The apartment we’re about to analyze is situated on the last floor of an old four-story building in Sofia, Bulgaria. The neighborhood is near the city center and has a lot of small parks and gardens. The apartment takes advantage of that, capturing views of these green areas from every room.
The interior design was a project by
The project’s name is Apartment H01 and the client is a businessman with a passion for travel and photography. Judging by the final result, the main requirement appears to have been the design of a contemporary private home infused with rustic elements in order to obtain a very inviting and, at the same time, fresh atmosphere throughout.
The combination of colors and textures used in this open social area is really nicely balanced. The wooden parquet flooring gives the space a warm and welcoming look while the chartreuse-colored sofa and the green and blue striped area rug add a fresh touch to the décor.
The staircase that leads up to the attic space
A darker shade of green is featured by the dining chairs. This accent color was chosen as a way to bring in some of the freshness visible through the windows of the apartment. At the same time, the wood and exposed brick complement the color palette in a natural and seamless way.
The sleeping area is small and simple. An accent brick wall adds a rustic touch to the overall minimalist and modern décor. The colors used here are neutral and the bed is positioned in such a way that it faces the window and allows a view of the trees.
This space has its own bathroom as well as a wardrobe. The bathroom is especially interesting. It appears as if the parquet flooring continues onto one of the walls. The shower area features small tiles and a glass partition.
The layout of the apartment and its interior design are flexible, allowing multiple configurations to be adapted. The attic, for example, could become a separate sleeping area while the study could be converted into a bedroom for the kids.
