Interiors in the style of modern classics from the designer Natalia Bazhenova


How to find a compromise if the apartment ownerslove different styles in the interior? How to make so that even the most incompatible objects in space could "make friends"? Natalia Bazhenova shared her secrets with us. For the designer, working on each new project is a solution of new and interesting tasks. Too many nuances need to be taken into account in order to result in a steep interior, which will become a constant source of positive emotions. But the more difficult the task, the more interesting the result, says Natalya Bazhenova.

Bright projects

Apartment-lantern "The owner of the apartment lovedcook, but, alas, smoked. We have fenced off the kitchen area with sliding doors with frosted white glass. Inside the furniture is ivory. When the lights are on in the kitchen and not in other rooms, the light emanating from underneath the frosted glass illuminates other rooms. The interior of this apartment was published in the magazine "Beautiful Apartments" in 2009 ". Elegant Office “I mainly design houses and offices, but sometimes I work on office and café spaces. This is the office of the head of a well-known company. " Memory and modernity “This is very interestingproject. My clients are adults, and they have many things that are dear to their hearts. And they were so different that at first I didn't know what to do with them. In addition, the tastes of the spouses, as often happens, differ: the wife likes minimalism, and the husband gravitates towards the classics. "

Work experience and team

I began to design interior design beforeadmission to the Institute of Design. My professional work began in the famous furniture company Mr. Doors. Later, one of my regular customers offered me a design project for the Riedel boutique in GUM. Then went the project of apartments and houses. Basically I work with one assistant - a 3D visualizer, with which I execute the project from and to. However, when a very large project appears, I draw the draftsmen.

Natalia Bazhenova, designer


- - Natalia, in what style do you most of alldo you like to work? - - I believe that the designer should help the customer find his own individual interpretation of the interior, correctly correct it in color and shape, not forgetting about the ergonomics of the space. After all, there is no bad style - there is a bad presentation! - - What are your most important achievements? - - The fact that the majority of my clients turn to me through word of mouth. This means that people recommend me! Achievement, probably, is quite a lot of experience in designing furniture - it allows you to quickly cope with various problems that sometimes arise at the facility. - - What is your best project? - - I think it has not yet been created by me and will be implemented in the near future. I believe that a creative person will never be completely satisfied with his work, he will always strive for the best. If this is not the case, then the person has stopped developing. - - What is the geography of your services? - - I work in Moscow and the Moscow region, but I would not refuse projects in other cities. - - The products of which companies can you call your favorite and why? - - I have no favorites. I choose furniture that suits the task of the project and the budget of the client. However, as far as tiles are concerned, that is, the brands that I use most often in my work are Grazia, Revigres, Petra. The first one costs reasonable money and is beautiful in the classics, the second one I mainly use in minimalist interiors, and the third one is suitable for luxurious and expensive spaces in different styles. - - Natalya, what is the most difficult task you have ever faced? - - Probably, this task also awaits me ahead. For me, the more difficult the task, the more interesting the result. And to do something in the evening or night is a fairly common phenomenon. It also happens that you come to the client, and the team is already waiting at the facility and you urgently need to design so that the builders do not stand still. - - What is your favorite place in the apartment and why? - - My favorite place since the institute is near the TV in the living room. Why? It's just that I do most of my freehand sketches and drawings next to my family and the TV. I do not like to sit alone. Perhaps these are my oddities. - - Remember, please, an unusual case from your practice. - - Once I made a big house in the baroque style. The hostess was very fond of gold, moreover, there was a lot of stucco molding in the interior. I planned that there would be not so much of this noble metal in the interior, only in the patterns of the cornices. I went to rest, and when I returned, I found out that the hostess had ordered to cover the ceiling molding with gold. It turned out like in Versailles. I was surprised.
