Maya Baklan of Neevroremont Studio Designs an Eclectic and Colorful Home For Her Family
Many designers cite personal projects as the most challenging to complete, andKiev-based designer Maya Baklan of Neevroremont Studio awards her own family apartment as the “most complex and longest project” she’s ever worked on. The apartment, which took the designer over a year to complete—for multiple reasons, including shipment delays and the need for extensive soundproofing—is located in the award-winning, multicolored Comfort Town apartment complex inKiev.
When Baklan was unable to find a unit large enough to comfortably accommodate her family of four, the designer decided to combine two units: a three-bedroom and a one-bedroom, to create one large 1,345-square-foot home. Balkan refers to her signature style as “absolute eclecticism” and the designer takes influences as far-ranging as Russian Constructivism, midcentury modernism, Scandinavian minimalism, as well as classical French touches—masterfully layering seemingly incongruous pieces together to create a vibrant, welcoming space full of energy and color that somehow all perfectly works.
