A massive old flat, which now provides shelter to Dmitry and Eugenia, was re-planned back in USSR instances in quite an absurd way. Lengthy corridors leaded to narrow rooms, whilst a stockroom, in defiance of frequent sense, occupied a spot by the window. For the sake of rationalization the hosts had to have many re-arrangements created inside a period of 1 year.
Two entrance doors enabled to change the initial program of the lodging beyond recognition. Hence, all the public rooms have been shifted to the left element of the flat, although all the private spaces, such as a bedroom, a light bathroom and a walk-in closet, had been place in the left component. Clear split of public and private zones was one particular of the host’s chief specifications, considering that he frequently receives relatives and friends. An entrance hall, a lounge with a bar and a kitchen with a big round table formed a single “party” zone, which also embraces a study when needed.
The interior style was arranged by two designers in colonial style, which provides much space for the hosts’ self-expression. Many interior elements were 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.
Among 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-house. A cast-iron table stand installation, kitchen chairs and bar stools for the lounge had been ordered from a showroom, which specializes on furnishings 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 identified in a commission shop. The hosts commit their evenings in the lounge watching films on a projector screen. All the doors, a bar equipped with a rotation gear, bookstands and a staircase for a study have been custom-produced in a carpenter’s workshop from designers’ drawings.
The study characteristics a loft bed with a stockroom arranged under it. An antique desk is a designers’ present.
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.
