For a young family of four, the Prostornina team planned a single-family house interior design project. The house was purchased in the third extended construction phase. All rooms together cover an area of 320 m2.
The common thread in interior design were the soft semicircular shapes and the architecture of the house itself. The interior designers didn’t want to overshadow the architecture but upgrade and emphasize it with the right choice of materials and furniture elements. Bright color tones, technical stone in the look of “Bianco Carrara” marble, warm walnut wood and elegant gold details predominate. A large part of the interior are also real gorgeous plants.

THE ENTRANCE AREA
The interior design concept of an elegant home is shown as soon as you step in the bright entrance area, dressed in marble ceramics. Clean entrance area is functionally designed for the needs of the young family, and the storage space for clothes and shoes is hidden behind a mirror next to the upholstered bench. Double glass doors have a windbreak function and separate the entrance from the living areas of the house, while giving a view on the rich gallery and the semicircular stairs.
The staircase is designed in a semicircular shape with a glass railing and dressed in warm walnut parquet that continues on the first floor, the living room and bedrooms. Many glass surfaces allow the passage of natural light into the interior. An interesting feature in this part of the house is the large green ficus, which represents a family tree.
THE LIVING SPACE
The living room is large and open, designed as a gallery space with a double-height ceiling. The floor is covered with walnut inlaid parquet, which was custom made for the client. The elegant living room interior design is emphasised by a rich fireplace carved in marble look stone and with a large bookcase with a ladder. Here, the family exhibits travel souvenirs, family photographs, books, and sentimental objects that mean a lot to them. An interesting element is also a handmade cabinet with a challenging relief design that mimics the pattern of the inlaid parquet.
The kitchen with the dining area is designed as a large bright space with plenty of workspace and storage space. The storage area, accessible from the far left corner of the kitchen, is hidden behind the cabinets. The wine bottles are displayed in a walnut wooden niche which brightens up the clean blue surface of the kitchen cabinets. The kitchen island and a unique handmade table are also made of warm walnut wood, and the counter is covered in a marble look technical stone. The only television in the house here allows a family to watch cooking shows right from the kitchen island. This is also the main place for preparing meals and socializing with friends and family and good food and drinks.
Parents bedroom apartment is located on the ground floor and is designed as a comfortable and intimate space. It is divided into a bedroom, a wardrobe and a bathroom, and all three rooms are connected by a large double glass door that allows natural light to pass into the entire interior. Bright colours and warm walnut parquet predominate in the room. The bed, nightstand and chest of drawers are custom designed and made. The common element that connects all three parts are white metal legs, which also continue as a drawer handle and then into a beautiful leather detail on the bed’s back.
The children’s room is located on the first floor and unites a sleeping and playing area with a private bathroom. It is designed as a bright room made of soft shapes and it’s shared with both children, which encourages them to learn to share and adapt.
