Bright And Compact 1 Bedroom Apartment For Young Family

Starting a new family comes with many challenges, not the least of which is finding a suitable place to live. When making that important life transition from young married couple to new parents, it can be difficult to figure out how to incorporate your old sense of style with your new needs. This apartment, from visualizer Natalia Tsetsulina, uses playful colors, open spaces, and plenty of natural light to create an apartment that is efficient in its use of its 50 square meters (538 square feet) but still comfortable enough for a fresh, easy start to this new phase of life.

To make the most out of this somewhat small urban space, it is necessary to make sure every piece is carefully chosen, and so much the better if it can have more than one use. In this bright and airy living room, we have a comfortable gray sofa with pieces that can easily shift around to make a comfortable spot for an overnight guest, or just a nap for the new mother. The coffee table is also a convertible in its own right, with the different colorful layers lifting off to reveal storage and serving trays.

The color scheme throughout the living room is important as well. With big pieces like the sofa and walls using neutrals, it will be easy to change things up and give the area a refresh by just changing out a few pillows or an area rug.

The kitchen is also compact, but the countertop plays double duty beautifully with its butcher block construction. Even the walls become a multipurpose space with the use of chalkboard paint, making it easy to create a shopping list and impossible to forget the milk. A cozy dining table with whimsically mismatched chairs is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and have a quick catch up at the beginning – or end – of a long day.

  1. Because of the amount of light that's coming into the apartment as well as the light colour of the storage cabinets, what would seem like a small apartment actually feels very airy and spacious in my opinion!

  2. Classical-style villa situated in a central area of Nueva Andalucía, within walking distance to Puerto Banús, shops and all amenities. The property is distributed over one level and is surrounded by a mature tropical garden with a pool and a gazebo. The house was recently Refurbished. My view: This property as the one before is in a great location and has a nice large garden.
    Villa located in a peaceful area in Nueva Andalucía, just a few minutes' walk to restaurants and a short driving distance to Puerto Banús, the beach and golf clubs such as Aloha and Las Brisas. Beautiful private garden with terrace and BBQ area. Features: water underfloor heating throughout, automatic shutters, heated pool, heating, air conditioning, gasoil tank for the heating and much more. An ideal home for a family! My view: Located in a well-established area of Nueva Andalucia and with lots of potential.
    Nestled in the sought-after Golf Valley, on an elevated position, this property benefits from open views and all day sun as well as from being just minutes away to the area's acclaimed schools, shops, restaurants and nightlife. The villa has been refurbished to high standards (exceptfor the lower level) and features underfloor heating, intelligent home system, electric shutters & windows, air conditioning and alarm. My view: You can extend the villa as it is on a large plot and add another bedroom on the ground floor.
    We have a very interesting villa in a central area of Nueva Andalucia that will be coming on the market any moment. I will let you know the details of the property once I have them.
