SVOYA Studio recently finished the modern interior of a small 39m2 apartment in Odessa, Ukraine. This apartment is a fine example of how you can pull down a small apartment to make it functional without compromising on style.
As you enter the apartment you are greeted by the living area and a large wood accent wall with hidden lighting and a smaller white wall with plenty of storage space. The wood accent wall in the living room wraps around the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen features minimalist white cabinets, built-in appliances, a gray countertop, and simple wooden floating shelving.
At the front door is a hidden door in the wood accent wall that opens to reveal the bathroom. Floor-to-ceiling rectangular tiles arranged vertically cover the walls, while a wooden vanity with a white countertop fits right next to the shower, which is separated by a glass screen. The dining area is furnished with a black dining table and some chairs. The open bedroom is on a platform. The bed is at eye level with the window and offers a sea view while you rest. The bathroom is clad in plain white tiles and has a shower area in the corner.
The color scheme is neutral with white, gray and natural tones. The zones are subtly yet elegantly divided. For example, the sleeping area is separated by a framed mini-wall made of frosted glass. There are two layers of light – small built-in lights and long black pendant lights to focus on this area or that.
