Compact, functional, and visually appealing. These qualities altogether define one unique apartment in Kiev. Brown and black is the perfect color combination of this modern interior by MARTINarchitects, which is spread throughout the entire 484 square feet (45 square-meter) space. Some hints of grey add class and sophistication to the overall theme. Lines are prominent in the home, from the exquisite pieces of furniture to lighting fixtures, to the bedroom’s wall structure.
The bedroom is what creates a striking statement as it holds the right balance of transparency and privacy. Made of a glass enclosure, it elicits an open layout which allows light to pass through. The addition of curtains effectively conceal the room while decorating the space. Grey sheets are elegantly draped over the bed that has a lovely rustic headboard with a few lamps on top. The bedside tables on either side are beautifully mismatched yet appears so perfect in the same room.
The dining area features a lustrous wood table with mismatched chairs (plus a stool) in brilliant black and brown colors. There’s no need for a rug, for the elements of nature unify the objects as one. Two strings dangle the lights gracefully while framed artwork on one side, and a huge round mirror on the other wall creates a beautiful effect. Potted plants in different sizes add a touch of green and life to the room.
Brick walls alone are enough to instantly transform a room. The kitchen’s black-colored bricks contrasting the light wood floors and complementing shiny stainless accents are utterly stunning! Built-in appliances and ducts seamlessly blend in and form part of the charming design. This area and the whole apartment appears a lot larger than it is, having adapted the contemporary open floor plan.
The bathroom holds the same glass partition in its shower area. Tiles are clean and white, as well as the sink surface and modern wall-hung toilet bowl, while the bath fixtures arrive in black. Like in the bedroom and dining room, the addition of a framed painting makes a difference in sprucing up the theme.
