Maksim and Lyuba purchased their apartment near the center of the city in the house with a history. The repair took much time. They thought over the interior by themselves. They wanted it to be folkloric.

The hosts tried to use natural materials in finishing. So, floors in the apartment are natural oak.

Ceiling lamps are hand-made. There is one from wooden baskets in the room.

The hosts didn’t want to clutter up the space with wardrobes due to a small area, that’s why their wardrobe room is behind a canvas curtain.

Maksim and Lyuba planned to hang pictures on walls, that’s why there are no patterns and bright colors on them.

Abrupt white walls in the kitchen remind of a Ukrainian hut. It was difficult to explain such idea to workers, as they got accustomed to level walls.

Suspended cases in the kitchen were made from the same boxes as the stack in the living-room. Maxim and Lyuba painted the tile and cases by themselves.
