As soon as you spot the bathtub right next to the kitchen sink, you'll know this is no ordinary apartment. That's right — this is not, in fact, a picture of a bathroom, as I thought when I first saw it. It's the kitchen of interior designer Mischa Lampert's impossibly serene 300 square foot Soho pad.
"I am obsessed with making everything versatile," Mischa says, and the kitchen slash bathroom (you only need one sink!) is just the beginning.
In the living room, the only other room in the apartment (unless you count the tiny toilet room), a set of linen-covered ottomans can be folded and unfolded and rearranged to create a u-shaped couch, or a queen or even king sized bed. There's even an option to create a guest bed in the second room, as seen in the plans below.
The apartment, which Mischa has been working on since she moved in in 1999, is clearly a labor of love. To me the most impressive thing about the apartment (well, besides the crazy versatile bed) is the amount of restraint it displays. Furnishings are kept to a minimum, and the color palette is very, very simple, so a few unusual items (the plush trompe l'oeil wallpaper, the giant fuzzy blanket, the black and gold accents) get a chance to shine, without disturbing this little space's incredibly serene vibe.
