How to live in Chelyabinsk: an incredible 36-meter apartment designer Oksana

How do creative people create interiors and why are theyApartments become unique? Probably, they do not deny themselves anything and do not put boundaries in anything. Understand! This charming apartment, a bit like a doll or just fabulous, is in Chelyabinsk and belongs to a creative girl specializing in design, but not interior. He is for her only a kind of hobby. Oksana Pigina personally designed her apartment, having received as a result absolutely charming housing. Oksana Pigina, designer Professional advertising designer (polygraphy, web), creator, branding specialist (Ekaterinburg, URGU). Occasionally makes the interiors public, private (including in the context of creating a brand concept). The artist (abstraction, naive). When a designer, and even more an artist, does something for himself, probably this is the most difficult. Complicated because there is not and can not be any framework! After all, you accept many styles, all of them you love - and what will you choose as a result? In my opinion, the brighter the individuality of any person, the less standard solutions in the interior are suitable for him. Often you have to create non-existent things, rethink ergonomics to feel the harmony of space.

In this apartment cardinally has been changed itselfAppointment of premises. The kitchen turned into a bedroom. The dressing room and the walls that formed the hallway were demolished. As a result, the entrance hall was reduced to 0.6 square meters. M. I just do not need it anymore, I'm sure Oksana. And the kitchen was also subjected to a global alteration. Its area was 7.5 square meters. M, after repair was only 3 square meters. M.

The mistress's dreams

Oksana wanted her apartment to merge withNature, which is nearby. The house is built almost in the center of the city, and next to it there is a forest. Nature, environmental friendliness and naturalness should have filled the apartment as much as possible. I wanted more clean air, so a fan appeared in the room, and not an air-conditioner; The softest cork on the floor; There is no glassed-in balcony and windows are open all the time. I really wanted to achieve the most bright room and learn to expand the space to infinity. And also - that the bath was cut into a rock and there was a waterfall. To some extent Oksana managed to realize this. The girl was categorically against folding furniture, mini-furniture, fenced off space for a bedroom of 2 mx 2 m, without windows and air. As the girl has a tense rhythm of life, oftenHave to hold business meetings right at home. Therefore, another important task was the need to provide for the possibility of business communication with two or three customers at the same time. And the TV should be comfortably viewed at the right angle from any point. Bedroom, incidentally, if necessary, easily fenced off with a light curtain.


Light here in fact fulfills the function of zoning. In addition, in a small room there should be as many light scenarios as possible so that a person feels comfortable in different roles. There are three types of lighting: the maximum of light (the type of the lamp is not important, the intensity is important), intimate, relaxing light (ambilight-TV lights are very good), decorative light - lamps with crystal elements creating patterns on the ceiling. This chandelier, I must say, has undergone changes. At some point, Oksana wanted to add colors, and she hung more than a hundred elements on a regular crystal chandelier: Italian beads, roses and chains. The bathroom is decorated with a forged chandelier with vegetable decoration.

Color and Textile

The choice of color combination in the apartment, rather,Is due to the peculiarity of creative artistic manner (bright juicy colors of abstract works, endless pulsating combinations of colorful watercolor stains), passionate love for eastern culture and the southern sun. The girl was conquered by a plaid of Togas from natural sheep's wool, so he decorated the bed. The kitchen deserves special attention in the apartment. And not only because it only takes three square meters. She is the brightest, the most unusual, she wants to look at and guess what she's made of and why. And of course, because of the beautiful boxes. Oksana Pigina, designer: - That version of the kitchen, which is now - the third. One was creamy-white-beige on the basis of Arabic ligature. Then I looked "Kandahar" and it became clear that the Arab "fear of emptiness" has no place in my house. Thinking over the second option, I folded the structure with the need to place a plumbing pump, a water filter, and remove the kettle from the eyes. I'm convinced that a small apartment just does not need a large kitchen! I like to cook, but I do not do it from morning till night, and I do not eat from morning till night, and I do not have a lot of children yet, who need to be fed all the time. So only the most necessary remains. Even a separate oven was abolished. Then I thought that for a long time to look at large monophonic surfaces opposite the bed, no matter how complex or simple the color, they were inevitably boring. This, perhaps, is amazing, but it was on today's multi-colored colors of the facade that Oksana was inspired by make-up. More specifically, this is a photo found on the web. And already in the process of selecting shades, the colors of steelSlightly softer and more tender. Then the search began, how and where all this could be translated into reality. The girl even sculpted the facade samples from solidifying plastics. As a result, this idea could be embodied in the studio furniture "Servant'es". Here, individually wrote a program for the machine, created individual cutters. Grinded, painted, too, in the atelier. Digital tinting according to NCS. Fittings - Blum.
