Luxury living

    Oksana Salberg-Vachnadze from the prestigious O2 Design Moscow Studio was approached by a married couple, with a teenage daughter, to decorate their apartment in a prestigious residential complex in Moscow, near the Sokolniki Park. Here, Inex takes you on a guided tour of the residence.

    The homeowners sought an interior that featured a modern and respectable style with a monochrome palette and a splash of colour. By following this brief, the designer managed to bring this interior – with its striking colour palette, stylish furniture and impressive contemporary artwork – to life.

    This is where the luxurious and striking furniture, upholstery, lighting and accessories from COVET HOUSE – with brands such as BOCA DO LOBO, DELIGHTFULL, BRABBU, KOKET, MAISON VALENTINA, CIRCU, LUXXU, ESSENTIAL HOME, RUG’SOCIETY, PULLCAST and FOOGO – struck gold and perfectly complemented every detail of the overall aesthetic and architecture of the apartment.

    A Neoclassical style and a white colour palette served as the starting point of this interior. White cornice mouldings create a beautiful contrast with the colourful modern furniture and add a particular cultural context.

    The apartment’s logical and straightforward floorplan consists of three rooms; one large living room and a space that combines the kitchen and dining room, as well as two bedrooms – one master and the child’s room.

    The living area

    In the living room, the colour scheme features bright accents against a white background. The stylish rug – with its stone-inspired print – links the apartment’s furniture; the sofa, a bright yellow armchair and the coffee table – with an openwork metal base and tempered smoked glass resting on the polished stainless-steel base. This refined yet straightforward piece from BOCA DO LOBO is evocative of a fine jewellery-like piece and blends a particular delicacy with its strong contrasting character.

    Also with the retro appeal is the Duke floor lamp from DELIGHTFUL. This standing lamp pays tribute to Jazz Musician Duke Ellington with its retro styling – its brass arms and white shades drape on the sides to shine a light on this refined interior.

    The dining area

    Next to the living area, is the equally masterful dining room. A perfect symbiosis of styles and colours, the single space is divided into two areas by a console with Art Deco-themed table lamps. Here, an unusual chandelier, contemporary artwork and velvet curtains create an atmosphere of aristocratic chic.

    The Botti chandelier is the perfect Mid-Century lighting design, inspired by the American trumpet player as a tribute to jazz music. With a structure handmade in brass and boasting a sophisticated gold-plated finish, this modern ceiling light showcases the high-quality craftsmanship – a perfect match for the Art Deco table lamps.

    Wall and ceiling mouldings and herringbone parquet flooring are inspired by the Paris impressions. A Venetian mirror and contemporary console are one of the examples of how effortlessly objects coexist in this interior. The handmade mirror is produced in a rare, almost lost technique of mirror carving. This piece is unique and can be passed down to the next generations.

    The Sinuous Patina Console from BOCA DO LOBO creates a luxurious environment. Sinuous lines draw the elegant character of this console. With a handcrafted structure in mahogany, a high-gloss black lacquer finish and top coated in polished brass, this is the perfect final touch to the dining room.

    A convenient ergonomic kitchen with an island is stylistically and colour neutral. It has deliberately been designed as a more discrete, open-plan space with a bright accent yellow colourway.

    Halls and corridors

    Within the entrance hall, sloped walls are finished with mirrors, which enhances the light and airy aesthetic of the space. A bespoke Galliano Wall Lamp from DELIGHTFULL acts as a centrepiece within the hall. The minimalist style of the lamps fit seamlessly with the geometric patterns of the artwork. Manufactured in iron, the Galliano lamp produces a unique lighting effect when the light is being cast through its pipes.

    The corridor separates the private and common rooms of the apartment. The white colour palette and wall mouldings here make the space visually bigger – however, the space is broken up by the Brubeck wall lamp from DELIGHTFULL. This luxurious wall sconce is a statement piece on its own, shining by its own and breaking free from the white walls.

    Bedrooms and bathrooms

    In the bedroom, a lightweight hexagonal lamp accentuates the shape of the bay window. Within this window is a tea table with armchairs – the colour of which matches the hue of the walls to make the room appear more spacious.

    Moving on to the bathroom, the space is designed with a deliberate luxury feel with marble panels, a black freestanding bathtub and a contrasting black and white floor pattern. The unique marble pattern in the bathroom resembles the river current, while copper and gold accessories complete the picture.
