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.
She demarcated separate zones
- Private area
- Public area
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
Will be back! With more of Alexandra Fedorova – I think she is very clever.
