Nothing creates more room in comparatively cramped spaces than the perfect use of color and light. White for instance, breathes comfort into tiny spaces and creates a deceptively larger appearance. This modern apartment by , in Belarus applies the principle of perfect lighting and appropriate color scheme to do just that; enhance its aesthetics while maintaining its futuristic appeal.
The white sofa, which is the highlight of the living room, is both comfortable and inviting. Though made entirely of white fabric, the homeowner threw in a combination of mixed colored cushions to bring out the contrast that blends with the various color schemes applied on other areas of the living room.
The walls here are predominantly white and so are a good proportion of the pieces of furniture. This works well to complement the wooden flooring, white ceiling and corresponding white cabinetry in most of the rooms.
The house further brings out its character using beautiful pieces of artwork. These too, blend with the overall color scheme. However, they do a lot more. The giraffe artwork for instance, combines with the beauty of live plants, strategically placed in the living room, to weave a theme of natural livability that is very energizing.
These artworks, the dug-in bookcase on the living room and white chest of drawers portray a living area that is pure, innocent and filled with goodness. The flowing curtains that drape the windows further accentuate this character.
The house has a little four-chair dinette next to a well-lit area that serves as the kitchen. This cooking area stands out not only because of the lighting but also because of its simplicity. Just like the entire house, this space too, adorns the white color proudly. The cabinetry here is practical as it is beautiful. The kitchen space has a sink next to the multiple burner cooker. The bold rectangular ceramic tiles above this sink and cooker area help blend the kitchen space with the entire living area.
