Name: Renata
Location: Chicago
Size & Type: 550 sq. ft. convertible studio

Favorite resource: Scouring through magazines, catalogs and other people's apartment design ideas and taking bits and pieces that fit my personality.

Pitch: I managed to create rooms within a room using basics like color and furniture placement. I have the luxury of having a convertible studio which means there is some wall separation of the room. One of my red couches splits an otherwise ordinary and long room in half creating a living room and bedroom/office.

Pitch Cont'd: The turquoise paint adds a "live in me please!" element to the living room and kitchen while the dark chocolate brown, which was incredibly fun to paint – like putting melted chocolate on my walls – creates a more soft and more relaxing but still slightly sexy feel. It's hard to do it justice in three pictures!

Your favorite element: The color. I like how the green Pellegrino bottles above my kitchen cabinets clash perfectly against the turquoise kitchen walls, I love the brightness of the red couches/turquoise walls, I love the champagne colored quilt and how the texture of it works with the bedroom wall.
