Making the most of limited space, Dodonova, who is head of interior design practice Anna Casa, used sumptuous textures and dramatic lighting, with splashes of colour, and carefully chosen ornaments and sculptures used to create moments of drama in an otherwise neutral colour scheme.
An open-plan living area is decorated in neutral tones with tactile touches from cushions by Fendi Fabrics and a rug by Top Floor. To add character, Dodonova used bold accessories including a dramatic Plong Athletic Sculpture from Anna Casa, which is given pride of place at the centre of the room.
‘I love the neutral colour palette that runs throughout the home,’ says Dodonova. ‘It makes adding bright colours, bold accessories and stand-out art to the rooms really easy: it makes a fantastic base coat to a project.’
The brown leather-upholstered central table and side table in the living areas were chosen to contrast with the softer textured and light-coloured sofa, which comes from Fendi’s Contemporary Collection, and these pieces also bring out the darker shades in the room. A custom-made TV and fireplace unit is finished in leather, wood and matt lacquer, giving what Dodonova calls ‘that extra glam feeling’.
‘We had a lot of fun designing this room and wanted it to have a sense of playfulness with the furniture and objects whilst maintaining a luxurious continuity throughout the apartment.’
