Situated in the Antwerp fashion district, just a street away from the Mode Museum, Sleep in the City is a trio of "shopping apartments" available for short-term rentals. Owners Bert Verschueren and Vincent Defontainers have created stylish interiors using a collection of vintage furniture painted matte black against a backdrop of pure white walls and floors for an airy feel. Each Sleep in the City apartment is different; prices range from €120 to €150 euro. Here, a tour of Apartment 11. Above: A 90-square-meter duplex, Apartment 11 has a living and dining room, full kitchen, bedroom, bath, and WiFi for €150 per night (minimum two night stay). Above: An antique desk is given a second life with a coat of matte black paint . Above: In the living room, a  Mies Van der Rohe Barcelona Chair in black leather upholstery ($5,271 at Design Within Reach), and black cow hide (for something similar, visit the Raw Hide Company ). Above: The large kitchen features a wood work counter, botanical prints as decor , and glass open shelving. Above: A (mostly) white bedroom is partitioned off from the bath with gauzy floor-length curtains. Above: In the ensuite bathroom, a claw-footed tub. Above: An  antique black-framed mirror hangs above the tub.  The glass-windowed door leads to a roof terrace.  Above: A glimpse of Apartment 12.
