A small one-bedroom apartment in white and beige was made for a young couple. White and beige surfaces became the background for accent blue chairs by Vitra, a custom concrete dining table in burgundy red and stainless steel cantilever shelf. Compactness and functionality are the key points of this interior. Warm lighting, a milky-white Asteria pendant lamp by Umage, and an abundance of textiles make the interior light and cozy. 

Initially, it was an ordinary one-room apartment with a hallway, WC, kitchen, and bedroom. We removed all the walls and created a studio with the bedroom behind the glass wall with a panoramic view on the park. The hallway area was separated from the studio with a large double-sided wardrobe. Thanks to the glass wall, a lot of daylight always gets into the living room and on the desktop. But if necessary, it can be easily curtained if guests have come or if you want to create an atmosphere of privacy in the bedroom.
