Sparse colour tantalises in these four small interior designs, used in moderation so as not to overwhelm the limits of each space. Neutral decor remains dominant to paint the illusion of increased volume, and guide more natural light throughout. The studio apartments all measure under 40 square metres, so you’ll also discover some super resourceful layouts at play here. Dynamic storage systems prevent the limited living areas from becoming overwhelmed with belongings, whilst clever layouts divide space effectively to conquer small home challenges. Stay tuned for a cube lounge, a closet-cum-kitchen, and a disappearing dining table.
