Bright interior of a family of travelers: an interview with a designer

A young family plans to live in this house for a long time andhappily, to place numerous souvenirs brought from travels and to exhibit paintings written by the hostess of the house. This bright St. Petersburg house is decorated by designer Svetlana Ivanova in her favorite style - eclecticism. Svetlana Ivanova, interior designer of the Interior Architecture design studio Graduated from NovSU (Novgorod State University named after Yaroslav the Wise), Faculty of Architecture, Art and Construction with a degree in design in 2008. Favorite style - eclecticism, modern and sophisticated. "Only in the union of the master and the unique personality of the customer is the magic of the interior born." - - What kind of object did you get this time andwho are the customers? - - The customers of this project are a young family: dad, mom and little son. They recently purchased a house in the Onegin Park cottage community, in the Tosnensky District of St. Petersburg. The village itself is quite picturesque, it is located near Pavlovsky Park - it is a landscape park as part of the Pavlovsk State Museum-Reserve. The house is two-storey, with a total area of ​​198 square meters. The clients' vision of the interior was different. As a result, it was necessary to combine neoclassicism, oriental and modern styles with elements of minimalism. - - How did you formulate the task for yourselfto this project? - - Redevelopment was made insignificant. But, despite the size of the house, the main task was to fill the premises with multifunctional and ergonomic furniture, which was mainly planned to be made to order. - - What was the final design styleinteriors? - - The main style of the whole house here, most likely, can be considered eclecticism. Customers, who often travel abroad, replenish their collection of various drinks, and bring a large number of souvenirs. And the hostess of the house paints pictures for which it was also necessary to provide a place. So each room in the house began to carry its own style and mood. On the ground floor, the guest room was more of a place of inspiration for the hostess. Oriental motives were transferred to the shower room, visible in the hallway and on the stairs. The master's office in a modern minimalist style has become a place for the exhibition of his collection. - - There were no long disputes on the project?- - The project was approved immediately after the first visualizations. I wanted to achieve a feeling of overall lightness, which helped the use of light walls and multi-level lighting. It was decided to bring the lamps from Italy, as well as upholstered furniture. Cabinet furniture, kitchen - produced by local craftsmen of the city of St. Petersburg. Textiles and other decor are from Italy and Spain. - - What in the project, in your opinion, was the mostdifficult to implement? What are you proud of? - - The most difficult thing, of course, was to combine completely different styles, to “make them related” to each other, to leave those dear objects that the owners of the house bring with them to “live” in this interior. Despite these difficulties, the interior of the house has become unique, versatile, light and welcoming. What the owners and I are undoubtedly proud of!
