Before buying a studio apartment in St. Petersburg Alex has resided in the country for many years. So, this lodging was meant to become a just-in-case spot – a place for taking a nap if business or other circumstances keep him in the city too late. Eventually the interior was shaped so fine that the master would spend here almost 80 % of his time, constantly choosing a functional studio space rather than a king-size house in the suburbs.

Renovation was completed within a couple of months in charge of Paul Slutsky, a designer famous for restaurant interiors. In point of background colors preference was given to neutral range: the owner wanted his lodging to be emphatically manlike and reminding of a nice hotel room.

For a start all unnecessary partitions were torn down. Actually one of them (between the kitchen and bedroom) collapsed by itself as soon as was released from multiple layers of old wallpaper. WC was opened to bathroom, and the entrance got bonus square meters for a full-fledged wardrobe for outerwear. All the interior doors (including the one in the bathroom and closet) are sliding.

One more distinction of the interior is a mixture of luxury designer stuff, replicas of famous masterpieces and simple things. Pieces of furniture and accessories were purchased in Bulthaup gallery, Funky Home and IKEA. Lamps and sofa — Ligne Roset.

The table is placed so that it might be easily used for both dining and work purposes. When guests come it’s moved to the middle of the room for bonus seats.

The floor is adorned with a silk hand-made carpet from India. The walls feature photos from the master’s personal exhibition.
