When Homepolish interior designer, Justin DiPiero, moved from South Carolina and into his first New York apartment, he wanted to make sure his space was serene. Using space-saving ideas, neutral hues while focusing on texture, DiPiero created a calming cocoon away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

"I love this apartment because of all of the exposed brick and I launched the decor from there. Most of the pieces I chose were soft neutrals to compliment the red brick and architectural detailing of the space. I didn't want anything that would compete too much, but I added interest with really textural pieces to add depth to the room," says DiPiero of the Looli pillows sourced from Main and Gray Home and throw via Barn & Willow.

See the geometric addition to the space? We love the subtle addition of metallic to the wall, which was hand drawn by DiPiero and his friend. How? A level, a ruler and sharpie paint pens!

A petit-in-size modern chair is warmed up with a sheepskin throw while a potted plant is housed in a woven basket for added texture. Want to know a little secret? The Homepolish designer, who's home is short on storage, keeps his vacuum hidden behind the draperies.

An easy trick to transforming a space into a serene environment is by adding plants. Mix in with vases and glassware for an eclectic laissez-fiare vibe.

"In the bedroom, I wanted to keep everything really soft and calming. I had the bed's accent pillow custom made to contrast with the Barbara Barry euro shams I found at a local Tuesday Morning in South Carolina before I moved here. I'm a huge fan of neutrals as long as there are plenty of textures to differentiate," says DiPiero of his Williamsburg sleeping quarters.

Chez DiPiero, texture doesn't stop and textiles--an eel skin side table (with matte gold trimmings!) adds a sophisticated masculine touch.
