The modern style of apartment design presupposes clarity of forms and straightforward lines, the premises should not be overloaded with accessories, but at the same time there is no feeling of emptiness of space. Professional designers who are engaged in the decoration of both small premises and spacious apartments manage to combine these requirements. Over the past few years, specialists have developed several main areas of modern design, which allows you to create attractive interiors using high-quality environmentally friendly materials: natural and artificial stone, wood and veneered MDF, fabrics and glass.
The company “OlympStroyService” received an order for modern interior design in an apartment with an area of 155.2 square meters, located in the Moscow residential complex “Sadovye Kvartaly”. The residential complex is located practically in the center of Moscow, 3 kilometers from the Kremlin. The house being renovated is one of the club houses located in 5 blocks of the new buildings of Khamovniki. The multi-storey building has a spacious courtyard with lawns and flower beds, nearby there is a park area with a large artificial lake and pedestrian walkways, a bend of the Moskva River, several shopping and entertainment complexes with cafes, restaurants and shops. Transport accessibility is provided by a modern transport interchange, but at the same time, the houses of the residential complex are far from the highway, so residents do not suffer from traffic noise.
Elena Anikina was involved in the development of a design project for a four-room apartment for a family of 3 people. She is a talented leading designer of OlympStroyService, well known as the author of non-standard solutions for the design of private houses and apartments of various sizes. All work was carried out by experienced specialists of the company, demonstrating coordination of actions and a creative approach to solving the assigned tasks.
The design began with the elaboration of the layout of the apartment based on the architectural project of the developer. Some changes were made to it, suggesting redevelopment allowed by the existing rules, SNiP and GOST. The designer proposed to visually divide the apartment into a private part and a place where you can receive guests. This became possible due to the fact that the entrance hall and the adjoining corridor are located practically in the middle of the apartment. On one side of the entrance, a living room was arranged, combining it with a kitchen and a dining room, on the other there were bedrooms.
The basic color base consists of three tones: white, gray and brown. They are in harmony with each other and correspond to the chosen style. High ceilings (3.5 meters) made it possible to make suspended structures made of plasterboard, which not only fit the modern environment, but also serve as an excellent “camouflage” for the ducted air conditioning system – all pipes are hidden in the ceiling space, and the grilles covering the air ducts are excellent fit into modern design. The units directly responsible for the operation of the system are located in the dressing rooms – they were hidden behind ceiling structures with increased sound insulation. This virtually eliminates the sound of air conditioners operating. The suspended ceilings are equipped with LED spotlights, suspended chandeliers and profile structures.
The entrance hall (hall) was done in gray tones. The right accents helped to place 2 small round poufs (black and white and black) and an original mirror, starting almost from the floor and resting with the upper edge against the ceiling, due to which the hall looked more spacious and lighter. Zigzag stripes on the mirror echo those on one of the ottomans. A laconic black shelf complements the interior design of this room.
In the corridor, on the opposite wall of the entrance, there are several doors leading to the dressing room (through it to the bathroom with shower) and the guest room. The guest bedroom is designed in white. Accents are set with wood wall decoration and accessories. Neutral colors and shades are fully consistent with the modern style chosen for the overall design of the apartment. Comfortable and practical furniture and accessories create a comfortable atmosphere. The room has a size of 13.90 square meters.
In the guest bathroom there is a wall-hung toilet (the cistern is built into the wall) with a compact hygienic shower, in the niche there is a shower cabin equipped with a drain, closed with a glass door. Plumbing from the Spanish company Noken, which supplies the market with high-quality equipment of modern design. Large-format glossy tiles were used for wall and floor decoration, perfectly imitating natural black and white marble.
To the left of the entrance, on the same side, there is another dressing room for outerwear (the door to it opens directly from the hallway), and behind it is a “laundry room”. Further there is a spacious living room combined with a dining room and kitchen. The total area of this room is 50.4 square meters. The plastered white walls are in harmony with the light gray planks of the solid wood flooring. The main wall is finished with L’Antic colonial natural slate from Porcelanosa Group, its large format emphasizing the natural origin of the material.
The equipment of the German brand Nolte, designed in black and white colors, was chosen for the kitchen. The dining area with a table was highlighted with Led Monster pendant lights.
The seating area has a corner sofa and round tables, and a large TV monitor completes the design. Floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows give the room a special appeal. All curtains in the apartment are provided by Ekaterina Mitryaeva’s workshop: white light tulle is complemented by dense brown curtains.
To the right of the hall is the “master’s part”. The master bedroom is 21.7 square meters and is made in brown tones of natural wood. The flooring is made of solid oak planks. The suspended ceiling and walls are finished with decorative plaster from the Saint-Marco brand. There is not much furniture, but all of it is from the famous Italian company Poliform. In addition to a double bed with a soft headboard in gray-brown tones of a geometric pattern, there are 2 bedside tables, an armchair, a chest of drawers and a small table. The finishing touch is sconces and lamps from the O-svet company. One of the veneer doors leads to a spacious dressing room. A glazed balcony adjoins the bedroom.
Opposite there is a 15-square children’s room with its own dressing room. Finishing in a common color scheme for living, comfortable furniture, sports corner with a Swedish wall.
In the same part of the apartment, the master bathroom is made in brown colors, ranging from light to chocolate. Solid wooden furniture, classic rectangular mirror, snow-white Spanish plumbing. Dark walls and light floors are finished with Italian ceramic tiles Impronta ceramiche imitating marble.
