As from a sullen three-ruble, where catastrophically notEnough of daylight, to make an airy, interesting and bright space? Today we will introduce you to the apartment of young spouses, and tell you how their home was filled with light. Our today's heroes are young spouses, very positive and cheerful. They are young, in love and do not think of life without constant movement. Their main passion is cycling. When they bought this apartment, they came across the fact that there was very little daylight, and the space is so closed that it acted on them depressingly and prevented dynamic movement around the apartment. Then the guys decided to ask for help in the design studio Mooseberry Design Group, which specializes in open spaces. Not long ago we introduced you to their work. Denis Garbuzyuk and Nick Los, designers of the Mooseberry design group We already wrote about the studio's work, get acquainted with them and learn more about designers.

Features of the layout
Adopting the work on the project, designersThe studio immediately realized that without a global redevelopment here is indispensable. They got a three-room apartment with separate bathrooms and a long corridor, which did not get light. To solve the problem with lighting the corridor, the designers refused the door to the living room, instead widening the passage. Also, the wall between the small and large corridors was eliminated, which let in more air into the space. The bathroom was combined with the bathroom, as a result of which there was a laundry. Square meters of the bedroom had to be sacrificed a little to get even space in the kitchen. The only thing that the designers left unchanged is the balcony. Denis Garbuzyuk and Nick Los, designers of the studio Mooseberry design group: - This interior has many interesting details. Probably the biggest plus and our personal achievement was redevelopment. Thanks to which the apartment became lighter and more spacious. We really like the open plan, which turned out. In this case, there is some privacy. The bedroom is far enough from the entrance, the work area is also separate, which allows you to work at any convenient time and not to interfere with other family members.
Balcony instead of cabinet
And why did not they touch the balcony? It turns out that this was one of the wishes of the customers. Since the owner of the apartment works in the field of IT-technologies, he has to work very concentrated. For him it was important that the workplace was isolated from the entire apartment and nothing distracted him from programming. Therefore, the Cabinet decided to equip it on the balcony, after having warmed it.
But the dream of the mistress was redRetro-refrigerator, which became the main art object of the kitchen space. The kitchen itself, as well as the space of the whole apartment, is made in white tones. The kitchen apron was diluted with tiles of tender-crimson hue. Denis Garbuzyuk and Nick Los, designers of the studio Mooseberry design group: - In the kitchen, the main accent was a red retro-refrigerator. Proceeding from this, the furniture was chosen neutral colors, so as not to distract attention from it.
Bicycles on the walls
Since the owners of the apartment are crazy about cycling,Then the main question, which they asked themselves from the very beginning - where to hide mountain bikes. But the designers quickly came up with a stylish, practical and bold decision - not to hide the iron horses, but to put them on public display. To do this, they were fixed to the brackets right in the corridor. So, getting into the apartment, the first thing that guests see is two trendy mountain bikes.
Color solution: quiet, but not boring
Vintage whiteboards are a popular and popular theme today.Widely used in the interior. The owners of the apartment also wanted to see such people in their corridor. In order not to "steal" the centimeters of space and not to damage the walls with a skin, we decided to use a more budgetary option - vinyl wallpaper with a texture of the boards. Moreover, they ideally suited the idea of bicycles - not all wallpapers are able to withstand mechanical influences when removing or securing vehicles. It was these "boards" that set the tone of the apartment. Denis Garbuzyuk and Nick Los, the designers of Mooseberry design group: - Opposite the walls with the "boards" we decided to make the sky-blue wall and the doors in it in the same tone. In the living room they left concrete pylons and "supported" them, placing a panel between them, which resembles the wall of an old apartment. The guys really liked the color solution in the corridor-kitchen, so they decided to apply this in the bedroom, diluted with light furniture and bright accents. It was quiet and not boring. The bathroom is the only place where the guys clearly knew in which finish they want to see it, namely: a tile filled with different colors with accent inserts, to such a concept and "attached".
