Jackie’s apartment is the perfect definition of chic meets glam. At only 466 square feet, this studio-turned-1-bedroom is any girl’s dream sanctuary. From brass accents to cosy seating, this apartment has it all.
As stunning as this apartment is, it didn’t necessarily start out this way. It took a few months to create the dream space Jackie was hoping for. With a little bit of patience and a lot of design, Jackie and I transformed her space into the sanctuary that you see today. Check out the journey and transformation below:
When Jackie first moved into her apartment, she thought of a clever way to turn her studio into a 1 bedroom from an image she found on Pinterest. She and her father spent 3 days transforming wardrobe doors into a wall to separate her bedroom from her living room.
After the doors were installed, her apartment consisted of dull artwork, dark seating and a cluttered aura. After a few months living in the apartment, Jackie slowly started adding brighter elements into the space including a light gray sectional, a white area rug, a marble coffee table and neutral colored bedding and throw pillows.
When I first walked into Jackie’s space, I was pleased to see she had her bases already in place. My job was to pull everything together to create that “chic” look Jackie wanted. By incorporating new decor, moving furniture and adding new seating options, Jackie’s home completely transformed into the space you currently see now.
A Pinterest post gave Jackie the inspiration to install chic shelving above her workspace. Glam AND super functional!
I instructed Jackie to cover her dining table with contact paper to mimic the marble in her living room. It not only adds glam in the space but makes it feel cleaner and brighter as well.
We added neutral, lighter toned seating in her bedroom to create a sanctuary feel. Jackie wanted a space where she could read her books and look out the window.
Jackie is the perfect example of a young, successful, talented woman who exceeds in everything she puts her mind to. From killing it as Production Manager at The Dr. Oz Show to creating a beautiful oasis out of only 466 square feet, there’s nothing this girl can’t do. Thank you, Jackie, for letting me into your home and allowing me to share this journey with you!
