For the city dweller, there is nothing quite like the view from a luxury apartment.  Designing a city apartment interior can be a challenge.  Many have open floor plans and are small on space.  Here are some beautiful spaces and a few tips on how to style a beautiful city apartment.

Open space styling can be intimidating to some.  The best way to design an open style city apartment is by visually dividing the space to how you live.  Designate areas for dining and seating.  Area rugs can play a major roll in defining a space.  Use them to anchor a living area.  Place a dining area in an alcove or divide the living space.

Designing for open spaces calls for a seamless flow between areas.  Keep to the same style aesthetic throughout.  Neutral colors work wonderfully for city apartments.  This allows a backdrop for more dramatic furnishings, artwork and accessories.  A neutral backdrop is also ideal for apartments with great views, as the view becomes the focal point.

Bedrooms in the city apartment can be small and lack closet space.  To maximize the area, use furnishings that are dual purpose and utilize vertical space by installing floor to ceiling bookshelves.  Space under the bed and built-in cabinets can serve as clothing storage.

The city apartment boasts character from exposed brick, hardwood floors and traditional moldings, often quite elaborate.  Highlight these beautiful architectural details.  Paint the walls a soft beige or gray and accent the trim with white gloss paint so that it stands out.  Refinish hardwood floors and place beautiful area rugs in the room.  For exposed brick, leave it in its natural state for maximum stylish impact.

Furnishings in the city apartment are stylish and functional.  Comfortable sofas and plentiful chairs offer an abundance of seating options for everyday living and entertaining.  Convertible furniture, such as stools and benches, are an enhancement to the apartment interior, as they can offer additional storage and can be placed out of the way under tables when not in use.

Minimal accessories infuse a city apartment with character without sacrificing valuable visual space.  Use accessories that are bold and meaningful.  Even a collection of colorful throw pillows that pick up the colors in a painting create an impact.

In a neutral setting, add texture and dimension with interesting fabrics on an accent chair, ottomans and pillows.  Use natural accents to create texture and add interest.

City apartments are abundant in charm and character.  They can be quite luxurious or warm and cozy.  For open floor plans, divide the space visually.  To maximize space and keep the view as the focal point, minimize accessories and use neutral colors as a backdrop for more dramatic pieces.  Stylish and cosmopolitan, the city apartment appeals.
