This apartment was inherited by Hanna from her Grandpa just a couple of years ago. Now the space appears so neat and fresh that you may feel that it is newly-constructed. Really, the dwelling was built back in 1950s and had a very inconvenient layout featuring two tiny rooms, a bunch of unnecessary walls and narrow non-functional corridors. Apart from, all the walls, ceilings and floors necessary major repair and had to be replaced.
An seasoned construction crew has fixed every little thing inside a few months. They arranged French stretch ceiling in all the rooms, coated the wall with neutral washable paint, laid shock-resistant laminate flooring in each rooms and very same-color tiles in rooms with high site visitors.
The living area is fairly narrow, but thanks to light walls and flooring and absence of extra furniture looks really spacious and open. Most of the furniture arrived from IKEA stores. Nevertheless, there are some exclusive issues, which includes antique stuff. For instance, a landscape picture for the lounge utilised to belong to the Russian Tsar’s loved ones. The regular lamp is a low cost copy of a well-known Artemide Tolomeo model. Linen curtains by Ralph Lauren Property in the lounge are arranged above common blinds.
A pearlescent potbelly China-style vase decorated with mosaics has a few chips and thanks to that was obtained with a enormous discount on a flea market.
The bedroom is white with a few colour accents: a blue floor vase, which arrived from China 20 years ago, a vibrant bedspread, and sweet flowery pattern on the blinds. Furniture shapes, chandelier style and the blinds generate lovely Provence-style motives. A hand-created bear was bought in Scandinavia.
The kitchen is white and quite minimalist, which reminds of Scandinavian style, but with some Provence motives.
