Feature Friday: Jana Bek

Our Work | June 7, 2013

I am really happy and excited to share with you this amazing Studio apartment today. I think most of us are all struggling with expensive taste and small budgets. It’s always a challenge to create a home you feel is beautiful but also do it a way that you can afford. I think this is especially challenging for Interior Designers! Jana Bek is an incredibly talented designer who knows just how that feels. Here is what she says she loves most about her home:
I love my space because it feels bright & airy with a
few punches of color. As it’s a very small New York studio apartment, I set it
up like a hotel room to maximize seating and to keep an open flow. As the one space
needs to function as a bedroom & living room, I choose to show off my bed,
friends often sit at the end of it, we pull out the stools from under the
console & it allows me to entertain with ease.

I also love that my apartment is a collection of high &
low. I was very patient in putting it together, the console is from Ikea, the
floral pillows are made of vintage bark cloth I sourced on Etsy, & the
lamps are a DIY which you can read more about here.  The colors in the bark cloth
pillows were actually the inspiration for the palette of the room, mostly
neutral with pops of fuchsia, turquoise, & jade green. The more high-end
items are mostly from One Kings Lane, so though they were investment pieces, I
still got them for a steal. 

Because this is a studio apartment we don’t have a lot of peeks into many rooms but I think what Jana did with this small space is amazing!

Here is a small peak into her little bathroom.
