    Those are really cute, well-designed little apartments! I especially like the first one, the sofa doesn’t look very comfortable but its rich, dark wood and the rattan (Viennaise braid?) look super-interesting and add texture. Coupled with the shaggy rug and the velvet/velour furniture, the texture mix is fascinating! It also looks a bit empty in some shots, though, and I can’t see a TV or computer. I wonder if this is a main home or just a secondary one? Still, really well done!

    I also like the two differently sized mirrors over the dining room in apartment 2, that’s a great idea! And apartment 5 is just cute and very feminine overall. Apartment 9 has an absolutely beautiful kitchen! And apartment 12 has a really clever color scheme, the black supporting beams turn a necessity into a feature.
