Indoor Patio and Modern Décor: Moscow Apartment by Alexey Nikolashin

Indoor Patio and Modern Décor Moscow Apartment by Alexey Nikolashin 01


This Moscow, Russia, apartment boasts a thoroughly modern interior with more than a few quirky touches in a design by Alexey Nikolashin. Against a coolly contemporary palette of black and white, coupled with skilled use of sliding glass panels, the space appears larger than it is — and also seems to meld indoors and outdoors. Look at that neat rock-floored “nook” that gives the owner an indoor “patio” with added effects from a flat-screen TV projecting natural images…all of which can be curtained off from the master bedroom by night. That “outdoor” area segues neatly into a compact dining table and chairs, which in turn are only steps from a convenient kitchen island with handy stools for extra seating and lots of storage, all within easy reach.


A long rectangular wall includes bookshelves, fireplace, and entertainment center; behind white-trimmed sliding glass doors is a bathroom featuring a deep soaking tub, rectangular sink, and a wall of mirrors that makes the absolute most of a small space. Décor is minimalist but inviting: shining tables, soaring chrome lamps, plush cream-colored couches and coffee-toned pillows. By day, illumination comes from windows that allow tons of natural light; by night, light is even part of the décor (check out that glowing rock trim beneath the entertainment center). Pale gray and charcoal are soothing choices for the master bedroom platform bed; sleek bedside tables and lamps provide convenience without clutter. All-modern, with a casually easy living plan: that’s this Alexey Nikolashin design in Moscow.
