Project Title
Modern Masculine Studio
Project Description
Need creative, attractive and functional solutions for clothing, items, and display needed for 480sf studio apartment without having it look like a college dorm.
We used to have a loft for bed where there was storage underneath but the constant use of stairs was unsafe for husband. Layout can't really change but there is a lot of space not utilized properly. Want to make use of 10 ft ceilings, maybe add loft above bed for storage but ideally want things to be easily accessible. [*correction - layout CAN change, we just can't personally see what other options we might have]
Budget to stay within 10-15K. No lighting or decor accents needed since much is in storage but open to suggestions.
Would love to be able to have guests over to socialize.

I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Neutral
What do you currently dislike about the room?
-lack of storage; I work from home and my work involves needing space to dismantle computers and store large (and small) electronic equipment.
-would love to have a place to eat (flip down table?) but it would likely stay down and be in the way so if suggested, something simple or multi-function
-like the red accent in rug but it's not the right size for the new sofa, possibly a round one?
-the dresser in the room looks awkward where placed...love the ombre look and need something just as functional to store equipment.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
Sofa dimensions are in the attached image.

The bed is a Queen on a platform that we repurposed from the loft, so it's a bit wider than a standard queen and we deliberately made it a bit taller so that we had ample storage underneath, which we desperately needed. The footprint of the bed is 65" x 85 1/4" -- the wood needs to be refinished, but other than that, we plan to keep it. We'd consider replacing it if the bigger picture plan was significantly improved by replacing it.

The TV is a 46" - subject to be replaced with a larger one on a whim :) The Soundbar and the myriad of electronics in cabinet below it all stay and need an accessible home
The guitars & basses & amps all stay - hung or not, everything just needs to be reasonably accessible.

The desk does not need to stay (we had it custom made from some Ikea Besta panels that we liked, but we're not married to it). But we do need workspace for 2 people.

Everything else is fair game.

Additional comments to designers
Like current color scheme: The paint colors are BM Aura: Sidewalk Gray (walls), Pomegranate (the bump next to the desk, also the accent wall in our kitchen) and Old Navy (the trim and window sills). The ceiling is Behr's Ultra White (because our contractor had a few gallons leftover from another job).

Studio:
Since your room is large your color options with this room are quite broad

For your main color, we chose to use gray because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors such as white, blue. For your accent color, we chose to use red as it is a stimulating color that increases excitement and energy levels. In the living room or dining room red can ignite conversations and in the entryway it can create a strong impression. This color can also create passion in bedrooms at night when it appears darker, richer, and more elegant.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
