PLK12A is a lovely apartment residence that embraces a monochrome colour palette. Designed by Moscow-based architects M17, this interior proves that the best colour is often a lack of colour.

PLK12A starts with a strong concrete foundation which is contrasted with dark wood and black and white accents. This juxtaposition is best observed in the kitchen, where white tiles pop against black grout, while wood countertops warm up the entire space. Natural light is present, but not abundant. Multiple types of pendent lights lend a warmth to the spaces where sunlight doesn’t reach. Oversized sliding doors separate the various rooms, yet still provide a visual connection due to their semi-opaque design. Select pieces of art and furniture complement the home’s architectural qualities.

PLK12A is a gorgeous example of an understated design that makes a big impact.
