Csorba Anita is an interior designer from Budapest whose original approach to modern design caught our attention. We recently received some photos of one of her projects, a contemporary apartment filled with color and inspiring decors. With a total surface of 100 square meters, this dynamic crib is centered around an open plan living and dining area which takes over more than half of the apartment’s living space.
The entire project was especially designed by Anita Csorba for a young couple. Some of the unique pieces in the scheme include a custom made TV wall, stair railing, custom entrance hanger and an oval dining table. The unusual tree-shaped entrance hanger can be used as a room divider, as well as a coat rack in the winter. The tree shaped railing goes up to the first floor and is creatively combined with bookshelves. In the bedroom, there is a square panel custom bed flanked by Ikea bedside lamps.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
