Russian designer Elena Skutova has created a very special atmosphere in this relatively small boy’s room. Designed for two brothers, the room is playful with many elements inspired from nature. The bunk bed in white stained wood is built in the shape of a tree house, with a roof and wooden access ladder. The bottom bed is turned in the opposite direction to the top one because of the reduced height between the two. From a material perspective, the room is treated like an industrial loft, with exposed brick walls and big metal knobs on the furniture. The colors are earthy and quite masculine, with the ceiling as the only white surface in the room. The darker colors and the diffuse light create a very cozy overall atmosphere. The desk and storage structure is built in the same white stained wood and placed on a brick background. Another hint to nature is the use of a cowhide rug in neutral hues. In front of the bed the wall is painted black and a mix of words and objects are drawn on it like with the chalk on a school blackboard.
The pattern of random planks painted in different colors from the top bunk bed is repeated on the doors of the wardrobe and on the details of the mirror.
Hinting to the forest again, a part of the ceiling has a double fake ceiling made in timber, that also serves to filter the light coming from the frame of the ceiling. Two industrial looking pendant lights hang from the ceiling, emphasizing the lofty feel of the space.
A blackboard wall frames the door to the room, like a reminder of the school age of the boys. Various white chalk drawings and writings cover it randomly. Like adding to the chaos, a picture frame made from more irregular parts hangs on this wall, with pictures of the family inside.
