Inspiring Interior

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a small space with a lot of style.  Located in Kiev, this compact (484 square feet) apartment was tastefully designed by MARTIN Architects.  The owners intended to use this apartment as a rental so it needed to have universal appeal to attract potential renters.

Despite not being a very large space, the abundance of natural light and open layout makes this apartment feel much larger then it actually is.  The bedroom is partitioned off from the rest of the apartment by a glass wall allowing natural light from the bedroom window to brighten up the entire apartment.

The colour palette is kept neutral with greys, blacks and brown but a aqua green accent colour has been incorporated throughout the apartment upping the style factor on this gorgeous space.

My favourite part of this apartment though is the kitchen.  The exposed brick wall was painted black to contrast with the light floors – it’s positively swoon worthy!

Restoring a historic building requires a lot of thoughtful consideration, a well trained eye and a talent for creating a modern space while still respecting the building’s history and bones.  Today’s Inspiring Interior is a historic building located in Ghent, Belgium that was carefully restored in 2013 by Hans Verstuyft Architects.  This stunning 19th building has been transformed into a spacious and modern home with stong historic details.  The contrast of the timber flooring and minimalist esthetic against the high ornately carved ceiling is memorable, unique and breathtaking.  Hans Verstuyft Architects have done an incredible job on this project and I look forward to seeing what other projects they develop in the future. Here are some of my favourite shots from the Ghent project:

Inspiring Interior

Judging from the amount of Inspiring Interiors blog posts that I have done on Swedish designs lately, it would be safe to say that I have a deep love for Swedish interiors. Today’s post is no exception.

Located in Stockholm, this stylish one bedroom flat is a minimalist interior designer’s dream.  The wood furniture highlights the beauty of the herringbone wood floor and the bright white kitchen is chic yet unfussy.  The dining nook is an ideal spot to host friends while the little balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy the weather.  Overall, what this apartment lacks in size more then makes up for it in design.

Normally, when I hear the words “Italian villa” I think of a rustic and charming home, but today’s Inspiring Interior challenges that vision in the best way possible.  Located in the Tuscan country between Florence and Arezzo, this villa is breathtaking in its simplicity. Designed by Rachele Biancalani Studio with Matteo Bonechi technician, this villa defies traditional ideas of what a villa is supposed to look like and delivers a simple and sophisticated home. Exposed beams and large arched windows perfectly compliment the warm natural tones of the home along with the clean white accents.  I love it!  Here are some of my favourite pics of this spectacular home:
