Three small space apartment layouts under 50 square meters (540 square feet), all with glass wall bedroom designs that offer up inspiration for different design features. Our first tour is a renovation of a small apartment space, with before and after floor plans shared at the end. The glass wall bedroom fills a nook by the window, behind an almost undetectable screen. Studio apartment number two makes a feature of its glass bedroom by framing it out in black, and colour coordinating its decor with the kitchen. The neutral bedroom in home three lays quietly behind elegant glass bifold doors; it also is the only one to incorporate an ensuite bathroom setup, which is set behind its own glass wall.

The first small studio apartment is located in Arcadia. Odessa. As the sleeping area has been positioned by the window, a glass dividing wall between the bedroom and the living room means that natural light can be shared between the two areas.
The modern sofa is a slimline design that allows it to be set well back in the small room, leaving the centre of the floor feeling more open and spacious. It also leaves just enough area for a home office placement at its side.
A soft grey rug defines the lounge area from the mini home office zone. There is a huge bookcase tucked behind the sofa that also serves the workspace with reference books.
Round coffee tables occupy the deep pile living room rug. A modern fruit bowl dresses the larger of the two.
Pale blue paintwork provides a restful hue across the lounge accent wall. A modern patterned throw makes an interesting final touch on the plain grey sofa.
The lounge area looks directly into the kitchen and dining area.
The contemporary lounge chair seated opposite the sofa is the Wegner lounge chair. Its small footprint leaves plenty of room to walk around it with ease.
Geometric kitchen tiles bring colour and pattern to the whole room. A mauve dining chair cushion matches the bed throw inside the glass wall bedroom.
At first glance this seems to be a one wall kitchen, but taller units and an integrated oven have been fit flush into the perpendicular wall.
A white hallway leads off the living room.
The wood and white round dining table is the Eksjo dining table. White and wood Eames style Eiffel chairs complement its finish. A white dining pendant light completes the smoothly curved ensemble.
A concrete planter makes a modern dining table centrepiece.
Inside the bedroom, a small floor lamp and a modern wall sconce light either side of the bed. A piece of modern wall art is mounted off centre to continue the asymmetrical aesthetic.
Wooden doors conceal plentiful closet space at the home entryway.
Sky blue geometric tiles and purple towels colour the bathroom.
A curvaceous vessel basin and a tall mirror are offset to one side of a wood effect bathroom vanity unit.
Grey bathroom storage cabinets and a slender stack of bathroom shelving fill one entire wall.

We go next to an apartment in Lviv, Ukraine, which measures in at 47 square metres. A black mid century modern chair and a beige sofa pair up on a round rug to form a minimalist living room.
Across the room, a light wood dining table set stands beside an unusual olive green kitchen. White wall cabinets keep the room looking bright.
A neat pendant light hangs low over the table in a matching shade. See more dining room pendant lights.
Wooden pegs protrude from the kitchen wall to make a wine storage tower.
Terrazzo tiles scatter a light pattern across the kitchen floor.
A minimalist home office area is set out next to the bedroom, where a black designer table lamp accessorises a light wood desk.
The decor inside the glass wall bedroom includes the same olive green colour as is featured in the kitchen.
Similar bedroom pendant lights hang on either side of the bed, though the shades are slightly different to take the look a little off-beat.
A unique bathroom sink makes a solo white accent inside an all yellow bathroom. A round vanity mirror echoes the shape of the vessel basin.
A floor to ceiling mirror makes the hallway look twice its length.

Our third apartment, another from Odessa in Ukraine, is a 48 square metre home.
We enter via the kitchen, where three black kitchen bar stools line up along an island.
Directly adjacent to a wall of kitchen cabinets, glass bifold doors draw back to give entry to the bedroom. The lounge stretches out in front of the bedroom, where a glass coffee table complements the clear bedroom doors.
Decor inside the glass wall bedroom is neutral so that it falls quietly into the background of the living area.
An elongated headboard spans the whole bedroom wall. The finish of the platform bed perfectly matches the flooring.
The bathroom runs off the bedroom in an ensuite arrangement.
A cylindrical pedestal sink is matched by a yellow side table. The custom cut vanity mirror covers the entire bathroom wall, all the way down to the floor tiles.

THE LOOK FOR LESS
We've had a break in the heat here in Atlanta and the weather has been great. With temps in the 90's for over 2 weeks in May....I was thinking it's going to be a long frizzy hair summer....haha
The other day I posted a picture in Instagram thinking "I got nothing good to post today so I will just slap up a small corner of my clean house". You know "party clean".
Well geez it must have been a slow day on "the gram" cause it got quite a few likes and that got me to thinking that maybe I will do a "look for less"....or "how to recreate the look" for y'all in case anyone is interested.
You know....all 20 of you! Hee Haw.
So here is the picture.....
It's just a few of my favorite things.....
So let's start with the magnolia branches. Lucky for me they are plentiful in the south and I have 3 "little gems" in my back yard which is basically a smaller version of a magnolia tree. If you can't just run out in the back yard a cut branches then you can always go faux......[no judging]
Next up is my swan art which is original by Dawne Raulet. It is one of my favorite possessions and will be under my arm when I run out the door. In fact I want to be buried with it.
I found a few for you that won't break the bank but still give you a good look!
Mix in some other art on the gallery wall.....Here are a few I used on my One Room Challenge from Minted! Also just to show you.....here I took an old frame and put a vintage letter in it....be creative...frame anything.
Add some black and white books.....all found on Amazon.
To stack on top of the books a black box with gold accents. Mine came from West Elm many years ago but I found a few for you that won't break the bank!
I found the statues online and a few other items that I think could also work! These are for some height.
The other side....
I got my sunburst mirror at HomeGoods many years ago and I really looked for one similar that wasn't crazy expensive and in stock. I was amazed to only find one.... but the other things will give you a round shape!
I found this bust at Ballard Design I actually found mine at.....wait for it....HomeGoods.
And to finish up....
Some crystal balls.
Did I leave anything out? Yes.... the old concrete bowl with the limestone water filtration balls. I searched everywhere for you and I did find some on Etsy and Ebay but they were already sold. I got mine at Scott's and if you want some [and you aren't local] then you will have to come here and get them!
That's all I have for ya. Get to work creating your own vignette.
It's Friday y'all!
Take it up a notch this weekend.....
