Stepping inside the apartment, you walk straight into the small kitchen. The matte black cabinets stand out, and a mirrored backsplash helps to make the space appear larger.

Opposite the bed, there’s a mirror on the wall, again helping to make the room feel larger and reflect light, and off to the side of the couch is a vertical cabinet that houses a fold-out ironing board.

As the apartment has original Art Deco touches, some walls were left white, while others are made from a lime-washed plywood that adds a touch of warmth to the space.

Beside each side of the bed are floating black cabinets and curved mirrors, a throw-back to the art-deco era.

Beside the sleeping area is the bathroom. A timber slat floor and ceiling introduces texture and tactility, while the white tiles and large mirror brighten the space.

To the side of the vanity is the walk-in shower with a glass surround. The white tiles and wood elements continue throughout the bathroom, and a pull-down blind provides privacy without blocking out too much light from the window.
