An Eclectic Ukrainian Apartment for an Artist & Her Family

A creative, young family with an artist mom desired an eclectic space that expressed their way of life. The family worked with SVOYA STUDIO on their 100-square-meter (1076-square-foot) apartment located in Dnipro, Ukraine that now consists of a spacious open living room, dining room, and kitchen, along with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The design plan incorporated natural materials and various textures with white walls as the backdrop for artist Anna-Maria Shmorgoner’s (the lady of the house) paintings. Rustic wood floors are juxtaposed with minimalist white cabinets and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.
