Describing an apartment as â€œrusticâ€� often evokes images of wood cabins, lodges and otter dams outside. How can you take the serenity and warmth of a wood cabin, and inject it into an inner-city apartment? This stylish design by Anton Medvedec shows how a rustic, wood-panelled design can look both stylish and modern. Using high, full-length wooden panels and flooring with warm oak tones, this apartment yokes serenity and simplicity together in several seamless space transitions. Slatted partitions and white-walling add a feel of the industrial, and slim-line touches elegance. Marble tiling and sleek furniture add a contemporary feel, while Star Wars figurines give cheek to a simply luscious living area.
A full-length wooden floor first greets the visitor in the lounge, matched by wooden feature and slatted partition walls. High, stone-coloured curtains add light with a great view, while extensive black cabinetry gives the space a modern feel. Magnetic black hanging lights add eccentricity.
Throughout the home, personal elements begin to make themselves known. Star Wars decor hide in nooks, crannies and corners;
finer table leg framing shows an elegance of line; filled bookcases and wine glasses example a taste of the sublime. Long, drawn out surfaces make the space vast and luxurious, while different types of wood materials introduce an industrial feeling.
Throughout the apartment, design details reflect a meeting between the natural and the man-made. In the kitchen, a white ceramic bench kisses a wooden breakfast table, the tiled and wooden floors dividing beneath them. The home office joins a wooden and black table together, with a metallic table foregrounding the wooden feature wall. The corridor shows both the monochromatic tiling, slatted wooden partitions and bamboo feature wall, while a Stormtrooper watches.
Floor-to-wall wooden panelling in the bedroom creates a cosy aura in the bedroom, made fresh with plant life beside the bed. Here, slim fixtures such as the television, standing lamps and industrial-hued bedding carry on the industrial lodge theme.
Wooden walls, floors and details act as the hero, creating cohesion between spaces and warmth wherever they lead. Corridors and walk-in wardrobes clothed in top-to-toe wood stand framed by white walls.
Wooden elements in the bathroom are hinted at amongst shafts of tile and marble. Wide mirrors reflect clean white ceramics, the chrome fixtures harking to the industrial. The ensuite features a full-length textured black granite wall, reminding visitors of the Stormtroopers inside.
