If you’re thinking bold yellows, defying blues and statement pieces, you’re definitely on the right track to understand the project we are about to show you. This 80-square meter Moscow flat that started off as a typical example of “stalinka” – a transitional architectural style seen in the early Stalinist era of the former Soviet Union, between 1933 and 1955 – quickly became an inspiring place filled with bright Summer colors and gorgeous contemporary lighting designs. Let’s take a look!
As you’ll quickly realize, almost the whole apartment was built and styled around a deep and very warm color palette, with lots of yellows and different types of blue, from navy to lapis blue. Textures and patterns also played a key role in transforming this outdated flat into a contemporary wonderland.
The bright Summer colors are balanced with printed rug, a simple wooden sideboard, and a few watercolor paintings framing the walls adjacent the deep blue doors that lead to the den and bedroom.
In the open spaced room there is also a dining area that separates the kitchen from the more casual family room. The daring tones of yellow go into the kitchen, creating a balance and harmony throughout the room. The contemporary suspension lamp above the dining table is simple and minimalist enough to fit perfectly with all the colors and patterns happening around it, at the same time it takes a stylish stand.
The den and home office is the only space in the apartment with a muted palette of grays and browns. Woodsy furniture and black and white accessories dot the window sill and blinds, and the minimalist accents extend to the ceiling light, table lamp, and the wire-framed clothes hamper
In both the master bedroom and bathroom we can see a comeback to bold patterns and strong colors. Zig-zag patterns, as well as other geometric and floral prints, fill the bedroom and the washroom. This creates a coherence of styles in the house and definitely brings the Summer feeling indoors!
