No Money, No Problem — This Studio Found Style For Practically Nothing

Jun 23 2014 - 11:34am

In the heart of Soho sits a classic, New York apartment with a California soul. Filled with flea market finds, up-cycled storage, and vibrant textiles, the once dark studio now has a sunny new look. With the help of Homepolish designer Noa Santos [1] and the client's West Cost roots, the newly decorated apartment proves that style doesn't have to come at a price. Sure it's small, but creative touches — like using wooden shipping pallets as a bed frame — will easily inspire your own affordable updates.

Aside from being a conversation piece, chalkboard paint offers a cool contrast against the studio's white walls.

So cute! An old spice box adds a pop of color and is perfect for jewelry.

No doubt, the room's focal point is the day bed (that also doubles as a sofa). The frame was made stacking industrial wooden shipping pallets; a cute and clever way to store shoes!

Multifunctional furniture is key for a studio apartment. The blue trunk can be used as a coffee table, extra seating, and storage!

A repurposed ladder offers additional shoe storage. Such a great idea!

Mixing patterns and colors provide a playful, unexpected look; especially in a small space.

Old hardware drawers are just another example of the apartment's creative storage.
