Russian Home Design: A Menagerie of Modern Hues

This Russian home, designed by architect Andrew Stuben, holds a slightly unusual approach to a contemporary interior. We have become accustomed to finding stark white walls with zingy accents, or perhaps a smooth all-over cream given edge with black base notes, but the palette of this place is of a different mix. The juxtaposed color combinations are a little strange throughout this dwelling, with clashing hues here and there, but these do allow the prevalent architectural details to remain strong. There is neither a cool nor a warm palette in any space, but rather an undulating selection of the two that the eye must dance over to take in each individual feature.
