What was your biggest obstacle in this space?

If anything the apartment had little lighting, so we had to install lighting fixtures throughout the living room and dining room ceiling.

What are the hidden gems in your plan?

Particular artwork was featured throughout the apartment, and there is character in every section. A great highlight in this space was the black 3-D wall panel in the hallway.
