Big Eco-Minimalist House with Scandinavian Spirit
Interior design inspired by beloved Finland, natural materials and a picturesque view opening from huge panoramic windows: this project’s designers created a very stylish country home for a young family couple with two boy kids.
Traveling in Finland, the hosts of this cottage got so excited about local interiors, that this drove them to replicate that atmosphere in their country home. With such a wish they turned to professional interior designers. And they managed to penetrate the house with Scandinavian spirit, but without customary asceticism typical of this style.
The original layout remained practically unchanged: the only first floor included three bedrooms (master, toddler and guest one), two spacious bathrooms, a lounge open to a kitchen with a terrace, a walk-in closet, a laundry room, an entry space with a corridor and a garage.
The designers defined the general style concept of the interior as “eco-minimalism with Scandinavian-style motifs”. This accounts for natural materials, naturalistic colors and the sense of airiness and spaciousness felt in this house.
It was determined to make the kitchen open to the lounge, but with an option of isolation. Hence, the rooms were separated with big sliding glass doors by Rimadesio, Italy.
The dark naturalistic kitchen set is also Italian – made by Poliform, Phoenix collection.
In the lounge area Scandinavian asceticism is brightened up with yellow splashes in home textile, items of décor and furniture upholstery. And the so-called concealed light – LED lamps by Delta Light (Belgium) – coupled with a comfy Italian sofa by Busnelli make the living room even cozier.
The master bedroom, just like the kitchen and lounge zones, features much black color. And it’s not a coincidence: with the help of contrasting dark and light elements the designers added the sense of depth to the interior and emphasized the geometry of the space.
The master bedroom has an exit to a full-fledged walk-in closet designed by Rimadesio. Translucent tinted glass wall of the closet ensures an easy view of clothes on the one hand and erases boundaries between the rooms on the other.
The toddler room appeared to be the lightest and brightest space in the house. Considering very active lifestyle of boys, the interior is also designed in a very lively, dynamic way. The room has a big play zone for active games and a huge world map on the wall. The entire furnishing was custom-made under the designers’ sketches.
The master bathroom is very Scandinavian: arranged in neutral and very light color palette, it has an accent on marble texture of the wall tiles and a beautiful wavy 3D wall panel.
