An artistic couple shares a modern and stylish space in St. Petersburg. Bold splashes of color and creative furnishings create an awesome space for friends. For a professional couple, the apartment they share should be a reflection of their values: beauty, style, and a little bit of fun. Designers Natasha Janson and Dmitry Kirsanov of I Am Home Studio have created a playful and modern space in this 166 square meter (1786 square feet) apartment that would be sure to help any couple find their own corner of heaven in St. Petersburg. A sociable young couple not only wants to spend comfortable time in their home with each other, but should be able to entertain their circle of friends. The living room design is certainly beautiful, but also provides plenty of seating for friends. A gold tinted coffee table gives the perfect sparkly setting for serving drinks or hors d’oeuvres while overhead lights that dangle on individual cords are another playful addition. The turquoise egg chair is a cozy and create place to relax away from the buzz of a party or just after a long day away from home. While the heavy wood table could easily host an intimate dinner party, it’s also spacious enough to provide a work area for these two creatives. A sunny dining terrace serves more than one purpose as well. The attention to every detail is readily apparent when you realize that even the front hallway has been designed for maximum comfort and style. The open floorplan has the dining area in direct contact with the small kitchen, which includes a splashy red refrigerator and the obligatory chalkboard wall. The uniquely patterned floor tiles create separation between the two areas. It features a creatively textured wall and a cozy ottoman that’s perfect for adding the finishing touches to an outfit — or taking them off once you get home. There’s no question that this cozy hallway would make anyone feel immediately at home. These artsy elements can work because of the neutral color palette that keeps the room from feeling busy or cluttered. In the bedroom, we can also see influences of the couple’s love for art and creativity. But the artistic accoutrements are feminine without being girly. From the bespoke wood panels with its own bold art to the whimsical mounted unicorn head. The designers took into account that often women need more space in the bedroom – for storing clothes, dressing, and their entire routine. That’s why the woman’s side of the room is a bit more spacious. Floor to ceiling mirrors are the only way to get the whole impression of your outfit, so of course they are a requirement here. For those with the luxury of space, a dreamy room for meditation, yoga, and centering can make a huge difference in how you experience your house. The yoga room here is white, bright, and simple with a modern altar that allows anyone to set a dreamy mood with flickering candles and incense. Angel wings give the space even more ethereal appeal. For a couple that works from home, a separate work area with everything you need to get down to business is essential. Spacious desks with comfortable but stylish office chairs create just that area. White tile works with the streaming sunlight to create a space where it’s easy to create throughout the entire year. A bright sofa and fireplace mean welcoming clients into the home is also possible, when necessary. Finally, a cozy bathroom provides the ultimate relaxing retreat. A deep porcelain tub contrasts with the creatively textured wall and natural wood flooring for the feeling of a personal spa right at home.
