Apartment of the week (Petersburg)

Mistress: Olya - administrator of the Loft Project Floors, curator of the project "Children's time"
Rooms: 1Metric area: 38 sq. mCeilings: 2.5 m

Olya moved to a one-room apartment on Vasilyevsky Island, inherited from her grandmother six months ago. Repair began with the demolition of staggering and curved walls. They decided not to redevelop, and in place of the old partitions they simply built new ones. For several months, the hostess began to understand all the intricacies of the repair and even went for building materials herself.

Olya came up with the interior on her own. Parents helped with the purchase of furniture, but did not impose their ideas. Basically, everything was purchased in Ikea, and the hostess brought various decor items from travels or received as a gift from friends.

Olya spends most of her free time in the kitchen - there are many books on gastronomy and sophisticated culinary appliances. During home parties, a spotlight is turned on here, which turns and shines with multi-colored rays. To the side of the kitchen is a spacious balcony, however, while it is used as a pantry. But in the future, Olya is going to make a lounge area with a hammock and plants. A spacious bedroom sometimes serves as a living room: when friends come, the bed in a niche is curtained with curtains.

Olya sewed bright curtains from Ikeev fabric with foxes together with her mother. In general, the apartment has a lot of details depicting animals.

When the hostess receives guests, the bed is fenced off with a special curtain.

Olya bought a lamp in the form of Saturn in the Ikea children's department as a gift to a friend, but in the end she decided to keep it.

The fox on the wall was made of wood using cookie cutters. You can hang rings and chains on it. Soft toys - lemur, Mr. Brylu, Mr. Broccoli and Mr. String - Olya carries with him on all trips.

Olya took the vinyl player and records from a friend who was about to throw them away.

A familiar children's writer tied a fox to a fox, a friend sewed a bear for housewarming, and the hostess made the cards herself.

White furniture was taken as the basis of the interior, diluting it with numerous colored details.

Chairs and watches were bought at the Kare showroom the day after the store opened.

The author of the picture is one of the regular visitors to the workshops "Baby Time", which the hostess arranges in the "Floors". Rami Olya brought the biography of her culinary guru Gordon from London.

On the windowsill grow basil, parsley, caraway and oregano, sage and Kalanchoe bloom. The plans are to plant orchids, as in the novel by Zhoris-Karl Huysmans “On the contrary,” which Olga recently read.

The huge fold cat Lyubimchik moved into the apartment for a while, while his owners are traveling.

Bottles on the top shelves are the first step to creating a home bar.

Olya keeps all sorts of little things in memory of trips, friends and interesting events.

A red kitten-manchkin named Tishtarka was brought recently. Its paws are two times shorter than that of an average cat.

The cat often rides with the mistress in the basket of her Schwinn bike.

Olya's pride is a mirror, which is lit on the sides with bulbs, as in a dressing room.
