This West Village Studio underwent minor renovations to open up a kitchen wall, adding much needed light and storage. Shelves were chosen over cabinets in the kitchen to keep costs down and a built-in bookcase with cabinets was added on the opposite side. Beyond functioning as extra storage, these shelves and cabinets created a valuable countertop. The warm grey and white color palette keeps this apartment open and airy while creating a clean backdrop for the large, colorful acrylic painting cherished by the owner.
