Studio Apartment Packs Big Style Punch

Hand-painted pinstripes and removable wallpaper on one accent wall add instant style to this small rented studio on Manhattan's Upper West Side. A West Elm Henry sofa comes alive with pillows that feature bold brushstrokes of magenta, and a feather Juju hangs above as a whimsical touch. A Blu Dot for Target console table does triple duty as a vanity, workspace and dining table.

Fun Colors and Accessories in Small Living Space

A feather Juju and painterly pillows add pops of color and big punches of style to this small studio apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Hand-painted watercolor pinstripes adorn the walls and set the space’s neutral palette. A small cube coffee table and nubby pouf are versatile and easily moveable accents.

Multifunctional Console Table in Studio Living Space

This small rented studio on Manhattan's Upper West Side is short on space but long on style. A Blu Dot for Target console table does triple duty as a vanity, workspace and dining table. The pinstriped wall paint treatment is both easy to produce and easy to cover up, an ideal combo for a rental. Hexagonal mirrors from IKEA add an artistic yet inexpensive element between the windows.

Contemporary Studio Apartment With Accent Wall

This Upper West Side studio began its life as a bland white box. Now, soft cream on the walls continues to the ceiling beams, adding depth and dimension to the space. The hand-painted pinstriped paint treatment is both easy to produce and easy to cover up, an ideal combo for a rental. Removable wallpaper by LABLstudio forms a focal point on one wall, and layered bedding exudes youthful, casual charm.

Studio Apartment With Smart Style Solutions

Because this space is a rental, LABLstudio used removable wallpaper as a wallcovering. Hand-painted, watercolor pinstripes adorn remaining walls, continuing the gray and cream color palette. To save money, the designer painted the client’s existing bed a high-gloss gray and hung a shelf above to serve in place of a bedside table.
