House LG by Deferarri + Modesti
Designed by Deferrari + Modesti architects, this 170 square metre apartment in Prato, Italy sits on multiple levels, unified by the use of clever design features and a fetching shade of blue.
Light wood floors, white walls and discrete lighting provide a neutral backdrop. The living room is dominated by a teak slat wall with sleek metal shelves in a contrasting Cerulean blue. The same shade can be seen in the custom-built cabinets as well as the central staircase. The latter is the focal point of the apartment, the decorative metal frame providing structural support, storage and also acting as a playful climbing frame. Decorated with pops of bright colours and plenty of greenery, this apartment feels bright, contemporary and full of life.
Sleek, contemporary designs with pops of colour work wonderfully in modern apartments. Try the Block sofa from Missana, the Fox armchair from Pedrali and the Net table from Moroso.
Go for simple, discrete lighting such as the Hubert frame suspension light from Menu, the Bolt wall light from Tonone and the Dome lamp from Mater.
Liven up your space with shapely and colourful accessories such as the Sticks flower vase from Ghidini 1961, the Pura magazine holder from Formae and the Darkly mirror from Menu.
