The Playbook For The Modern Man

Turkish Home Is 50 Shades Of Grey Done Right

Full screen

The book deserves all the scorn you can muster, but these shades of grey we can get behind.

This small apartment in Turkey, visualised by Ceren Torun Yiğit, isn’t the most expansive piece of real estate we’ve ogled. At 57 square metres, some would even call it tiny. But gorgeous design makes up for anything it lacks in size. It’s stylish, masculine, modern and inviting.

What stands out most is the colour scheme. The primarily greyscale palette is subtle and refined. Black, white and every possible shade of grey in between are used to great effect. Outside of that neutral theme, pops of bold, trendy chartreuse bring light and life to the space.


Pale woods are used throughout – take special note of the spectacular floor – to ensure the apartment never gets too dark. A series of interesting lighting fixtures also contribute to the cause. The finishing touch is the exposed brick that creates a welcome break from the strongly contemporary look.
