Today a white, slightlyindustrial, but generally quite elegant interior. This apartment is located in New York and is completely saturated with its loft atmosphere. The interior of this apartment was created by architects from the design studio The New Design Project. They love to experiment with textures, various materials, mixing styles and filling the space with extraordinary lightness and notes of industrial design. This 2-room apartment cannot boast of an excess of square meters, and the architects solved this problem with the help of color. They took white and light shades of gray as a basis. The neutral background is diluted with the warmth of the parquet board and the texture of the brickwork. A decorative wall element on a wooden frame gives originality to the interior. The advantage of the space was 2 windows, whichlet in light in both parts of the living room, illuminating it well during the day. In the evening and at night, other light sources work in the apartment: a lamp with an elegant and eye-catching lampshade on the curbstone near the sofa, a metal ceiling chandelier, incandescent lamps on wires above the bar and unusual hanging sconces above the bed in the bedroom. Rebelliousness and tranquility merged in a single impulse to create this eclectic interior. The rough brickwork is softened by the elegance of the fireplace. Together they create a warm ensemble, which is "complemented" by crackling coals in the evening. Our opinion In small apartments, try to unload the space as much as possible. Don't put on bulky furniture. Give preference to a neat decor. Avoid large prints on wallpaper and dark walls, which can visually reduce your "crumb". A wooden frame was placed on one of the walls withblack graphic inscriptions as a reminder of New York's freedom-loving disposition. You can easily make a similar decor item with your own hands. Find a suitable baguette and a wooden board (a slate can also work for its role), write kind words and decorate the wall with your wishes. It will be pleasant not only for you, but also for your guests. What's more remarkable: some of the furniture here is made from recycled materials. For example, the role of poufs is played by old cable coils on which soft round pillows lie. And the coffee table is a rusty 2-legged tray that rests on a wooden box. Bold and stylish! To support the spirit of freedom, dining and kitchencombined with the living room. The element that divides the space is the bar counter, which simultaneously serves as a dining area. There are chairs assembled "in pieces" near it. Their frames are made of plumbing pipes and their seats are made of metal covers. The walls of the kitchen differ in tone (towards the gray shade) from the walls of the living room. On the floor - large tiles with monochrome prints, on the walls - white tiles, stylized as a brick. The stove and oven are made of steel. Its cool sheen echoes the chrome fittings. The wooden countertop harmoniously complements the space, bringing notes of warmth and comfort to it. Our opinion Take into account that the fewer items are on the countertop, the more visually spacious the kitchen appears. The white color and glossy as well as metallic surfaces give a sense of space. Everything in the bedroom is simple and concise:bed, natural textiles, a shelf above the berth, made by hand from old things (from a wooden board and a belt). The walls here were painted in a noble ash shade. It does not depress, moderately refreshes and adjusts for a pleasant stay. We decorated the room with just a few black and white photographs in monochrome frames that look very impressive against a neutral gray background. Our opinion The problem of small space is the most frequent companion of the Khrushchevs. Ideal shades for such bedrooms are pastel, white, gray. The decor is minimal, the storage systems are compact. Mirrors can become assistants. Choose compact models (for example, round, as is the case with this room): they will be a great decor and visually help make the room larger. A small bathroom for architects did not becomeinterference. The problem of limited meters, they decided simply - executed it in a virgin white color. As a basic finishing material, medium-sized tiles were used. The industrial theme can be traced even in this small room: above the mirror there is a metal lamp, and on the wall are fixed net shelves for towels.
