10 years ago, when the improvement of Marshal Zhukov Street had barely begun, the realtors’ gives were very advantageous, and Stephan’s parents decided to purchase lodgings for him and his sister in a property-to-be. Back then the neighborhood looked fairly diverse: lately in spot of old 5-storied buildings appeared newly-constructed higher-rises, which resulted into a jump of genuine estate rates. On the other hand, boulevards and courtyards were replaced with a broad highway.
All the flats in the property originally had been open-strategy, and by the moment of purchase had an only load-bearing building – a pillar in a lounge. Furnishings was bought on an as-necessary basis, and inside first 6 months the only interior items were a table and a bed. Even so, in the course of 5 years the lodging has accumulated numerous details and a history of its personal, because it regularly hosted loud parties. Although the neighbors didn’t complain considerably, with time the host steadily changed the celebration format for dinners.
Almost each furniture item in the home comes from IKEA. A striped arm-chair and a coffee table were one of the very first purchases and for a long time stood in an nearly empty flat.
Inside 5 years the host got fairly sick of a blue sofa, but in his mental argument, regardless of whether to get rid of it or leave, practicality always scores him off.
The original thought was to separate the cooking region from the lounge with a bar, but in the end Stephan realized that he was not ready to sacrifice his passion for cooking for someone else’s comfort, and set his choice on a kitchen island.
Purple colour, peeping out in information, is Stephan’s favourite colour.
A wooden National Emblem of Armenia is a present of the functioning gang, who were glazing the kitchen wall. It remained here as a keepsake.
Under the glass top of the coffee table there is a collection of wine corks and sugar bags, which Stephan brings from cafes and hotels.
Stephan sometimes stands by the turntables, but far more regularly just listens to vinyl records. His collection attributes mostly hip-hop and jazz, which includes 15 records by Myles Davis.
Stephan supports “Dynamo” football club, which accounts for a blue-and-white pattern in the bathroom.
A George Michael blanket slip is almost 30 years old. It was purchased in Denmark, where Stephan’s family members used to reside before. In spite of its venerable age, the blanket slip nevertheless serves faithfully.
A clock over the bed is a gift of Olga Soldatova, an artist.
