Deliciously dark decor meets raw industrial aesthetics in this 300-square-meter modern home, designed by Elena Sedova. Nestled in the heart of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this spellbinding residence showcases a fusion of contemporary design elements and captivating contrasts. Moody wooden accent walls and a matching lattice ceiling spread deep, lustrous tones, setting the stage for an atmosphere of refined opulence and sophistication. Alongside this dark elegance is the raw magnetism of unadorned concrete decor, which adds a rugged, urban edge to the interior. The harmonious union of these opposing forces creates a space with great depth and wonder, where light and shadow reveal and conceal, and luxury takes on a truly distinctive form.
