About Luna Apartment
Creating a Touch-Centered Atmosphere
Our aim was to create more than just visual beauty; we wanted to craft a space that engages your sense of touch. The design revolves around a rich mix of textures, highlighted by the use of clay-colored plaster. Hand-molded bas-reliefs, which adorn the living and bedroom walls, double as both art and tactile features. Complementing these are natural wood furniture pieces, offering a pleasant contrast to the rougher textures, and enhancing our natural connection.
Warm and Earthy Color Palette
We chose colors inspired by earth tones, like clay and sand. These, along with warm wood details, create a cozy atmosphere. The addition of vibrant colors from Ukrainian-made furniture and decor brings depth and liveliness to the space.
Introducing Dynamic Contrasts
To keep the design interesting, we added contrasting elements. Bold colors like terracotta and graphite break up the monotony, defining different areas in subtle ways. This approach ensures a balanced mix of colors, giving the Luna apartment a dynamic and lively feel.
