First Studio Apartment Ideas – IKEA Home Tour (Episode 402)



In episode 402 of the IKEA Home Tour Series, the Squad heads to Philadelphia to help Ginelle, an aspiring 2D animator, makeover her current barebones studio apartment.

As an up and coming digital designer, Ginelle needs to ensure the space in her home promotes a creative and relaxing ambience. This space serves as her office, bedroom and living room, so the Squad will have to ensure that they create an environment that is stylish as well as entertaining and relaxing. Let’s see what types of studio apartment ideas they came up with.

To start, the Squad chose a NYBODA coffee table for its reversible design that allows you to change the table’s look and added a NYMÖ lamp shade bringing decorative light patterns to the space. By incorporating a KALLAX shelving unit into the studio apartment’s layout, the Squad was able to divide the space into separate “”rooms.”” Ginelle now has space for a cozy, private bedroom and a living room that will allow her to comfortably host friends and family in her new apartment.

Because Ginelle’s apartment was in need of nearly everything, the team also wanted to ensure that her blank canvas was finished out with the proper necessities and color-coordinated accessories. For the seating area, the team included the SÖDERHAMN sofa in a stylish color with a plush VINDUM rug. And lastly, the Squad used a LINNMON/ALEX table with plenty of storage for her art supplies and proper lighting to ensure Ginelle that has a place to focus her creative energy.

  1. That's hella expensive. Where is the closet?

  2. i like it and i love you ikea

  3. I preferred it before .. now it looks cluttered

  4. Why would you do your art in the darkest spot of the studio?

  5. what makes the designer think the warm lighting is best for her working space? she is an artist who obviously works with colours and even uses traditional medias!

  6. Did anyone see what the square footage was of this room? It would be helpful to know so that we could use these floor plans for our own studio apartments. Very pretty end result. Good luck, Ginelle! 🙂

  7. Where does she hang her clothes?

  8. Too much stuff.
    It looks cluttered.

  9. Ľubomir Kocurek

    Really cheap price for all that furniture, good job and thanx for motivation ☺😊😉🙄

  10. Looks cramped af

  11. I must be an idiot
    But it feels like a set.
    Being filmed.
    Staged.
    Hired acting.
    Not like real life.
    If it is, i would respond better if they would show the rest.
    Even a studio usually has a dorm fridge , microwave etc table chairs etc.

    Its missing

  12. Catherine Somerville

    Sorry The art/work area belongs on with natural light/window side not in a dark closet.

  13. To establish the work area in a corner with no natural light was really stupid.

  14. How many Square feet is the apartment?

  15. Mary Therese McCool

    Very nice.

  18. Wow those two people really represent modern day Sweden

  19. It was such a beautiful minimalist space… they totally ruined it! Filled it with clutter and dust-collecting ikea garbage. And what privacy is she talking about!? Isn't it supposed to be a studio apartment? like for one person!!??

  20. Courtney Fleming

    This is really cute but I think it’s too much in a small space – it looks so cluttered that it’s hard to notice the nice details, and the apartment seems smaller after.

  21. FANTASTIC!!!!

  22. no kitchen?

  23. LOVE IT💖💖💖….IKEA I need help with my studio.

  24. is it a human? or is it a dinosourus?
