How to create such an interior so that it hasIs it comfortable for everyone - both the owner and the tenants? Today's studio is a vivid example of a rented apartment where you want to stay longer. The client wanted to make a small studio in the center of sunny Sochi as soon as possible. At the same time, the space should have retained its volume, and the interior would be dominated by light shades and natural materials with natural textures. Designer Yulia Telnova took over the development of the apartment project in a modern style. Julia Telnova, interior designer She graduated from the B&D Institute (Institute of Business and Design) at the Faculty of Practical Design. For more than 7 years he has been designing interiors of varying degrees of complexity, mainly apartments and country houses. telnova.ru Related articles The customer purchased several apartments in a new residential complex in the center of Sochi. One of them was a small studio with an area of 37 square meters. The apartment was not intended for the residence of the permanent owners, so the approach to the development of the project was different. Yulia Telnova: - The customer wanted to renovate this apartment for rent, he turned to me to develop a design project. I helped categorize potential tenants and analyze their needs, wants, and taste preferences. First of all, it was necessary to pay great attention to the functionality of the space and to use the small area to the maximum. A feature of this apartment is the correctsquare shape and large panoramic windows overlooking the city. The layout was free: there were only partitions near the bathroom, a place for the kitchen area was determined. The designer offered several options for the layout of the space, and the customer settled on where there was a full-fledged sleeping area, separated from the general space by a partition. The entrance area was visually separated by another partition and a different floor covering. Porcelain stoneware with a stone texture was chosen for the hallway and kitchen area, while in the bathroom its effect was enhanced by tiles imitating the surface of wood. The kitchen apron is finished in porcelain stoneware with a similar texture, but in a more intense color. These materials were used locally, sothe leading role in the interior was taken by wood of warm saturated color. It is able to add coziness and contrast to the space, so it was used in flooring in the living room and bedroom area, on the wall in the TV area and at the head of the bed. The walls in the apartment are painted and have a warm sandy hue. As a color accent, yellow is used, but it is present in doses, in elements of textiles and decor. The kitchen set, in which all the necessary equipment is located, closes the end of the furniture and increases the surface of the wall along which the cabinet is located. The dining group is designed for four people, but if necessary, the table can be moved apart. The rest of the space is the living room.The sofa visually separates this area from the kitchen, together with the armchair, it faces directly to the TV on the opposite wall. The open layout of the space does not hide the volume of the room and allows you to enjoy a beautiful view from the huge windows. Yulia Telnova: - Almost all the furniture in the project is white, that's why it looks airy and fresh. I deliberately did not use a large number of different materials, so as not to overload the space. If desired, the tenants of this apartment can adjust the color scheme to their taste by changing accessories. Lighting in the project is zoned and has severalmodes. Along the panoramic windows there is a gypsum board structure that hides the curtain rod and LED lighting. The kitchen zone has spotlights, including a large pendant above the table. In the living room, there is a central light and a spotlight; at the bed there are two sconces. When designing, it was necessary to take into accountavailability of materials and furniture in the developing and under construction city of Sochi. Therefore, furniture from IKEA was used, Dulux paint was used for the walls, and porcelain stoneware from the manufacturer Atlas Concord (Supernova Onyx and Frame collection). Yulia Telnova: - Now the project is underway and will soon meet its first residents. In my opinion, this apartment is a vivid example of ergonomics, which, provided that the apartment is rented out, does not make it faceless and rustic. I believe I have managed to create a cozy, light and comfortable environment in this small space.
