Moscow Apartment Design that Pairs Old and New by Korneev Design Workshop

Moscow Apartment Design that Pairs Old and New — Beautifully_01

This stylish apartment is located in Moscow, Russia, and was designed by Korneev Design Workshop. It’s an interesting blend of the old and the new: the building in which it is situated is older, while several modern ingredients give it a fresh, eclectic look. Witness an aged stone mantel for a former fireplace; it’s not a fireplace anymore, but it does hold a bevy of candles that provide a pleasant ambience to the room when they’re all lighted at once. As if to underscore the modern, a flat-screen television is mounted directly above that cozy nook. Contemporary lighting, sculptural accents, and tables sit happily side-by-side with upholstered Windsor chairs; a mirrored wall visually expands the whitewashed brick room, while its open plan segues the sitting area directly into a dining space with ornate chairs that look like they came from a heraldic castle.

The open plan continues, however — beneath hanging industrial lamp fixtures — past the dining table, with its immense hammered-metal bowl full of apples (another red accent) to a kitchen that’s a study in modern white and stainless steel. Just past this central living and entertaining area, a small blue bedroom is sequestered behind latticed shutter-style doors; the “headboard” of the bed is three painted wooden doors (also white) bonded together. Covers are spare and white, while red and blue pillows brighten the space and a long window lends light to an orchid in a contemporary vase. The bedside tables? Old wood, curved legs and all; the lamps? Chrome scissors-style. Finally, the bath pairs old and new as well: a shining oval vanity sink — with an ornate silver-edged mirror hanging above it. It’s a Moscow mix of old and new, of aged and modern, in a clever, open design that works.
