Today we’re going to take a look at a very interesting bachelor pad, unlike anything that might come to mind when thinking of such a space. The apartment we have in mind is located in Moscow and it was a project by architect Maxim Tikhonov from m2project Design Bureau. It’s a compact space, more exactly a studio but it looks and feels spacious and very breezy.
The style chosen by the architect for this place is a mix of modern and retro, with some nice inspiration from the 1960s. This unexpected combination of influences has resulted in an interior design with lots of character and personality and the two styles work together beautifully.
Functionality and comfort were the basic concepts for the project. The studio has an overall very simple design. All the elements which could block the views or become excessive were removed and all that remains is a very functional and practical décor.
Elements such as partitions, plaster, brick walls and old floor planks were removed in order to allow the apartment to breathe and to make room for something simpler and less striking. The color palette used throughout is very beautiful. I really like the shades of gray and how they interact with the light wooden floors and the walls. The white elements add a touch of elegance and tranquility throughout.
