This modern apartment in Kiev is inside a 19th-century building and it’s shimmering with trendy retro lighting designs. Alena Makagon, Alexandr Ivasiv and Artem Zavarzin worked together on this interior design project in Kiev, Ukraine.
This modern apartment was a tribute to the decorative facade of the 19th-century building, as it is possible to see through the architecture and contemporary design of this unique apartment. The interior designers‘ fingerprint is present in every single detail of this project, specifically in the sculptural elements that were added in the ceilings and walls.
The design project also reflects the perfect combination of old and new, making this a dazzling and stunning residence. “Our idea was to keep the interior space simple in shapes and put an emphasis on classical white walls that contrast with a modern, predominantly dark furniture and floor.”
“In the dining room area, a mid-century suspension lamp by DelightFULL anchors the dining table and highlights the room’s sense of modernity and usage of space. ”
Making way to the living room, it is easy to understand how the whole space stands inside a 19th-century building, with tall and bright white walls going multiple feet high towards a white embroidered ceiling. These classic white walls make a stunning contrast to the contemporary furniture and the dark wooden flooring. In the dining room area, a mid-century suspension lamp by DelightFULL anchors the dining table and highlights the room’s sense of modernity and usage of space.
Going into the master bedroom, what promptly pops up are the colorful built-in closets located right in the middle of the room, thus creating two main spaces: the bed and the dressing area. A nice soft glow comes out of the hidden LED lights above the closet,
which gives the room the perfect cozy ambiance. Cleverly hidden on the side of the closet there’s a small area with a quaint desk that is ideal for a nice afternoon working.
There is also a nursery, where colorful artwork adorns the walls in the most beautiful way, with a geometric rug that adds playfulness and a soft surface where the kids can play freely. The two bathrooms are covered with colors and key elements that create focal points.
In one of the bathrooms, there is a vanity with sleek grey cabinetry and a tall mirror that makes space feel wider. There is a luxurious suspension lamp, also by DelightFULL, in black and golden finishes that complete the look and makes the bathroom feel as sophisticated as the other stunning rooms in the house.
