Scandinavian, English and shabby chic style seem to be totally incompatible within one interior. But the townhouse we’d like to show you today will prove the fact that these styles can and even should be mixed. You just have to do it properly.
This 3-level townhouse with the total area of 110 square meters is located in a small village of Cambridge not far from Moscow. The exterior of the house is designed in a typical elegant English style, which definitely pre-determined the main concept of the interior. The clients are a young family couple with 2 daughters. For a start the author of the project held a meeting with the father of the family. His ideas clearly showed that the style that really makes him tick is Scandinavian. Later there was a discussion with the mistress, who obviously loved coziness and sweet home textile that are typical features of shabby chic. So, the task was to combine the English exterior, Scandinavian preferences of the host and shabby chic tastes of his spouse.
The first floor of the house includes an entrance hall, a guest bathroom, a pantry and a kitchen open to the living room.
Right from the start, when you enter the hallway, it becomes clear the style is very unobtrusive and pretty simple, without any extra pathos. Combination of 3D surfaces and straight lines in furnishing and doors, a light color scheme and use of common boxes for storage form a nice and stylish combination.
The color scheme of the great room on the first floor is based on shades of 3 predominant colors – gray, beige and white. A grayish kitchen set looks great in the company of white brick masonry and floor tiles in the prep zone.
The dining area is represented by a laconic wooden table and upholstered chairs.
In the lounge zone the walls are just painted gray. This solution is compensated by a light seating group of furniture coupled with a big mirror in a fanciful frame.
The second floor hosts private rooms: a master bedroom, a study and a bathroom.
As you find yourself on the second floor, you immediately realize the style has surely changed, but still goes in line with the general concept of the entire townhouse. Brick masonry, textured parquetry, an asymmetric shelving unit and a stylish wooden desk create purely Scandinavian atmosphere in this work area.
The master bedroom is furnished with just must-haves: a comfortable bed, a soft and cozy rug, a couple of nightstands with bedside lamps atop and a laconic chest of drawers.
The master bathroom is total gray, and a note of elegancy is brought by a white airy top-mounted sink on a wooden countertop.
The third loft floor entirely belongs to the kids.
A sloped roof and a nicely designed sleeping zone create a cozy atmosphere for 2 little princesses.
Opposite the beds, there is a mattress, which plays the role of a playing zone for the kids.
Also, the girls have a bathroom of their own and even 2 sinks for their ultimate convenience.
