Yana Prydalna is an interior architect and visualisation artist who mainly designs projects in the Modernist and wabi-sabi style. Although she is still relatively unknown in the design world, she already managed to grasp Imagicasa’s attention with her project Home in Forest.
Under the name Yana Design Home, Prydalna designs projects that are tailor-made for each individual client. She does this in different versions of the wabi-sabi style: rough wabi-sabi and light wabi-sabi. Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy that in recent years has gained popularity in interior design and art. According to this philosophy, everything is imperfect and transcient and that is celebrated. Wabi-sabi interiors are often characterised by a rustic, rough, unfinished materiality.
Prydalna plays with textures and omits the use of colour.
The Home in Forest project also enjoys this style. The renders of Yana Design Home are of such high quality that it seems as if you can step inside. Home in Forest is characterised by a brown, dark grey and beige colour palette. Rough stone walls and wooden beams alternate with traditionally woven lampshades, baskets and carpets. The house is gently illuminated with Led strips hidden behind the mirror and in folds in the walls. On one of the renders we see that the house is surrounded by a pine forest. The forest is a perfect place for this dwelling in which a warm fire appears to be burning permanently. Prydalna plays with textures in Home in Forest and omits the use of colour. This creates a natural hut-like interior that gives peace and quiet and invites you to sit by the fireplace.
