It has been a few weeks since I’ve gone through all my bookmarked design sites and pulled interior design ideas and inspiration from them to use on the blog. For the past couple of months, I’ve been posting my own series of entries and relying less and less on what the rest of the interior design blogosphere is doing to generate content on Japanese Trash. And I’m currently working on a new way of focusing my posts around a central idea each week, and I don’t know yet if the concept of Leftovers–something that has been a part of Japanese Trash since the very beginning (the first Leftovers post was on Nov 8, 2010)–will be part of that. So I thought I’d post these latest; who knows, they may be the last.

This Russian apartment, designed by Italians Lazzaro Rabon and Andrei Fabbri, has been floating around the interwebs and is too good not to pick up and post. The key to the interior design here, for me, is the designers’ deft way of mixing neutrals–various greys with some browns plus black and white thrown in–to create an attractive space that has a quiet but distinct liveliness. There’s both refinement and relaxation in these spces, with just the right amount of just the right pieces. One thing that I particularly appreciate is the level of contrast found in each of the rooms; I’m not a fan of using pieces together that are the same hue — solid black dining chairs with a solid black dining table, for example. Without contrast, everything blends together into one mass and there’s absolutely no pulse at all. Enjoy!
