As the layout of 1910 proved to extremely handy, it was left unchanged. For the sake of comfort, shifted was just a kitchen door. As for the bathroom, it used to be organized proper in the middle of the kitchen and was re-located by the earlier dweller.
Turquoise wall colour of the flat was inspired by a blue table set presented by buddies. Initially all supporting walls featured 50-cm deep recesses, which have been turned into systems of shelves. Whilst mounting plastic windows, a brick fell out of the wall to turn into a decorative interior element. 90 % of the furnishings is IKEA’s.

The interior is accessorized with tiny things brought from travels and copies of Maurits Escher and Burne Hogarth made by the women. Bookshelves are filled with numerous books on interior layout and architecture.
Authentic door leaves have been restored and painted white. A fridge box with plastic doors is arranged below a kitchen windowsill. Decorative bottles were identified on a marketplace, blue baskets — in Zara House.
