For a couple who wanted a simple, low-maintenance style for their three-bedroom condo unit, interior designer Gelo del Mundo drew inspiration from the cool vibe of New York City apartments. For a hip and stylish look, he chose a subdued color scheme and mid-century modern furniture and furnishings.

Just like most New York apartments, the space is defined with distinct wall features such as faux bricks and wallpaper with different patterns. The urban appeal is also emphasized with the use of new pieces that have a vintage, distressed look.
