The Russian artist designer, Natalia Akimov completed the interior of this compact chic apartment. It emphasises a bold contrast between dark tones of colour and light. Unpretentious and simplistic, the living environment doesn’t require too much special attention. Despite being a modest place, it is neatly decorated. The designer explains that each accessory, pattern or decoration aims to add a sense of character to the home. As she further expounds, the apartment wasn’t designed to impress. It fits people with simple tastes in interiors.

Comprising a cool modern kitchen, living room, bedroom, hallway and bathroom are all decorated in black and white. The apartment offers enough space for a man/woman who enjoys living on his/her own. Flowery patterned walls break the duo chromatic colour scheme. Simple shabby wooden floors, personal items and soft fabrics contribute to creating a friendly home ambience. Simplicity and harmony go hand in hand, very much reminding us of the genuine Scandinavian design.
