The hipster culture has introduced the world to lots of new things, most of them rather offbeat and quirky. The hipster subculture is one that is very progressive, often veering off from mainstream culture. The whole practice of coffee drinking and vegan lifestyles was made popular by hipsters, as well as beanie hats and travelling the world to volunteer at various causes.
With all these counter-culture elements coming from the hipster community, you can expect hipster apartments to be a place of fun experimentation coupled with quirky accents. Why not scroll down and have a look at what some hipster living spaces look like:
1) Edgy Steampunk Cube

This loft in Bulgaria was converted into an apartment with plenty of hipster vibes, and the most obvious feature here would be the dark central ‘cube’ which actually hides the bathroom. It kind of resembles a steampunk fallout bunker, and even has characteristic steel bars hanging from the ceiling.
2) Weathered and Bare Walls

One unmistakable characteristic of hipster interiors is the tendency to leave walls bare and unpainted. This means that you’ll see lots of bare cement or red brick walls. In this urban hipster apartment, the walls have purposely been left as they are, weathered and peeling, as this gives the apartment its own character.
3) Dark and Romantic

This apartment belongs to Denis Krasikov, a Russian gaming magazine editor and you can definitely see the weight and masculinity he has worked into his home, with rather dark accents against a grey and white background. A standout feature would be the chandelier that sports and peace sign, and some crazy spider legs.
4) Minimalist White Balance

Balance is key in any design, and this hipster kitchen does that, with two hanging lamps over a dining table with four comfortable chairs. The row of green plants beside the dining table adds an air of freshness and cleanliness to this kitchen/dining room setup.
5) Unconventional Lights

Another hallmark of hipster living is the placement of uniquely designed lights around the home. The more unconventional it is, the better. Many modern-day stylists also love to use neon lights to decorate their homes, and hanging lights with large bulbs are a favourite too.
6) Wooden Wall Finishes

This particular bedroom uses a wood finish on the walls to create a rustic atmosphere, and hanging bicycles are a popular decorative item for hipsters, along with multiple framed pictures and bookshelves. Fairy lights and votives are particularly favoured for bedrooms as they produce a soft and comforting light.
