After years of living a busy life in the bustling city of Tel Aviv, a professional couple decided to make a life-style change by moving to a new city and became the proud owners of a more spacious apartment in Hod Hasharon. Designer Oron Milstein was chosen to revamp the property due to his renowned passion for the fashion scene, his endless creativity, and his out-of-the-box approach to creating luxurious, smart, and homey apartments.This mini penthouse apartment takes up an entire floor. It is L-shaped and stretches across 155 square meters, overlooking the endless ravishing green fields of Hod Hasharon.

Originally a 6-room apartment, Milstein decided to completely redesign the space creating 4 spacious rooms for the parents and their two children.The entrance leads directly into a wide-open space that includes the living room, kitchen, and a spacious dining area. To complement this area and create a unique and seamless clean look, Milstein chose large Basaltina floor tiles that give the apartment an elegant dark-grey tone.

Milstein injected the kitchen space with a striking and unique feel by creating a broad Corian niche surrounded by storage cupboards. The upper cupboards were painted in a deep graphite shade for a sophisticated look. The center of the kitchen contains an impressively large dining table, surrounded by funky upholstered chairs by Philippe Starck. A closer look at these chairs reveals their unique print, portraying known cities from around the world. Above the dining table hangs a light fixture that had been custom-made abroad. The constructed geometrical double light source hangs from the ceiling lighting up the space from two different angles.

In the center of the living room, located at the other end of this magnificent kitchen, is an aluminum-wave feature wall that imitates soft and airy drapes that are constantly in motion. A cosmic print rug, by top designer Marcel Wanders, defines the center of the seating area on top of which sit two matching steel coffee tables net-style, and two bubble-like sofas on each side that give the space its inviting feel.  A gorilla shaped light fixture, imported from Italy, is the pièce de résistance of this living space and sets as ravishing evidence of both the designer's creativity and the couple’s openness and passion for design.

A balcony that complements the apartment’s design, serves as an alternative entertainment space for family and friends. With multiple lounging areas and luxurious fashionable accessories such as an elegant and comfortable chaise lounge, a tall table facing the view and a special purpose-built structure that adorns the wall with foliage reflecting the spirit of the owner’s profession.

The master bedroom contains a sizeable custom-made bed, upholstered in rich luxurious fabric designed by Jean-Paul Gautier. The internal wall is in fact a carpentry masterpiece and serves as a wardrobe closet with integral brass doorknobs. Two geometric textured nightstands, designed by Tom Dixon, are positioned on either side of the bed, and compliment this indulging room. As a finishing touch, hanging from the ceiling, are two unique light fixtures. The children also enjoy their lovely bedrooms that include en-suites and walk-in wardrobes. The daughter chose a light and elegant shade palette, whereas the son opted for an urban-chic style, with darker and deeper tones.
