Shades of Gray Add Sophistication in this Tel Aviv Apartment by Maya Sheinberger

Apartments are made for living in. That is why interior designer Maya Sheinberger designed this Tel Aviv apartment around the lifestyle of its owners: a couple in their 60s. Articulated around a large living space punctuated by a graphite-gray kitchen, the 1,300-square-foot apartment is dressed in a gray color palette, injected at times, with small doses of turquoise and nudes.

Complete with a terrace overlooking one of Tel Aviv’s many green spaces, the living room extends into a hallway that leads to a bright master bedroom for the couple and a smaller room for their grandchildren. As Sheinberger explains: “It was important for the owners to keep an efficient home with lots of storage space and still get a warm, modern, up-to-date home that matches the character of the couple.”

The dining area is framed by translucent drapes in light gray, while a large oak table and light pendants made from blackened wood and gray glass decorate the space. Photography by Itay Benit. 
In the master bedroom, a set of black iron and glass doors leads to an en suite bathroom tiled in yet another shade of gray. Photography by Itay Benit.
