Blueground set out more than six years ago to bring premium furnished housing to an apartment stock where furnishings were often considered along a utilitarian and cost-cutting axis. The result, albeit unintentional, was drab, uninspiring and flat-out inhospitable homes.
Fast forward to 2020 and a combined footprint of more than 2 million square feet, and the emphasis on making our homes even more loveable has never been stronger. Blueground, with a vision to make people feel at home wherever they choose to live, knows that homes are as individual as the people that reside in them. That’s why a dedicated Design and Product teams are behind a capsule collection of Bespoke Apartments.
“Our aim is to always keep our design dynamic, rather than static. These premium designed apartments will push boundaries and be a place to test new ideas.” says Jessica McCarthy, Blueground’s Director of Interior Design.
Though each Bespoke apartment is led by one of Blueground’s in-house designers, you’ll find some common design principles that run through all of these homes. A few items you can expect to see in a Blueground Bespoke Apartment include a workout MIRROR, a playful mix of textures, reimagined uses of natural materials and coveted wall art. Blueprint takes you on a multi-city tour of our latest tailor-made and professionally-decorated homes — all bookable starting at 30 days, a year or longer!
