Coral and green are the fresh and friendly colours of choice in this compact modern apartment in Nõmme, Estonia, designed by Ace Of Space. Set against a pure crisp white backdrop, the more colourful home style elements are reminiscent of a summer garden. Muted grass green rugs and brighter leafy greens give the home a natural feel despite the somewhat limited appearance of natural textured materials and potted house plants. The cheerful coral hued pieces work beautifully alongside furnishings and accessories that are picked out in shining metallic gold and copper. The three harmonious tones meld warmly and lift the scheme by introducing joyously unexpected shining moments.
The apartment walls and floor treatments are completely stark. White paint covers each and every internal wall. Bookcases and cabinets are coated in a white finish. Floors are a clean light-reflecting gloss white. The largest pieces of furniture in the room are also free of colour, with the sofa upholstered in soft grey fabric and two comfortable chairs in contrasting ivory.
The first blast of colour hits us from the wall space above the sofa where a series of three pieces of artwork by Anu Samarüütel take pride of place. The small gallery sets the tone and palette for the entire apartment.
Beside the light grey modern sofa, a floor lamp is trimmed with copper, which matches beautifully with the coral tones in the trio of artwork. In front of the sofa, a wooden coffee table adds a little more visual warmth to the scheme, and the nugget of natural tone is picked up in the legs of the two contemporary armchairs.
Opposite the seating area, a white wall mounted unit with copper handles runs beneath the flat screen television. Due to the open plan nature of the home, the lounge merges into a dining area. Here a glass fronted cabinet holds a selection of wine glasses.
The lounge area is defined by a muted green rug, which also adds a touch of cosiness underfoot. Three tiny potted plants form a centrepiece on the round coffee table, and complement the hue of the area rug.
Over in front of a handle-free white kitchen, a set of golden dining chairs encircle a wooden dining table.
The table is set with grey placemats to tie the colour theme of the dining area with the sofa. A decorative vase in the centre holds a floral arrangement that is a purpose picked posy of coral and pale green. Above the table decorations and wine glasses, a petite dining pendant light has a metallic band that matches with the eye-catching dining chairs.
The white kitchen has a minimalistic style, with a countertop in smooth grey and a concealed extractor.
The home entryway is lined with bookcases and cabinets with copper handles.
The white gloss floor treatment that covers the entire open plan living room is present here in the hallway too, and runs on seamlessly into a home office.
In the study, a simple coral settee is the only splash of solid colour in the room. An understated wooden table by the window has been playfully paired with a bright golden desk chair.
A sumptuous grey rug warms the floor by the sofa. A small end table has a neatly integrated magazine rack.
A smart grey dressing stool sits at one end of the white entry hall.
Quirky mismatched door knobs decorate mirrored closet doors.
A coral runner rug leads us into the bedroom.
The built-in dressing table is elegantly topped with a sheet of glass, and a round mirror with a leather frame continues the look of understated glamour.
In the bedroom we find another use for one of the very versatile Kartell Masters chairs, formerly seen used as a dining chair and a desk chair in this apartment scheme. This time the golden design has been utilised as a dressing chair. It could even serve as a modern outdoor chair on a balcony, or in a courtyard or contemporary garden.
The storage in this home keeps everything tucked away neatly.
The door handles are white powder-coated to blend in with the white door finishes.
Inside the bathroom we find many of the same design elements that are implemented elsewhere in the home. A wall hung vanity unit matches the storage cabinets installed in the entry hall and in the lounge beneath the TV, complete with the same copper handles. A large round mirror over the vanity unit, with a brown leather strap frame, is identical to the one in the bedroom. Here the floor is white tile, and the unique faucet is pure white, much like the door handles.
Another piece of artwork by Anu Samarüütel decorates the space above the WC. A coral coloured hand towel matches the hue in the painting, and the palette in the rest of the home.
The faucet in the kitchen is also a pure white coated design.
This cool home comes complete with a little hidden gem too, in the shape of its very own sauna.
