Colourful Home | An Energetic Apartment in Moscow

Colourful moscow 01

I like colours. Colours set the mood of a space.

However, the idea of mixing different colours and patterns could be a little bit intimidating to a lot of people. So we ended up playing safe and stick to one of two neutral colours on our walls.

These projects are great examples of how colours can bring life, character and soul to a space. I really admire the eyes of the designers/home owners to have created these amazing colourful homes.

The first one is a small apartment of 42 sqm in Moscow, done by Олейник Оксана. While white and neutral tone are always soothing to look at, who says you can’t use high intensity colours in a small space? This apartment is bursting with colours, and full of energy. Staying in an apartment like this, I bet the winter in Moscow is not really an issue here :)

INT2 Architecture | All-in-one box for small space living in Moscow

The last project to share in this INT2 Architecture series, is a small room of 14 square metres in Moscow.

Despite the size, the designer has creatively designed a multifunctional “box” that holds a compact storage for wardrobe, deep drawers for storage, shelves for small items, bookshelves, and a place to sleep and rest (bed and sofa). Opposite the “box” is a sliding door that functions as a the screen for the projector, and when opened, reveal a full mirror that visually enlarge the tight space.

I could really imagine spending my day in this cozy nook that is not lacking in functions at all!
