Today we’re welcoming you to eastern Europe, an apartment situated in the capital of Lithuania – Vilnius. I don’t think I’m being biased here, but I think there’s a lot of very talented designers in Lithuania, or maybe it’s because I sympathize with a similar interior style that’s popular in Lithuanian interiors. My nation tends to like a sharp modern, Scandinavian/modern, or sophisticated classic interiors. You can rarely find an apartment with crazy, or colorful design details because the lifestyle in Lithuania is more reserved and people tend to turn to serene neutrals or muted pastels and this interior perfectly captures the essence of that feeling. This apartment is as usual here – not very spacious, so the designer Normundas had to think creatively to fit all that’s required into space while making it look aesthetically pleasing to the eye and also ergonomically planned.
Apartment owners formed the task by demanding some structural changes to the old plan, therefore there were a lot of changes with the overall look not only in the design but in the plan as well. The previous spacious living room was divided by a multi-functional shelving unit that broke the space into two zones – the living room and the parent’s bedroom and created a spacious storage unit. The bathroom was moved to the old wardrobe/pantry room whereas there was a kitchen designed in its place. The previous kitchen was turned into a simple dining room. By choosing to remove the storage room, the designer still managed to keep the same volume of storage but in the newly planned closets, that are strategically laid out all over the apartment. The hall, bathroom, and kitchen walls were covered with hazel colored panels, creating an optically separated feeling to another part of this interior. Bleached oak and grey color scheme complements lilac combinations in the living area, colors in other rooms are mainly muted pastels or neutral-natural shades. The child’s room and the bedroom are dominated by blue tones, to create a serenity and calmness illusion. Take a look at this serene and simple interior and enjoy the rest of your day.
