Minimal Color, Warm Comfort: Skandy Apartment by Grosu Art Studio
In the midst of a minimalist Scandinavian-themed interior, a red reflective square pops against white walls, providing a warm accent of color in this apartment design by Moldova’s Grosu Art Studio. Straight, clean lines and neutrals, heavy on pure white, ebony, and wood grain, set a streamlined backdrop for a modern style without fuss or clutter. On the first level, white walls and pale wood grain are accented by bookshelves in both pure white and deep brown, and an entertainment center fronted by soft couches. Track lighting and contemporary fixtures provide for light at night, while floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the interior in natural light by day. Fronting the view is a handy dining area, steps away from a brown-topped white island that delineates the kitchen.
The entry and kitchen help break the unrelieved stretch of white; deep taupe walls are a nice contrast, kept from being too dark by the presence of mirrors in the entry and up-lighting under the kitchen cabinets that both illuminates and warms the space. Upstairs, you’ll find a sitting area behind a glass railing and a second “perch” next to the window. In the bedroom, a deep umber-colored fur rug and textured white headboard wall play off the taupe color from downstairs and dark brown draperies. And the bath continues the overall palette, with wood grain counters, white sinks and fixtures, and more indirect light. With a serene ambience, this no-frills apartment is still inviting, warm, and comfy, thanks to great style from Grosu Art Studio.
