Soon after one particular year of renting a classic apartment of the Khrushchev era, John, Natalie and their son Sebastian got ready to get it in 2009 in spite of the inconvenient layout. In order to make the space livable, the hosts had to lodge with their buddies for a few months and hire a working gang. The task of the latter was replacing the pipes, electrics, floors and all the walls.
On coming back to an absolutely empty flat, the hosts got down to its decoration. The entire furnishing approach took about a year. A bay-window between the kitchen and the lounge area was set aside as a stage, but the spouses failed to find a certified master. For that reason it was constructed on their personal. A windowsill was fitted out for sitting, even though a raised floor began to stage property shows and Guitar Hero games. By drawing the curtains more than the podium perimeter, the guys get one far more bonus “room”, exactly where pals can stay overnight. Views of St. Petersburg on the curtains had been painted by Natalie.
A bar in between the stage and the kitchen was constructed by John: a white cabinet in its foundation utilised to be a element of the wall. Under the shelf stand concealed is a door major to a large storage area below the stage. A house workplace is arranged in the corner. True, 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 utilized to play a bass-guitar in a band. All the photographs present in the lodging had 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 but.
The kitchen is furnished with IKEA products — their interior even won a unique prize in the promotional game organized by the firm. Natalie’s job in the GaGa retailer chain accounts for a wonderful number of board games.
A remote space is divided into two: a kid’s area 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 necessary, 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 gives exhilarative feeling in the morning.
