Got an area of around 80 m² and want to create a comfy, but stylish nest? This is how
This apartment was designed by Cult of Design – a design studio based in Ukraine. These clever people offer the whole spectrum of interior design services: apartments, houses and public spaces.
This particular apartment caught my eye on my travels in cyber space as it lightweight, modern and quiet.
A little nesting place
The family apartment is in one of the high-rise buildings in the city of Khmelnitsky – south west of Kiev in Ukraine. (Yes fellow decorators of note – you must do a bit of traveling to search for gems!)
Lighting is so important
I am not particularly mad about the black half-moon lighting in the sitting area – but each to their own taste. I find it a bit harsh and out of keeping. The lighting above the kitchen counter is more to my taste.
The back lighting in the glass cabinet and alongside the beams in the kitchen area is great and the overall use of natural lighting throughout the home is innovative and stylish.
Tone and ambiance
Your home your taste – but take note of the subtle greys along with the natural wood, the zig-zag tiles, and the plush carpet. This all adds to a depth of design and makes for an interesting and restful look.
Quality shines through
Nothing is simple in this home. By emphasizing the walls and ceilings throughout the small apartment there is a sense of high quality. If you can afford to have dry walls jutting out, false ceilings with back lighting, and alcoves added to a room, you will immediately upgrade the finishing and hence get a very upmarket stylish look.
Use of bright paint, modular and functional shelving units and wall paper – a fun place for a child
Blackboards, climbing ladders and block splashes of colour have creatively been used in this small child’s small room. It is tastefully, yet functionally designed to offer maximum stimulation.
Luxury and high design in the bathroom
Note the continuation of the grey tones and the zig-zag tiling from floor to ceiling. A special place to nest a while.
