Red can be a difficult color to work with when it comes to interior design. Too much red and a space can end up feeling hostile and loud, very far from the tranquil and inviting atmosphere that most people want. This apartment, located in Kyiv, Ukraine and brought to us by visualizer Alesya Kasianenko, uses red as a beautiful accent but does not overdo it. Instead, this home feels vibrant and welcoming. Further, modern elements weave their way through every room, but there are still many rustic features that give the apartment just a touch of the outdoors.
The main living space of the apartment is an open plan, encompassing a plush seating area, dining room, and small kitchen. It is in this cozy public space that the red element is felt most heavily.
It is important to point out that the color red is thought to be symbolic in certain parts of the Ukraine, representing love and positivity. Small, warm elements like decorative candles only add to this idea.
Although the living area does not have a great deal of square footage in this apartment, there is space for a unique coffee table nestled next to the modern sofa.
Looking out from the seating area into the kitchen, the red element starts to dissipate, melting into softer grays and whites.
