Each measuring in at just under 40 square metres, these three apartment interiors in Odessa, Ukraine, offer up inspiration for three different personality types. Our first tour takes us into a sophisticated home with a bronze framed glass wall bedroom design, unique modern furniture ideas and an undeniably luxurious kitchen design–despite its small proportions. Our second stop is made at a simple, youthful and robust apartment interior designed for renters, with another glass wall bedroom design that borrows light from a multifunctional living room. Colour seekers may appreciate our final featured interior, where rich colour accents add a dash of the unexpected. Floor plans included at the end of each tour.

This sophisticated living room belongs to a 35 square metre one bedroom apartment, located in a multi-storey residential complex. The low-backed design of a stone grey modular sofa makes the small area appear open and therefore more spacious.
Minimal amounts of furniture, pared back decor and a limited materials palette allows emphasis to fall on the remaining high-end elements and a seaside view. Thanks to the glass wall bedroom, the oceanside panorama flows unobstructed across the full width of the apartment, creating an instant wow factor upon entering the home.
A unique faucet adds a lustrous copper accent to the pure white kitchen island.
Inside the minimalist bedroom, a custom-made bed slots beneath a run of floating storage.
A unique bathroom sink gives the all-white bathroom an interesting focal point. LEDs highlight the floating characteristic of a low, wall mounted vanity unit.
A small dining table set overlaps the change in flooring, standing across both white tile from the kitchen and the lounge’s solid pine plank.
A small workspace is set up inside of the bedroom, with a simple floating desk and a coordinating white swivel chair.
Inside the bathroom, a modern pedestal sink and round vanity mirror are smoothly matched by their identical diameter.

Our third small home tour in Odessa, Ukraine, takes place in a 35 square metre apartment. The clients requested a subtle, monochrome decor scheme but brief moments of colour made the final cut. Burgundy sofa upholstery visually warms the small lounge, and defines it from the closely neighbouring dining area.
The living room TV is tucked in next to the double workspaces. A repositionable TV wall bracket allows it to swing out to face the sofa, or stay angled toward the kitchen or dining area.
The small kitchen is broken into two walls of full height dark grey units and a contrasting wall of light beechwood base cabinets and uppers. A charcoal grey ceiling panel bridges the kitchen, connecting the darker elements.
A burgundy vanity stool adds a rich note to the makeup table, and links back to the living room accent colour.
Laundry equipment is housed within the compact bathroom. A unique bathroom vanity light spotlights the basin.
Textured tiles stylishly darken the lower third of the bathroom and engulf the bathtub, whilst the upper walls are kept light and bright.
