If a space wants to be looked spacious it should be painted in white. Both ceiling and wall of this apartment are painted in white also. Interior furnitures are also used mostly in white such as window curtains, bedding sets. Wood color wall combined with a neutral grey wall in the kitchen and bathroom brings a luxurious and beautiful look. In addition, glass walls and mirrors are also actively used in the apartment to increase the visual space.
