Ever since we spotted this modern white apartment on David Netto's site we've been fantasizing about moving in. It's got our mind on that dangerous track that starts with "if we only had the money..." but when we snap ourselves back to reality, we can find a lot of ideas to be used in our own home. Click below to see them...



Artwork is the highlight of this apartment. We love the groupings of black-and-white photographs with intermittent colorful pieces (all set off with white mats and thin neutral frames).

The floors in this space are so striking. Dark hardwoods and white walls are balanced by simple, striped area rugs that create a little bit of interest without overwhelming the room.

Almost all the mostly-modernist furniture is neutral: rich wood tones, beiges, browns. Color is focused in the artwork and the fabrics.

We love the little bit of Old Hollywood drama in the bedroom. The geometric pattern on the rug looks great paired with the soft, curvy lines of the bed. This is one of our favorite color schemes: blue and yellow.

A basic black-and-white palette lets texture come to the forefront. David Netto's use of stripes is so subtle and smart...they wander through the entire apartment, shifting a little in each room, moving from the floors to the walls and back again.

The designer's specialty: kids' rooms. You can spot a number of pieces from the Netto Collection in this nursery.
