This 3-space apartment in the south of Moscow shelters 3 generations of this family members, and namely 4 men and women: Dmitry and Anastasia, their daughter Sophie and Grandma Yolanda. Till recently the lodging looked just as 30 years ago – with heaps of unnecessary stuff in ceiling cabinets and rooms, which had to be taken out in 3 large containers.
The family members have been unwilling to launch key overhaul what they wanted was to replace the old parquetry and put a bathroom and a kid’s room into shape. In the Net Anastasia located a portfolio of a designer, who shared equivalent views about beautiful issues. The designer’s specific interest was the desired interior style − modern day Scandinavian, and experiment preparedness. Hence, a slight facelift gradually grew into complete overhaul, and the family had to live in a rented dwelling for practically half a year.
Unwilling to launch a wonderful re-arranging, the owners just had ceiling cabinets removed and a bedroom door shifted. The hosts had 3 chief specifications for the future interior: comfort, eco-friendliness and inexpensiveness.
Flooring was partially produced of ceramic granite by Cerim, mosaic in the bathroom, and oak parquetry in the rest of the rooms. The next step was replacement of old radiators with new ones by Arbonia and installation of higher-high quality sanitaryware.
Most of IKEA furniture was constructed into wall recesses and diluted with things and information of other brands. Felt sofa in the entrance hall — BoConcept. In order to close an electric handle box, wiring and an alarm technique, the wall here was supplemented with a ledge and faced with white clinker tiles by Kamrock. For greater visual space the room was adorned with mirrors. Tv-set console by Kostroma Furnishings. A color poster of Berlin was made by the designer, while the other was identified in the World wide web.
Anastasia and Dmitry’s bedroom serves as lounge zone at the identical time. When needed, the bed converts into a sofa. Carpet − Zara Home, standard lamp — Kostroma Furnishings, letters-candlesticks − BoConcept, textile for curtains − IKEA. Images of a cat and the daughter’s half-face are Anastasia’s creations.
Sophie research in the second kind and attends a college of art and architecture. When the family members have been on trip in Montenegro, a local painter identified out her inventive capabilities.
In order to zone relaxation and work locations, a bedhead was accentuated with variegated wallpaper and textile lamps. The latter had been custom-made by Electric Project Organization.
Grandma Yolanda is a wonderful fan of England. Her area was changed insignificantly: new curtains, re-painting of a bookstand and re-wallpapering.
Marble mosaic in the bathroom proved to be good from each decorative and practical points of view: it’s dirt-resistant, warm and smooth to the touch. For a nicer texture, walls and surfaces here had been covered with microconcrete. So that a tiny bathroom was far more or less cozy, a bath had to be sacrificed for the sake of a custom-made shower cabin. Sanitaryware − Hansgrohe, Duravit. For the WC and kitchen the designer picked up a handful of surprising elements. 3 suspended lamps were installed in the toilet area, and white glossy doors by Art Porte had been refreshed with grips, which stand out of the overall style notion, but match into the space quite effectively.
A dining table is a accurate rarity, which stands in the waiting list for restoration. A massive textile chandelier resembling a BoConcept model was custom-produced by Electric Project.
