MOODBOARD | A HARMONIOUS RIOT OF COLOUR IN DESIGNER’S NYC APARTMENT

How Ritika Bhasin transformed an ordinary space into an eclectic oasis

“I am not married to a particular style or brand and am always pairing the unexpected”, says Ritika, a design graduate from Pratt. Bringing this philosophy to life is her bright, eclectic apartment in NYC that breaks many a décor stereotype. When she found it, the apartment appeared dull with very little natural light to its credit – however, with smart tricks like painting the living room walls pink, using bright prints and unusually pairing one statement piece with another, she transformed it to an unrecognizably vibrant space – the kind that one enjoys looking at no matter how long they’ve spent there.  Let’s take a tour of the designer’s most cherished masterpiece.

Going by her rule on prints: “Every space can handle one large-scale print, one geometric print, and one small-scale print”
