But at the same time the majority would like to see their homes spacious enough, not cluttered with furniture and decor, full of space and freedom of movement. But how to combine these criteria with the concept of “intimate atmosphere”? For all lovers of modern style, advocating “a comfortable minimalist”, contemporary style private house design project in two stories can be inspiring outlook for their own achievements. Interesting designs, skillful selection of the color palette and the ergonomic layout of the furniture will give the ability to look at the traditional functions of living spaces from another view.
The living room shares the ground floor area with kitchen and dining room. The living, located at the panoramic windows, has a very cozy and comfortable (in terms of the layout of furniture) place. Furnishings of the seating segment is laconic, but it is comfortable and convenient for family get-togethers, both as for receiving guests. In the daytime you can sit by the window with a book.

The space of the first floor retains a feeling of spaciousness and freedom. Chatting of households that are located in different areas is also possible. For example, the hostess can take care of a child who watches television in the living room and or eats in the dining room while prepares dinner.
The basis of kitchen space design became the harmony of “cool” and “heat”. The white gloss surfaces and shine of stainless steel brings a slight chill into the kitchen environment. The natural wooden shades warms up atmosphere of the functional areas.

Table segment is a logical continuation of the kitchen and is zoned from it conditionally, only with the boundaries of furniture. The snow-white finish blends with dining furniture and fittings in wood tones. Dining area is separated by interior walls, which is a convenient storage system for dishes, cutlery and other accessories that may be needed to organize meals. Due to the fact that the partition is not a blank one, and the light from the dining area falls into the common space giving the ability to monitor what is happening in other segments of the first floor.
The spacious dining table with beautiful natural pattern of tabletop and original designed chairs became a focal center of the dining area. Composition of hanging lamps with clear glass cover, which not only provides the necessary light level dining room in the dark, but also brings the spirit of modernity effectively completes the image of the area for meals.
