It's hard to make smaller spaces look good without going overboard when it comes to decorating; however, if we follow Russian artist and designer Natalia Akimov's take on simple compact apartment designs, we might just be able to pull it off.

Natalia Akimov's latest project takes on the interior of a modest-sized apartment, and the results are stunning. Using a bold monochrome design as her base, Akimov plays with the contrasts to give this humble abode a simple and very striking finish. Playing with the accessories and patterns to make this compact apartment design work, the designer mixes the black and white master design with flowery patterned walls.

Reminiscent of stark but still surprisingly warm Scandinavian designs, this chic apartment invites you in with its nonthreatening ambiance and turns the notion of compact to cozy.
