In one of our previous posts we gave you a few useful tips on distinguishing a good interior designer from an amateur. One of the most important advices was to make your choice based on the references of your neighbors or friends, who had their interiors created by some specific author. This project was born right this way. The hostess of our today’s apartment visited her school friend and really appreciated the interior of her apartment. Her impressions were so strong that she decided to contact the author of that interior and ask her to decorate her living space. Read More

Looking for fun, innovative and yet classy ways to add color to your home without altering its modern vibe drastically? Then you might want to take a look at the gorgeous Apartment Capela in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The initial plan of Eugene and Irene, the hosts of this studio apartment, was to find a flat in the heart of St. Petersburg with a quiet backyard for themselves, but over time they started to rent it out.

It should seem that an apartment designed in Scandinavian style can hardly surprise anyone. It’s widely popular among designers, decorators and common people, and finding furniture in this style is not a problem at all. However, skeptics keep saying that white walls are dull, and apartments of most European countries are not fit for Scandinavian style at all: they have small windows, lack sunlight, and hence their interiors remind more of hospital wards. The authors of the project we’d like to show you in this post faced this challenge and designed an apartment in Scandinavian style with non-white walls and panoramic windows – an exemplary model indeed!

Architect Pierre Saalburg created an architectural agency in 2003 called LSL Architects. This Paris location was the project that caught my attention. The interiors are beautifully planned out with attention to individual pieces. He says his work is not minimal and I agree with his stamen there.

Creating an interior for a person who lives in the world of fashion and is well-versed in it is a complicated and challenging, yet very interesting task. Have you ever seen how fashion experts live? Let’s take a sneak peek!
The author of this project was charged with the responsibility of creating a contemporary and trendy interior that would be equally good for working from home and having a good rest. And the hostess of the apartment, a professional fashion stylist and image-maker, prepared loads of ideas in the form of numerous clippings from fashion and interior design magazines. So, from the very beginning it was clear that the final interior was supposed to be light, lively and tastefully furnished.
The total area of this 2-room flat is just 68 square meters and its shape is irregular: one of the walls is angled at 45 degrees. This little nuisance was however skillfully turned into a benefit of the space: the kitchen was arranged diagonally. By the way, the kitchen-dining room can be easily separated from the lounge with a partition anytime the hosts need one more isolated room.
This three-room apartment with the total area of 78 square meters found a new owner just a year ago. The lady hired a team of qualified architects and set them a task of creating a cozy light apartment with an atmosphere encouraging for good rest after a long working day, but not too refined.
