How to make an apartment in a marine style so thatIt did not look like a decoration for a resort advertisement? The answer to this question is known by the designer Victoria Skorobogatko - the author of a modern and bright interior, in which even the most insignificant details remind of the sea. But here you will not find banal tricks. On the eve of summer, we all dream of the sea and the sun, but the owners of this apartment - young, affectionately fond of each other and more recently a married couple - feel a light sea breeze regardless of the season. The reason for this is a common love for the blue color, the sea and everything connected with it, which resulted in a colorful interior decorated with a designer Victor Skorobogatko with a maritime accent. Victoria Skorobogatko, designer Graduate of the art and graphic faculty of the OSU and a member of the Union of Artists of Russia. Over the years - over 10 years of experience, as well as courses of the British Higher School of Design and the International School of Design. The main goal of the work Victoria sees is not the satisfaction of her own design ambitions, but the creation of a cozy and comfortable living space that would correspond to the taste and wishes of the customers. He believes that every project must be of high quality and thoughtful to the smallest detail, so it does not take many orders at the same time. Style and layout The main wishes of the customers concerned primarily the palette and stylistics of the interior. Favorite by both Victoria used in each room in different variations and shades, and to achieve sea mood was decided without resorting to too obvious techniques: blue and white stripes, ships and anchors. Since initially the apartment had a fairly logical layout, and the area of 80 squares allowed to accommodate everything without unnecessary tweaks, it was not necessary to make structural changes. As a result, the apartment has a standard but comfortable layout with a spacious bedroom, a kitchen-dining room, a living room, a functional dressing room and one, but roomy bathroom. The brightest is the blue colorImmediately at the entrance to the apartment: in the hallway its rich shades are used in decoration (decorative plaster) and in the lacquer coating of the console and the banquet. In contrast to the deep blue - light floor, ceiling, cabinet facades and doors. Also in the hallway of attention deserves light: on the perimeter of the ceiling built-in lighting is provided, which gives the effect of soft uniform lighting without a visible source. Kitchen-dining room In the kitchen there are already othersShades of blue: menthol on the glossy tile of the apron, the color of the sea wave on the wall above it, the blue planetary mixer KitchenAid and the bright blue color spot in the form of plastic dining. Neutral background for such saturated tones becameQuiet in color and style kitchen set from the Italian factory Scavolini, white folding table and other walls, painted in a complex shade of brown. Together with the bright windows and the cream-colored granite on the floor, they counterbalance the cold part of the palette. An important feature of the kitchen is panoramic glazing. On the one hand, it provides the room with natural light and allows owners to admire the beautiful scenery, on the other - it was important to make sure that the street was not visible to what is inside. The solution was found in the form of 3D-blinds with lamellas on a three-dimensional fabric basis, working from the console. When you need to change their position, they smoothly rotate around their axis. Particular attention should be paid to plasticDining chairs Calligaris: they remind of the sea not only in blue, but also with an unusual texture, imitating the water surface with a divergent circle around it. However, chairs are not the only place in the kitchen where you can sit. Near the dining area is a small sofa-bed, on which you can comfortably relax or read a book. Victoria Skorobogatko, designer: - In the kitchen, as well as in other rooms, different kinds of lighting are used to create different light scenarios. The main light is a central chandelier made of white ceramics, unusual due to its "leaky" shape, something reminiscent of a marine plant or jellyfish. Also in the kitchen there is a built-in light along the work surface (under the hanging closets) and in the dining area. Along the window glazing, there are a number of overhead turn lamps in the form of white flasks, and next to the sofa and table there are small swivel sconces for local lighting. Living room The main palette of the living room is turquoise, white and red as an accent. In the niche designed behind the sofa built in an open white rack, made to order according to the sketches of the designer. The wall behind it was painted in a bright turquoise color, the shade of which is supported by two pendant cupboards on the opposite wall. Because of the presence in the living room bay window with a non-standard angle, the sofa was also made to order according to the sketches of the designer, so that it fits as accurately as possible. According to Victoria, the manufacturer, who would have made the right size and configuration, without exhibiting a huge price tag, had to look for a long time. As a result, we stopped at the Italian factory Domingo Salotti. In the living room there are all conditions for recreation: In addition to a comfortable sofa and TV, a real home theater is installed here. On the wall behind the sofa hung a projector, on the top along the perimeter there are built-in columns, and in the niche of the ceiling a large screen is hidden. In the cabinet under the TV there is a built-in bio fireplacePlanika: it works on a special biofuel, that is, it burns real fire, but from it there is neither child nor smoke, respectively, hood is also not required. If you turn off the central light and leave only soft lighting around the perimeter, coupled with the fireplace, it creates a cozy atmosphere and a romantic mood. Viktoriya Skorobogatko, designer: - A marine chandelier in the living room is also created by the red chandelier coral of the Lumen Center factory. The curtains chosen for it are also embroidered with various corals. The embroidery is voluminous, so the fabric looks very impressive near. When we picked up fabric for curtains and saw a pattern of this coral embroidered fabric, and I and customers liked it so much that we decided to order only it. The theme of the red coral is also supported by sofa cushions with different versions of the coral pattern. In addition to the place for rest, at the request of the hosts inThe living room had to be placed and the working area, while making it as inconspicuous as possible. In the process of working on the project, the customer found a compact design - a small computer desk "Astolik" with a width of only 368 mm, which took its rightful place next to the sofa. Bedroom It was decided to decorate the bedroom in moreWarm and calm range, so that the blue color was not too much and he did not bother. However, in the general beige palette there was still a place for local blue accents. One of the wishes of the owners regarding the bedroomThere was a script of a non-main muffled light that would create an intimate and cozy atmosphere in the room. For this, a shallow niche with illumination was arranged behind the bed. The space inside was covered with wallpaper with a picture of the paisley, which the customer liked so much that he decided to repeat it on the curtains too: there, however, it is not so noticeable, as it is simply squeezed out onto the fabric. The central place in the bedroom is occupied by a largeA cozy Meridiani bed with a soft. Since the customers do not always have time to spread and cover the voluminous upper blanket, the designer decided to abandon it and confined himself to an easy sachet with a velvet finish in the color of the bed. The ceiling is decorated with a large chandelier of the Italian factory Axo Light from gray-blue suede. Bathroom Thanks to the rather largeThe area of the bathroom, there was a place for all the necessary sanitary equipment, including a large bath with different types of hydromassage, which customers dreamed of. Also in the bathroom there is a built-in cupboard-column with washing and drying machines. Opposite the bath hung long shelves with hiddenBacklight for accessories and cosmetics. The same illumination is also above the bathroom, which allows you to create a relaxed and romantic mood when the main light is turned off. In this interior were used: Entrance hall:
