Lipinka: Modern Home with Personality

View all 16 Photos

Lipinka, a 90 square meter apartment in the heart of Kiev, marries minimal design with cozy and timeless accents that make for a charming two-person home. The living room’s exposed brick wall and fireplace evoke a timeless sense of warmth and comfort while the butter yellow sofa provides a welcome and undeniably stylish contrast. Although the home is entirely clutter-free, it certainly doesn’t lack character; above the cozy window-adjacent chaise is a bookshelf made from vintage suitcases, making for a reading nook that looks like a Pinterest DIY fantasy. Lipinka maintains this subtle charm in the more relaxed bedroom space with a polished tile floor and soft gray area rug, which provide a refreshing departure from the brick accent wall behind the four-post bed. Even the family dog can find sanctuary with a space-saving bed conveniently built into the wall. The luxurious bathroom features a granite shower with glass doors and an elegant floating sink. Despite the fact that it is an interior space, liberally placed floor-to-ceiling windows create a light and airy atmosphere that would make one question the boundaries between inside and out. Quirky yet clean and polished, this home from 2B group has a characteristic charm that offers the perfect balance between past and present in modern design.
