Be inspired by this minimalist, spacious home in New York City

WHAT: A 2150sqf New York City apartment, designed StudioLAB.

WHERE: Near Riverside Park, New York City

WHY WE LOVE IT: This modern apartment was designed to be spacious and minimalist - with features that will remain stylish as the family evolves over time.

Although the apartment sports a minimalist style, a fabric L-shaped sofa and cushy swivel chair adds a cosy vibe. Built-in cupboards keep the living room clutter-free, while the open shelves let the family display what they love. That's one way to inject personality and keep the place neat.

Walls were knocked down to create this open and spacious dining room area. The overhead panel helps demarcate the area naturally, while keeping to the neutral colour scheme.

According to Design Milk, the homeowners wanted an open plan that was conducive to entertaining and that allowed natural light to flood the interior.
