Flat as a magazine: it can be done by everyone - etk-fashion.com

What do you think, which style will give preferencein her own apartment girl-photographer, famous for shooting interiors for fashion magazines? Luxury, glamor, classic? No, her choice is a laconic Scandinavian design with interesting details that just repeat to anyone. It is said that very few people can so well capture and convey in their pictures the soul of the house, like Petra Bindel, a Swedish photographer who removes interiors for magazines about design. It does not matter how the interior is decorated, which she sees through the lens, there are many or few parts and colors in it - the photos turn out to be sincere and filled with a unique mood of the place. I wonder how did the girl who works in such a beautiful sphere arrange her own home? Two-storey townhouse in which Peter lives withhusband and children, is located in the Swedish city of Malmö, in a house built in 1945, with a fireplace and a small garden in the backyard. The interior strikes first of all the simplicity of that special quality that causes the desire to examine all the details and repeat them, in all their stylishness and laconicism. Petra Bindel, photographer Petra has been engaged in photography for over 18 years and jokes that during this time the camera has already become an additional part of her body. For a long time she shot landscapes and sports events, but she found the true vocation in interior reports for magazines and catalogs. Now she constantly collaborates with such publications as Dwell and Elle Decoration Sweden, and is improving in the art of transmitting in the photo the true spirit of the place and the objects inhabiting it. petrabindel.com Creating your own home is always creativity. But beauty without functionality is uninteresting, I appreciate the convenience. Petra Bindel Open-plan living room with an unusual plywood shelf In a bright, sunny living room in white, one of the most unusual solutions takes you to the second floor: a tall, up to the ceiling, an open plywood rack with a natural wood pattern is a kind of replacement for handrails. Beautifully - because it emphasizes the height of the room, it is convenient - it's safer to go upstairs, and it's practical to get objects and books from the top shelves very simply, it's worth taking a couple of steps up the steps. Near the kitchen there is a dining area -round table and chairs. Pay attention to the low-lying pendant lamp above it - in the evening it creates a cozy circle of light, uniting the family at dinner. The windows are decorated only with roll curtains, no sun-blocking textile - in gloomy Scandinavia too much lighting just does not happen. Soft sofa in the living room area is decorateddecorative cushions of muted colors, excellent looking on a gray background. The pictures are placed so that the view involuntarily rises higher, to a wonderful reception that can be used to emphasize the height of walls in a spacious room or simulate it in a small one. Gray-white kitchen and unusual wardrobe Lightsmooth surfaces of furniture facades, a light gray marble countertop and a floor with a pattern of white and gray rhombuses - this kitchen looks spacious, although it occupies only a small corner of the room. An unusual solution is a cabinet combining storage space behind closed doors that are indistinguishable from the walls, with bright colored open niches. Here, the view always has something to catch on during routine tasks, like cooking - a landscape outside the window or color accents on a neutral background. White bedroom with dressing room behind the curtain InPetra's bedroom has only small windows under the ceiling - so the white color of walls, floors, furniture and textiles here is just as useful. Disadvantages of the interior mistress drew in the dignity - in the placement of clothes behind the back of the bed helped even open communication pipes. And the curtain closes the improvised wardrobe successfully imitates the head of the bed. White is not the only color in the bedroom, but clearlydominant. Just a little bit of gray and red in the rug on the floor and pillows on the bed, color photos on the wall - the professional view of the photographer helped Petra to observe the color harmony in this room, not allowing her to look unnecessarily ascetic. The more interesting it is to compare it with the bedroom of children - quite different in mood and design. Children's wallpaper with a collage This idea is definitely worth itto adopt: one wall in the nursery decorated with bright patterns - here and birds, and berries, and flowers. Reception works including as a means of zoning - in a room where children learn, and play, and receive friends, it is useful to highlight and emphasize the place for sleep and rest. Boxes under the bed serve to store things, and a shelf above the headboard - to showcase a collection of glass balls. - The house will never look like in the picture,if you have children. No matter how much you care about the order, their joy and games are more expensive. Petra Bindel Cozy garden decorated with decorative pillows If the house has a garden courtyard - in the summer it is especially pleasant to spend time there. For convenience, there is a rocking chair and a small table. Pay attention to how masterly Petra combines patterns on the decorative pillows decorating the bench - strips of different colors and widths look together very harmoniously. For evening gatherings with friends, the garden is lit by a garland of open bulbs. - A house in which much effort is invested, nowis for sale, and I already dream of a new one. I like old buildings with a history, glass walls, a combination of copper, wood and gray-brown color and the prospect of arranging a lot of places for storage. Petra Bindel
