Designer Anton and decorator Katya used to live outside the Moscow Ring Road, but, returning from Bali last winter, they sold an apartment and bought a new one on Neglinnaya. The apartment required major repairs and redevelopment, but this did not bother the owners. Anton and Katya are professionally engaged in interiors and know how to change any space beyond recognition even with a small budget.
Katya immediately made sketches in her notebook, and Anton made 3D visualizations, which were supplemented with clippings from magazines and pictures with ideas for each room.
The owners are going to travel more, renting out housing, but they approached the repair thoroughly and did everything for themselves. In an apartment with a budget, but high-quality finish, the emphasis was on decor. Designers did not drive themselves into the framework of one style, played with textures and colors, and also organically woven suitable objects into the interior.
Many elements of decor are from the showroom at the Details school, where new items from the famous French exhibition Maison & Objet are regularly brought. Anton and Katya studied in "Details".
From numerous trips, the owners bring more and more decorative elements. The picture in the hallway came from Bali.
Anton - designer
Contrary to popular belief, not only light walls visually increase space. The same effect can be achieved with the help of dark shades in the decoration of walls and ceilings, as well as spotlights. In the bathroom, textured rough stucco was used.
The patterned Venetian mirror brought from Bali contrasts with a tree - part of the fence of an abandoned country house. Pebble-shaped sink - Castorama.
The owners could initially reach the ceilings with their hand. We managed to increase the height by removing the wooden beams and floors and lining the ceiling with a clapboard.
Thanks to the combination of two previously adjacent rooms and a corridor, it was possible to place spacious areas of the living room, kitchen and dining room, while leaving five windows around the perimeter.
The floor is larch, the walls are brick. The house was built in 1903. In one corner, I even had to close up the trace of the projectile.
Katya decided to visually break a single blank wall by imitating French windows. In addition to design, Anton is also involved in furniture - the frame for ordinary square mirrors IKEA was made at its production.
Mirrors, reflecting the light, themselves turn into windows, so this solution justified itself both from a decorative and from a functional point of view. Sconce on the mirrors - showroom of the school-studio "Details" with red lampshades from IKEA.
Chairs are made at Anton's furniture production. Anton improved conventional luminaires from IKEA in his favorite way, finishing the inner surface with copper leaf.
The dinner table, which the owners noticed in Neglinnaya Plaza, cost a lot of money. As a result, they ordered the same from pine for a very reasonable price.
At the coffee table from IKEA, the countertop was replaced with a silver dish. For the countertops, they acquired a new foundation in the showroom "Details".
Instead of a classic fireplace, they built a candle.
Poufs, an armchair, kilim and coffee tables made of aged teak on metal frames - show room "Details".
The black wall behind which the bedroom is located is slate, it can be written in chalk on it.
For the decoration of the bedroom they chose a complex shade of blue, which looks especially advantageous in the sun penetrating through wooden blinds.
Chest - IKEA.
The resourceful owners built the head of the bed out of the doors. Bed - IKEA, pillows and bedspreads - Zara Home, "Details".
Bedside tables came from Bali.
