This unique Kiev apartment belongs to a young family of three. It is situated on the 30th floor of one of the city’s tallest buildings. The family wanted a space that, above all, reflects their modern lifestyle. As a result, the apartment was transformed into a functional home that incorporates vibrant bold colors with strong minimalist styling.
Step inside this Kiev apartment and you’ll see a rich green concrete kitchen. The kitchen is encased in a steel frame window partition reminiscent of the art deco style seen in many buildings from the 1920s.
Many apartments these days seem to focus on an open plan layout. However, this kitchen benefits from the partition as smells and noise can be contained quite easily. From the kitchen, you’re immediately greeted by an open plan dining and living room. The space boasts a stunning view of the city and the Dnieper River.
During the day, the apartment beams with a gratifying energy from its rich blue and green walls. In fact, the deep color palette changes the perception of the apartment’s space. The apartment can even feel larger in daylight depending on the shade of natural light.
Classic wood textures and metals are combined wonderfully in the kitchen, with a great sense of style.
True to its high-rise location, the dining room features an elegant Nuvola pendant lamp based on an original design by Mario Bellini dating from 1974. The lamp resembles the shape of a cloud while giving the open plan area a strong statement piece that complements the minimal dining set.
The interplay of light and color is the one aspect of this Kiev apartment the home owners love the most. They especially adore how the light changes the colors of the walls and floors throughout the day or night. The colors can also take on different tones depending on the weather or season of the year.
Notice how the designers chose to paint over the concrete surfaces directly to emphasize the strong textures of the walls.
The playful mix of dining chairs add a spark of interest to the space. The spindle back chair allows light to pass through freely due to its slender wooden legs.
We love the wide sectional sofa. It serves as a comfortable lounge chair when you just want to relax in front of the television. Plus, the sofa doubles up as extra seating for guests in the dining area.
The guest bathroom also uses concrete, like other parts of the house, but mostly as a bench and sink area. At the same time, the industrial style with subway tiles is softened with wood fittings and intricate light fixtures.
Make your way down the corridor, and you’ll find the master bedroom which opens up to beautiful views of the city. The orange and blue wall lamps on either side of the bed add a welcome pop of color. What’s more, they’re a great way to differentiate between his and her bedside tables.
In our opinion, one of the best things about high rise living is being able to take in the sunset hues and city of stars lighting up the night sky.
Additionally, if you’re a fan of geometric home decor, the master bathroom is a great source of inspiration. It serves as the entrance to the dressing room and is a showstopper on its own. The black bathroom tiles scattered with different patterns are reflected on the wide mirror, enhancing the visual appeal.
The bathroom interiors are a great example of how to mix patterns and colors without being overwhelming.
This unique apartment has even more surprises in store. Firstly, the home office is a haven for getting work done, and also provides space for quiet time. Secondly, the room includes a home theater made up of a large sofa that can double as a guest bed.
In addition to a breathtaking view, the corner area features a chic bar area – it’s the perfect spot for that sundown tipple!
All in all, this Kiev apartment is a unique home filled with unpredictability and character. Indeed, each room takes you to a different place. The apartment provides a place for calm with its richly colored walls and, more importantly, urges you to look to the sky, reminding you of your place near the clouds.
