That’s Greek to Me

Table and dining chairs are solid teak wood (from D-Bodhi) and chairs are upholstered with buffalo skin. Kitchen cabinets are custom made (Moscow). Pendant light is from MW-Light (Germany).


Interior designer Anna Kovalchenko had a unique problem to solve: her clients wanted their apartment to reflect their love for travel and remind them of their favorite destinations — but the interpretation could not be too obvious. Greece was one favorite, says Kovalchenko, adding, “We chose a blue-and-white primary color palette for the kitchen, which is so typical for many Greek villages and towns.” Streamlined high tech kitchen cabinets and a steel backsplash were softened with natural wood and warm metals, like the brushed brass chandelier above the table. Just right!
