Using the best works of Russian professionals as an example, we will consider how to create a classic kitchen interior so that it is modern, interesting and fashionable.There are great works of art, unsurpassed car models have been created, and there are interior solutions that embody the human desire for comfort, reliability and beauty - this is called a classic.

Modern classic style is the use of elements of past styles together with the trends and materials of today.

She set the character and style of the entire apartment. www.facebook.com/oceanvio Elena Pyasetskaya, designer:- An unusual story is connected with this kitchen - an architect was the customer! From the first moments of the only meeting in the manner of speaking, in precise formulations, in sketches, he surprised with his approach to design and was very interested in this project. He was close to my work and we harmoniously embodied the idea of an ideal kitchen. Light classic, light and cozy - his wishes. The difficulty was in the decision to redevelop, the customer did not immediately accept my version of the kitchen-dining room and scrupulously delved into the engineering part. But in terms of colors, materials, everything was accepted quickly. The kitchen was coordinated literally from the first sketch. The project has been implemented and we are satisfied with the result. www.elena-art.ru Classic style is timeless. It is harmony, practicality and durability.
