What is your idea of a perfect home? While some people dream about living in a minimalist space filled with soothing light colors, others want to stay in a unique place defined by bright, vibrant, and playful shades. 

If you also want to come home to a house, condo or apartment that is absolutely out of the ordinary, you should check out this American homeowner's haven in the city! Here are the 5 ideas to steal from this extraordinary one-bedroom unit:

Install checkerboard tiles

Many of us used to think that checkerboard tiles have no place in modern homes. However, seeing this particular space has definitely changed our minds! We now think that black-and-white tiles can actually look sophisticated, especially when used in just one or two rooms. 

Just like this homeowner, you can also use checkerboard tiles in your foyer. You may also want to consider these pieces for your kitchen or bathroom.

Purchase soft furnishings

As seen in the living area of this one-bedroom condo, a lively combination of colors and patterns can fill an area with positive energy.

If you would also like to make your personal space seem like a blissful haven, you can replace old curtains, rugs, and throw pillows that have seen better days. 

Invest in wing chairs

If you are decorating your home on a limited budget, you may want to start by looking for a few wing chairs. A wing chair or two can help turn a modest space into a grand and elegant one.

More imporatantly, since these upholstered pieces are so cozy and comfortable, you would also love to sink into them! Just imagine sitting on one of these seats while watching your favorite TV show or reading a newly purchased book. 

Adorn your ceiling with industrial-style lamps

Why settle with a single crystal chandelier when you can hang industrial-style lights from your ceiling? These sleek pendant lamps can make your space surprisingly unique.

Choose a printed headboard

Many homeowners have started to appreciate the beauty and practicality of fully upholstered headboards! Aside from serving as a focal point, a headboard can make a simple bedroom appear warm and welcoming. 

Instead of buying a headboard covered in plain fabric, you can opt for one with stripes, polka dots, or even a classic damask pattern.
