A large outdated flat, which now gives shelter to Dmitry and Eugenia, was re-planned back in USSR instances in quite an absurd way. Prolonged corridors leaded to narrow rooms, while a stockroom, in defiance of common sense, occupied a area by the window. For the sake of rationalization the hosts had to have many re-arrangements produced inside of a period of one particular yr.
2 entrance doors enabled to modify the original prepare of the lodging beyond recognition. Hence, all the public rooms were shifted to the left part of the flat, even though all the private spaces, including a bedroom, a light bathroom and a stroll-in closet, have been put in the left portion. Clear split of public and private zones was one of the host’s chief demands, because he regularly receives family members and pals. An entrance hall, a lounge with a bar and a kitchen with a huge round table formed a single “party” zone, which also embraces a research when required.
The interior style was arranged by 2 designers in colonial design, which provides considerably area for the hosts’ self-expression. Several interior aspects had been picked up by them independently, and a wall painting inspired by “A Mad Tea Party” theme of “Alice from the Wonderland” was suggested by Dmitry.
Between the sources of furnishings had been Teak Residence, Artifacts and Adamant stores. The only IKEA item is a sofa in the lounge. Horns, a mat and suitcases arrived from the grandmother’s nation-residence. A cast-iron table stand set up, kitchen chairs and bar stools for the lounge have been ordered from a showroom, which specializes on furniture for cafes and restaurants.
Preserving the original brick-laying was the host’s thought. A chest, which now serves as a sofa-side table, was discovered in a commission shop. The hosts spend their evenings in the lounge viewing movies on a projector display. All the doors, a bar outfitted with a rotation gear, bookstands and a staircase for a examine were customized-made in a carpenter’s workshop from designers’ drawings.
The examine features a loft bed with a stockroom organized beneath it. An antique desk is a designers’ gift.
A bed was purchased in Teak Property retailer. Neighboring the bedroom are a stroll-in closet and a bathroom with a window.
At the host’s suggestion, tile in the guest’s bathroom was supplemented with wallpaper featuring coquettish female faces.
