A young woman, voguish, energetic, who loves to surprise, came to our office. Her principal wish was to have a stylish, state-of-the-art, and unfussy interior with elements of art deco. First, we suggested making an intriguing zoning: we integrated the parlour, the dining room and the kitchen, in addition having made the place free of square corners. This gave an opportunity to visually ‘break’ the conventional dimensions and expand the space.
Entrance to the private area is not obvious to guests: the door is a part of decorative faceted glass panels, behind which there is a residential unit including a bedroom, a spacious clothes room, and a private bathroom. We used this option in the lobby zone too: the hinged cabinet doors and the entrance to the guest bathroom are hidden in the wall.
Between the kitchen zone and the living room, there has been a column. We coated it with the same panels that the other black glazed walls are coated. Also, we worked out a system of shelves, that embrace the column along its perimeter and join these 2 zones together, one of those shelves having a built-in bio-fireplace and another one left out to the parlour as a bar counter.
The strong contrast of white and black is warmed-up with soft finishing materials and aesthetics of art deco elements. The opportunity to set lighting scenarios determines the mood of the interior – from bright and energetic to dimmed and comfortable. Soft leather of the trimmings of furniture, velvet curtains offer a contrast to the glass panels on the walls, the facets of which making the surface dynamic.
The main schtick of the interior is the seamless floor, under the glossy surface of which there is an exquisite floral pattern that welcomes guests at the entrance of the apartment and leads to the sitting area. This one-of-a-kind option appears for a dominant emphasis of the interior, filling out the space and thinning the strict colour combination; at the same time, the floor due to its glossy surface visually increases the room height that was not satisfactory before. In the parlour, there is a cosy nook for relaxation: with a bio-fireplace, a gorgeous armchair that is highlighted in colour on purpose and thus becoming another art object, a big floor soft-lighting lamp – all this welcome to have rest or have a relaxed gathering of friends.
The bedroom is designed in black-lead gray that soothes and makes the room incredibly cosy.
Tiles with a scarcely perceptible floral pattern and a framed mirror confer elegance to the bathroom without making it heavy because of extra details.
The guest bathroom will surprise you with the challenging design: the walls, the floor, and even the ceiling are made in deep black and decorated with silver mosaics. Soft lighting along the perimeter of the room provides an intimate atmosphere in here.
