In One Uptown Residence's model unit, the sleeping area looks airy, spacious, and inviting since the built-in cabinets are seamlessly incorporated into the layout. Opting for frosted glass cabinet doors adds a sleek appeal to the overall look while concealing the owners' personal belongings.

Warm neutrals make for an elegant palette.

Achieve an inviting ambiance with neutrals like mocha, taupe, and gray. These colors can instantly make a space more welcoming and homey. Take your cue from the model unit of The Montane by picking a dark-colored sofa and pair it with accessories in lighter colors and glass for a balanced look.

Storage Tip: Niches are handy storage solutions you can incorporate in any part of your home. Similar to what's seen above, it can be situated in the living area to hold decor, accessories, and other knickknacks. Niches are great alternatives to shelves.

A built-in side table gives you storage and a place to display photographs, gadgets, and other collectibles. Take inspiration from the photo above by sourcing for built-in side tables. Since you have free space underneath, you can use it to store shoes, stacks of magazines, and extra bins.

Shop for sleek side tables at Habitat.

An extendable table that can be pulled out from your shelf or cabinet comes in handy if you need a space for work, reading, or if you want to have a vanity corner. Pair it with a comfy chair to complete the look.

Cool colors like green and blue are great accent hues.

Pops of color can help liven up a space dominated by neutrals and keep it refreshing. Pick pillow covers with nature-inspired prints, green or blue throws, and additional pillows in light yellow. These furnishings can make any room extra welcoming while maintaining the airy vibe.

Shop for similar pillows at H&M Home.

You can always depend on mirrors to visually expand your space.

Whether you have a mirrored cabinet or an unexpected column fitted with a mirror—any will do to create an illusion of a bigger space. As seen in the model unit of Avida Towers Turf above, you can incorporate it as part of your storage or decor for a cohesive look.

RL Tip: While floor-to-ceiling shelves and cabinets can add height to your space, leaving a free space above gives you more room for storage bins and other belongings. Keep the look stylish with woven bins and catchalls.

These model units originally appeared in the February 2017 issue of Real Living Magazine.
