Maria and Maxim moved to the latest development by the Gulf of Finland 2 years ago, in connection with birth of their second kid. The prompt solution to depart Vasilyevsky Island for this community was gingered up by unconventional semicircular layout, extraordinary metric location and a picturesque gulf view opening from the 12th floor. 50 % of the windows overlook the Gulf of Finland and the Smolenka River, the other individuals – Krestovsky Island and Previous Petersburg.
The spouses began with cardinal layout modifications: expanded a kids’ area and a kitchenette by indicates of a research, arranged a shower in the ex-closet and fit the hall with a large storage zone. The latter gave an alternative of releasing the room from quite a few closets.
For redecoration purposes the owners hired a development gang, even though interior drawings and a lot of furnishings items were produced by the hostess herself. Walls of the entrance hall and the kitchenette had been coated with decorative plaster.
Kitchen set — Berloni, table and chairs — Сaligaris. A clock by Diamantini Domeniconi is Maria’s father’s present. For 2 years it was waiting in the wings to last but not least turn into the very first interior item brought into this lodging. A handloomed carpet beneath the coffee table was purchased in a modest seaport town Essaouira, Morocco. Interestingly, on arriving in Russia the carpet was taken to dry-cleansing, which managed to shed it for a yr. Hand-created masks have been ordered from a studio specializing in manufacturing trappings for the Venetian carnival. A bookstand is filled with presents of relatives and pals brought from different countries of the world.
The balcony is Maria’s personal space. A modest sofa and a wardrobe were produced below her sketches from makeshift resources and painted by Ilya Nikitin, a specialist artist. A sewing machine was dug out in a scrap-heap, whilst the shelf stand is packed with travel souvenirs.
Sliding doors and a library bookcase are a fruit of lengthy consideration and imagination of the hostess. An intriguing detail is a heavy chest, which took 6 persons to be brought into the flat, and couches by Bond St. London. Bulbs in a pin-up lamp by Ligne Roset are tilted back so that the lamp form was projected on the wall.
Maxim’s study is organized in traditional design. Photos had been painted by Maria’s grandfather, a geologist who ranged the complete Soviet Union. Due to bad good quality of paint and severe camp conditions some of his works had been lost. Sofa — Residence Cоncept, table with alcoholic drinks — Villeroy & Boch. A guide stand is custom-designed..
The mother and father wouldn’t clutter the kids’ space. A tree and stickers — Eijffinger, sofas — IKEA. The rest of the furniture was custom-made.
A fresco for a guest’s bathroom was painted by Ilya Nikitin. It photographs a little Greek island Santorini, the family’s favourite travel location.
Turquoise wallpaper was chosen by the hostess. Bed — Ligne Roset.
