Tell us a little about Studio Reutov Design
Studio Reutov Design was founded in 2008 and is based in Moscow, Russia. Initially, we were only engaged in private interiors (apartments, houses). As a result, we started to grow and started making public spaces, restaurants, and hotels. We started working on Villa projects and now we are actively engaged in the design of furniture, light, and decorative items. Our team consists of 15 people. In 2017, I decided to radically change my vision for design and architecture. I decided to create bright and bold, slightly fantastic interiors which have gained popularity around the world. Today we carry out orders all over the world in countries such as the USA, Italy, Spain, Qatar, the UAE, and others. We treat our work with love and love what we do and want to make the world even more beautiful.
What was your design brief for this apartment?
The apartment owners are a young couple who completely entrusted me with the design of the apartments. They liked my non-standard approach to design. Having taken this project, I decided to create a bold project that will give you the opportunity to forget about the hard everyday life and help you take a break from the noisy metropolis. With light, gentle, slightly heady interior and terracotta-pink walls added originality to the entire design. The abundance of rich natural green shades has created a truly ultra-modern and unique interior transferring us to the southern countries. Filling the air with the smell of flowers and making the apartment tasty not only for the eyes but also for life.
What was your inspiration?
In creating this project, I was inspired by the natural colors of nature, especially Mexico with the traditional architectural elements of Mexico with its bright colors. I wanted to convey the feeling of the southern sun and natural colors. The interior was filled with the smell of flowers and natural colors in a modern creative interpretation.
Any important elements?
One of the important elements in the interior is a cactus. This is a cosmic plant with a unique design. There is not a single cactus. Each has its own shape, shade. In a creative interpretation, I depicted a cactus in the form of columns. They are of different colors and shapes. They are located chaotically and in the most unpredictable places like cacti in a natural landscape. I believe that nature creates a truly extraordinary design. It works skillfully with textures, colors, and shapes and creates only a unique design. With which we must coexist in harmony.
