A small and dark apartment in Russia


Working with less than 24 square meters designer Tatiana Shishkina designed this this dark and elegant apartment with a young woman in mind. Everything in this clever designed apartment has a function. The steel construction functions both as a room divider and stairs, enough daylight can come into the kitchen and leaves more room beneath the staircase.

I think the black painted wood panelling is really beautiful and probably typical for this Russian apartment, it gives the room a classic touch and helps creating a cozy sitting corner. 
Upstairs a small workspace and bedroom and a mirror wall to make the space look larger. The bathroom has a great layout and I love the idea of sliding doors hiding the washing machine, an idea I could use for my own home as well.

It's very dramatic. But I am not sure I would want to be in a small, dark place during the dark Russian winter. I think that's why the Scandinavians do everything so white.

Is it me or the ceilings on the second floor are way too low? The overall look is beautifull, but I can't avoid feeling some claustrophobia... Love your blog by the way!

Buying a home may be a dream, but the initial purchase is only the introduction to that dream. There's always something about your house that could be a little better, a little closer to perfect. Now, with a bit of planning, you can bring your home closer to your dream of perfection. See more here Professional resources

this apartment does look a tad dark. But I suppose all the better for keeping any messes out of sight! Storage cupboards in black tend to show dust quite well though, so that might be another consideration for people eyeing this colour palette.
