House and Cottage

Interior of the week: a colored house in the style of Provence in the suburbs

I like the style of Provence, but think that it is not forOur interiors? Then, perhaps, a vivid example from the Moscow house will convince you of the opposite and inspire you to finally decide on such an experiment. Elegant and unusual Provence can be found not only in exquisite French mansions in the southeast of France, but also in our suburbs. The interior of this house was designed for a family with two children by the architect Tatyana Morozova. The space has magically turned into a real paradise garden, inhabited by unusual birds of different colors and bright colors. Want to make sure that the Provence - it's not always whitewashed interiors in a neutral color scheme, that this style can be very bright and multifaceted? Then look! Tatiana Morozova, architect We already wrote about one of Tatiana's projects, get to know him better and find out more information about the architect.

Features of the layout

The house was literally built from scratch. As a starting point, a typical project was selected, slightly adjusted to the wishes of customers and their lifestyle. The main material was a profiled beam, because the architect personally recommended it. The erection of the house took about a year and another winter of downtime on technological requirements. And then it's time to finish, to create a provence so desired by the owners.

Garden of Eden with Birds

Rapidly expanding Moscow has come very closeTo the old dacha owners in the Skhodnya area, so it was decided to build a new country house, so that it was closer to the untouched urbanization of nature, where there will be a rivulet, birds chirping in the mornings and a lush garden. The provence chosen for the interior, as it turned out, is loved by every member of the family, but still it needed to be slightly adapted to our realities. And the customer herself wanted to escape from the abundance of white shades, characteristic for the style, and enrich the space with bold color accents. So the project received conditional names "Paradise Garden" and "Flower Provence" is not without reason. Tatyana Morozova, architect: - The idea of ​​a blooming garden and birds was laid in the basis of the general concept and was reflected in the huge panels. In the parents' bedroom, it turned out to be iridescent thickets, and in the daughter's room - a tea rose. The author of the remarkable works was the artist Anna Schott, who by request carried out these wonderful works in the technique of fresco.

Bright natural colors

Harmonious, natural and rich interiorIt seems not just so. After all, these bright colors were taken in accordance with the shades of plumage of birds, their breasts and crests. As a result, it turned out to represent all the colors of the rainbow, where everyone plays with special colors, fulfilling their unique role. A light shades of natural wood have made the overall picture augmented and holistic. Tatyana Morozova, architect: - Birds have become a major theme of the project and its constituent element. In order not to acquire template images of feathered friends, whose quality often leaves much to be desired, it was decided to make them themselves. For this, digital pictures of the birds of the famous ornithologist and animal painter John James Audubon were purchased. And then, using watercolor paper, they were printed out with their own hands and framed. The result turned out to be excellent and, most importantly, unique.

As if by magic

To illuminate the house, the classicalSolution - a central lamp, floor lamps and table lamps, additional lighting zones. But still there is a very interesting feature. This house is built in an amazing place, because no matter how many people come there, it's as if the sun always shone through magic, even when it was raining in Moscow at that time. Therefore, the architect decided to use wooden blinds. Making their way through them, the sun leaves wonderful images inside the house, fascinating look, and it gives the impression of the eternal southern sun.

How to create an interior in the style of Provence

Let's figure out how to adaptStyle Provence under our realities and whether it is necessary to fully adopt all its characteristic features for its interior. That's what the author of the project Tatyana Morozova advises on the example of this house:

  • Do not try to create an interior of pure style, such a real Provence, because we are not in France. It is necessary to stylize it.
  • First, study and analyze the mainFeatures a style of Provence. These include a common light bleached tone, ceiling beams, shutters on windows and doors, an abundance of textiles and small details (paintings, prints, frames, mirrors). Wooden surfaces and textures - floor, beams, furniture, as well as painted - furniture, windows, doors. As a rule, you need coloring in light pastel colors: white, creamy, bluish, beige, pinkish.
  • Then take as a basis what is suitableYou and your interior, separating all unnecessary. For this project we decided to choose a combination of wood with white coloring, ceiling beams, especially since they are constructive. The floor and ceiling made the same color / texture, which allowed to visually combine the interior. Well, as you already guessed, blinds on the windows, thanks to which beautiful striped shadows are obtained.
  • Add something from another opera. Yes, it requires a modern interior. At us it was a bright tile with obvious east color for a floor and walls, both background, and with an ornament. More posters with the image of birds, from the images of which the entire color palette of the interior was repelled. Plus we took modern and classic details: furniture, floor lamps. I would add a couple of very modern elements, for example, colored plastic chairs or thumbs. But the customer was categorically against plastic.
  • Do not forget to fill the interior with something copyrighted andOriginal, which no one else has. We stopped at a fresco with a somewhat non-scale image of flowers: irises and roses. The scale has been specially modified and enlarged to give a modern sound to the whole interior. The picture is made to order in the specified color palette.
