How architects live: apartment for a friendly family in Palashevsky Lane -


Apartments in the "Moscow Historical" often defineThe mood of the owners to the "classic" mode. But what if you were lucky not only with real estate, but also with a large and friendly family? How to adapt a strict classics to the needs of everyone? The classic interior is the best solution for the family, because it helps to create a great taste for children. This is the opinion of the famous Moscow designer Julia Kornilova. And today she will tell us how to achieve this, using the example of her own apartment Profitable house of the Patriarchs. The place is really good - not an apartment, but a designer's dream: 200 square meters in the center of the capital, a two-level space, a free lay-out that opens up great opportunities, many windows and high attic ceilings on the second floor. The apartment is located in a reconstructed building of the XIX century. At the first level is a luxurious 40-meter terrace, which the architects managed to turn into a winter garden. And on the second floor there is a mansard floor, added after major repairs. For the famous Moscow designer YuliaKornilova, one of the founders and managing partner of the bureau, this is an ideal place to live. But Julia is not only a designer, she is also a happy mother of three children. Therefore, her house was supposed to become a comfortable space for the closest and dearest people. Yulia Kornilova, co-owner and designer of the bureauDominanta: - Family is my happiness, my defenders, I have three boys. The eldest, Artyom, is 20 years old, he is already quite an adult, he studies and works in a large company. The middle one, Roma, is still studying and is fond of theater. The youngest, Mishenka, was only 2 years old. They are very different, but very friendly guys. I wanted our house to be not only beautiful in itself, but also to participate in fostering good taste in children, to connect different generations and remind of family traditions. Natalia Kuretneva and Yulia Kornilova, founders of the architectural bureau Dominanta interior design & decoration Natalia Kuretneva is a graduate of the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering and the Institute of Design and Advertising. Yulia Kornilova is a graduate of the State Academy of Management and the International School of Design. Both have dozens of successful projects in their portfolio: apartments, country residences and representative spaces. Natalia loves interiors in the style of new classics and Art Deco and creates unique designer furniture for them. Julia prefers bourgeois Provence and, paying much attention to the ergonomics of space, is able to take into account the needs of all family members to create truly comfortable interiors. “I am interested in building a dream,” says Yulia. “While working on the interior, I consider the most important in the end to create a harmonious space, in tune with the owner's personality, his lifestyle and state of mind,” continues Natalia. The apartment was decorated for the first time back in 2007.And now, after 8 years, the Dominanta bureau was entrusted to take on it again. There were many reasons for this - not only creative, but also personal. Yulia Kornilova, co-owner and designer of the Dominanta bureau: - First of all, our family has grown - Mishenka, the youngest son, has appeared. And we needed another children's room. In addition, as a person who has been working in this field since 1998, I can see with the naked eye how the level of interior design in Russia has grown. And although the photographs from 8 years ago still do not look outdated - due to the use of traditional, natural materials and furniture from “eternal” factories like Giorgio Piotto, I wanted to add a fresh and modern look to the interior. Trends in color, fabrics, and upholstery have changed. And I was inwardly striving for renewal. It is similar to the irrepressible desire to go to the hairdresser and change your hairstyle or hair shade. Space structure and planning Apartmentsimple and very convenient for a large family with boys of different ages. The "Children's Kingdom" is entirely located on the second level. Adults and common areas are on the ground floor. The connecting point of all levels and rooms is a large spacious hall with handmade mosaics and wooden boiserie panels made according to Yulia's author's sketches and reminiscent of the traditions of the old Moscow aristocracy. From the hall you can get directly to the stairs, to the bathroom, to the kitchen, and to the living room. This family loves guests - you can see it right away, onplan. There are two living rooms: from the “small” one, intended for the exchange of news, family film screenings and cozy gatherings in a narrow circle, you find yourself in the “large” one, located in the warm part of the vast terrace. A fireplace, a cozy and elegant soft band and a grand table on the podium. The musical and literary salons of the mid-19th century, for which Moscow noble families were famous, must have looked similar. The elegant white piano in the Art Deco style is complemented by a double bass wine cabinet in the corner. Julia is a graduate of a music school, and she herself often plays for the soul. But the real owner is Yulia's middle son, Roman. An excellent instrument is the center of a young theater company participating in various productions, including musical ones. Stylistic and color solutions The whole interioris built on the play of shades and halftones, complex color combinations and a variety of textures. Shiny upholstery and matte draperies, sparkling crystal and blackened metal, wicker surfaces and glass, dark and light textured wood - this apartment is a real paradise for lovers of complex tactile sensations. This approach, on the one hand, provides a very high level of comfort, and on the other hand, it softens the “museum quality” that many classic interiors sin. Yulia Kornilova, co-owner and designer of the bureauDominanta: - The classic is winning. At any time, it remains relevant and ageless. I just decided what was reflected in the color scheme in the first place. Sunlight from the winter garden falls into the living room, so the silvery-pearl colors in the velvet upholstery of the sofa group, the adjacent pouf, Roman curtains and curtains, the Dovlet House carpet in the same colors are just perfect here. This gives the interior a touch of elegance. The winter garden wanted more light, so beige upholstery appeared on the furniture. Fancy pillows with floral patterns dilute the overall color scheme. The interior of the bedroom turned out to be with golden-silver notes, I chose fabrics on an intuitive level, commensurate with the color of the walls, floor and the general atmosphere - I did not want anything bright and catchy. Perhaps this is due to the birth of Misha. Maternal happiness, inner peace and love overwhelming you, when a small child is born, are looking for a way out in just such a range. Misha's children's room is made in a marine theme, in a white and blue color palette. The interior of the study in the apartment is highlighted by a neoclassical rosewood bureau and a silver accent in the chair upholstery. Subtleties and details Warm family interiorcreated with inspiration, as if by itself. Experiments with textiles, dozens of diverse accessories obviously fascinated the hostess. Everything was chosen with great taste, invention and sometimes with gentle humor. But not only that.True to the idea of ​​educating her sons' taste through the objects that surround them, Yulia thought over every little thing and admits that there is nothing accidental in the house. Etchings on the walls - copies from the Tretyakov Gallery archives; portraits of children are made using the Renaissance technique - tempera on a board; even photographs and watercolors in the rooms - from masters of their craft, artists and graphic artists. Yulia Kornilova, co-owner and designer of the Dominanta bureau: - One of the main problems of our society, it seems to me, is the broken connection between generations. With rare exceptions, all of us who come from Soviet childhood know almost nothing about our roots or our traditions. But nothing prevents us from remembering and collecting bit by bit all that we can, and where we cannot - create our own traditions, pass them on to our children and teach them to appreciate. You need to start with yourself. In the kitchen, Julia has a sign - "Made in an Italian workshop according to the sketches of Mrs. Kornilova." The pictures that formed the basis of these sketches are not fantasy, but real memories from childhood. They echo the furniture that her grandfather carved and that surrounded her when she was a child. Now Julia can share a piece of her story with her own children. And they appreciate it. The classic interior is filled with the mostModern technical systems, elements of "smart home" and fashionable novelties. Nevertheless, when the sons of Julia first came to the renovated apartment, they could not restrain the sigh of disappointment. At first, it seemed to them that marble floors, traditional furniture and paintings on the walls gave a little mothballs. But the second reaction was completely different. The more details and details opened to their eyes, the more interesting it seemed to be a discreet but very stylish space. Space, which took into account the habits, needs and ways of life of each of them. To my mother there was only one question - when she had it all. Yulia Kornilova, co-owner and designer of the bureauDominanta: - The only difficulty was to find the time and implement our plans without compromise. Otherwise, renovating your home is exceptionally pleasant and interesting. Imagine how great it is to put a re-upholstered sofa, armchairs, chairs in the already familiar interior, hang new, flowing, freshly steamed curtains, throw pillows, lay an American bedspread of your favorite brand, outweigh the paintings, repaint the dining table. And ... everything played with new colors and new mood. Everything is like in life! When creating the interior were used:

Secrets of the interior in neoclassical style, designers' advice:

  • Neoclassicism is a synonym for respectability, which means that the ball should be reigned with restrained luxury, clear geometric lines, proportionality, symmetry and a soft color palette.
  • Classics do not like pretentiousness. Follow your sense of proportion: stucco, crystal, gold and small details should not overload the interior. If there are too many, the eye can not catch everything - and you experience discomfort.
  • Avoid "museum" in the interior. It is necessary to create a friendly environment for both the family and the guests. To do this, use cozy furniture and accessories that tell you about your personal preferences and habits.
  • Classics and neoclassicism are heirs of palace styles. That is why they have a special love for wooden panels, natural stone, parquet, massive central chandeliers.
  • Traditional styles create great opportunitiesFor lovers and connoisseurs of antiquity. Therefore, in such interiors appropriate and restored grandmother buffet, and antiques, and furniture of good factories that can interpret the story in a new way.
  • It is not out of place to recall the addiction of moderndesign to eclecticism. In classic and. Even better - paintings and drawings of the 20th century, hung on the walls. Another thing is that they must be of excellent artistic quality - a dubious print in a neoclassical living room is likely to look cheap.
