Today we will take a trip to one of the mostbeautiful cities of Russia - Perm. Here is a house made of timber, in which a family of 4 lives. The interior of the house is unusual: here timber walls are combined with modern furniture. The house that we have chosen today can be described in just a couple of words: a dream house. The owners are absolutely sure of this - a young modern couple with 2 children: a boy and a girl. They bought a ready-made house made of laminated veneer lumber from the Finnish company Honka. Its location and layout completely coincided with the wishes of the family. The only thing they lacked was good design as the finishing touch to their dream come true.

Wooden houses have a special atmosphere thathas a beneficial effect on human health, therefore, wooden walls (timber) are preserved in the interior. The design of the space is based on country style elements. The necessary visual background is created by pine-colored walls and ceiling combined with a dark brown floor. Bright accents in the interior are the fireplace, made according to an individual sketch, and the Ginestra kitchen from the Italian factory Snaidero, which is famous for its design developments.
