Interior designer Lera Katasonova describes her apartment design for a client in Kiev “as a comfortable apartment with everything you need for work and leisure at your fingertips.”

She adds, “When dealing with private interiors it is important to catch the persons’ mood, understand their character, lifestyle, world-looking and just go with the flow of formations. Thus it is impossible to repeat the same design story because every human is unique.”

The design solutions and techniques applied on this project include, zoning, “Zoning of the bathroom in the bedroom is performed with the help of a frosted glass block. This technique makes the space more open and alive.”

Redesigning, “Particular attention is paid to redesigning. We set a goal to maximize free space and transform the stuffed two-bedroom apartment in a single open space.”

Lighting, “The ceiling cloth has no chandeliers. The illumination is formed through reflection from the white surfaces. The direc-tional zoned lighting in the entrance and dining blocks creates a beautiful play of light in tandem with the reflected halos.”

And functionality, “The kitchen area seems to look very concise and simple. However, this effect was quite difficult to achieve. All appliances such as a refrigerator, a freezer, a dishwasher, a cooker, an oven, a bar and niches for utensils are integrated with the wall and hidden. We filled the space functionally and unloaded it visually.”
