A tiny apartment in old Petersburg belongs to two sisters – Hanna and Mary. The girls purchased it two years ago and renovated within a couple of months. Designers by profession, the sisters worked out the interior strategy below their personal steam.
As the layout of 1910 proved to really handy, it was left unchanged. For the sake of convenience, shifted was just a kitchen door. As for the bathroom, it utilized to be arranged right in the middle of the kitchen and was re-located by the previous dweller.
Turquoise wall colour of the flat was inspired by a blue table set presented by buddies. Originally all supporting walls featured 50-cm deep recesses, which had been turned into systems of shelves. While mounting plastic windows, a brick fell out of the wall to grow to be a decorative interior element. 90 % of the furnishings is IKEA’s.
Given that Mary and Hanna often work from house, the lodging serves as an workplace + studio at the exact same time. The interior is accessorized with little stuff brought from travels and copies of Maurits Escher and Burne Hogarth produced by the girls. Bookshelves are filled with several books on interior design and style and architecture.
Original door leaves had been restored and painted white. A refrigerator box with plastic doors is arranged under a kitchen windowsill. Decorative bottles had been discovered on a market place, blue baskets — in Zara Residence.
A kitchen set by IKEA was supplemented with constructed-in equipment and created as neat as achievable to fit well into the lounge and operating zones.
