Retro style may seem like a cliché, but, if it serves only as an inspiration and not a theme for the entire interior, it could be a great success. This Scandinavian interior in St. Petersburg is a perfect example of that combination.
Designers of the studio INT2 Architecture took advantage of few carefully chosen pieces of furniture in retro style, and combined them with modern elements inspired by the Scandinavian style. All pieces of furniture in retro style are association for the design from the mid-20th century. The result is bright, cozy and unusual space of 60 square meters.
The hallway and the living room are using plenty of natural light that highlights all shades of bright palette including the light gray sofa, floor and shelves of light wood and white walls. Multifunctional shelves at the entrance serve as an open closet for jackets and coats, as well as creative divider between two rooms.
On the way from the living room to the kitchen, there is one of the most recognizable pieces from the middle of the last century – a beautiful wooden dressing table. Just like the coffee table in the living room, which has curved legs, chest of drawers has a timeless charm that could fit in many styles.
The kitchen has a playful ambience that can be noticed trough the ordinary wallpaper and the attractive black chalkboard on the wall. The black chalkboard wakes creativity of owners and allows them to change the appearance of the room constantly. Black chairs that replicate the style of Charles Eames fits well with the black wall without disturbing the joyful atmosphere in the room.
The clean lines, light palette with neutral shades, and black details are the main characteristics of the bedroom and the bathroom.
