Old Meets New in a One-Bedroom Condo
Modern-industrial pieces and rustic wooden details make up this bachelorette pad
Modern furniture can help create a clean look in your home. However, these items may seem cold and generic. To add character, interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo suggests complementing contemporary pieces with wood, leather, and metal décor.
In this one-bedroom condo, Kristine paired sleek chairs, tables, and other home basics with rustic accessories. The result is a chic, streamlined bachelorette pad that exudes warmth.
The front door of the high-rise unit opens to reveal the dining and living areas. The dining tabletop is made from wooden slats in different colors. It is paired with two fully-upholstered seats with metal bullets. These small touches may seem simple but they make the space more interesting.
In the dining and living areas, the modern furniture pieces are complemented with different textures of the shag throw pillows and freshly cut leaves in vases.
An accent wall separates the dining and living areas. A three-tier console table has a modern, utilitarian feel. To balance the industrial look, Kristine picked weathered décor like an oversized frame with a distressed finish and 1940s American vintage shoe lasts from Urban Abode.
A pair of art prints is taped on a wall-mounted miniature wooden crate.
A metal deer head hangs above an aquarium from ADA Nature Aquarium Philippines.
A wooden door and a full-length mirror rests against the wall. In front of these pieces is a fully-upholstered armchair. A gray wooden chest with metal details is used as a coffee table.
A gray three-seater sofa is made inviting with colorful tribal-print and shag pillows. The fully-upholstered seat is placed next to a wooden side table with geometric legs.
Just like the rest of the one-bedroom condo, the bedroom has a neutral color scheme – the rustic wooden headboard is complemented by white pillows and sheets.
To spruce up the bedroom wall, the surface is lined with metal oxheads. These unusual finds add to the eclectic feel of the space.
