Ingenious Apartment Idea: Charlie’s Studio

Charlie-apartment-design

The American television series,”Girls” has a very inspirational idea when it comes about home design: Charlie’s Studio, a tiny apartment turned into one amazing little space. The studio was designed by Laura Ballinger Gardner – designer for the show. “Her team built Charlie’s wall storage unit, had it pigmented to achieve Mondrian-esque color blocks, and filled it with guitars and what seems like an impressive vinyl collection…” The concept sketches by Anne Allen Goelz sell in space and show how much you really can do in an itty-bitty space. The apartment has birch plywood furniture, the bed is tucked under the raised platform and the clothes can be stored in more birch casework. ” The sconces were a vintage find; most of the lighting in the apartment is from Ikea.” The layered rugs hide the cheap, contractor-grade linoleum floor. “Those toolboxes by the front door are quite expensive,” Gardner said. They are Gerstner & Sons pieces, “very beautiful, American-made wood toolboxes. People don’t want to carry them around anymore because they’re heavy, but we thought it’s something he would have.”

    I haven’t seen this TV show. So I understand this is not a real apartment but a design for a TV set? It’s just there doesn’t seem to be a bathroom.

    In Denmark you can still find apartments with bathroom/toilets in the hall, maybe you can in America too…
