Rearranged Art-Style Studio Apartment with Mostly Hand-Made, Dressed-up and Custom-Designed Decor
Corina moved to her new apartment three years ago, after a four-month redecoration and total rearrangement. After uniting the room and the kitchen into a studio, she affixed the balcony, arranged panoramic windows and removed the closet behind the bedroom, as an isolated spot. Zoning the newly-created studio space are special custom-designed partitions. Being a globe-trotter, the hostess frequently loads her apartment with décor items and utensils from all over the world.
The interior design was thought out by Corina herself. With the help of contractors from other projects she gradually furnished the flat with unusual items. As for the bed and bedside tables, they were custom-made by a cabinetmaker. Responsible for the bathroom stand-glass windows is V.F.Studio, while a hallway cupboard was hand-made by Corina herself.
A hallway shelf is also hand-made: a piece of mosaic for it was bought in Marrakesh. If the seller is to be trusted, it was dismantled in a mosque during a refurbishment.
A dressed-up drawer pedestal came from the parents’ house along with a re-painted stool.
A small Alice-in-the-Wonderland door arrived from Casablanca.
A vitrage, hiding the pipelines, was ordered from V.F.Studio.
Antique grips were dug out on a flea market in Amsterdam.
A coffee tin for storing personal care items was brought from Morocco.
A sink pedestal is new, but artificially aged. A cast-iron bath was painted by the hostess.
A hallway chandelier arrived from Egypt.
Uzbekistan plates decorating the lounge were given by friends.
The bed along with bedside tables was custom-made by a professional cabinet-maker.
Candelabra were taken off the Grandma’s piano of the early 20th century.
By rearrangement the closet was isolated from the bedroom by a venetian blind.
A chandelier over the bed is made by LARS & BO, Sweden.
An antique Japanese étagère is a friend’s gift.
Some pictures were brought by friends from the Crimea. The wall mosaic is a part of one of Corina’s designer projects.
The balcony was combined with the rest of the apartment, and the windows were extended to a panoramic size.
The table was made by a cabinet-maker as well.
A transformer-sofa was made to order, using a French Etro-style textile. Equipped with castors, it can be easily moved all around the apartment.
A luster hanging over the dinner table was purchased in St. Petersburg.
An antique jug was found in Turkey.
With the view of zoning the studio space (ex-room & kitchen) there were installed Japanese custom-designed oak-veneer partitions “Shoji”.
Creating the sense of kiting is an accent light under the bed.
