Beautiful, old architecture deserves to be preserved and celebrated. That being said, this doesn’t mean that an old house has to stay old forever or that it can’t become a home that responds to all the needs of a modern family. In fact, contrasts are often the key to a magnificent design that values the old and celebrates the new. But enough with the generalities. Let’s move on to something more specific. This residence is located in the Italian countryside and was recently redesigned by Vitaliy Yorov and Iryna Dzhemesiuk.
Terms such as luxurious, glamorous and sophisticated can all be used to describe this amazing residence. What’s special about it is the unusual and very beautiful combination of styles that defines its interior. The designers are known for their creative approach and the fact that they enjoy combining different styles, forms and materials as well as for using techniques from different eras when decorating contemporary spaces. They managed to turn the Hanna floor lamp into a sculptural decoration for the living room.
These two talented Ukrainian designers are always in the search for harmony and ways to find the middle ground between aesthetics and functionality so that the spaces they design can be both exquisite pictures and comfortable homes. Each project tells a unique story and in this case it’s a story about time and beauty.
For the designers, looks and functionality and two inseparable attributes which they always to balance out as best as possible in their projects. This residence is an extraordinary example. Another constant across all of their projects is the preference for natural materials and well-designed details. What we love most about this particular project is the wonderful harmony between all the different elements, all the styles, influences, textures, materials, colors and forms. The Hanna pendant lamp was a way to create symmetry in the living room.
Each zone has its own distinctive character. The living space is a very inviting and comfortable space decorated with shades of green and neutrals while the dining room is a bit more theatrical, featuring a burgundy accent wall and black and white furnishings. The constant in all the spaces is the array of golden accent pieces and the use of exquisite lighting fixtures. For the dining area, the designers chose two Brubeck ceiling lamps with designs reminiscent of the pipe organ and its dramatic music.
The kitchen is a little more on the modern side, being defined by minimalist designs, clean and simple lines and a chromatic palette of neutrals. But in addition to all these elements, the kitchen also has patterned tiles on the floor and chic wall decor complemented by a cluster of minimalist pendant lamps.
The residence as a whole is a mesmerizing symphony of beautiful artwork, eye-catching accent furniture, glamorous decorations and an irresistibly beautiful combination of classical and contemporary design elements. Its vaulted ceilings and arched windows share the space with unexpected forms, artistic design elements, vivid colors and modern furnishings, the most eye-catching of which is the Diamond sideboard, featured here in gold.
The bathroom is really open, spacious and airy and has a cool art deco feel to it. The tub and washbasins have geometric forms and a glossy black finish. They’re complemented by golden fixtures. The star is the textured accent wall.
