Maison de Charme Interior Design Kiev, Ukraine - Elena Dobrovolska
  • Type: Interior Design
  • Style: Contemporary

The house is designed to avoid excessive details and created an elegant, light, and modern design with an open space with high ceilings and large square area that allowed for playing with scale, proportions, and geometry. The first thing that draws attention in the living room are the ceilings, which are high enough to accommodate an impressive fireplace. To add character to the space, which is designed in soft colors, the architects opted for complex color shades when choosing textiles, furniture, and lighting. This is how the interior acquired greyish blue, soft mint, deep blue, tobacco, baked milk, and cinnamon shades.

During the day, the room bathes in sunlight that comes in through huge windows, and at night the light comes from Murano glass lamps on long suspensions. The important detail of style is sliding panels between the kitchen and the dining room, manufactured by the studio’s design. They are glass on the one side and covered with colorful copper petals on the other. Delicate decorative work gives classic materials new meaning and modern delicacy. The swimming pool area is lit with lamps by Frank Gehry. A monumental panel with tortoises that symbolize wisdom and prosperity serves an additional symbolic element of design.

To make the interior look less dry, it was filled with design objects with distinctive character. Exquisite furniture from Giorgetti is accompanied by sculptural objects by Riva1920, a company that turns natural wood into masterpieces. Checkered rug by Vivienne Westwood made for The Rug Company incorporates all color shades used in the interior. All design details in the house are in harmony and reflect the main theme, which is of design beyond time that is never out of fashion.
