Style with Color

Color can open up a space and add original style. A prefab space has unique features for maximizing space, a Chicago space becomes a hideout for storage ideas, a New Yorker colors her apartment 14 hues and a London space gets stylish.

Pablo Uribe believes that the keys to a comfortable atmosphere are effective organization of space and manipulation of light, principles the Columbia-born architect puts into action for clients on both sides of the Atlantic. In London, Pablo and his architectural partner Rob Baines took an 800-square-foot, compartmentalized, ground floor apartment in a 100-year-old Victorian mansion and opened it up, creating a bright, flowing, multipurpose space serving as both home and design studio. The interior is modern, but not cold — with cherry wood floors, fine imported furniture and art.

Pablo eliminated all nonstructural walls and converted the second bedroom into a dining/social area with a built-in bench. Floor-to-ceiling cherry panels conceal storage cabinets, and as an article in The Independent stated, "this place has storage like the rest of us have junk." Kitchen appliances are also concealed behind cherry wood cabinets. At the back of the kitchen sits a desk lit by the window, maximizing every last bit of space.
