Right after one year of renting a classic apartment of the Khrushchev era, John, Natalie and their son Sebastian got ready to purchase it in 2009 regardless of the inconvenient layout. In order to make the space livable, the hosts had to lodge with their buddies for a handful of months and employ a operating gang. The job of the latter was replacing the pipes, electrics, floors and all the walls.
On coming back to an totally empty flat, the hosts got down to its decoration. The entire furnishing method took about a year. A bay-window in between the kitchen and the lounge room was set aside as a stage, but the spouses failed to discover a certified master. As a result it was constructed on their own. A windowsill was fitted out for sitting, while a raised floor started to stage house shows and Guitar Hero games. By drawing the curtains more than the podium perimeter, the guys get 1 more bonus “room”, where close friends can stay overnight. Views of St. Petersburg on the curtains have been painted by Natalie.
A bar between the stage and the kitchen was constructed by John: a white cabinet in its foundation used to be a component of the wall. Below the shelf stand concealed is a door top to a big storage location below the stage. A property office is arranged in the corner. Accurate, now you have to jump more than the sofa armrest in order to sit down by the table.
The spice of the wall is Fender Precision Bass — John utilised to play a bass-guitar in a band. All the photographs present in the lodging have been created by the owners a “This ain’t California” poster was torn off the wall in Berlin. An easel was dug out on a disposal dump a week ago – the guys haven’t cooked up what to do with it however.
The kitchen is furnished with IKEA items — their interior even won a particular prize in the promotional game organized by the firm. Natalie’s job in the GaGa retailer chain accounts for a fantastic quantity of board games.
A remote room is divided into two: a kid’s room with a loft bed and a blind parents’ space. So that the space looked larger visually, it was equipped with a large wall-to-wall closet and a window overlooking the kitchenette. When required, it may possibly be closed with a dense curtain or a retractable glass.
The bathroom was connected to the WC. The walls are adorned with images of apples and fresh-colored tile, which offers exhilarative feeling in the morning.
