What makes an interior noble?What materials are suitable for long-term investment? The team of the studio "Arch.Predmet" told us about this and many other things, who created a cozy family interior that will not get bored either in five or ten years. The interior inspired by another country is a complicated thing, and making it look organically in Russian realities is even more difficult ... The masters from the Arkh.Predmet design studio know exactly how to do this, and today they share their experience of transforming an ordinary three-room apartment into a real English interior, which, like a good cognac, only gets better over the years.

The main wish of the customers was to create a timeless interior. This was achieved with the help of high-quality classical decoration, while the "filling" of the premises - textiles and accessories - was chosen so that it can be changed depending on the mood. The apartment is in a new building, thereforethere was no need for a radical redevelopment. Customers were offered several options for planning solutions, one of which was almost immediately approved. As a result, the kitchen was combined with, but separated from the living room - this was important for the owners. The main bedroom was connected to the dressing room, opposite the nursery. A laundry was organized in the guest bathroom. The resulting interior is difficult to attribute toA certain style. As a source of inspiration, designers from the studio "Arch.Predmet" chose England and created eclecticism with an English accent. The project used classical techniques: Versailles oak parquet, cornices, moldings and high plinth, but with laconic profiles without any decoration. The living room turned out really veryClassical: symmetrical and noble. As the primary colors were selected gray, gold and bronze. The sofas of classical forms here coexist with modern tables and conceptual paintings. Two large shelves have become a repository for books, thereby adding a living room function to the home library. In the bedroom, the color scheme turned out a little morelight and warm - what you need for the mood for rest. - the most necessary, but a lot of decor: from plants in large tubs to a decorative screen made to order. The designers did not forget about the bed: it was decorated with a set and a soft fluffy blanket. Color density of walls in all roomsthe same, however, the shade changes: olive is used in the living room, in the dining room it responds in the countertop and apron, and on the walls we see a warmer, brown tone. For the bedroom, we chose a paint with a light purple tint. When the work just started, the client insisted on lighter gradations, and the designers - on darker ones. As a result, a compromise was reached. The choice of stone was very important for the customer. Carefully selected bathroom slabs made it possible to build the interior in a discreet but complex, dusty color scheme. The shower room, located opposite the entrance, was finished with a beautiful gray-green stone slab, which is also found on the countertop.
