This apartment in the heart of Kyiv has become a real oasis for its owners. They lived in the suburbs for a long time, but decided to move to the city and chose one of the best residential complexes in Kyiv.
The owners of the apartment are a married couple with adult children who live separately. But it was important for them to create a large common space where all family members could gather together.
The color scheme was chosen calm and based on nuances – complex shades of gray, beige and brown tones, shaded by brass and bronze details. The overall style is restrained, minimalist, but great attention is paid to the materials and textures – natural wood, textured Zoffany wallpapers, Fioranesse porcelain stoneware, Casamance textiles.
The customers were completely satisfied with the layout of the premises from the developer, so we almost did not make any changes, only slightly adjusted the rooms to accommodate all the necessary storage systems.
The kitchen-living room has an open plan and is spacious enough for all family members to gather for family dinners. The living room is decorated with a painting by the Ukrainian artist V.Podlevsky “White Trees”, which symbolically emphasizes the importance of family roots.
The master bedroom is a place of peace and comfort. The central place is occupied by a non-standard bed measuring 230×250 cm, which was designed and made specifically for this interior. The walls are decorated with textile wallpapers with a complex relief texture from Zoffany. Large mirror panels visually expand the space and add more air.
The guest room is small, but still managed to accommodate everything you need – a large wardrobe, a sofa bed and a chest of drawers, which was designed individually for this interior. The room is decorated with a wall painting with an image of a willow by the masters of DecorSolutions studio.
Both bathrooms were decorated with tiles from the Kintsugi collection by Fioranesse. The philosophical basis of kintsugi art lies first of all in the fact that cracks and breaks are an integral part of the object’s history and therefore do not deserve to be forgotten and masked. This idea resonates strongly with the current life in Ukraine and reminds us of the importance of immaterial things.
Designer Lisa Pyshneva tells that the design and implementation of this interior took place during the war, which was accompanied by difficulties associated with the supply of materials, delays in the work of builders and contractors due to power outages and shelling. She was forced to leave the country, so she partially led this project remotely.
“But thanks to the coordinated work of the whole team, we still managed to bring this project to the finish line. And of course, we are infinitely grateful to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the opportunity to work and implement our ideas,” she says.
This interior is not only a great example of modern design, but also a symbol of hope and confidence in the future. It shows that even in the most difficult times, you can create beautiful and cozy spaces that fill life with meaning.
