With this gallery, we aim to put a spotlight on a truly unique Chelsea, NYC, apartment by LABLstudio with photography by Matthew Williams.
The design for this one-bedroom located in Chelsea took direct aim at an idea of bold, bohemian touches meeting the flair of a boutique hotel.
Beginning with scant architectural detail to build upon, the designers’ goal was to turn a simple white box into a space that reflected the art-director client’s personality. They also made sure to incorporate durable elements that could withstand the energy of the client’s pet pitbull.
A major point of interest was a space to store the client’s vast wine collection, as well as a space to entertain guests. The foyer was turned into a wine bar, granting a cozy yet playful vibe to the area. Chalkboard paint, rustic wood and metal elements, and a collection of vintage mirrors amplify the playful spirit.
The living room evokes a sophisticated boutique hotel feel, which was accomplished by layering patterns, texture, and color, and incorporating an oversized light fixture as a fun yet dramatic point of interest.
Here we see the home office area, sitting perpendicular to the main living room area, maximizing space.
The small kitchen is enlivened with both industrial and vintage touches, with a personalized chalkboard wall floating above. Rustic wood countertop here serves as dining space for two.
Magnetic knife rack and “number” hangers cling to the chalkboard wall, here adorned with calendar notes.
Large artsy details appear throughout the home, including these block letters above the range, leaning against a white tile wall.
The bedroom was designed as a cool oasis, with soft tones and a light, airy feel. “Racy Lacy” removable wallpaper floats above the textural bed, while the gold pendant light highlights the center of the room.
Adorning the detailed wall is a trio of dried flowers, used as an inexpensive art piece over the simple thin metal frame bed.
Bedside table is a cross section tree slice over thin metal legs. Color pops in this space, courtesy of a bright yellow arched lamp.
The dresser holds unique details, including this blown glass frame lamp with green-trimmed shade.
Moving back, we see the patterned hardwood flooring below the bedroom. Dresser stands beside the moderately sized window, with cropped drapes allowing abundant light in.
Similar to the kitchen utensils, jewelry is displayed instead of stored, hanging on this silver painted skull.
The little details in this home add up to a lot of personality. A simple wall basket here holds a candle and small stone carved owl.
A trio of striped coat hangers stand beside the front door and vintage intercom.
A light salmon hue coats the walls near the front door, lending a warm and bright tone as one enters the home.
