This trendy condominium is situated in Moscow, Russia, and was designed by Korneev Design Workshop. It’s an fascinating mix of the previous and the brand new: the constructing through which it’s located is older, whereas a number of trendy components give it a recent, eclectic look. Witness an aged stone mantel for a former hearth; it’s not a hearth anymore, however it does maintain a bevy of candles that present a pleasing atmosphere to the room once they’re all lighted directly. As if to underscore the fashionable, a flat-display tv is mounted immediately above that cozy nook. Modern lighting, sculptural accents, and tables sit fortunately aspect-by-aspect with upholstered Windsor chairs; a mirrored wall visually expands the whitewashed brick room, whereas its open plan segues the sitting space instantly right into a eating area with ornate chairs that seem like they got here from a heraldic fort.
The open plan continues, nevertheless — beneath hanging industrial lamp fixtures — previous the eating desk, with its immense hammered-metallic bowl filled with apples (one other pink accent) to a kitchen that’s a research in trendy white and chrome steel. Simply previous this central dwelling and entertaining space, a small blue bed room is sequestered behind latticed shutter-type doorways; the “headboard” of the mattress is three painted picket doorways (additionally white) bonded collectively. Covers are spare and white, whereas pink and blue pillows brighten the area and an extended window lends mild to an orchid in a up to date vase. The bedside tables? Previous wooden, curved legs and all; the lamps? Chrome scissors-fashion. Lastly, the bathtub pairs previous and new as nicely: a shining oval vainness sink — with an ornate silver-edged mirror hanging above it. It’s a Moscow mixture of previous and new, of aged and trendy, in a intelligent, open design that works.
