Interior in the style of minimalism: lessons of design by Elena Teplitskaya

What decor to choose for such self-sufficientstyles like minimalism and hi-tech? Is it necessary to do this at all? We continue a series of useful tips for decorating space from designer Elena Teplitskaya Interior decorating is a creative process, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, rather complicated and requires certain knowledge, many of which are available only to professional decorators. So, in April this year, within the framework of the Mosbuild exhibition, a famous designer shared with her students and colleagues tips on effective interior decoration. The information turned out to be so useful that we decided to devote a series of articles to it, in which we will reveal all the most important theses of the lecture, and we start with the features of two modern styles at once - and minimalism. Elena Teplitskaya, designer The famous Russian designer, creator of interiors and designer clothes. She is known for her bold experiments with color and the ability to find organic design solutions even in outrageous projects. She studied at the Moscow State University of Art and Technology. Stroganov, then in Switzerland and Great Britain. Since 1999 he has been the head of the Teplitskaya Design studio. Permanent participant of the Moscow Fashion Week. Elena Teplitskaya's style is a special attitude to architecture, interior design, clothing, art objects, based on inner harmony and the ability to accurately convey mood. www.teplitskaya.ru Colors and materials Minimalism and hi-tech are similar in many ways. Both are spacious, large volumes, clean lines. Among the dominant materials are concrete, glass, metal and leather. The palette is almost always built on the basis of gray, black and white with the addition of silver, metallic and sometimes red. Lacquered and chrome-plated surfaces prevail. It sounds brutal and very stylish, but all of the above refers to cold materials that are responsible for non-residential space. And if a monochrome gray-black-white gamut is added to concrete and glass, then we get non-residential space in a square. That is why in the interior, as much heat as possible should be added to the minimalistic concrete-glass structures and the whole decor should be built on this principle. Carpet Make an interior in the style of minimalismor high-tech, the right carpet will help warmer and more tactilely pleasant. Try to find the most comfortable option with a long and thick pile. Also look out for Nepalese and other handmade woolen carpets. Painting be sure to hang on the walla work of art: either a single large canvas, or several small ones that form a single composition. Stylistically minimalism and hi-tech are best suited for abstract painting: from Rauschenberg, Rothko and Kandinsky to contemporary, including little-known artists. Ethnic details Minimalist interiorwill organically complement all kinds. Your choice is metal and embossed products from China, Mongolia and Morocco, African totem idols, large mango wood vessels and light Indian basins. And you can find a similar ethnic decor, for example, in the “Interiors of the Maharaja” stores. Hi-tech is linearity, linearity and againlinearity. It makes us stop looking at something non-linear. Imagine this interior: a gray floor, white walls, a gray sofa, a glass table with legs. The most necessary decor in this situation is something non-linear and textured: sculptures, large canvases, intricate ethnic gizmos. Elena Teplitskaya, designer
