Q - Hi Apartment Therapy! I recently purchased a brand new studio apartment - it's 578 square feet with 10 foot ceilings and it gets great light but architecturally, it's basically just a big box. I'm wondering if any brilliant Apartment Therapy readers have ideas of how I can take advantage of lighting, paint selection and furniture layout to create visual interest. Thanks! Jacqui
A - Looks like a fantastic opportunity for drama with all those windows in the living area! Is the wall between the kitchen and dining a full wall or a bar height? We'd direct focus in the living room toward the windows and keep the dining room more connected to the kitchen to help focus attention in appropriate areas. Area rugs and lighting will help you the most when it comes to defining different zones in this large, open space. Keep us posted on your progress!
