Scandinavian interiors can amaze with their contrasts.

Great home!
The interiors of this Swiss chalet Lucine look modern and sophisticated thanks to the strict dark elements of the decoration, which together with the wooden base of the house create beautiful contrasts.

Black outside, white inside – this recipe works great in this cozy wooden cottage, where one family from Sweden found its harmony.

The history of this house on the Costa Brava, Spain, began in the 50s of last century, but for the last 40 years, it has not seen any repair. The owner Eugene, interior designer, renovate the interior spaces with great attention to detail and lovingly revived the territory. Now nothing tells about the former despair. In the bright rooms of the house, retro details and rustic style are beautifully combined together, there are a lot of wood and natural fabrics. We just love the wonderful staircase with white and blue tiles and a spacious kitchen. Not to mention the well-groomed backyard. This house has really got a new bright life!
This Swedish apartment is like a Swiss Army knife – many functions fit in one small space. 30 sqm did not become an obstacle for designers to place a living area, a bed, a small kitchen and even a dining table. Very compact home, which would be ideal for a student or a bachelor!
The owners of this Californian home in California has a very interesting profession – they are winemakers, and their dwelling is part of an old winery. Over time, the house fell into decay and it had to be preserved. It was decided to make the house more modern without significant alterations. It turned out to be minimalist and stylish. We especially liked the kitchen with a panoramic window, the area by the fireplace and the bathroom on the second floor. It’s so easy and elegant, a house with a history can really find a second fascinating life!
This spacious apartment on the 28th floor of one of the Kyiv skyscrapers was designed for a woman who lives alone, so the space was not divided strictly into the rooms but left open with a lot of air. The natural wood and concrete were decided to combine with bright and gentle tones, unusual furniture and accessories. One of the wishes of the client was to create a zone for practicing yoga, this place was decorated with a small garden, which looks interesting in contrast to the panoramic windows and views of the bustling metropolis. Amazing home, where space and freedom are felt as much as incredible energy!
