Inspired by their love for travel, especially their favorite countries, this apartment, in Moscow, was conceived for a family of 4, who enjoys spending their time together and with friends. Entering this residence is discovering a world full of cultures and stories - Greece for the kitchen and the balcony, Africa for the living room, the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean for the kids room and the urban hotel style for the main bedroom.

Anna Kovalchenko, responsible for the project, wanted to create a “home for living”, relaxed and warm but also filled with personality and functionality. “Clients asked for lots of storage so I incorporated several large wardrobes and hidden storage”, explained the interior designer. Natural materials, such as wood, stone and metal, enhance the feeling of comfort, between rich colors and textures.

Planing stage was one of the main challenges during the process, due to the small size of the rooms. During 9 months, furniture was developed and manufactured based on Anna’s sketches. “They are very happy with the idea of a hammock in the kids room - and asked to make it super durable, so that adults could also could be there and play with kids.”
