There are many of things that we change in our home constantly to give it a new, more vibrant look. Even when it comes to the design of a new home, the focus is always on the walls, color scheme, style, spatial arrangement and décor. But the floor and the ceiling are left largely unaltered and the choices are more about practicality rather than aesthetics. But this smart apartment in Lithuania takes an entirely different approach with the floor playing the role of the protagonist. Designed by DO Architects, The Apartment has a floor in white concrete plaster that has embedded marble, granite and traventine pieces. The composition is truly unique and sets the tone for a sophisticated and polished home.
This is an apartment where dark color is a rarity and you will have to search long and hard to find bright pops of color. The lower level of the apartment contains the living area, kitchen and dining with the floor and décor in pastel hues bring a sense of brightness to an otherwise neutral and monochromatic setting. Wooden walls and white drapes add to the sense of coziness while smart storage units and shelves tuck away any mess with ease.
The tough textures of the walls and other décor pieces stand in contrast to the floor that feels like a work of art and each stone piece embedded in here is perfectly placed to make the right visual impact. Natural concrete stairs and a nifty skylight complete this exquisite Lithuanian home. [Photography: Norbert Tukaj]
