What if you dream of a red apartment?Is it worth the risk and how to properly handle this color? The designer Artemy Saranin knows the answers to these questions for sure, having recently created the interior of an apartment for a lover of bold decisions and red - one of the most controversial colors. It symbolizes danger and passion, sin and happiness, and many other contrasting concepts. Psychologists are still arguing about the effect that this color has on the psyche and emotional state of a person, but they agree on one thing: red is active and sometimes aggressive. What should a designer do if the customer wants a completely red apartment by all means? In one of the latest projects, Artemy Saranin faced just such a requirement and today shares his experience with us. Artemy Saranin, designer Born and raised in Perm. From the age of 5 he was fond of interiors, painted and received an art education, graduated from the Moscow Academy of Painting. Work experience - more than 15 years, during this time he has implemented more than 100 projects in various cities of Russia. Today it specializes in the HoReCa segment (hotel and restaurant business: restaurants, cafes, clubs and other public places). Works as a designer in the Allartsdesign studio. Finalist of the international PinWin competition. allarts-design.com About customers More precisely - about customers. This apartment was created for a girl working in the field of trade and her teenage daughter. The initial task was to somehow decorate, since this room is traditionally considered a kind of "visiting card" for guests and therefore requires a special approach. However, having received the keys and looking at the rest of the premises, the designer made a decision: everything needs to be done. Expectations from the release were fully realized: after 4.5 months of renovation, a spacious, light and moderately bright red apartment was born. Artemy Saranin, designer:- The client really insisted on red throughout the apartment, so I tried to muffle it as much as possible everywhere: I used red accents as the dominant color and diluted with light tones. The customer's daughter immediately said that she did not need red. Layout The apartment is located in a new residential complex, completed without finishing. The designer received a standard layout at his disposal, as in many other apartments. It was not possible to radically change something because of the load-bearing walls, but this was not required. To implement the plan, we needed a spacious living room with a kitchen, a bedroom and a nursery, which were already in the planning from the developer. Living room + kitchen Since the project started withliving room, it was she who became the central element of the entire interior. The main idea lies in a special structure that divides the room into three parts. The uniqueness of the layout lies in the fact that the fireplace is not against the wall, but "in the air", it is also placed in the center, another part of the living room is occupied by a dining table with a hob. Bright elements include a red sofa, a red kitchen apron and a wall with lush greenery. Master bedroom Quite large areapremises allowed placing a full-fledged dressing room in the bedroom. Above the head of the bed, three-dimensional letters appeared on textured wallpaper, highlighted from below. The result is a gentle soft light, and for contrast, the designer chose a beautiful feather chandelier. Nursery In the nursery - a fairly standard setfor a teenager's room: a bed, a desk with a comfortable chair, a wardrobe, a dressing table, a sofa. An interesting and very useful solution was invented for the sleeping and working area: they are on the podium, which you can quickly curtain and not urgently put things in order when friends unexpectedly come to visit. In the center of the room is a sofa and a TV. As for the color scheme, there are no hints of the customer's favorite red color: the palette is very calm, fresh, one wall is painted blue. The interior of the nursery turned out to be quite independent and unlike the other rooms. Bathroom In the bathroom we already meeta familiar set: rich red spots in contrast to white. For the floor and walls, a marbled finish has been chosen, and the red part of the wall is continued by a bright bath rug. Color scheme The project of this apartment is justthe case when the color solution almost entirely depends on the tastes of the customer. Initially, the designer was tasked with making a total red look: red clothes, red furniture, red walls. Now, looking at the completed project, many say that there is too much red, but for the customer this is not even enough. Artemy Saranin, designer:- I think I managed to find some kind of compromise for the presence of one color. Add brown, white, black. I replaced the brightness of one color with a high contrast. Materials Furniture was collected throughout Russia: the cabinet was made in Perm, the fireplace was originally supposed to be purchased, but due to the crisis, this idea had to be abandoned. In order not to lose the concept, the designer decided to independently redesign everything and make a fireplace in Perm: to weld the frame, calculate the heat release, thermal protection, ventilation, bio-burner, glazing, access to the fuel supply and other details. For the floor, a vinyl coating was chosen. In this project, a perimeter band was used with a double offset of the bars. The walls of the living room and corridor are made in decorative painting with semi-cover materials. In the bedroom - a voluminous wallpaper. Ceilings - tension, white and matte, made of GKL with painting. Full reconstruction - design, delivery of materials, finishing works - took 4,5 months.
