We present to you an incredibly exquisite interior design of an apartment in a classic style — another successful project in the asset of the Taiwanese company Mole Design. This time, its specialists had to deal with spacious apartments located in one of the elite residential complexes of the island’s capital.
The team did not change its principles: special attention was paid to the interior layout, the location of functional areas.
Neutral color scheme is another tool from the studio’s arsenal, which is indispensable in cases when it is necessary to visually expand the space. In this example, it is diluted with a few bright accents in the form of sofa cushions and paintings.
In general, the laconic decor is enlivened by rich textures. We are talking, in particular, about natural wood, from which the flooring and part of the furniture are made, as well as a long-pile carpet in the living room and a stunningly beautiful pendant lamp with a ribbed shade of pinkish glass.
The most expressive classical elements are sofas and a banquette decorated in the kapiton technique.

Exquisite interior design of the apartment in a modern classic style
Anyone who is in search of ideas and inspiration for the transformation of their own home, it will be useful to take a look at the interior design of the apartment in modern classical style, designed by Spanish architect Josep Rua.
The apartments in question are located in Valencia and are characterized by exquisite simplicity, which is provided by an abundance of natural wood and a laconic palette, but above all — light, lots of light.
The landscapes of Valencia are particularly beautiful. Traditional Mediterranean architecture, as a rule, does not use this advantage, as if trying to deny it.
Obviously, comfort considerations are considered first, and providing protection from the scorching sun rays that literally incinerate the city for several months of the year becomes a priority.
However, technological progress has led to the creation of more advanced types of glass, which make it possible to supply residential interiors with large windows and at the same time guarantee the performance of a protective function.
Therefore, serious design changes were made in the penthouse we are considering. The architect did not hesitate to violate the integrity of the ceiling by installing windows in it, all over the space, from the bedroom to the bathroom. One of these skylights stretches along the main facade, revealing a rather peculiar view.
The place of the current bedroom was previously occupied by a terrace. It was located slightly above the rest of the apartment, and the author of the project decided to take advantage of this circumstance to separate the bedroom itself from the bathroom. A bathtub built into the floor and painted to match it also contributes to this task.
The walls in rooms with high humidity are lined with tiles from Mutina with a “honeycomb” relief pattern. When the sun’s rays penetrate through the ceiling windows and fall on vertical surfaces covered with small hexagons, there is a bizarre play of shadows, the effect of raindrops.
Mirrors are installed in such a way that most of the room is reflected in them. They create a sense of spaciousness and an interesting perspective. Rotating panels with mirror finish delicately delimit the bathroom and dressing room, producing countless highlights.
The bed looks as if it does not stand on the floor, but only attaches the headboard to the wall. The intricate curves of the ceiling continue in the lower part of the room, forming a rounding that acts as a night table. Almost the only piece of decor here is the Cappello table lamp from Moldesign.
This modern kingdom of light is the embodiment of the new architecture of Valencia, allowing you to enjoy all the delights of the Mediterranean climate.

Wall decoration in the interior is another opportunity to make it unique. This is the opinion of many well-known designers who urge their clients to give this issue priority. The original decor of all or one of the vertical surfaces of the room is able to give it a unique and stylish look.

First of all, it is necessary to take a very serious approach to choosing a palette, which may consist of one or more harmonious or contrasting shades. In this case, everything will depend on your tastes and desires.

Properly selected details can make a room visually more spacious and voluminous. Therefore, it is worth considering options with geometric panels, stucco molding or niches with built-in illumination.

The design of lighting in the interior of the house is not an easy task. It is necessary to choose lamps or lamps suitable in style and design. In this article we will look at some inspiring ideas that demonstrate the beauty of floor lighting, and you will see how impressive it can look if you approach work with creativity.
Dazzling lighting for dreamers, outdoors
Such floor lamps are mainly used in open spaces: balconies, loggias to act as a “landmark” and emphasize architectural features and some natural elements.
Magnificent lights seem to merge with the sparkling background, turning a small loggia into a real work of art!
The first option of lighting in the interior of the house
Floor lamps are becoming more and more popular in the world of modern landscape design. Their main feature is that they create a kind of play of shadows with their correct location.
The sculpture house in Las Vegas, pictured below, is a perfect example of how outdoor lighting can create a real mesmerizing beauty, especially after sunset. It not only illuminates darkened landscapes, but also creates patterns and shadows that complement the steel and glass structure of the house.
The overhead lighting in the following photo is very appropriate, emphasizes the textural beauty of the stone wall and its uniqueness in a modern space, and at the same time does not seem too overwhelming.
A great option for modern lighting
Have you ever thought about lighting for your bathroom? We are sure that floor lamps for the bathroom will soon be relevant. Take a look at the photo below and you will understand how necessary floor lamps can be.

Functional and aesthetically pleasing
Floor lighting will look quite impressive in dark rooms. The main thing is to arrange the lamps rationally and the space will become unrecognizable, as in the photo below.
Elegant and beautiful
LED floor lights, as a rule, are the most preferred options for these lamps, and they provide a better visual effect, as well as reduce energy consumption.
Incredible interior design of an apartment of 70 square meters
Creating the interior of an apartment of 70 square meters is quite a difficult task. Anna and Eugeni Bach have proposed an incredible expansion project in Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain.
Anna and Eugeni Bach:
“The project included a complete reconstruction of an apartment in the Eixample – Barcelona area, located in a brick building of the early twentieth century.
Initially, there were two rooms in the building with a view of the facade, the rest were illuminated and ventilated through a wide courtyard. This arrangement gave rise to a number of corridors and dark spaces that did not perform any functions other than connecting.
The new location was due to the desire of customers to arrange two bedrooms with a view of the facade, and the kitchen, dining room, living room and space exploration room will be organized in the rest of the house. Too many functions were assigned to such a short wall with windows to the courtyard.
We decided to keep two bedrooms and create an open space that will perform all these functions. The generous height of the house allowed us to develop a separate kitchen. As if we had constructed a piece of furniture. And on top of it, an attic was formed, which can be used as a guest room or a room for work.
This solution has positive aspects, at least in that it allows you to use the exceptional height of the apartment. Frees up additional space. Frees up access to all other rooms. The detached kitchen, of a lower height, further emphasizes the idea of an open space.
The original small toilet is located in front of the entrance. The bathroom was placed opposite the master bedroom. And the use of exceptional height made it possible to raise the bathroom floor and create an additional storage area. Additional space is also achieved by placing the bathroom under the shower, combining both functions in one space.”
In the days of developing a restrained apartment interior, Andre Mack became both a designer, a winemaker and a father of three boys. He and his wife Phoebe have created a wonderful family home in Brooklyn, where everything around, beautifully and very stylishly merges.
Designer paintings serve as part of the interior
Andre Mack and Phoebe Damrosh talk about their apartment:
Our style: Objects with soul and history.
Inspiration: When the couple met for the first time, they went to a party at Hudson. After this event, Andre and Phoebe discussed this more and more often. Later, the couple added a little Royal Tenenbaum, The Selby, and street style of the 80s to the style.
Distinctive feature: The kindest people in the world live next door to the family. Their children are quietly friends and have fun with the neighborhood kids at any time. As for the interior features, the favorite design element is the wooden panels in the dining room.
Wooden panels in the wall paneling
The main problem: thousands of tiny nails in the wooden floor. They often stick out. Therefore, the family has hammers on both floors of the house…
What friends say: “Is there anything new?”. The house is always on the move. Andre is always in search of new treasures on the way to permutations.
There is something to be proud of: Andre found a couple of speakers on the street in Brooklyn. After a little electrical work, they began to sound fantastic.

Plants in the interior of an apartment in Brooklyn
Plants in the interior of the apartment are the first thing you will notice in the Williamsburg apartments. There is a lot of greenery in the apartment, it is everywhere, the interior is saturated with the richness of lush jungles. The most carefree style of all interiors in Brooklyn.

In the Brooklyn summer house, the lack of a courtyard was compensated for by the abundant vegetation inside. In addition to the richness of greenery, the interior also has a hammock, a compost box and even domestic insects.
In summer, greenery gives a special colorfulness to the interior. Rich colors and luxurious gardens beckon to stay and relax in this house.

Industrial style in the interior of the apartment Dave and Mollie Code
High ceilings, brick walls, smooth surface of furniture items are components of a somewhat careless, industrial style in the interior of the Dave and Mollie Code apartments.
In Chicago, they are the owners of Studio Code, a company engaged in the restoration of houses, the main goal for them is to preserve the historical elements of the interior and create a functional space. Their apartment fully reflects the main principle of their company, while remaining comfortable and modern.
Leather chairs and suitcases as a decorative item
This is how Mollie writes about her apartment:
My husband Dave and I have been living here for a little over a year. Before moving, we completely renovated the interior of this apartment. Initially, this house served as a factory, but later it was converted into a living room (just imagine – wooden cabinets and dark granite countertops are all around).
We wanted to update the space in such a way as to show the amazing history of this place, so we chose contrasting materials – decorated the kitchen in cold gray tones, bleached the walls and floors and added wooden and brick elements of warm tones to the interior. Together with my husband, we like to develop new designs and discuss ideas about renovations.
Style: I love comfort combined with ostentation. I am inspired by different design movements, but most of all I like the contrast of details, whether it is the contrast of colors, textures or styles.
I love unexpected combinations in the interior, such as a mixture of a rough barn table with Danish sliding chairs. Maybe I don’t always have grandiose design ideas, but I prefer to include in the interior those things that do not leave me indifferent.
Contrasting interior details
Inspires: I draw inspiration from any architectural works and design blogs, in particular Scandinavian ones. We are also happy to live in the West Loop area of Chicago, where you can be inspired by various elements of old and new buildings.
Favorite interior item: We love spending time on the roof. This is the kind of place where you feel yourself floating above the city, and we like this feeling!

The main task: To demonstrate the true beauty of the space. The apartment used to be part of the factory.

Open communications and beams support a common style
What friends say: Many people speak positively about our apartment. They find it unusual for Chicago – it looks Western, in an industrial style. I really like that it was created in an excellent style, unusual for the interiors of other apartments in the city.
Happy apartment owners Dave and Mollie Code in the living room
Minus: The laundry room – we did not present her photo, as we store all sorts of junk in it. There is usually complete chaos going on there.
A point of pride: I love watercolor drawings and pictures and I write them myself, they are hung all over the house. My favorite is a huge painting depicting the Church of Santa Costanza in Rome, it can be seen at the entrance to the apartment.
Watercolor paintings as an interior item
Our weakness: Our weakness is, perhaps, our dining table and chairs. We have been trying to choose a suitable option for a long time, and, in the end, we did not choose one of the cheap ones. But we were satisfied.

Tip: Review the things that are in your apartment. Dave and I try to leave only those things that are really useful, meaningful to us or really beautiful.
Sources of inspiration: Favorite sources of inspiration are websites and companies that produce hand-made products.
Ivana loves simplicity and simplicity in the interior. She loves the feeling of “empty” space. And this is reflected in the design of her apartment; it is simple, modern and minimal.
Ivana advises all buyers of real estate: “be patient, take your time and enjoy the feeling of “empty” space for exactly as long as you do not pick up furniture to your liking.”
Bedroom in the style of minimalism
The apartment is decorated in a modern style. Located in the center of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal on Roy Street between St. Denis and St. Laurent boulevards, everything you need is within walking distance. Along with the simplicity of the space, Ivana notes her favorite design elements are large windows and natural light.
Ivana is also inspired by young artists, so whenever possible, she is happy to buy their work.
In her apartment there are many paintings created by student artists, such as Isabelle Dufresne-Lienert, Eloise Ptito-Echeverria, Veronica Santangelo, etc. These works of art not only personalize the decor, but also add a little color to the white space.

Ivana about the design of her apartment:
Style: Simple, modern and minimal
Favorite piece of furniture: Large windows and natural light in my office. I also like my pink sofa from designer Gus and the painting in the living room on the top floor. And I also love high doors. They make the ceilings seem higher than 3 meters!

The main task: to make these two-storey apartments more attractive. This apartment has a lot of free space. There is a large selection of furniture and accessories in the shops closest to the house. Every day, walking along the boulevards of St. Denis and St. Laurent, I look at these interior items in the shop windows, how can I not buy them?
What my friends say: Your apartment is very beautiful and big
Minus: There is no photo of my emergency entrance to the apartment, as it has not been repaired. Sometimes I use it as a closet, but you can find another use for it.
My weakness: Mirrors, paintings and various lamps and lamps. As soon as there is money, I can’t help but buy something new.

Tip: Buyers of new housing often try to fill the empty space of the apartment with furniture or accessories. I’ve made costly mistakes.
Be patient, take your time and enjoy the feeling of “empty” space for exactly as long as you do not pick up furniture to your liking. Don’t get attached to furniture. If it does not fit your interior, it will be better to sell or give it away.

The interior of an apartment for a young family should radiate the boldness of artistic thought. After all, for people full of energy and vitality, an appropriate environment is simply necessary.
This small living space from the architects of the Marcante-Testa studio combines an incredible atmosphere of bohemian art, dark and sometimes even gloomy tones, as well as unique furniture elements and an intelligent zoning system.
A combination of classic furniture and unusual details
The house was built in the 30s of the last century, and the apartment just needed to get a fresh breath and a new look at things.
Attractive living room
The black perforated metal rack, designed by French designer Mathieu Metgot, is an artificial functional method through which artists have achieved a flexible and simple separation of open and closed spaces.
Thanks to the rotating and movable elements, the system offers a unique and modern approach to the harmonious placement of things in the interior.
Cozy modern bedroom
The color scheme and decoration look very bold and interesting due to the combination of muted beige tones of the walls, some shades of blue resin, olive furniture elements and clear white lamps.
Artistic details simply overwhelm the apartment, creating a harmonious combination with elegant modern furniture and light solutions for decorative elements.
Extraordinary artistic details
Comfortable modern kitchen
The work of French designers is the embodiment of light, but bold artistic ideas that will be an ideal solution for a newly-made family apartment. After all, living in an old house in a picturesque area of Paris in a modern elegant living space is the dream of almost every young person.
The interior of the loft-style apartment, the photos of which are striking in their originality. This is Tinderbox House located in a historic brick warehouse in Melbourne, Australia. Breathe Architecture Studio, taking into account the characteristic elements of the former storage of firearms of the XVIII century, developed the aesthetics of the loft around flint, tablecloth and steel striker. Matte black wall tiles reproduce the fabric with characteristic ink, and flinty gray-black accents and black-coated steel fill the living space.
The storage room in which the apartment was organized was intended for the storage of flint, tinder and refractory steel. Such a firearm set inspired architects to create a lively space with an interesting layout and interior. Some details of the old building have retained their historical appearance or have been transformed into a more modern style.
The contrast is made between the fresh, light wood on the walls and the dark elements on the floor. The black color seems to flow over the wood, as if it is burning, and slowly approaches the shade of charcoal. Bright yellow tiles and a fiery red door add sensitivity to the interior.
Loft-style design solutions are not so popular in the world of architecture today. Nevertheless, some studios resort to this style quite successfully, turning old buildings into comfortable and elegant apartments for a comfortable stay.
A tree in the interior of an apartment always looks stylish and appropriate. The proof of this is a unique project for the reconstruction of a house built in 1885, located in one of the districts of San Francisco. It was brought to life by the architectural firm McElroy Architecture for a young married couple.
To create a bright, open space, experts dismantled all the unnecessary partitions, combining the dining room, kitchen and living room areas. Then they dismantled the plank floor in the unfinished attic, resulting in high vaulted ceilings with built-in windows and pendant lights. But their main invention was a suspension bridge made of the resulting wood, which rises above the first floor and connects the bedrooms of parents and their young son.
Would you like to live in such a duplex apartment and have lunch “under the bridge”? We are waiting for feedback!
