This elegant and stylish apartment composition in Kyiv, Ukraine, is carried out by Ater.architects and exhibits all the trendy trades and clever modern design features characteristic for inspired small urban space.
The entwinement of black and white in the color palette, which gives a graphic and exquisite character of contemporary design here, is artistically spiced up by touches in pink and blue. The minimalist expression of the furnishing and the overall decor composition is softened by the organic richens carried out by the oak elements and the abundant textiles – including the smart separation of space provided by the luxurious blue curtains.
And speaking of separation techniques – the designers choose the trendy and very functional, for modern lifestyle dynamics: open floor exposition of the social zones. Tearing down walls of multiple small rooms and corridors, the design team opened the apartment’s living space into one functional, stylish, and full of light sequence.
The charming and fresh kitchen corner offers alternation of trendy, black appliances and cabinets with custom made, light oak cabinetry. But the most expressive feature of this decor space are the black tiles with contrasting fugues in hot pink – quite a vital and stylish touch.
The small dining table arrangement continues the hot pink thread of the design and offers its cute, stylish, and trendy focal center with the suspended cooper lamp – an iconic piece with a vintage touch: the The Flowerpot lamps by &tradition, designed by Verner Panton in 1968.
Cute personal touches were included while composing the decor of all spaces. The symbiosis between the designer’s imagination and the owner’s needs and desires is carried out with great attention towards the detail.
The living room was created for communication, and no TV or multimedia was inserted to disturb this. Instead an inviting sofa in light pink (great contrast with the deep blue curtains) and organic textures create a comfy and pure space. The graphic expression and artistic inspiration of the area is enhanced by the intriguing and iconic lamp – Flos 265 and a monochrome black and white print by artist Yulia Popova.
The working corner was also created according to the preferences and needs of the apartment’s inhabitants. The owner enjoys creating electronic music, so a stylish design solution for a work table provides enough space and freedom for that. Even the photograph above the custom made desck is linked to the artistic passion of the owner – a view of the cult Berlin Techno club Berghain by Michael Belhadi.
