Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: This is a design project of an apartment for ourselves. [They are the designers behind To Taste, a design studio.] Here, we tried to realize all the bravest ideas and combinations of colors and materials, which we like so much. The industrial style and dark colors apartment make it an incredibly cozy space and wonderful for living here.

Brick walls, dark blue colored ceiling, exposed copper piping, aged mirrors, and metal — all of these create an atmosphere that fully reflects its residents. And also one thing! This apartment was designed not only for humans, but for our two lovely dogs!

We love to travel and we bring something from every trip, always adding some new things and details to this interior. So the apartment lives, it changes, and becomes more and more authentic and extremely cozy, all as we love!

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Brutal loft home with a lot of details

What is your favorite room and why? Of course it is the living room with kitchen! We spend most of our time here. We work, eat, play with dogs, make some sport, cook at this space!

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? Last big thing was a set of new perfect counter stools for our dominant huge table, which is situated in the middle of the common space.

Any advice for creating a home you love? In our opinion, don’t be afraid to experiment and get comfortable and cozy living for yourself.
