The New York architect of the project recalled that he met the owner of the house, kesenia, through a common friend, who shared similar tastes and direct connections in art, design, fashion and architecture. The owner and architect have the same Russian background and are used as a source of inspiration in different spaces. The owner is open to the design method.
In the owners home, many walls are reserved to hang their works of art, which is also one of the main requirements of the owner. Its important for the homeowner to want the visitors to know who they are and what they like. Homeowners like Russian contemporary art, invest in supporting artists, and love fashion.
For designers, the challenge is to create a comfortable and warm place where homeowners can organize parties and take photos. All the furniture is custom-made, including powder coated shelving and grilled lights, while the herringbone parquet floor on the floor and the windowed wood panelling walls are installed in the apartment.
The owner really liked the furniture, which was the result of a discussion with the owner about the combination of Russian traditional folk customs and street art. Among fashion designers favorites are the fluffy pink footstool in the dressing room, the purple sofa in the living room and the blue armchair. Its very important to be surrounded by things that lift your spirit, inspire you and energize you, the owner said
The designer studied the apartments of Soviet intellectuals to make the project have a retro style. Housing design wants to extract the essence from Russian tradition, but at the same time make it bold and elegant.
Throughout the course of the project, the designer has been putting forward new ideas. For example, on a trip to a small town not far from Moscow, a picture of a traditional Russian house, thinking about these white linen curtains, you can still see it in Russian villages and in the post Soviet countries, building a complete story around this unique aesthetic.
According to the owners request, the apartment has a secluded corner where he can kill time, watch or study something, read and write. The homeowner compares home to a fortress, where the soul feels commerce.
A simple full-length mirror is placed against the wall, and the wall is also full of personality. Whether it is the choice of carpet, or the decorative painting on the wall, to convey the artistic flavor. Green plants in the ancient flowerpot adorn, and retro log floor form a contrast.
The design of the bathroom combines the arch and colored glass to psent a colorful feeling. The concealed shower, white bathtub, sauna room and coral metal bright bathroom cabinet add beautiful color to the bathroom, while the silver water diamond wall painting shows more space texture.
Villa jurmara, Latvian
The guiding ideology of villa jurmara in Latvian does not attach too much importance to design. Designers combine a sense of humor and poetry. These projects are characterized by a perfect balance between classical and modern design, an elegant and bold touch, and a local and international spirit.
Located in the coastal town of jurmara, 20 kilometers from the capital of Riga, the 550 square meter residence was originally built in 1930, reflecting this concept and focusing on interior decoration for a comfortable life.
The building itself, its history and architecture suggest its interior and aesthetic orientation. The designer decided to use a strong tone, with clay and olive hues.
Marble terrazzo floor, painted cherry wood arcade and door, oak parquet and veneer, green marble gate decorate different areas of the home, giving people a sense of overall value. The client is a couple and three children who want something more interesting than the usual pale white, grey or beige Baltic interior.
Warm colors and rich textures highlight the historic features of the house, and several pieces of these furniture and lighting are retro or custom-made, creating an interesting and surprising combination of design icons and contemporary treasures. In general, these elements form a harmonious space where the past and the future meet.
The buildings and Italian villas in the 1930s are the main source of inspiration for the designers. While decorating carefully, the designers introduce many colors, materials and details. The biggest challenge is to integrate all aspects of modern life, such as SP, into an old building that must retain the original architectural style.
