Provence Style Apartment
provence style - Elegant and romantic Provence seems so warm and cozy, but difficult to achieve. After all, it is made up of hundreds of small details, and the line between elegance and excessiveness is so thin. But not everything is as complicated as it seems! To show this in practice, we have collected 6 ready-made design projects for apartments in the Provence style. Watch and be inspired!
1. Provence in a corner three-ruble note
Designers Denis Svirid and Anastasia Gudzenko tried to reproduce the atmosphere of the south of France in a three-room Odessa apartment. The impressive square and high ceilings of the new complex in the historic center of the city played into their hands. The tenants had two main wishes - to keep the stove in the living room and to "modernize" the Provence, to make it more laconic and urban.
Light colors and expressive characteristic details were taken as a basis. Here and artificially aged furniture, handmade wicker rugs, deliberately rough textured textiles, as well as forged lamps with wicker baskets and flowerpots. A modern bar counter acts as a dining table, and glass partitions instead of heavy wooden doors.
2. A village tale for grandmother and granddaughter
Designers Olga Anchugova and Lyubov Dolgaya undertook to implement the French style of the interior for their grandmother and granddaughter in Novosibirsk. The style of Provence in the spacious kitchen-living room is set by small flowers and a cozy olive set. The main accent spot is a large cherry-colored sofa with a striped chaise longue.
The apartment is dominated by soft lines and rounded corners throughout, from the countertop to the refrigerator. Details add coziness: an artificial fireplace, a canopy over the bed, air curtains with hooks. Furniture with knobs, carved decor, mesh panels, floor mirrors instead of mirrored doors, classic fabric lampshades - all this maintains the mood.
3. Atypical open plan Provence
The designer Alexander Ponizovkin was faced with a difficult task: to combine the atmosphere of a country house and a modern city apartment. And also - to embody Provence on 60 square meters with an open plan. The kitchen and the living room are combined, and the bedroom is separated by a transparent partition - a real challenge.
That is why the designer paid all his attention to details: natural textures, pastel shades, simple rustic furniture, floral and plant motifs, ceramics and decorations. Even modern materials are completely stylized: for example, laminate flooring for old boards or the retro design of a cooker hood. A bright accent is a vintage turquoise table covered with handmade lace.
4. Bright Provence in a two-room apartment
When developing this project, designer Olga Chebanova wanted to add more rich colors to the delicate pastel Provence and chose blue and orange colors for this. A lot of rough textures, decorative plaster, artificial aging and forged details are used in the decoration of the apartment.
Blue creates a feeling of coolness and spaciousness in the living room, while beige and orange colors bring warmth to the bathroom. The retro collection of built-in kitchen lamps does not stand out against the background of traditional pendant chandeliers with lampshades. The main feature is the ceiling beams, which have been preserved in all rooms.
5. Provence on the tenth floor
In a large Moscow apartment in the Vorobyovy Gory residential complex, we managed to collect all the best not only from Provence, but also from Empire and Baroque. The interior of Olga Bourgeois turned out to be both homely cozy and solemnly pompous. A bright accent - floral motifs are literally everywhere: in textiles, furniture and decor.
Crystal chandeliers are combined with fabric lampshades, while modern technology is hidden in niches and spectacular frames. Even all the dishes in plain sight convey the mood of openwork Provence. Interesting details include a corner window behind romantic curtains and a stove hidden in an imitation of a fireplace stove.
6. Colorful Provence for 33 sq.m.
Elegant furniture, hand-made embroidery, rough bronze details and bright colors combined with floral motifs - all this is intertwined in the project of the designer Galina Yurieva. A small redevelopment in a Moscow apartment made it possible to create the illusion that one room flows smoothly into another - like in a large country house.
Lightly worn white furniture creates a mood and does not overload the interior. Large floral motifs against the bright yellow walls look fresh and graceful. A lot of attention is paid to little things - watches, embroidered paintings, decorative pillows, vibrant flowers and bright curtains.
