A free-flowing layout creates a connected sense of family in this 112 square metre apartment project in the south of Moscow, Russia. Designed by Julia Khabarova, for a young couple with a child, the home was created to include an autonomous master block that avoids the inclusion of dead ends around the main living spaces. A central “cube” forces new scenarios of movement around the apartment in answer to an immovable riser. The material palette of slatted oak veneer, suede upholstery, cool concrete and reflective metals create an earthy aesthetic, alongside tonal shades of grey and warm umber accents. The full floor plan is included at the end of the tour.

Large open plan interiors can take a strong dose of colour, as illustrated by these three darkly decorated living spaces. A dark wall treatment can help generously proportioned spaces feel more cohesive and cosily contained. Black and grey perimeters take elements of the room into the shadows to let lighter pieces shine and hold main focus. We take a look at how pale sofas make an open plan lounge into a light heart of the room, whilst black kitchens and charcoal dining areas wait quietly in the shadows. You’ll also find a plethora of home lighting ideas to illuminate and dramatise, from concealed perimeter lights and recessed spotlights to chic chandeliers and stylish floor lamps.
