How to combine the old buffet and IKEA: mistress Masha and her 52 sq.m.

As a hobby can help to repair, and her husband - inLooking for antique furniture? How to treat the classics with humor, and to repair - with love and enthusiasm? The answers to these questions will be provided by Maria Barinova - a person who realized her dreams and fantasies Maria Barinova - not a professional designer, but very creative person and mistress of the 52-meter apartment, which she decided to remake in her own way. It turned out at her so good that her husband now proudly shows photos of new interiors to his friends, and Maria shares her ideas with our readers and the process of their implementation. Being by nature a perfectionist, Maria loves the creative process no less than his result. To the arrangement of her apartment, she approached not only with all seriousness, but also with a share of humor. And it helped to cope with those difficulties that appeared already in the process of work. Maria Barinova PR specialist, teacher of French, photographer - - Maria, where did you look for inspiration when choosing a style? And how is it better to define it? "I've been trying to formulate for a very long time what our housing should be like." Minimalism and modern style were swept away immediately, because I'm a fan of things and things that do not fit into a strict geometric design. I also adore the old days, if not to say "old". For example, I persuaded my husband to take from friends an old hill-buffet in a very "second-hand" condition. As a result of the revision of all the "good" accumulated at that time, it was understood that our house would be in the style of the "old Moscow dacha", as I formulated it for myself. - - The color scale was chosen by what principle? - - We have a southern side, the sun is very much all year round. And my husband and I like blue - calm, cold color. To visually do not "freeze" the apartment, had to look for fashionable palettes of interesting colors that would echo each other, smoothly flowing from the room to the room. As a result, the ideal colors were the colors of sage (gray-green in the kitchen and in the bathroom), blue and gray-blue teal (living room and corridor) and chocolate with bright turquoise in the bedroom. - - In your apartment you embodied all yourDreams? - - Yes, dreams managed to realize almost everything, proceeding from the available budget. On the functional exactly. I still want something else so far. But do not alter, but add. The only thing I would do if I had any experience behind my shoulders - all the furniture would be built in and drained off the walls! And the second idea, which will someday be realized, is to unite the kitchen and the living room. We realized for ourselves that it will be more convenient for us. - - Where did you buy most of the furniture? Was it difficult to choose? - - 80% is IKEA. The table-transformer of the Russian production, "Furniture Array", found on the Internet. This is an array of oak, excellent accessories, good performance. The dining room and the console in the hallway are Rokos from Vladikavkaz, but I can not recommend them because of the very uneven performance. Bed - Turkish Bellona, ​​gorgeous! Carved furniture was brought from India. - - What turned out to be the most difficult for youProcess of realization of ideas? - - Difficulties have arisen with the installation of the kitchen. The very material from which made furniture - Solid and beautiful, but the quality of manufacture and assembly is poor. Another difficulty is the uneven walls and floor, and even our audibility turned out to be almost like visibility. In an amicable way, in such apartments it is necessary to do a full noise isolation on a floor, a ceiling and walls. But it eats precious centimeters, not to mention money. - - What is the most proud of you in your apartment now? - - I'm proud of everything at once. And I'm very proud of my husband: he showed the highest degree of endurance and altruism, allowing my creative imagination to unfold in all its might. But now he likes what happened, he feels comfortable and does not want to change anything. He shows his friends with pride photo interiors. Satisfied. Love him! - - Your advice to those who think about the arrangementHis nest in the classical style ... - - From the classics it is good to leave the main elements: calm colors, natural materials, direct, discreet forms. Classics - this is not a gilded rosewood, not silk with carpets, not statues with columns above the jacuzzi. Classics - it's just a base on which you can build any dear to the heart of the interior, inventing a new, pleasant, very individual name for you. - In what style would you do the next renovation in the apartment? "I would repeat the same thing, but not so hastily." Would add even more "old" details. In general, the same vinaigrette, but with a more complex dressing. Maria Barinova
