Gray and Black Indulgence: Indulgent Bachelor Pad in Kiev


The design rules for most modern homes and those for a bachelor pad often see to be at odds with one another. And the most obvious of differences comes in the form of the colors used for the backdrop in each of these spaces. In modern family homes, it is often light, neutral colors like white, light gray, brown and beige that set the mood both in public and private spaces. In the bachelor pad, it is black, deep grays and other darker hues that make a grand statement. And this seems to be the case inside the gorgeous ‘For Gentleman Only’ apartment in Kiev that feels both sophisticated and relaxing.

Designed by Alta Idea Design Studio, the apartment strikes the perfect balance between masculinity, inviting ambiance, refined elegance and a touch of luxurious panache. The balance of elements from a visual perspective is just captivating as dark ceiling and floors combine with deep gray walls, exposed brick accent features and minimal modern décor to shape the setting. It is the presence of indoor plants and beautiful wall art pieces that adds bright color to an otherwise contemplative space that is edgy and engaging.

Psychologists have proven that shades of black have a positive effect on the psyche, and it is much easier to relax and have rest in this interior. For those who have no prejudices on the matter, the most enveloping and unique interiors are created…
