Who says that a bachelor pad must be of a dark colour palette? We love how the owner had chose to jump onto the industrial chic bandwagon and decorated his own personal paradise to his liking. To make the apartment look more spacious, black frame glass panels are used to divide the bedroom from the living and kitchen space, instead of solid walls. One of the rooms were also knocked down to make space for a bigger bedroom.
