Combining styles that are very different from each other is always a risky business, but I think the designers of this apartment managed to pull it off satisfactorily. This apartment is a perfect blend between modern style and traditional style, and as a result, it looks very unique and stylish. The furniture choice is probably the aspect that gives the most contribution to defining the style of this apartment. Some of the furniture looks modern while some other is more traditional, but the two different styles coexist in the same space and blend together to create an eclectic, like-no-other look.
The focal point of this apartment is the spacious open plan living room.It has a sloping wall full of glass panes that allow plenty of natural lighting as well as a nice view of the historical cityscape outside. The dominant color here—and in the rest of the apartment—is white, which provides an excellent background for the fascinating furniture and decorations. Here we have the first glimpse of the apartment’s mix of traditional and modern styles. The sofas are arguably of the modern style, with bright red and blue colors. The flat screen TV and the sloping wall with glass panes certainly look very modern too. In contrast, underneath the sofas we have carpets with traditional ethnic patterns, and at one corner of the room there is an Egyptian-style table with a Pharaoh statue on it.
The study is another great example of the modern and traditional styles blending. Here we have a utilitarian desk with metal legs and a black swivel chair not unlike the ones you can find in modern offices. Opposite the desk, however, there is a classic wing chair with a classing chandelier above it and another ethnical carpet underneath it. Other parts of the house also show the same interesting blend of styles. The dining area has an ethnical carpet and a classic crystal chandelier, while the terrace next to it—separated by a glass wall—are filled with contemporary metal chairs and tables.
All in all, the apartment looks awesome, inspiring, and very creative. The fusion of traditional and modern styles do not only makes it unique, but also creates a fresh, comfortable, and dynamic atmosphere.
