Yevhen Zahorodnii completed the design of a contemporary apartment in Minsk, Belarus. Designed for a young couple and their small daughter, the project is the family’s oasis of relaxation in the middle of the bustling city.

“Each interior reflects the idea of harmony, the most important aspect of family life,” the architect said. Both bright and sober, the neutral tones and array of textures make for a calm and cozy home. The elaborate lighting system allows the owners to create different moods throughout the day.

“Wooden flooring and neutral wall colors create a good atmosphere for meditation; the design scheme helps the parents get away from the noise and problems of the big city,” he added. A mirrored coffee table reflects the living room, which features soothing tones of gray.

The child’s area is divided into three parts — a bedroom, playroom and studying area. A small tipi tent is the decorative highlight of this interior. [Photography courtesy of Yevhen Zahorodnii]
