There’s a sophistication to black and white that’s undeniably trendy, as you’ll see in Bergovaya, by the Russian agency Geometrix Design. One other key component is the daring use of a swirling paisley on the ground between the eating space and dwelling space. Not solely does it perform as digital carpet, however it holds a cultured sheen that in flip bounces off storage models in black, and a eating desk in glass. Then, the designers ingeniously soften the black-and-white edges — with vivid colour. An exuberant purple loveseat holds satisfaction of place; blue lighting casts the whole front room in that hue. A paisley-“carpeted” hallway bears a white-and-glass corridor desk and black wall — plus a delicate violet lampshade. And what’s that shade bouncing off a modern eating room chair…however pink?
Violet, blue, and pink — the barest pastel within the final case — serve to melt the condominium’s starkness and make it seem brighter, extra welcoming and heat. And that impact is just heightened with the nice glow of a roaring hearth within the virtually-invisibly-framed hearth. All through, as befits a up to date setting, the look is uncluttered: the kitchen sink is the only equipment seen in an consuming space. But the condo manages to keep away from the sterile look so widespread — and so unlucky — in modern settings; whether or not it’s the gilt-edged old style mirrors or the plump little ottomans right here and there, there’s simply sufficient “playful” on this area to really feel “lived-in” — and a hit as each a up to date design and an inviting house.
