The interior of this apartment, designed by Antonina S., became the “Best Interior” in the MINIMALISM 2018 Award. The designer divided the functional areas with a glass partition and selected the dining and bedroom furniture in a modern style and a single color palette. Take note of your shopping list.
1. Rectangular table
Rectangular tables are the most popular. When planning the length, keep in mind that on average, one person should have 60-70 cm of dining space. If you often receive guests, take a model with a sliding top or with “wings” on the sides, this will help add 2-3 extra seats.
2. And dining chairs
Upholstered chairs are not only comfortable and comfortable but also create a more solemn atmosphere. When buying, pay attention to the base of the seat: the most durable materials are jute and nylon. For upholstery, choose textiles with a special impregnation that will protect the fabric from drops and splashes from the table.
3. Lamp with plafond-ball
Or rather, a few above the dining table. Pendant lights look best in groups, provide directional light and help create a cozy atmosphere. That’s why designers love them so much.
4. Sconce light
If you want to equip your kitchen or bedroom with a reading nook, you can’t do without a sconce. Pay attention to models on a long base that can be twisted in different directions. You can direct the light the way you want.
5. Bed with a simple headboard
Let there be fewer decorative details in the furniture decoration: choose a bed without legs, with a smooth, straight-shaped headboard. For upholstery, velvet, velour, or micro-velvet is suitable – they are the most pleasant to the touch.
6. Bedside tables
So that the cabinets do not take up much space and do not look bulky, take a model with one drawer and thin legs. If additional storage is not needed, you can put a compact coffee table instead of a cabinet. Another trick that designers use.
Mirrors will help expand the space of the room and add light to the interior. Be symmetrical: Hang a framed mirror on either side of your bed to create a harmonious look.
8. Decorative pillows
A pile of pillows will add coziness and give the bed a look. Take one or two shades as a basis, and you can experiment with a print.
The finishing touch for arranging the sleeping area is a soft carpet. It will “outline” the boundaries, and assemble the bed and nightstands into one composition. And it is very useful in the off-season when there is no heating yet.
