Dreams of customers

The customer of the project was a successful Muscovite. She wished for a visual expansion of space. Since she was accustomed to a dynamic lifestyle, she wanted to surround herself with modern interior items. For this purpose, the minimalist style, popular today, was chosen.

Features of the layout

Since the area for a kopeck piece is relativelysmall, only 61 square meters, it was decided to combine the kitchen and living room. At the same time, it was possible to divide a single space, which was done with the help of a sliding partition. At the request of the customer, two small dressing rooms were created - in the bedroom and in the corridor. Yulia Kirpicheva, designer: - One of the conditions for redevelopment is to provide a maximum area for a bathroom. Thanks to the complex configuration of the room, we were able to achieve this goal and make it quite spacious.

Color solution

Since the goal of the project is to make the space visually larger, then a pastel color scheme was used to decorate the apartment, where the auxiliary shades are beige and light brown.

Lighting Scenarios

The living room uses a combination of pointlight and glowing ceiling: built-in lighting and a transparent woven fabric that gently diffuses light, while visually raising the ceilings and increasing the space. The corridor is illuminated thanks to spotlights and decorative sconces on the mirror. Interestingly, this technique plays on increasing the light in the room (due to reflection). In the kitchen area, as in the living room, built-in lighting was installed. To highlight the dining area, a Flos Skygarden design lamp was installed above the tabletop. In the bedroom, built-in lamps play the role of the main lighting. To create an intimate atmosphere, table lamps were placed on the bedside tables, and sconces were placed on the wall.

Materials and Brands

The main material for a minimalistic finishthe living room served as decorative plaster. The floor here is made of engineered plank, which was also used in the bedroom. The Möbel & Zeit sofa maintains an atmosphere of simplicity and lightness, which has a modern design and is made in white, which gives the interior an airiness. The walls in the bedroom and in the corridor were covered with wallpaper from European manufacturers. For the cladding of the kitchen, balcony and bathroom, they used porcelain stoneware, as well as Johnson Tiles floor and wall tiles. Yulia Kirpicheva, designer: - The most valuable thing in this project is the unity of style. When designing, we managed to preserve the original concept and concept of the entire interior.

Tips from Yulia Kirpicheva to create a similar interior

  • Use a neutral color scheme, but warm colors.
  • In the modern interior and in small rooms it is worth noting the central lighting. Preferably give the built-in lights.
  • A decorative lamp can be added to the kitchen, as an accent in the interior and to create a cozy atmosphere. By principle - a table and a lamp shade above it.
  • When decorating an interior is better to useLarge-format paintings: painting, graphics, posters - they will visually change the scale, determine the center of the room, but it is better to use the baguette narrow (2-3 cm).
  • Use for zoning spaceSliding partitions. If desired, they can isolate one part of the room, for example, a sleeping area. And also if you wish, you can again return the studio space without extra efforts.
