A couple in Kiev, Ukraine were empty nesters and wanted to finally create a house all their own. To make their dream happen, they hired Nelly Prodan Studio, who worked in collaboration with Krill Konstantinov, to design a light-filled home that had a natural feel. Using off-whites, warm woods, and black accents, the house evokes a cozy modern space the couple desired.

Working with Ukrainian craftsmen, most of the interior is custom-made. Double-height ceilings in the main living area are lit by five lights from David Trubridge. A three-sided fireplace is the main focal point for the living room, dining room, and hallway and it’s covered with dark schist tiles.

The kitchen was custom-made and is mostly covered in dark wood veneer giving it a streamlined appearance.
