Active and enthusiastic, loving to surprise and be surprised – such description of their customers was given by the authors of the project. As a result, an eclectic interior with a certain influence of English style has perfectly demonstrated the character and preferences of this young married couple passionate about travelling and always open to new experiences. Moreover, the specifics of initial space contributed to implementation of such a solution to its best: the apartment was located in Aerobus Residential Complex, on one of its last floors. A ten meter floor-to-ceiling window commanded a fantastic view of Moscow, and due to the open plan it was possible to arrange a spacious studio type living room combined with a hall. As a result, one can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city just standing in the doorway.
The designers were based on ‘beautiful and comfortable’ principle. A classic noble simplicity is expressed in wide cornices, high floor moldings and doors visually stretching the proportion of the rooms. Simple geometry of indoor space creates the feeling of peace and settled life, the elements of English style – the one of comfort and homeyness.
Heavy grey was chosen as the basic color for the space livened up with brighter accent colors, such as sky blue and terracotta. By the way, floor-to-ceiling windows which finally were integrated into the interior so successfully were a source of trouble for the designers during their work. Aluminum window profile looked unpleasant. As a result, the frames were hidden behind the oak veneer casings which became an elegant framing of the city view and, at the same time, perfectly match up with built in custom wooden furniture. Practically all items of standalone furniture act as basic decorative accents. Among them are English sofas, table trunks in the Colonial style, numerous ethnic details and Victorian replicas… In general, interior furnishing is represented by diverse postmodern collection of designer items which makes the interior unique and expresses striking individuality of clients.
