The main bedroom contains a Palette desk by Jaime Hayon, a vintage chair from Repeat Story, a pink table lamp from Entler Studio, and a pink Roly Poly armchair by Faye Toogood. On each side of the bed, the Flowerpot table lights are by Verner Panton, while the decorative rug on the wall above the headboard is from Ferm Living.

To reflect the Soviet influence in a contemporary way, Alexandra put silver handles on the kitchen cabinets. She also chose lace curtains, as well as chrome-finished vintage furniture. “My favorite room is the main living area since it combines different zones in a relatively limited space, making it cozy,” Alexandra says.

The dining nook is furnished with the Mezcla table by Jaime Hayon, which is surrounded by three Cesca Chairs by Marcel Breuer. Above them hangs the P376 pendant by Kastholm & Fabricius. At the kitchen counter are Pavilion stools by Anderssen & Voll.

“I decided to use one color, light gray, for both the walls and the ceilings,” Alexandra adds. “The idea was to make the space even and smooth, and to put more emphasis on the design elements, the furniture, and the decor.”

Blending Scandinavian and constructivist references, the designer has created a unique identity for this timeless apartment. “It is a unique space that bridges the times from past to modern,” she concludes.

⚒ Do It Yourself

Pick one main neutral color to create a cohesive look. In this apartment, the founder of Workshop Studio chose light gray as the main theme, adding colorful accents with a few pieces of furniture such as the orange bed.

Add some curves to bring in warmth. Alexandra Potapova designed a circular door frame between the living area and the bedroom to soften the lines of the apartment. You could create the same effect in a simpler way using a round rug or seat, such as the Roly Poly armchair.

Freshen the space with plants. When living in an urban environment, introducing flowers and plants in your home is a way of bringing a little bit of nature inside for a more lively and energetic feel.
