9 Modern Apartment Interior Design Ideas 2024-2025
In this article, with a selection of photos of new products from the portfolio of ViraArt-Stroy (Moscow), we will talk about modern ideas and new trends in the design of an apartment space, fashion styles and colors. Read, watch and be inspired!
1. Duet of wood and stone
The theme of ecology and proximity to nature is the main one in interior design for 2024-2025. Therefore, it is not surprising that mainly natural materials or realistic artificial copies are chosen for the design of apartments.
An ultra-fashionable tandem for the residential interior of an apartment in a metropolis is a duo of wood and stone. It will add aesthetic value and comfort to the atmosphere. And the accent walls will cope with the role of the interior dominant in such a space. They can be decorated with eco-themed textured wallpapers or large-format stone-like ceramic tiles, and are also equipped with LED contour lighting.
Accent walls will decorate the TV area, become the perfect backdrop for a sofa decorated with decorative pillows, and add a unique charm to the kitchen interior.
2. New Japandi interior style
The list of popular apartment design trends 2024-2025 includes a new Japandi interior style, the name of which combines two words – Japan and Scandi.
Hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian
As the name implies, it is a minimalist trend that combines the features of Japanese and Scandinavian styles. Like other viable hybrids, the style is characterized by extraordinary novelty and strength, allowing it to quickly gain popularity.
Unfinished natural stone slabs imitating a cave wall, molded concrete furnishings, blown glass in the form of shades for ceiling lights, as well as traditional Japanese tableware and wabi-sabi decor will help to create the right atmosphere for the apartment in the spirit of Japandi.
At the same time, it is important that the interior with such details is not overloaded, because the characteristic features of Japandi are improved ergonomics, functionality and a philosophy of conscious consumption. And you can add zest to the project due to a bio-fireplace with live fire.
3. Art spaces in loft style
The statistics of our projects show that in 2024-2025. loft style regains its lost popularity. And this is not surprising, because unusual and charismatic loft interiors easily turn into stylish art spaces by complementing them with author’s art objects.
Designer decor will make the interior of the loft-style apartment unique and emphasize the delicate taste of the owners. The most practical and creative options are large-format photo panels and posters with artistic processing.
They can be presented in a traditional form (frame, glass, strict baguette) or printed on canvas, and then fixed on a stretcher. But you shouldn’t hang such works on the wall – it’s better to just put them on the floor or on a bench. This will make the atmosphere ultra-fashionable and will allow, if desired, to move art objects to another place, changing the interior.
Bright designer furniture
Bright pieces of furniture also fit perfectly into the loft. It can be an unusual designer chair or a compact chest of drawers – the effect of the presence of such a thing in the setting will be impressive in any case. But when choosing an accent, you need to take into account the style of the interior, the color scheme, the purpose of the room, and, of course, the overall design concept.
Another option for artistic decoration of the loft is graffiti on the accent wall in the bedroom. The grunge texture of a mural applied to a light-colored concrete wall will be best combined with curved neon lights, ceiling beams and aged brick wall trim.
Creative mess is also part of the aesthetics of the rebellious freedom-loving loft. And therefore, a squat bed, linen linen to match the fresco, even in a casually disassembled form, will be perceived as part of the design of the room.
4. Textured backlit panels
The more complex the lighting, the more opportunities to create the right atmosphere in the room. The most popular for apartments is multi-level light with local illumination of functional areas.
In the bedroom, an LED strip is chosen for her, which is suitable for flush mounting. Such illumination allows to show the relief of wall decoration or textured decorative panel to the maximum. And when placed along the perimeter of the ceiling, it allows you to visually increase the height of the room, emphasize the configuration of the room, and support the design of a multi-level structure. And instead of table lamps, it is better to choose unusual pendants – they will provide a pleasant subdued light and leave the table top of the bedside table free.
5. Open shelving partitions
The open layout of the public part of the apartment has been relevant for more than one season, and an up-to-date design technique will help to correctly implement it.
To preserve air, volume and space, designers advise zoning the space conditionally with the help of furniture. This technique allows not only to visually isolate some part of the studio space, for example, the kitchen-dining room area, but also to form functional segments as organically as possible.
In the interior of the apartment in the English Quarter residential complex shown in the photo, the guest area is formed by three sofas and a carpet, the kitchen is separated by a high open shelving, and a glass console with a metal frame cuts off the traffic area.
And in this large-scale project of a two-level apartment in the Moscow Residential Complex “Life Botanichesky Sad 2”, an open shelving not only zones the kitchen and living room, but also passes as a connecting vertical through the interfloor ceiling, paired with a designer chandelier on cables. On the shelves of the rack you can place beautiful figurines and vases, volumes of your favorite books and stylish framed posters.
6. Sophisticated dark gray
Every few years, the wind of fashion changes brings us amazing color discoveries and seemingly long-familiar shades and palettes take on a new meaning.
Moon indigo color
In 2024, a dark blue-gray shade with the romantic name “lunar indigo” quickly burst into the interiors of living spaces, captivating designers and customers with its unusual and mysterious beauty. This color is best suited for the design of men’s offices, but is also found in the design of the kitchen and living room.
Shade of purple velvet
Another variation of dark gray with a touch of purple is called “purple velvet color”. This year, our designers used it in the living rooms, kitchens and children’s rooms for teenage boys.
A rich dark shade in the interior can be an accent wall and furniture, and lighter textiles, as well as beige or white background wall decoration, will help to balance the palette.
7. Black and white graphics
Monochrome interior in shades of gray soothes, unifies interior design elements, looks stylish and modern. In such a space, a maximum of one or two light accents are allowed, as if returning to reality from the world of black and white cinema.
To add expressiveness to monochrome, designers are advised to implement one of the most relevant decorating techniques – graphic black strokes. They can be in the form of track lighting systems, in the form of spectacular accessories or wall decor.
Furniture with black details is no less in demand: frame, legs, fittings. In contrast to the light gray or white surroundings, such elements look unusually impressive and make the interior graphic.
8. Radiant white
In 2024-2025 the background white finish of the walls and ceiling, as well as the facades of kitchen furniture and built-in wardrobes, retains its relevance.
There are several advantages to this approach:
- white expands the space and enhances the illumination of the premises;
- overall white furniture to match the walls becomes almost invisible against their background;
- accent colors gain maximum juiciness.
Mirrored walls will help to further enhance the radiance of whiteness. In the hallway, this technique completely compensates for the lack of light, and the faceted mirrors playing with glare will add a touch of luxury.
9. Some classics
Neoclassical interiors always strike with lightness and aristocratic charm. Antique and artificially aged furniture fits perfectly into it, which allows you to create spaces with a family history and a feeling of a country noble estate in urban apartments.
In the project shown in the photo, our designers used upholstered dining chairs with wicker backs and patina effect, wooden tubs with flowers, classic chandeliers and a “grandmother’s” cupboard. The result was very pleased with the owners of mature age – representatives of the target audience of the neoclassical trend.
