Talented designers Piotr Matuszek and Gosia Czarny gave this small-scale apartment a bright and spacious makeover. The clients were a young couple who inherited the property from their grandmother – and at only 20 sq. meters, it required a near-total structural transformation to make the space feel large enough for two.

Anya GarienchickDesigned by Ukrainian architect Nastya Antonyuk, this bold apartment makes a big impression in just 43 square meters. It centers around a matte blackstructure that houses the entertainment system on the outside, and cleverly hides a bathroom on the inside – a window at the top ensures that natural light can penetrate even into the private heart of the home.

Anya GarienchickEclectic decor reflects the personality of the client. Antique furniture, diverse textiles, and industrial lighting come together for a fascinating and fun aesthetic. It’s hard to go wrong with a nice mid-century modern focal point to center the space, like the classic Acapulco chair in striking cyan blue.

A quick peek at the kitchen reveals gorgeous vintage-inspired appliances from Smeg. The industrial lighting also enjoys an antique revival – highly visible cords draw immediate attention, while the Edison bulbs provide a soft glow that won’t overwhelm the senses.

Lovingly curated details make this small Moscow apartment feel like home.

Most of the necessary storage space is housed in minimalistic white drawers treated with a silky white finish – it looks clean and sharp, and most importantly, doesn’t take any emphasis away from the more important decorative details throughout the apartment. Using round decor provides an interesting contrast to the cubic forms of the furniture.
