╱  Introduction
'What Woman Wants' is a design project about 'how true businesswoman wants to see her own space'. A place without a husband, children, and other irritating things. She is strong, she is independent, she has two children and a dog and this is the project for her. For a long time, she lives with her family in their own house. And she really loves family. She loves to be a lovely mom. Absolutely. But she doesn't know what is own space and she really needs it. A place without family`s rules, noises and other stuff which can disturb her rest. She needs her island.
╱  Location and place
This private apartment located in Ukrainian city Skala-Podilska. It is not a big city surrounded by fields, forests, and mountains. This place is really nice. Fresh air, wonderful views and a true connection with nature is there.
'I got inspired by all of this stuff. 'What Woman Want' is one wonderful project among oldfashioned buildings. Really. I think nobody else in this city doesn't have interior design at all.'
The apartment located in an old big office building which has 2 floors. Nobody lives here and nobody works here. Because this building was empty for a long time before the customer bought it. So... just one apartment is based here. Like an island. The apartment has six different rooms: the main entrance area, bathroom, kitchen-studio combine with living room, guest room-cabinet and her room with a wardrobe.
╱  The conception of design
'What Woman Whats? She wanted to make a connection with the interior and exterior. I did it by using natural colors and shape. She wanted to have a great place with true wood texture and white color. I did it. She wanted to bring into this home contemporary form and philosophy. I made this place with a strong philosophy of love to life and the world. All of us need a place like this because this place is about rest, calm, strong nature energy and connection with the world.'
The designer decided to use three main colors: white - clear color which means light and air, wooden brown - nature and natural texture, and blue - water, the energy of moving and restoring. Main conception of this apartment is to make a contemporary place where you can feel yourself like in the wild nature. That is why the designer used natural material like stone and linen blankets. The details are the most important thing! 
'I love this project because it reminds me of the forest after the rain. This is a fresh design with a combination of modern Scandinavian and minimalist styles.'

╱  A few words about kitchen-studio and living room areas
This big room has three different areas: the kitchen, dining area, and living room. The main idea is to combine all of these areas and make a special main space with wonderful cozy comfort. The customer wanted to make a lovely place where she can do business meetings, parties and to have a great time with her family.
'Yes. Of course, she will use this apartment for having fun with her family. She is a mother at least. So I wanted to make a really nice place for them. Open enough. With a huge sofa and chair. I wanted to set the feeling of Scandinavia but more laconic without useless elements.'
— Ihor Havrylenko, designer
All space separated by the line of colors: white and brown. It helps to make this huge space more comfortable and laconic. All interior has this wonderful line on the wall. This line made in natural wood and framed in blue metal. Love this detail so much. Also, this line helps to make more creative entrance area. This area looks like a part of the museum. Museum of the minimalism.
╱  A few words about the bedroom, cabinet and dressing

This place feels like an art. This wonderful wooden texture combines with gray and white textile. You should see this cool deep blue color and the white sculpture of Coral from the sea. This bedroom is cozy, comfortable, lovely. You can see the lamp Salamp near the bed. It's designed by Ihor Havrylenko too and you can find all the information about this product right here - Salamp
'I tried to use gold elements as an accent. It's not true gold but it looks like. I think this material is the best way to add to the interior a little classic beauty.'
