Vladimir, Marina and their 2 children moved in their first very own apartment last March, right after a extended period of renting dwellings in different districts of the city. Their ultimate choice was an definitely untouched, newly-developed apartment with windows on the sunny side and a park see.
The overall decoration process – from 3D-modelling up to finishing touches – took 6 months. By the way, most of this time was invested on mere waiting for furnishings and appliances, which have been ordered from Europe. The interior design and style was planned by Vladimir and Marina on the ground of appropriate World wide web-internet sites. As for the style notion, it can be referred to as a mixture of contemporary eclecticism of Parisian lodgings with the elements of high-tech. The whole procedure was entrusted to a building firm: the hosts’ job was supervision and selecting materials.
The most tough task was re-preparing: a 1-bedroom apartment had to be turned into a 3-room lodging. The issue was that all the windows overlook one particular side, and dividing such type of space is not an effortless job indeed. The way-out was located in separating the bedroom from the lounge with a glass partition and a curtain. Despite its blindness, the area looks very light. The apartment may boast 2 walk-in closets and a spacious bathroom. The latter also involves a confined boxroom and a laundry zone.
Virtually all the kitchen appliances are created by Miele, a wine cabinet and a huge refrigerator — Liebherr. The flat is outfitted with a ventilation method, taking fresh air from the street — the installation is planked below the ceiling. A kitchen set, accessories and even curtains arrived from Italy.
A Jacuzzi bath of artificial stone is a centerpiece of the bathroom. Plumbing fixtures — Hansgrohe, furnishings — Antonio Lupi. A fretted mirror was ordered in Moscow, from a restoration workshop.
Plain furniture and vibrant particulars have been picked for the playroom, which provides shelter to Radomir and Miroslav. Here walls have been painted by St. Petersburg graffitists kind the hosts’ drawings.
Images for the kitchen had been purchased from a street artist in Paris, and for the hall – were copied by the hosts from performs of Jury Sychev, a St. Petersburg artist. A massive photograph, hanging in the kitchen, is a masterpiece of Jonathan Stark, an American photographer, who helps make images of loving couples on the Pont Alexandre III in Paris. A picture of night St. Petersburg, adorning the bedroom wall, was purchased from a photograph financial institution and printed in a specialist studio.
