“Creating this project was so much fun. This was project to think out of the box and to manifest how great and limitless a space can be. Being free and have an open mind and heart for every project is my main creative process. I open myself to the unknown."
Besides its meticulous custom furniture and lighting choices, there is a third element added by the great Pepe Calderin that adds another dimension to the oveall design that is authentic and irreverant art pieces. All products in this luxury dsign were meticulously chosen, are of excellent quality and finish, from the top collections of brands like Essential Home, DelightFULL , and the new sensation Mid-Century Club... Welcome to Pepe Calderin's Majestic Penthouse!
Starting with the living room, we see a huge rug in shades of green with snake pattern contrasting with the black of the Marco armchairs and the white of the Fitzgerald modular sofa, two beautiful products from Essential Home line. The glamorous look also features a magnificent geometric statement wall with some beutiful gold lines and a costum fireplace design. However, between the opulant color palette and luxurious furnishings, the star of show are without a question the three sophisticated Botti pendant lamps by DelightFULL that were inspired by the american trumpet player Chris Botti. Considered as atribute to jazz music, this rounded pendant lamp is handmade in brass, and covered in a gold-plated finish.
In the dining room, gold tones predominate in thie beautiful all-white background look. The bespoke furnihings includes a costum design of one of Essential Home's best sellers known as Monocles sideboard, as well as the iconic Collins dining chair. According to Pepe Calderin, this is "space that has no boundaries and has endless possibilities" so he need to add a lighting design that added movement to this look and the Laine suspension fixture by DelightFULL was the perfect choice for the occasion.
Inspired by the iconic era that brought so much culture to the world, this modern ceiling light comes to redefine what mid-century lighting is all about. With its body made of brass and its shade of aluminum, it’s simply poetic and extravagantly scenic.
Dynamic, luxurious, eccentric...Three different qualities that describe Pepe Calderin's fabulous bar and billiard room. Steping away from the neutral tones used in the open concept of the living room and dining area, this dark and robust space it's all about showing the best of the rich black tone in different textures and details. With so much going on thoughout the space, the look needed a lighting fixture that is one of a kind and simple as the same time, a description that matched DelightFULL's best selling Coltrane suspension piece. With a minimalist and industrial feeling to it, Coltrane is a simple suspended ceiling light, handmade in stainless steel, with a gold powder finish. This industrial pendant lighting design is the perfect fit for the most demanding setting.
Going through the master bedroom, we can see a different environment from these common areas we have seen so far. This is a room where simplicity was taken as the main idea to create the overall look. Cleaner tones, without big patterns and colors, and a beautiful statement wall made with marble and wood wwas the perfect background to DelightFULL's famous Galliano pendant lamps. These unique pieces feature a modern, sleek design that will complement the decor in any setting. The other point of interest of this look is the costum made bed design made especially for this project that Pepe incorpated. This furniture design was inspired by the lines of Essential Home's Loren armchair.
White marble, soft textures and light blue tone details is what makes this room design so special that makes you feel like you are in the clouds. The statement of the overall look is DelightFULL's magical Cosmo chandelier, custom made in two different collor shades Designed as a tribute to the mid-20th century race to space, Cosmo modern chandelier is inspired by space, galaxies and the planets that surround us.
Altough it doesn't draw much attention, there is a second ligthing star in place, know as the Billy table lamp by DelightFULL, a functional and fun fixture that every kid will love. Customized in the light blue shade to match the boy's bedroom design vibe, this task lamp is one of DelightFULL’s most versatile pieces that brings out the essence of mid-century. With an extendable arm it can reach almost 24’’, making it the perfect reading lamp since it is very easy to adjust.
Finally, we have the office, a more professional place where you can keep all the household distractions out the door. It's a very spacious room, with two beautiful statues created from scratch on purpose for this project. It also features a gorgeous Scofield suspension piece and two Neil walll design, two high-end pieces from DelightFULL's heritage collection. Its elegance and the fluidity of their shape blend perfectly into the sober modern home design of this space. Dark, modern, mysterius... this home office design by Pepe Calderin is the epitome of design and artistic excellence to boost your inspiration.
Young Student Apartment in Moscow by E.L.F. Interior
MUSIC CAN BE FELT IN THIS WONDERFUL APARTMENT
This two-room apartment is located in a quiet and peaceful area of Moscow. Its lucky owner is a young student who plays the guitar and is passionate about music. E.L.F. INTERIOR design studio, relied on Elena Gladkova (interior designer) and Anton Likhtarovich (photographer) to conceive this project, Polina Rozhkova and Yana Yahina (interior photo stylists).
The Russian designer, studied at Moscow Lomonosov State University and the International School of Design. "I always think about the comfort of my clients, because they will certainly have to experience positive emotions while in their own home, so it is important to take into consideration all preferences of colors, textures, and textures, and it is also important to correctly plan the space. In my work, I am inspired by works of art, I love the fleeting mood in the paintings of the French Impressionists and the power of the Italian Renaissance artists, classical music and jazz, films by Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman."
- Elena Gladkova
The apartment consists of only two rooms, but contains the spaces of a more traditional apartment, kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom, but works in open space, since there is no wall dividing the kitchen from the living room, for example. It is a young and modern residence, cozy and functional. The harmony of all the elements chosen, such as textures, colors, inspirations and functionality, make this a very special apartment. The inspiration was based on this young man's passion for music, and there are many decorative points alluding to music, both in the living room and in the bedroom.
Starting with the living room, which connects to the kitchen, where minimalist style reigns. Very neutral colors were used in general, ending with some strong color details to contrast and balance the project. The use of straight and simple lines is also clear in this room, bringing a more modern and younger look as needed. Opting for this type of project is not always easy, as the young person is looking for a little bit of everything in such a small room that has to be functional. It has to serve as a dining, leisure and study space and, everything was very well achieved, each corner with its function very well represented. To do justice to her passion for music, Elena chose the lamp Botti Suspension lamp from DelightFULL
BOTTI SUSPENSION by DelightFULL
Botti modern chandelier instantly takes us into a music concert starring Chris Botti. The mid-century lighting design was inspired by the American trumpet player as a tribute to jazz music. With a structure handmade in brass and boasting a sophisticated gold-plated finish, this modern ceiling light showcases the high-quality craftsmanship for which DelightFULL is best known for. Its unique shape and design make it the perfect hanging lamp to display on a mid-century modern living room
The room, in dark tones and dark wood contrasts with the ocean blue chair and the accompanying yellow light. This simple room is composed of the sleeping area, her small closet, and the bathroom. The world map on the white wall represents the dream of traveling around the world that is very present in young people's mentality, the belief that everything is possible and that there are no barriers. The gray brick wall takes us to the street, to the simplicity of life, to a more rustic side
