A Louisville bachelor’s modern apartment: Simple yet sophisticated


Joel Dansby’s one-bedroom apartment is small but is great for entertaining.

When you’re a bachelor, you need a few things in a home: An open space for one or more people; accessories that are simple, yet sophisticated; and a table set for wining and dining guests.

Joel Dansby, a retired social worker, has the perfect pad at his Axis on Lexington apartment. His one-bed, one-bath digs may be tiny for a family of four, but for this stylish single guy, it’s the perfect fit.

Perfect place for one

Dansby might only need a place for one, but his apartment has enough space — and dining settings — for many of his closest friends. “They’ve been coming for years,” said Dansby, who said much of his decor is dictated by his mood.

The apartment is an open concept, which makes the residence feel much larger than its 890 square feet. Dansby was particularly drawn to the open concept, which he said is perfect for entertaining.

“I fancy myself a cook,” Dansby said as he stood next to an iced lemon cake in his kitchen. His dining table sits under a rustic gray chandelier and is set with mid-century modern tableware that’s both classy and chic.

Also making the room look spacious are the large, floor-to-ceiling windows, which bring light to the living room/dining room/kitchen area of the home. Dansby was really attracted to the dark cabinetry, lots of storage, wine chiller and quartz island for extra seating in the kitchen. 

“It’s the kind of things you see in big homes,” Dansby said of the items already installed in the space when he moved in.
