The colours we choose for our interiors can say a lot about our personalities: Dark, sombre and serious, vivid and vivacious, a monochrome minimalist. This 146 square metre home in Kyiv, Ukraine, is filled with a bright and playful palette that vibes with quirky displays of modern art. Designer Nadya Chabannaya has used green, blue, pink & yellow accent decor to energise kids’ rooms and adult living spaces alike. Common accent shades thread through each area but appear original and exciting as they’re used in new and eye catching ways. A cool grey backdrop softly soothes the space around punchy accent pieces, creating a balanced and harmonious scheme.

Bedrooms are tackled in two entirely different ways in each space, with one compact side layout, and another Murphy bed solution for the lounge. The kitchens in each home feel surprisingly spacious, luxurious even, with added dining peninsulas and slick decorative touches. Study detailed floor plans at the end of each tour for more inspo.
