Following one particular year of renting a traditional apartment of the Khrushchev era, John, Natalie and their son Sebastian got prepared to buy it in 2009 regardless of the inconvenient layout. In purchase to make the area livable, the hosts had to lodge with their close friends for a handful of months and hire a doing work gang. The task of the latter was changing the pipes, electrics, floors and all the walls.
On coming back to an completely empty flat, the hosts acquired down to its decoration. The complete furnishing procedure took about a year. A bay-window amongst the kitchen and the lounge space was set aside as a stage, but the spouses failed to find a experienced master. Consequently it was constructed on their own. A windowsill was fitted out for sitting, although a raised floor commenced to stage residence exhibits and Guitar Hero video games. By drawing the curtains above the podium perimeter, the guys get one far more bonus “room”, the place close friends can stay overnight. Views of St. Petersburg on the curtains had been painted by Natalie.
A bar among the stage and the kitchen was constructed by John: a white cabinet in its basis used to be a portion of the wall. Beneath the shelf stand concealed is a door major to a large storage location under the stage. A house office is arranged in the corner. Correct, now you have to leap more than the sofa armrest in purchase to sit down by the table.
The spice of the wall is Fender Precision Bass — John utilised to perform a bass-guitar in a band. All the images present in the lodging have been made by the owners a “This ain’t California” poster was torn off the wall in Berlin. An easel was dug out on a disposal dump a week ago – the guys haven’t cooked up what to do with it but.
The kitchen is furnished with IKEA things — their interior even won a unique prize in the promotional game organized by the firm. Natalie’s work in the GaGa retailer chain accounts for a wonderful variety of board games.
A remote area is divided into 2: a kid’s area with a loft bed and a blind parents’ space. So that the space looked bigger visually, it was equipped with a huge wall-to-wall closet and a window overlooking the kitchenette. When needed, it may possibly be closed with a dense curtain or a retractable glass.
The bathroom was linked to the WC. The walls are adorned with photographs of apples and fresh-colored tile, which offers exhilarative feeling in the morning.
