A project of the small private apartment placed in Brovary, Ukraine.
Designed by Ihor Havrylenko for a family who loves minimalism
and gray color. They don't think about adding a lot of textures
because it will make this space filled.
/ the main idea of the apartment
The main idea of the apartment is to make simple and beautiful space for people who love gray color at all. It was my first time when worked with one main color used in all rooms. I was shocked. Ok. Bedroom made in gray color. Let it be. But how can I made children room in gray color? I took a lot of time to realize that gray color in the children room it is not bad. Also, if you add colorful decor it will be pretty good.
So as you can see I chose three main colors: gray, black and white. And complementary: shades of gray, and light brown. Materials are pretty simple: wood, metal, plaster, and textile. Without decor, except children room. Without flowers, except orchids. Even carpets are too much for these customers. Just pure surfaces, open area, and natural light.
«What kind of color do you prefer?» said Ihor.
«Gray,» Customer sighed.
«Ok. But maybe you like another color?» said Ihor to him.
«Mmmm... No,» answered Customer.
— little funny conversation between designer and customer
«I love this project so much as I can. This apartment is a good example of great collaboration between customer and designer. My main idea is listening to the customer and use my skills to make a good project.»
