We have already introduced you to Maria Osminina's strong, refined and minimalist aesthetic on several occasions, and we couldn't resist this design either. In her Time Boundaries concept, she shows that imperfection can be beautiful.
When you see Maria Osminina's lifelike renders, you forget for a moment that we are not admiring real photos of a realised project here, but concepts that she designs. In this visualisation, which the designer calls Time Boundaries, she celebrates the special beauty of imperfect surfaces. She juxtaposes flaking plaster, uneven paint, old parquet floors with modern furniture and art to create an impressive whole. ‘Such decisions are based on subtle nuances and it may seem that it is easy to make such a project, but in fact this feeling is deceiving. Each such apartment has a number of functional tasks and burdening attendant factors. Every time when redeveloping, replacing electrics or deciding to restore lost elements, you have to come up with unconventional solutions that are often unique and applicable only once,’ says Osminina.
Peeling plaster, uneven paint, old parquet flooring next to modern furniture and art makes for an impressice whole.
For the designer, the balance between the original details and verified accents is important. "The feeling that everything worked out by itself, simply and naturally, and turned out, almost by accident, in its place.’ We see subtle colour shades, confident lines and soft light that are emphatically shown off in combination with huge antique oval windows and high ceilings. All in all, her applications and solutions create an overall feeling of space. All elements emphasise and complement each other to create a beautifully balanced whole. Photography by Maria Osminina
