Jury and his Mom Nadezhda, who currently lives and works in Sweden, bought a lodging in old Petersburg a few years ago. Till that time they used to live in the suburbs, but studies and jobs required moving to the city core.
The layout of new purchase was quite typical for apartments of old housing stock: a narrow kitchen + two small rooms connected with a long corridor. The bathroom was actually absent: the house was built back in 1895.
Complete overhaul took about 2 years, during which a gang of professionals made brand-new floors and ceilings, demolished a few walls and built several partitions in their place, arranged a cozy kitchenette. The rest of the space was zoned for the sake of creating a small study and a bedroom.
Interior design was developed by the hostess. Her choice for the wall décor were pieces of old brick masonry, for the flooring – massive parquetry with black lacquering.
A blue set of sofa and chairs for the lounge was manufactured at an Italian factory Poltrona Frau. A kitchen set also arrived from the Apennine Peninsula, while a big picture of a meadow was brought from Brazil.
The bed is forged. It’s custom-made, as well as a chest of drawers manufactured by an Italian studio.
