Let's flash back to last year when Pantone announced to the world that Ultra Violet would be the color of 2018. The design world was kind of like, "Oh, hm," because decorating in any shade of purple hasn't ever really been ubiquitous — probably because it takes a really clever design to pull it off.
But this apartment in Kiev, Ukraine works purple accents in ways that are undeniably Instagrammable. Architect Iya Turabelidze of Iya Turabelidze Studio wished to create a space that could offer a shift from the noise and speed of everyday life, where serene and modern lines mix with restrained pops of color.
Measuring about 750 square feet, the design required creating more free space. Hidden doors and a hidden wardrobe system contribute to the seemingly clutterless interior. Throughout the apartment, a mix of furniture styles — including Scandinavian, traditional, and custom — were selected to create a minimalist scheme that's simple yet fun.
