We were reading along Freshhome's blog - and noticed several interesting shapes, patterns and inspirations for interior design. Since I am a Dallas, Texas interior designer - I've not really seen anything like this around here - so felt it worth writing a quick blog post about. This naturally appealing and minimal architecture and interior decor in Russia caught my eye.
From the blog:
envisioned "Volga House", a modern residence with intriguing wooden
features, located in Konakovsky District, Tverskaya region, Russia. The
design of the house is derived from the characteristics of other
traditional dwellings in the area and showcases an interesting
“”patchwork” look. Wooden planks trimmed unconventionally overlap to
create a very original facade. The architects explain that the project
was inspired by the Soviet era style, when private house construction industry used to be rundown and backward”.
But it's the interior that really caught my eye - because of the useful use of space and efficient 'applicable' items - bookshelves, lighting - all arranged in a way that would stylishly meet the needs of any artistic homeowner. Luckily - creating a 'useful' space is one of a few strong growing interior design trends 2013.
