When we hear the term “bachelor apartment”, our minds usually jump to a few stereotypical images. Perhaps you might picture dark colours, leather, and a super casual feel that borders on well lived in, or maybe you’re thinking of something closer to the kind of “man caves” you see in magazines and on television design shows. Well, this apartment might be called Bachelor, but we think you’ll find it a little different than your expectations!
Bachelor is a residential project created by design and architectural firm M3 Architectural&Construction group. Located, in Budva, Montenegro, this apartment puts a fresh spin on the idea of a “bachelor pad”, and we’re not just talking about its name. The colour scheme, which keeps things light and airy throughout the entire home, is bright and refreshing despite remaining neutral, making updates and changes easy to make thanks to how easy white, taupe, and grey are to match.
Colour scheme aside, the rest of the apartment is simple in a rather aesthetically pleasing way as well. Rather than aiming for styles and decor that are intimidating or very grand, designers kept the furnishings streamlined and visually interesting, letting one or two features in each room take centre stage. For example, smooth cabinets and a simple block sectional couch are contrasted with a contemporary open fireplace and floor to ceiling curtains in the living room. In the kitchen, plain white counters and a long, clean table stand juxtaposed against bubbly pendant lights and textured grey chairs. This theme continues through to the bedroom and master bathroom as well, where the unique shape of the side lamp and the bathtub create interesting visuals against a plain, comfortable bed and a stark marbled bathroom.
The overall effect is one that’s pleasantly modern but still casual enough for comfort. The best part, perhaps, is that the wide windows and fresh colours keep the place bright. There’s nothing cave-like about this “man cave” in the slightest!
