Once inside, drama largely gives way to playfulness. Despite a leaning towards black and white (hence the name of the project), there is actually a great deal of color inside.

The design takes full advantage of these rays by using plenty of light colors, including a soft cashmere gray for the sofa, a light wood flooring, and white walls. In the entryway, a creative wood slat design acts as an open coat closet and creative room divider.A bright and sunny apartment in Saint Petersburg uses both midcentury furniture and Scandinavian details to create a pretty, creat...

yellow-eames-chairDon't think you could fit your family in 50 square meters? These apartments will make you think again.
The living, kitchen, and dining space all have easy communication with one another. In order to make this possible, the design has to both separate and connect the disparate spaces. Patterns and unique design elements manage to do this well. In the kitchen, a half wall made out of wood slats creates more division but still allows light and air to flow through. Similarly, a swirled rug design in the living room contrasts a checked pattern in the entryway, which makes it easier to divide spaces.An apartment in Lviv makes good use of space and design for a modern, open feel.

constellation-artThe colorful, fun designs that characterize so many kid's rooms don't have to be unsophisticated and this apartment proves it.
The first home has the light wood and neutral palette that has certainly been inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian minimalism.

The coziest element is the sleeping nook, which has a soft curtain to pull closed and shut out the day.These itty bitty houses are definitely an inspiration in style and organization.

The loft is divided into two distinct area: one for day and one for night. The open flow of the home, including vaulted ceilings and a ladder for reaching lofted bookshelves, is warm and welcoming.

The pattern choices in this next space are even more outlandish, though in entirely unique ways.
