Terracotta is one of the trendiest color for interiors. The word “terracotta” comes from the Italian words for “baked earth”, but it also describes the natural brown-orange color you can find as the accent color in CRAISORULUI Apartment.
Starting from a cozy color palette (with terracotta as “star artist”), the design of CRAISORULUI Apartment is warm and feels like “home”. Combined with cold blue touches to create an interesting contrast effect, the terracotta shade is a shapeshifter when it comes to natural materials such as wood and linen textiles, creating an invinting, joyful space like the end of a hot summer.
Homeowners in Bucharest often lack storage space in their homes. Renovating with this in mind can maximize the usable space and make the home feel less cluttered. In CRAISORULUI Apartment we offered storage solutions like built-ins, tailored to our client and to each room. This custom-built spaces provide maximum storage with a sleek, uncluttered aesthetic.
Extra storage or display space was uncovered by adding the custom made book shelves where there once was an access door to the loggia.
Adding storage to the kitchen streamlines productivity and adds beauty and value to the space through its clean aesthetic. We maximized the room’s storage capacity with floor-to-ceiling cabinets and added a well-organized pantry that is essential for the smooth running of any kitchen.
CRAISORULUI Apartment is the perfect example of using a bold color palette and investing in furniture pieces to use and keep around for the long run, making this uncluttered space one that brings you everyday joy.
