Eclectic Istanbul Apartment

A mix of furniture styles, from an iconic Eames lounger to a classic tufted sofa, gives this apartment a lived-in vibe.

"The idea of ‘elegant decay’ can get unattractive very quickly unless it’s done with a light hand," says Arren Williams, stylist and founder of the design blog Arren Williams Design Lab. "Here, in this fantastic turn-of-the-century apartment in Istanbul, there’s just enough mottled and aged plaster walls to be interesting against the eclectic mix of interior furnishings. The interior was designed by a fave firm of mine called Autoban. They have worked on some really interesting projects that always marry old and new really well."
