An appearance of a home can tell a lot about its owner! One look at the apartment is enough to determine who lives in it as precisely as possible: a family with a few kids, an elderly couple or an unmarried woman. Today, however, we do not have to guess who is the owner of the home located in one of the apartment buildings of a bustling city, as it is known in advance. We will visit an apartment of a successful modern man, who has not started a family and had children yet.
What distinguishes a bachelor house from a usual city apartment?
- Relative compactness, because the house is designed for permanent residence of one person.
- Maximum functionality at arrangement of the vital areas and placement of household trifles.
- Certain austerity, lack of materials and things most often used by couples and lonely homemakers in the interior.
So here we have a typical bachelor’s apartment. The refuge of a modern bachelor consists of several rooms. Several important functional areas are located in the most spacious of them:
place for daily recreation;
It should be noted that the interior of the whole apartment designed in the same style. There is nothing flashy, showy and extra fashionable. It is rather a duo of such design trends as Art Nouveau and retro style. The color scheme chosen for the decoration of the apartment is consistent with the general mood of a bachelor’s home. The interior is dominated by bright colors: white, brown, beige and gray.
Bachelor living room
Rest zone in the central room occupies the largest area of the apartment.
A large couch covered practical gray cloth, can be increased in size if necessary. Gray white patchwork rug looks excellent next to the sofa upholstery and textiles of the same color. A white armchair in combination with a floor lamp and cushions complement the overall color scheme. A small coffee table with round table top on three curved legs serves a purely decorative function: a vessel for fresh flowers of an original form is placed on the surface.
Opposite the rest area, there is a small old dresser of gray and purple color used to store all sorts of things.
Objects used by the owner of the property in everyday life are perfectly placed on shelves, in the dresser drawers, and on its surface.
In this apartment, there is no special place for reading books and periodical literature.
Pieces of furniture such as a brown-beige armchair, large, soft cream-colored ottoman, a pile of old magazines on the floor and a narrow metal cabinet performing the function of a safe and a coffee table at the same time, are placed in another side of the room.
Armchair standing in this part of the room has a less austere form: it is made of wood and soft supple skin. To light the zone, you can use a special desk lamp, standing on a metal surface of the cabinet.
Bachelor dining room
solid rectangular wooden table;
four chairs with metal frames, one of which is slightly different from the others;
massive stock bookcase;
two pendant lamp of dimmed orange color over the dining table;
stylish pictures and photos in frames.
An elongated cabinet, standing on the floor deserves special attention. Its surface is used to store numerous astonishing items. Here you can see an old record player with headphones, bottles of liquor and a metal desk lamp of an original round shape.
Area intended for work is located in the corner part of the room. The study takes up very little space in the room, however, it plays a very important role in the life of the owner of the apartment.
In addition, there is access to the loggia in the living room – a rather large, well-lit room. It shelters a small sofa with white upholstery and old furniture in retro style: a steady stool, stand and a small folding table. The floor in the room is covered with warm floors resembling soft grass cover. The room also has a few pots with fresh flowers.
The bedroom area is located in a separate room. The small space houses: wide bed with pillows of various shapes;
compact bedside table to accommodate the essentials.
Rather a long windowsill serving as a shelf on which you can put several interesting stylish souvenirs.
Interior of the bedroom is maintained in milky coffee shades. Curtains have the most saturated color. Noble brown curtains perfectly go with pastel tones of the walls, furniture and textiles. Chandelier, having the form of a large black ball made of yarn, looks somewhat unusual in the general background.
Kitchen space takes up little space in this apartment as that in the bedroom. Here, everything is functional: there is an area for cooking and heating uncomplicated food and several places to store the most necessary kitchen utensils.
Most likely, the apartment owner doesn’t give particular importance to this room.
The typical bachelor apartment look is almost complete. However, all the details not taken into account by the designers in the creation of the interior will be put in places by the life itself.
