The studio apartment (that I stumbled upon at nytimes.com) by architect Rick Joy in Chelsea for Paul Palandjian, a Massachusetts-based consultant is right up your décor alley! It is a happy blend of minimalism and warmth cultivating the right kind of spectacle and making a basic studio apartment look and feel monumental. His imagination has conjured a place where you can sashay through the lush materials, good design and details like wide whitewashed planks, a continuous inner skin that sprouts walls of the closets, a bed, a dining table and a bench that can be pulled over to the dining table for extra seating. I was especially drawn to the leather door handles, soft linen curtains, white reflective ceiling and the arched lamp used as an alternative to recessed ceiling lamps.
