NIGHT FOX DESIGN: INTERIOR DESIGN WITH CLEAR MIND AND WARM HEART

Thu, 04/01/2021 - 13:04

Although still young, Night Fox Design studio has already mastered the most important part of creation of flawless interiors and architecture: clear creative vision, skill for cooperation and communication with clients, suppliers and subcontractors alike, and strive for the best solution to the project on hand. We talk to architect Nikolina Sergieva, founder of Night Fox Design, to learn more.

What the good interior of 2021 looks like, in your opinion? 

In 2020 the idea of what is "normal living" changed dramatically. It is too early to say whether it will have a positive or a negative effect on interior design, but the fact on the ground is that people stayed at home more and were a lot less outside. This fundamentally changed the way they looked at their own homes and their lifestyles. In 2021, the home office is increasingly becoming a part of residential interiors. This is probably clients' most popular new demand. Home office, however, has to meet many requirements: to be quiet, nice, sunny, airy. 

2021 will be as challenging. The aim for cosiness and easy maintenance will be a dominant trend in residential interior design. Together with the trends that defined interior design in recent years, this suggests a more minimalistic approach to the task. However, Bulgarian clients consistently look for more colourful solutions. Contrast colour compositions are among the top trends that inspire me this year. 

Quality and timelessness remain the most important factors for an interior, and the furniture, materials and accessories market is full with options. Similar pieces of furniture can be found at very different prices; this is why knowing the market is invaluable. The current dynamics of pricing and supply are very challenging. Being aware of the market and following closely all the changes is crucial. We should always remember that we operate and should fit within a set budget.

What is the most important creative step when you design a new space? 

To understand the person in front of me. When a designer tunes to the most important thing - their understanding of people - the rest of the project is a lot easier. Often clients are unaware what exactly they want, but with a couple of well formulated questions I always manage to find in their soul the interior design that I look for. The rest is a process that flows like a river. Initially as a slow flow, with some questions. Then it gradually picks up speed on the drawing board until it reaches its bank with the final product - an interior that excites and makes people smile everyday, because they inhabit it. 

What do you aim to achieve at all cost when you work on an interior? 

A good interior and quality realisation. I am a stickler for this, at all costs: endless visits to stores, sleepless nights... Interior design is a passion and a lifestyle, you should put yourself in it, otherwise it will be a loss of time. I am stickler for quality of construction services. I cannot stand project realisation mistakes or badly-done work. People who work with me are aware of this. They are also sticklers in their job to whom I can trust. 

What was the most interesting and challenging project you worked on in the past year? 

The reconstruction of a mid-20th century house. The project required both interior and architecture knowledge. When building reconstruction is considered, you first need to visit the site. You cannot solve such property's many problems on your computer alone. The building in question has an area of 150 sq.m, with a living room at ground level, two offices on the second floor and two bedrooms on the third floor.

The biggest achievement of a project is to adapt an old building to the needs of modern people. I remember all of my projects with the people - I have done each of them for someone. While I am speaking about this house I see the young family that will inhabit it (the work is ongoing). I see their desires, dreams and ideas for their new life in the old new house that will roof their future. 

How do you guarantee to yourself and your clients that the project created on the "drawing board" will materialise in the best possible way "in real life"? 

Drawing board and real life go hand in hand. Always. A project should be achievable. The selection of furniture, floorings, upholstery and even the tiniest details works in harmony with the scheme given to the contractors. For me it is important to always be on site when an element in the project is being realised - from walls destruction to cleaning and setting everything in place when construction work is over. 

Author's supervision is the most valuable thing an architect or an interior designer can give you. It shows the designer's respect towards their work and clients. For me each project is like a child that you teach to walk - if it misses even one of the important steps, it will never be good enough. Here we are back to attitude towards people. When I design a residential interior, I create a space for a family. These grey walls should become a home, not just a design and a beautiful visualisation. They should be charged with the spirit of the people who have trusted me and I am obliged to answer their expectations. I cannot allow myself to create a project that has nothing to do with reality.
