Often, we marvel at stunning minimalist interiors that have been carefully and meticulously crafted by top-notch designers using world-class decor and design. These homes might amaze you with their sleek sophistication and elegance, but they come with a heavy price tag as well. Located in Moscow, this striking all-white renovated apartment was crafted by Vladimir Malashonok, keeping in mind not just aesthetics but also economics! The ingenious Russian designer had to work on a pretty tight budget, and so he used laminated panels, tiles and gypsum to craft a home that looks a lot more luxurious and affluent than it ever deserved to.
The dramatic use of contrasting hues and textures is pretty obvious the moment you step into the house. The pristine white backdrop is accentuated by the use of stylish decor in matching white, which enhances the entire color scheme. Laminated surfaces in dark tones offer the necessary contrast and yet manage to fit in perfectly with the minimal approach. An open-plan living area leads to the bedroom, which uses fabric accents in the color of the laminate to paint a coherent picture.
Use of the PH Artichoke pendant above the dining area takes you by surprise and also shows you how easily the Mid-Century Modern creations from several decades ago still look relevant in a cutting-edge, modern environment. Refined and sensible, it is a fascinating renovation that gets the job done without breaking the bank!
The renovated space includes the hall, guest lavatory, combined kitchen/living room/dining room, the cabinet, the master bedroom with a bathroom and a gym. Designed to serve a family of two, it offers a stylish yet tranquil retreat.
