Inside Derek Bradley's Manhattan studio apartment

For product designer Derek Bradley, coming home from Facebook's gorgeous New York City office to a drab studio apartment was not ideal. Beige walls and poor lighting had Bradley calling on Homepolish, a startup that has designed spaces for other startups and homeowners. Working with Melissa, one of Homepolish's interior designers, Bradley was able to transform his 400-square-foot home into a bright and beautiful space.


Taking inspiration from the Facebook offices and Bradley's graphic design background, Melissa was able to play with bright, bold colors and patterns. "[Derek] knew he wanted his space to be hip, modern, and minimal," she told Business Insider. Let's take a look inside his transformed seventh-floor apartment near Union Square.
