How celebrities live: the interior of the apartment of the leading radio Mayak

What to do if you do not want to return to the dullRentable apartment, to Brezhnev crystals and the Finnish wall? Repair of course! This is how the leader of the radio station "Mayak" Vera Kuzmina, whom we visited,

"What all green!"Is the first thought that arises when you cross the threshold. Theoretically, in such circumstances, the skin of the face should acquire an olive shade. Nothing like this! The popular myth is immediately broken about the reflection in the mirror opposite the front door. The complexion is fresh and summer, as he should be. The tall smiling hostess who meets us at the entrance herself is like a cheerful sunny spirit. Runs into the room and points to a cactus on the wall with large drops of rain on the fleshy leaves. Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the Mayak radio station: - It all started with this photo. This is something like photo wallpapers covered with plastic film. At first the cactus grew, and from it already - the general color solution. When I brought home buckets with paint, I wanted to run their hands on their elbows - this was a feeling of impatience. Friends and relatives thought that this bright and characteristic color would quickly bother me. And he makes me happy for two years. A renewable source of my life energy, a solar battery. Cactus battery, rather say. Here it is, "color therapy" in action. The designer did not need Vera. The author of all cheerful scenery is herself. Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the Mayak radio stationBorn on Radio Day - May 7th. Perhaps, it was this happy May star who brought a young lawyer, a graduate of the Russian State Social University, from the prosecutor's office to the Institute of Television and Radio Broadcasting, and from there directly to Mayak. Vera conducts the show "Faith, Hope, Alexei" with Alexei Vesyolkin, "Profiteroli" with Yevgeny Stakhovsky and author's program "Addresses of Charity" with Alexander Vetrov. Loves the summer; Travel to the countries of which everyone has heard, but where no one else was; Fried rice with egg and ketchup; Well, "when the world is all over the world," of course. Organization of space In fact, these 32 meters of summer inspiration Vera do not belong. The apartment is removable. Hence the approach to repair work. But so, to return home with pleasure - and after a long working day, and after an exotic journey. The owners of Vera got "with understanding" - they let them get rid of the old situation and do everything they want in the apartment. Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the Mayak radio station:

- It was very gloomy and stuffy. A small apartment from wall to wall is made up of items from the 1970s and 1980s: a Finnish wall, a bulky Soviet crystal, a glass "chandelier with flowers", old chiselled chairs. Literally there is nowhere to turn. The first could not stand Mom and said: stop worrying, do, finally, repair! And really, it was such a good idea! I threw everything away, demolished a piece of the wall that separated the tiny kitchen from the corridor, and mezzanine above it. And, finally, I was able to breathe. Breathes in such a space reallyGreat. We go out onto the balcony and look out - in front of us is a yard the size of a football field, entirely planted with trees. The green-green apartment is very suitable for the famous "bagel" from Dovzhenko Street. They seem like-minded - not so much stylistically, as in spirit. At one time, the architect Stamo and the engineer Markelov also came up with an impressive but budgetary project, a monumental proof that, if desired, "candy" can be made even from "Khrushchev." They took advantage of the permissible error in laying the panels at six degrees and thus the house was looped. Even now the building looks unusual and interesting. And in the 70's? It is not hard to guess that in the run-up to the Olympics-80 such houses were planned to build five. But practicality won - stopped at two. The facilities turned out to be cumbersome, expensive to maintain and not particularly convenient. Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the Mayak radio station: - I really like this house, yard, green around. But, we must admit that for repair it's just a nightmare. There is not a single straight wall and a right angle. All apartments are trapezoidal. That is, to accurately and according to the rules to build furniture here, you need to sacrifice a useful area and, accordingly, remove the walls. Of course, I did not. Therefore, the master who came to install me a corner kitchen, bought at IKEA, for a long time suffered, infinitely calculated and adjusted the table top and bottom cabinets. As a result, he did everything perfectly. Details In the kitchen, too. Lamp. Cutlery. Pepper mill. Dishes. Even the apples in the vase, and those - "simirenko." Most of the accessories are gifts from friends. The hunt for the "right" color has evolved over time into a thrilling quest for Vero's surroundings. Then, Vera confesses, she "let go" a little. And then a new hero appeared on the salad scene - a sofa in the dacha style of color "polygraphic red", or magenta. Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the Mayak radio station: - Here it all started not with color, but with form. I saw a wonderful Russian company Woodcraft couch with a wooden base, which was reminiscent of summer terraces, south and leave. And when I realized that it is still easy to unfold - you must also have a sleeping place for guests! - the question was finally solved. Then I chose the color from the catalog - very suitable, right? Well and then there were pots and other details ... There is no table as such in the kitchen, therefore in a tiny room there is a lot of free space. The very Vere grabs a small side table. And for guests is a special folding design from IKEA: in between the arrivals of visitors, she "rests" on the balcony. A modest stove for two hot plates and a small refrigerator - there is no need for more. Storage Vera Kuzmina, presenter of the radio stationMayak: My friends say that I live in a closet. And this is the truth! At first I wanted, as usual and act in such cases, to make a large built-in wardrobe with mirrored doors. But it was a pity and place, and the feeling of air. So it turned out like this. It is very convenient to choose your clothes in the morning. Stimulates to maintain order - there would be doors, inside there would be a mess. And now I'm cleaning up what the eye is looking at - and it turns out to keep a neat look without much effort. This system of metal racks in general is very practical thing: all the compartments and shelves can be easily changed and moved by yourself depending on the needs. Outdoor wardrobe - the most important element of decorThe only room in the apartment. As a carpet, he breaks the green monolithic walls. For the convinced "shmotochnikov" with a modest living space, this is the only opportunity to get at your own disposal, and even in it to settle. For happiness to be complete and final, a "growth" mirror. Vera specially ordered it at the Moscow mirror factory. Decoration No one really expensiveThere is no finishing material in this green kingdom. Simple domestic doors, on the walls - wallpaper for painting, on the floor - a light laminate, laid directly on the old coating, on the ceiling - white paint. Even in the bathroom it was possible to do without tiles: they stopped on plastic panels with a funny geometric pattern. White-green of course. At first Vera tried to find textiles for windows, but then she also refused it in favor of light translucent rolls - she was afraid that serious cloth curtains would disturb the amazing ease and freshness of her home. Here are the photos made, the questions asked, the storiesTold and retold, and we all can not say goodbye to the hostess. Already through the threshold, Vera calls to come again. I thought how good it would be to come to such a house in winter: to shake off the snow from my coat, remove my boots and caps from the eyes, drink green tea in a cactus room and chat about vacation in some distant warm country where no one else is familiar Was, but Vera probably already was. When creating the interior were used:

  • Mesh flexible storage system - Elfa (Sweden);
  • Bed, chairs, floor lamps, carpet, shelf in the hall, armchair in the room, bed linen and kitchen - IKEA (Sweden);
  • Sofa - Woodcraft (Russia);
  • A large mirror in the bedroom and a mirror in the hallway - "The Moscow Mirror Factory" (Russia);
  • Refrigerator Atlant (Russia);
  • Cutlery Vialli Design (Italy-Poland).

How to create a bright interior with minimal tools - Roomble recommendations:

  • Choose a base color - bright and optimistic, but light in tone. Even painting the walls from floor to ceiling will create a feeling of unity and ease even in the most modest space in the area.
  • Gently add individual colors and hues to the main tone with small spots. It can be one or two pieces of furniture, individual parts or accessories, textiles.
  • Finishing materials must "work" onThe main color and do not contradict it. In small spaces, white is best for this. Even the simplest materials, if they correspond to each other, can look "expensive" and stylish.
  • Use the idea of ​​an open cabinet. It has not yet become widespread in Russia, but it is very popular in Europe, especially in Scandinavia. For small rooms, this is often real salvation.
  • Before beginning any alterations on a modest squareThink about what items you really need, and without which you can easily do without. The best is multifunctional furniture: folding sofas, modular cabinets, etc. For example, if you do not like cooking - save space at the expense of kitchen appliances, if you prefer dry cleaning - choose a small washing machine.
  • Mirrors change the perception of space - use them and arrange around the house in accordance with the objectives and size of the room.
