How to find a prefect interior solution for a family of 3 generations? The authors of this project managed to come up with an option that satisfied everyone. The clients were a family including the spouses, their kid and the Grandma. The task was to organize a separate bedroom for each of them and a common open-concept kitchen and living room, where the members of the family would spend time together and receive guests. And if in terms of functionality the task was pretty clear, finding the perfect stylistic and coloristic concept was quite challenging. After long negotiations it was determined to set the choice upon contemporary style within a brown color palette, with nothing redundant or garish. And though dark hues are obviously dominating in this interior, it would be wrong to say that it lacks air or light. Besides, it features many non-standard solutions and unconventional materials that catch and please the eye. So, let’s have a look at the details!
Kitchen / Dining Room/ Living Room
The so-called public part of the flat is quite spacious for the big family and their guests. The kitchen and dining zones are arranged in darker shades, while the living room with a huge comfy sofa as a centerpiece is designed in a contrasting light color palette. However, these rooms still look as a whole thanks to a few linking details. One of them is iconic hand-made tiles from Franco Pesshioli collection that can be found on the lounge wall and kitchen backsplash. And the other is chocolate brown furniture with clear wood grain, which was actively used both in the prep area and the living room. And so that the space didn’t look dull, the authors refreshed it with a few small red accents.
The bedroom of the spouses is designed in a very delicate and quiet color scheme, which is just perfect for a good rest. The geometry of lines and shapes in this room is quite similar to the one we saw in the living room. A neutral wall color, a tall 2-level bed and original ceiling décor from wooden panels going down to the headboard wall – it seems like everything is pretty simple, but at the same the image looks beautiful and very noble.
It went without saying that the bedroom for the eldest member of the family had to be less geometric and softer than the rest of the spaces, and hence this room’s interior was diluted with a few ethnical motifs. The most eye-catchy piece of décor is a big wall mural behind the headboard. It makes the room cozier and more inviting not just for sleeping, but for other activities, such as reading or watching TV. And in general this room is not overloaded with stuff, just like the rest of the spaces: there’s only a big bed, a built-in closet, bedside tables and lamps and a TV-set.
The baby’s room doesn’t feature any dominating bright colors as well. Instead, it’s almost entirely designed in ivory shade, while color accents required for normal mental and psychological development of the kid would be added as the toddler grows older. However, the room is not monochrome: the authors added a trendy “childhood” detail – wallpaper with paradise birds that creates a magical atmosphere of a fairy-tale wood.
Besides, the apartment includes 3 bathrooms: one of them is light and equipped with a shower cabin, the other is darker and features a bathtub, and the third one is meant for guests and houses just a WC and a compact sink. So, the inhabitants are free to choose what they need: vibrant atmosphere of a morning shower or intimate chamber-like comfort of a bathroom.
