Want to Know How to Elegantly Decorate a Small Apartment?

I am back in Moscow and again with the master of decorating – Alexandra Fedorova.

This designer seems to have found the answer to the challenging question how to decorate a small apartment with style and elegance.

This Moscow-based interior designer did this apartment in downtown Moscow recently.

The public area

This is from the hallway into the open planned kitchen, dining and living room area. The cleverly designed modern kitchen includes a column where appliances and kitchen things are kept out of sight. In addition, it also contains the very important (particularly in small spaces) central island that operates as a breakfast nook, visually separating the kitchen from the living room and dining area.

The private area

This consists of two bedrooms, a kids room, study and master bedroom.

Decorating materials – essential ingredients

This is where Feorava shines in my opinion.

  • The kitchen walls are decorated with grey marble, resembling polished concrete
  • In addition, marble is also used on the kitchen and hallway floors – in a sand colour
  • The living room floor is in soft grey – for “tranquillity” according to Fedorava
  • To create a focal point in the living room area, a wall has been decorated using handmade burnished copper panels
  • Also, the use of modern furniture adds to the overall feel of the space
  • The bespoke canary yellow chair in the living room and the plush plum chair in the master bedroom are all focal and talking points
  • Dashes of colour inject interest to what could have been a fairly bland space
  • Dark wooden panelling behind the beds adds both texture and cosiness
  • Views of downtown Moscow shine through
