SVOYA studio has recently completed the modern interior of a small 400 square foot (39m2) apartment in Odessa, Ukraine. This apartment is a nice example of how you can pull off a small dwelling making it functional and without compromising on the style.
Stepping inside the apartment, you’re greeted by the living area and a large wood accent wall with hidden lighting and a smaller white wall with plenty of storage. The wood accent wall in the living room wraps around into the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen features minimalist white cabinets, built-in appliances, a grey countertop, and a simple floating wood shelf.
By the front door, there’s a hidden door located within the wood accent wall, that opens to reveal the bathroom. Floor-to-ceiling rectangular tiles in a vertical arrangement cover the walls, while a wood vanity with a white countertop fits neatly beside the shower that’s separated by a glass screen. The dining space is represented with a black dining table and a couple of chairs. The open bedroom is raised up on a platform, with the bed at eye-level with the window, allowing for sea views while resting. The bathroom is clad with simple white tiles and there’s a shower space in the corner.
The color scheme is neutral, with whites, greys and rich tones of natural wood; the zones are divided subtly yet smartly, for example, the bedroom space is separated with a framed frost glass mini wall. There are two layers of light – small built-in lights and long pendant black ones to focus this or that area.
