Combining bold colours inspired by typical British interiors together with intricate moldings and symmetrical high ceilings of the quintessential French style, this little villa in Kiev has a lot to say
Located in Kiev, Ukraine, this one-bedroom villa infuses unexpected design combinations to create an energetic mixture of colour, life and celebration. Inspired by the client’s character and personality, the interiors, designed by Bolshakova Interiors, adopted a subdued colour palette with deeper tonal variations used throughout. With traditional architectural detailing combined with a modern use of colour, the result is a home interior that feels clean, light and fresh but also exciting.
Emerald Villa, as it has been named by the interior designers, Bolshakova Interiors, boasts all the necessary rooms, including one bedroom, two bathrooms, a living room adjoined to the kitchen, and a conservatory. Additional amenities were added to the floor plan including a large indoor swimming pool with a hammam and sauna overlooking the garden, as well as a gym.
A focal point of the project is undoubtedly the kitchen with its adjoining living room and dining area. Distinguished by its cocktail bar, the kitchen is an elegant yet unique space which breaks the confines between a functional kitchen and a casual yet intriguing bar. Despite the minor obstacle in sourcing and installing the cocktail bar’s delicate elements, the result is spectacular.
Taking inspiration from both English and French styles, the living room is both cosy and surprising. The bold colour palette with its pops of red, pink and yellow, lends itself to the clients celebrated English character, as an abundance of patterns and differing fabrics blend harmoniously. In contrast, the intricate moldings and symmetrical high ceilings encapsulate a quintessentially French style.
“We knew that the fireplace was going to be a central part to the final design, and we faced a small challenge in trying to find the right spot for it. We had several options to home it until we found its perfect place,” says Nataly Bolshakova.
Echoing its surrounding emerald green, the fireplace complements the home’s interiors while adding another dimension to the space. The fluidity of the marble mirrors and the lit fire resonate with the gold accents featured throughout the room.
Bolshakova Interiors loves to work with materials such as wood, natural stone and metals. Its signature style is clean, light and fresh interiors that are inspired by each individual homeowner, as well as drawing from Nataly Bolshakova’s love of Impressionism, Modernism and Art Nouveur architecture.
