Creative Group G-DESIGN recently completed a modern studio apartment located in St. Petersburg, Russia. The main objective of the project developers was to create a spacious, bright and sleek interior in an area of ??120 square meters. without the place feeling overloaded with decorating elements. At the request of the customer, a series of unconventional niches were built, with the possibility of lighting in red, green and blue. This means the inhabitants can manipulate the “color” and mood of each room, which is conveniently done through a remote control.
The apartment exudes a minimalist appearance throughout, its modern elegance being emphasized by a variety of textures. As you step inside, a curving hallway with hidden storage space on the sides leads the way to the living room. This open plan social area is chromatically split in three functional zones: lounge space, dining and kitchen. Have a look at this studio apartment in details and let us know if you would feel comfortable in this modern Russian crib.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
