Welcome to our gallery featuring the incredible Lägenhet Apartment in Perm, Russia designed by ALLARTSDESIGN.
This cozy apartment is designed to maximize functionality and space, integrating the more private areas, like the bedroom, into the overall design of the open-concept apartment.
The design is a mixture of modern, contemporary colors with a more traditional Scandinavian twist. Due to the owner’s wants and needs, the small apartment presented a layout problem.
The only two windows were located in the living room and kitchen area, so in order to allow natural light into the bedroom, the walls were removed and replaced with a glass cube.
Sheer curtains can be pulled for more privacy or to soften the light flooding the apartment. A television is nestled in the kitchen’s island and viewable from the living room and bedroom, reducing the need for more space for an additional television or cabinet.
The tiny single bathroom presented another design challenge; the washing machine, dryer, shower, water heater, sink, and toilet. The unsightly water heater was hidden behind the mirrored door.
The washing machine was mounted on a pedestal, taking up the more plentiful vertical space.
The color palette used throughout is bright and airy, with contrasting elements in the furniture, which are simpler to replace as the owner’s tastes change.
This masterpiece proves that you don’t need a lot of space to create a comfortable, light, and utterly functional space with all the storage needed to keep it uncluttered and ready for entertaining.

As we enter the apartment, we are greeted by a long brick hall with mirrored doors. One door leads to the bathroom, another is a large coat closet and houses the washing machine. The third leads into the main living space.
The bathroom may be small, but it is laid out in such a way that the space is maximized. The floor and shower are tiled in natural marble in a rich green-brown tone.
Upon entering the main living space, we turn right and are met by the incredibly modern and minimalist kitchen in white and black. The glossy cabinetry helps reflect light around the room and makes the apartment feel larger.
As we take a step back, we see the way the bedroom is enclosed behind glass, which allows it to feel private but still allows access to the television. The cabinet with the television creates a dividing barrier between the kitchen and entertaining areas.
The bed is set against a faux brick wall that’s been equipped with soundproofing. The warm colors and textiles are a stark contrast to the sheer white curtains, walls, and ashy floors.
With the curtains pulled, much of the light is diffused, and the bedroom becomes a much more private area.
The living room area consists of a large button-tufted sectional and lots of built-in shelving. A patchwork rug warms the area.
The small dining room area is located immediately to the right of the kitchen, across from the living room sectional. House plants and colorful chairs add color back into the mostly white area.
