Russian Studio Redesigned With Maximum Comfort And Style In Mind

This Russian Studio apartment comes in at just 430sf but thanks to some creative decorating and a smart use of space it doesn’t feel cramped at all. This slick layout comes to us courtesy of INT2 Architecture, a St. Petersburg-based firm that specializes in making small spaces highly livable. You may remember them from another tiny Moscow apartment we featured not long ago, which showed off a memorable combination of French/Scandinavian and rustic elements that seem to fit together perfectly.

They hit another home run in this studio space. Their approach involved placing a wooden wall along the window, which serves as both storage and a separator between the living space and dining/kitchen area. Bursts of bright color and artsy patterns in the decor help add to the visual interest while making each tiny space within feel defined and unique.

A mix of open shelving and sleek cabinets are set off by the bold backsplash.

The wall stretching from the windows separates the living area and provides a nice place for storage.

Mounted on the opposite side of the wall are mini planters sprouting fresh herbs for cooking and magnetic spice jars, each labeled accordingly.
