Now that the apartment starts taking shape, it is time to consider decorating. I am thinking of furnishing the it in the Gustavian style, with lots of white-on white tones, mixing antiques with modern pieces. Here are some pictures I collected on my Pinterest board "Inspiration for Budapest Apartment".
Mirrors and white walls reflect the light in this room.
Shades of white and gold create layers in this living room.
I love the graceful lines of these chairs.
More lovely Swedish inspiration. Robin
egg blue curtains are a nice touch.
Dining area with built in seating.
Thinking of creating a built-in daybed under the
window in the bedroom.
You may be curious, and rightly so, how I can oversee a big remodel while I live on the opposite side of the world. Although I was there this summer, since having left in July I have only seen pictures of the work done in the apartment. However, I am very lucky to have some expert help on the ground in Budapest. Working with the talented architect Anna Felcsuti is a real pleasure. We send pictures, links, renderings back and forth and talk on Skype about things like faucets, shelves or wall paneling.
Next time, I will post some kitchen photos that have inspired Anna and I to dream up the apartment's kitchen. Of course, once everything is built, pictures of the actual place will follow. You will have to wait until spring/summer 2013 for that, though.
