apartment makeover ideas to inspire in these changes which hopefully will go beyond the home décor.
The first example comes from a Brazilian lady who moved to California where she and her husband bought an 88 square meter apartment. Missing her home country led her to carry out some colorful ideas full of vitality, just as the exotic Brazil is, in a décor in which the modern the vintage sides mix harmoniously. By help of some accessories with strong chromatic accents, the apartment came back to life and reverberates with harmony and energy. The green shades on the wall remind her of the lavish home country and open up the rooms, especially under the effect of the natural light.
The second example comes from New York where an old apartment on Fifth Avenue is transformed into a modern dwelling, bright and spacious. If, as concerns the first example, changes were more subtle, done in a slow visual transition, thanks to the owner’s passion for vintage, this time the metamorphosis is obvious, plainly noticeable in an apartment which comes as a wide open space in which physical limits are blurred, with small spots of color which break up this chromatic supremacy.
The third idea comes as a secrete change, too, but exuding plenty of personality. In a small two room apartment in Manhattan, the owner decided to center the much anticipated change on storage spaces, just as images below clearly show. She chose to concentrate these storage spaces on the side of the rooms, freeing up the rest of it so to use for other purposes. In the bedroom, the once empty wall behind the bed has now got a whole new task, so useful in the small apartment.
