The client was brimming with excitement as she presented an inspiring gallery of small condo design ideas. It was filled with beautifully composed spaces showcasing various possibilities of condo interior design ideas.

Along with the inspirational gallery, the client completed an online quiz to outline their specific tastes and requirements. Carefully answering Decorilla’s personalized design questionnaire helped the team narrow the options for finding the perfect interior designer. The following consultation with the team brought suggestions for two experienced modern apartment decor & design professionals.

Each designer presented their take on the client’s vision through moodboard concepts for the living and dining area. Although the client was impressed with the quality of both, Liana S.’s modern condo interior design ideas truly exceeded all expectations.

It was obvious that the designer paid close attention to the brief, taking note of the inspirations, lifestyle, and requests. She worked closely with the client to understand their vision, ensuring that every inch of the space would be adequately optimized. In return, Liana’s initial proposal promised a functional layout that could indeed maximize the limited living area. Different furniture arrangements, color schemes, and decor choices blended into one coherent composition, integrated into the new condo living room design.

The designer’s modern condo interior design ideas allow the client and their visitors to experience the beauty of nature in a warm, comfortable setting. Her strategy takes advantage of expansive windows, opening the layout towards generous marine views without competing with them. A seamless combination of natural and man-made elements nods to the mid-century design and timeless ingenuity of renowned architects such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. At the same time, pops of decorative boho details keep things interesting, aligning the design with the client’s passion for traveling.

Properly scaled, the condo living room tables and cabinetry ideally complement the stunning wood flooring. Their bright yet warm hue sets the tone for the rest of the neutral earthy color palette with discreet pops of white, navy, and orange. Meanwhile, the sleek dark gray seating grounds the arrangement, embracing its simplicity without compromising the overall fresh and airy atmosphere. 

Inviting Living Room & Dining

Incorporating a tasteful blend of elements, the expertly curated dining area with a wet bar extends the creative story further. With its natural shade, a solid, oval wooden dining table juxtaposes black upholstered chairs, serving as the perfect low-key centerpiece for this refined space. In the background, a highly functional black and bronze wet bar exudes modern sophistication with a slightly traditional flair. It hosts the client’s extensive wine and spirits collection in a discreet manner, still making them easily accessible to bring out and throw a party.

A contemporary condo home office feels like a natural extension of the living area with its sleek and thoughtful aesthetic. The design continues the same minimalistic staging with a light bronze and black color scheme and mid-century modern furniture. Meanwhile, the use of contrasting shades, tactile materials, and textured surfaces adds depth and interest to the space.
