Warmth and character exude from this modern apartment interior, which is situated in a new building in the historical center of Kyiv, Ukraine. Designed by Oksana Dolgopiatova, the 84 square meter apartment was renovated for the client’s growing daughter. Since there was no hurry for the completion of the project, time was taken to ensure that the project was completed to the best standard. The interior is constructed with high-quality, environmentally-friendly materials. A light aesthetic helps the apartment to appear larger and airy. Red decor accents and patterned elements prevent the design from falling into the stark minimalist realm, securing a cozy atmosphere.
The clients were used to a higher ceiling than the 30000mm offered in this apartment. Therefore, there was concern regarding the installation of statement ceilings. So, a red living room was established to define the main space only. A black and white accent chair launches a moment of pattern.
Large living room windows combat the saturated red ceiling color. When natural light is decreased, an installation of LED perimeter lights generates a cozy glow. The illumination intensifies the color treatment.
A beige sofa is accessorized with a textural black scatter cushion, which ties in with the monochrome accent chair. A brass side table is teamed with a black counterpart to form a nested arrangement. A cool table lamp adorns the top. See more ideas for unique table lamps.
An elegant archway leads from the entryway to the living room. The same architectural motif was used to fuse two existing balconies with their adjoining rooms. Graceful arches smooth the edges of the awkwardly segmented loggia. A wood trim achieves a chic finish.
A slimline black living room floor lamp provides focused task lighting over one end of the sofa. A brass-colored scatter cushion complements the small side table at the opposite end. Textured artwork makes a surprising yet subtle backdrop.
Opposite the sofa, a unique unit folds into the space in a deep red and natural wood finish.
On top of the unit, a pair of glass vases are filled with floral arrangements to make a colorful focal point.
The modern living room chandelier fits flush against the ceiling to make the ceiling height feel taller.
Behind the living room console unit, there is a wall of frosted glass sliding doors. The doors pull away to give entry into the dining room and kitchen. With the dividing wall dissolved, the three separate areas become one large living space. This layout is great for entertaining family and friends, or simply enjoying a free-flowing space.
Twin dining room pendant lights descend low on the table to build an atmospheric dining experience. A decorative vase and decanters make up a stylish dining table centerpiece.
The kitchen offers a generous amount of storage space in a range of wooden cabinets. A black backsplash and countertop cut darkly through the installation.
From the formal dining spot and kitchen, we look upon an arched entryway into one of the two renovated balcony areas.
The newly connected balcony now extends the main living space. It also serves as much-needed extra wall space in which to install a set of radiators.
In the kitchen diner, ceilings and walls are melded with pale beige plaster. Curved gypsum cornices smooth the transition.
When circumstances in Ukraine made sourcing specific materials difficult, the project was simply paused until the desired supply became available again.
The covered balcony area is also home to a comfortable reading area. A stylish lounge chair and a unique side table sit under natural light from the large windows.
A fluted glass curio cabinet displays a multitude of decorative vases and small sculptures.
Terrazzo tiles color the floor.
A racetrack-shaped rattan entryway bench and a matching black-framed mirror make up a convenient dressing area beside the front door. A modern wall sconce lights the way.
Terrazzo floor tiles lay down a hard-wearing, easy-clean surface to deal with footfall through the door. A black skirting board smartly trims the colorful terrazzo treatment.
The newly installed archways soften the linearity of the original apartment construction. The interior doors of the apartment stand out in natural wood tone, which complements the archway cladding.
The tracks that support the sliding glass doors between living spaces are neatly sunken into the wooden floor treatment.
Built-in wardrobes offer ample storage space in the hallway.
In the bedroom, wood parquet flooring establishes a chic aesthetic. A modern bed design is raised on slender black legs, which leaves much of the floor unobstructed.
Simple black bedroom pendant lights fall above mini bedside tables.
The covered balcony area that is now attached to the bedroom makes a perfect home for a vanity table.
Modern wall sconces are installed on each side of the vanity mirror.
An interior window shares light with the bedroom.
Black-painted cornice frames unique textural wallpaper on the ceiling.
A backlight accentuates natural imperfections in the light beige wall plaster.
In the master bedroom, shades of green shape a fresh and rejuvenating atmosphere. Pale green tiles clad the wet zone around the bathtub. A modern bathroom sink introduces a darker hue.
Unique bathroom vanity lights throw a spotlight on the unusual sink unit.
The shower room decor returns to red tones.
Black bathroom fixtures darkly punctuate the scheme.
Patterned tiles provide visual interest.
