Inspiration from Our Readers: Exquisute 80sqm Apartment in Israel

We recently received some photos of a lovely apartment located in Tel Aviv, Israel from young designer Ron Benshoshan. He and his girlfriend recently bought this crib (which was initially in a very bad state) and redesigned it. Here are the pictures together with the description Ron sent us: In the living room we put up a brick wall with 2 spot-lights to show all the imperfections of the bricks. Beneath the TV is a floating unit which I built. I wanted a big clock on the wall made of an item that repeats its self in cycles of 12. Eventually time was the answer! So I put up 12 classic-looking alarm clocks which I painted candy apple green. I also made the big bulb light with the red cords above. Big windows light up the whole place and play well with the 2 shades of gray in the dining area. I fabricate a white collapsible table with bare metal legs that were grinded down so they would all shine differently from each other. The 2 chairs were found in the garbage. A bit of sanding, paint and a visit to the upholsterer and we now have two lovely 60 year old chairs with a modern touch.

The kitchen was closed off and stuffy. We tore down the wall and merged the kitchen, living room and dining are in to one mutual area. We like having people over and we wanted them to be able spread around comfortably but still be in that same mutual area. We wanted a white clean kitchen with a small island.

In the extra room I put up a vertical playing area for my 2 cats, now they don’t mess with my couch anymore. Painted one wall in red with a few stripes to compliment the corner and installed a wall to wall closet on the other side for lots of storage area. I fabricated a small table and made a metal pipe table lamp. Once the sun hits the red wall, the whole room lights up.

The bathroom was split up in to 2 smaller rooms. One was just the toilet and sink and the other was the bath. We joined the 2 rooms in to one long area. Where the toilet was is now a large shower. Above the bath was a permanent storage area. Not permanent anymore… I wanted a nice sleek faucet that would double up as a towel holder so I made one to that exactly. It’s connected to wall and separated from the tap.
