Dan Vakhramieiev, creative director at FILD, designed and developed an inviting studio apartment in Kiev, Ukraine. The project is a conversion of a two-room loft from a pre-revolutionary building erected in 191, with original old moldings in the entryway. Having a total surface of 58,5 square meters, the crib features an open plan kitchen and bedroom, a separated dressing room and bathroom.
Lighting was given special attention, in order to visually divide the functional zones: kitchen, dining space and bedroom. Metal fixtures in the form of a tube were installed on the ceiling and thin fluorescent lamps can be found over the kitchen work area and in the bathroom. Heavy blackout curtains made ??of gray fabric contrast the plywood flooring. All in all, the open studio apartment has an inviting feel, its unconventional layout making it perfect for a young couple. How do you find it?

If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
