/ the main idea of the apartment
/ the main idea of the apartment
The main idea of the apartment is to make simple and beautiful space for people who love gray color at all. It was my first time when worked with one main color used in all rooms. I was shocked. Ok. Bedroom made in gray color. Let it be. But how can I made children room in gray color? I took a lot of time to realize that gray color in the children's room is not bad. Also, if you add colorful decor it will be pretty good.
So as you can see I chose three main colors: gray, black and white. And complementary: shades of gray, and light brown. Materials are pretty simple: wood, metal, plaster, and textile. Without decor, except the children room. Without flowers, except orchids. Even carpets are too much for these customers. Just pure surfaces, open area, and natural light.
