January 29 - the birthday of the world classicliterature by Anton Chekhov. We will show you his house, as well as the houses of other famous Russian classics. You will be surprised, but many of the interior design ideas used in them are still relevant.Thanks to the houses-museums of Russian writers that have survived throughout Russia, today we have the opportunity to literally drop in on a visit to Herzen, Turgenev, Chekhov, Dostoevsky and many others. great writers. We have selected for you the interiors of the houses of nine Russian writers.

Alexander Ivanovich Herzen

In this house, Alexander Herzen lived the lastyears before emigration. A small mansion of the early 19th century is located in Sivtsevoy Vrazhka. Now it houses a house-museum, which recreates the interiors of the living room and study of A.I. Herzen.

Vladimir Galaktionovich Korolenko

The dacha of Vladimir was located in DzhanhotKorolenko, built in 1902 according to his own drawings and drawings. Now there is a museum of the writer popular among vacationers, and the building itself is a monument of history and architecture. The interior is rather modest, but the structure itself is impressive and delightful, while it should be noted that V. G. Korolenko personally participated in its construction. Editorial opinion: - The interior of V.G.Korolenko is quite simple: from furniture - the most necessary, a few small photos as decor, "motley" textiles. Apparently, the writer drew inspiration not from furnishings, but from nature: the writing table is by the window, and the estate itself is located in a picturesque gorge with access to the open sea.

Fedor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky

In this apartment in St. Petersburg FedorDostoevsky wrote his famous novel The Brothers Karamazov. The writer lived here in the last years of his life. Today, the apartment houses the Dostoevsky literary and memorial museum, which makes it possible to get acquainted with the interior of a simple but spacious apartment of a Russian classic.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

In this house in Yalta, Chekhov wrote a lotworks, including "The Cherry Orchard" and "Three Sisters". Belaya Dacha was bought by the writer himself. I bought a piece of the beach with swimming and Pushkin rock near the pier and park in Gurzuf. We now own a whole cove, in which a boat or a motorboat can stand. The house is lousy, but covered with tiles, four rooms, a large entrance. One big tree is mulberry.

A. P.Chekhov (from a letter to relatives) Together with his mother and sister, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov spent a lot of time here. Now in Yalta there is a house-museum of the writer with almost completely preserved furnishings of rooms.

Nikolai Semenovich Leskov

Nikolai Leskov was born in Orel, on the ThirdThe street of Noble. In his native home for more than 25 years is a literary and memorial museum, among other things, recreating the situation of the St. Petersburg cabinet of the writer. Editorial opinion: - Interior of N. S.Leskov is bright and varied. Massive furniture, a combination of different carpet ornaments, wallpaper and armchair upholstery, many paintings and books. All this gives an idea of ​​the owner as an enthusiastic, creative person who devotes a lot of time to work and reading. Interestingly, for all the variegation of the interior, Leskov chose the colors traditional for the design of the office: green and red. Thanks to this, the interior looks classic on the one hand, and very individual on the other.

Pavel Petrovich Bazhov

The writer himself built this house in Yekaterinburg,the building is over a hundred years old. Forty years ago, a museum with a priceless exposition was opened here: absolutely everything in the house remained the same as it was during the life of Pavel Bazhov. In addition, the writer's library contains about two thousand books, many with autographs of the authors. It was in these distinctive interiors that the famous "Malachite Box" was created. Editorial opinion: - Three unusual receptions in P.P. Bazhov, which you can take note of. 1. Different functions of the premises - different design. The difference between the simplicity of the kitchen interior, the practical dining room and the smart bedroom is striking. The rooms are decorated according to the purpose, this approach is unusual, but definitely has the right to life. 2. Lace textiles. In modern interiors, lace is not so common, and in Bazhov's house such textiles are used quite widely. Lace gives the interior sophistication and lightness, with it the atmosphere looks more festive. 3. Samovar at the head of the table. At the time of Bazhov, this was not surprising, but in modern interiors a samovar on the table can become the center of serving and surprise guests. Today, manufacturers of household appliances offer a variety of electric samovars.

Leonid Nikolaevich Andreev

The house of the Russian writer Leonid has been preserved in OryolAndreeva. It has survived almost in its original form to this day, thanks to which one can appreciate the environment in which the author created his immortal works. Currently, the house houses the L.N. Andreev Museum.

Leo Tolstoy

The family estate of Leo Tolstoy is located in YasnayaGlade. It was here that the Russian writer was born, spent most of his life here, created, created unique images and the greatest literary works. Now in Yasnaya Polyana there is a museum-estate of the writer. Founded at the beginning of the 19th century, today the estate itself has been preserved practically in the same form in which Lev Nikolaevich loved it. Editorial opinion:- We have chosen three techniques in the interior of Leo Tolstoy's estate, which can be successfully used in the design of a modern city apartment. 1. Identical upholstery for sofa, armchair and couch. Combined with a large number of photographs, icons and other furniture, these three pieces of furniture look like elements of one collection, skillfully blended into the interior. 2. Bright patterned carpet as an accent. The calm tones of the living room-study are successfully set off with a bright blue-red patterned carpet, so that the room does not look boring. 3. Absence of "bare" walls. Almost the entire wall space is occupied by all kinds of paintings, photographs, icons, bookshelves. This makes it more habitable, gives individuality and tells a lot about the owner of the house. Modern interiors often lack just this - a direct connection with the personality of their owners.

Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev

Spasskoye-Lutovinovo is a statememorial and natural museum-reserve dedicated to the life and work of I. S. Turgenev. Almost all the items on display belonged to the writer and his ancestors. It was here that the best works of the great Russian writer were born. It is written well only when living in a Russian village. There, and the air seems to be "full of thoughts"! .. Thoughts suggest themselves.
