Each of these apartment interiors has been designed by 23Design to fashion a sense of sunny serenity in the modern world. With a grey and white decor palette, sleek contemporary furniture silhouettes and a minimalist approach, these two light-filled apartment designs are calming sanctuaries to come to after a day in the bustling city. The first interior we’ll visit features a faux skylight design that creates an open and sunny feel, even on a grey day. Custom-built storage units line the walls and harbour a hidden doorway. The second serene grey and white interior is given a sunny boost with bright yellow accents, and a glass wall home office that shares the distribution of natural light.

Designed by Almaty Vilnius Architects, the space is arranged around hero pieces that captivate the eye and engage the imagination.

Created for a young married couple, this bright 105 square metre home interior is situated in the PIRS residential complex, Minsk, Belarus. Visualised by Zrobim Architects, the main concept for the interior was to maximise permeability of light and space. Only a small WC gains no access to natural daylight, whilst glass partition walls share the resource between all other spaces, including two bedrooms. This transparency also creates a connectivity between each area: the hallway trickles openly into the kitchen diner, the kitchen diner attaches with the bedrooms, and the master bedroom flows seamlessly into the ensuite bathroom, which results in an easy flow for relaxed modern living.

Cosy vibes abound inside this two-room private apartment, located in the Sunny Riviera residential complex, Kyiv, Ukraine. Visualised by Between The Walls for a young mother and her child, the 94 square metre home interior has been warmly enhanced with bright and energetic colour. Various stylistic accents and elements come together without overwhelming the space, through careful furniture arrangement and considered decor additions. Clean Scandinavian lines crash into bold bohemian styling to achieve a cleanly eclectic aesthetic. A circular shape theme rounds off crisp contemporary lines and accomplishes a friendly flow, whilst a brave use of pattern shakes up the beige backdrop with blasts of orange, blue, green and blush.
