article_bachelor-bash.jpgThe owner of this smart unit knew exactly what he wanted when it comes to his space. "Modern without being cold," "minimalist yet comfortable," and "functional without sacrificing style" were the key phrases designer Kristine Neri was asked to work with.

Aware of his needs, the owner also enumerated his essentials early on: a shoe cabinet by the entrance where guests can neatly leave their shoes, a wine cabinet, a stylish "media wall," and comfortable bay window ledges. Kristine wasted no time in providing these necessities, while also leaving room for surprises her client could enjoy. The result is a home that strikes a balance '60s mod flair and sleek, modern freshness.
