This renovation of a small East Village apartment transforms the dim, narrow spaces with splashes of color and built-in cabinetry. In the living room, a salvaged restaurant prep table from the Bowery is combined with rough oak planks to create a media center. A row of bare half silvered bulbs set the bright magenta wall aglow. In the bedroom translucent Ikea cabinets are united by a gossamer panel and a continuous white-washed oak countertop to form a narrow desk. The electric green bathroom, doors and storage locker ignite the long narrow hall that leads to the kitchen. A band of light surrounds the cabinetry with a warm glow, shining against the stainless steel counter and appliances and giving the eat-in-kitchen a romantic touch worthy of intimate dinner parties.
