Project by: Lindsay Boswell and Ali Levin of LABLstudio
Location: New York City, New York

We recently completed an "Alpha Contemporary" space for a bachelor in his early 30's. It's a one bedroom apartment with bold lines and cozy elements. Vintage Esquire magazines our client had was the inspiration behind this apartment! Our client wanted to increase the value of his apartment with some simple, creative and cosmetic design solutions.

Lindsay and Ali have also recently updated their website with virtual and in-person design services:

"LABL studio offers some really great budget-conscious virtual design services such as the "Remix" where we will help you choose some new accessories to give your space a whole new feel, as well as "Virtual Room Design" where we will design your entire room for you within your specified budget — everything from paint color, to furnishings and accessories — along with any tips and other suggestions we have. If you're in the NYC area we will come take care of your "Design Emergency" by spending a few hours designing and knocking out a full re-design of your space, leaving you with recommended paint colors, a new layout, and an itemized shopping list, all within your budget and specific to your taste and style."

More on their newly updated website! And more photos can be spotted on their Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks, Lindsay Boswell and Ali Levin!
