Barbara: "The main thing in the interior of the house - skillfully combine incongruous"
<span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-family: Tahoma;"><div style="text-align: justify;"> </div></span></span></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Barbara, tell us about your house</strong><br />Start talking about their own home and for some reason I remember about my childhood, when little thought about the house and how it looks, because in those happy<br />years, simple and clear - your home wherever you come after school, where you meet the parents and grandmother, napekshaya pies. You just really want to go home. That such thoughts are with her husband and began construction of our house - home to like.<br />The need for a separate homeland, where it would be comfortable, easy and comfortable to be increasing with age. Every man for himself defines the term "my house" - for someone - a family dog and cat, birch trees outside the window, for others - is a computer and desk, and someone identifies the house as a place where he was born and spent childhood. For me, this concept is constantly being transformed, and sometimes even spontaneously. Me me myself, my surroundings, my dreams, so why change and demands that I apply to our own family abode. Project of our house was born in agony. Literally! .. (laughs). Like any creative process, the construction required a great effort. The house was built so long that we have a course of action even tastes had changed. For only communication was carried out three years! The walls are literally "stuffed" special hoods, devices for humidifying and all kinds of wires. My husband is like comfort. For him, it is important that the house to maintain certain temperature and humidity.<br />At this stage we are only adapting to the house. I begin to understand that it is absolutely impossible to foresee everything in advance! This includes little things like furniture placement, and global affairs, such as the redevelopment rooms. For example, it turned out that I had nowhere to store their concert costumes. So I think now, what would be room for it to adapt, what to demolish the wall at this time ... (laughs).<br /><br /><strong>How active are you and your husband have participated in the development of the project?</strong><br />I believe that a happy family life is largely dependent on the similarity of views on the home of the husband and wife, and the willingness to ignore the small discrepancy. Perhaps it is because we spent a lot of time working on the project and the process of construction, the house is good and convenient to all members of our family. Virtually the entire design, we decided together with her husband. Of course, argue about until we were hoarse, but always found the best option, which was obtained on the joy of all.<br /><br /><strong>By whose help you have used during the construction? I listened to the advice of "experienced" friends?</strong></div><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-family: Tahoma;"><div style="text-align: justify;"> </div></span></span></span><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-family: Tahoma;"> </span></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-family: Tahoma;"><img height="101" width="150" alt="Варвара и дочка" style="margin: 5px 10px 0px 0px; float: left;" src="/files/50/varvara2.jpg" /> </span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;">While preparations were underway for the construction, we have "shoveled" huge amount of literature, visiting exhibitions and galleries. Some time we simply accumulated information and mentally prepared for the new, unknown period of our lives.<br />Of course, there were experts because in addition to our desires, needs a competent planning and a true separation of space into zones. We helped an experienced and talented designer. He listened to our arguments, along with us doing sketches, and then analyzed all the material, just bring us the finished project. This greatly facilitates the task. Friends we are happy to listen, but did anyway in their own way. Although useful advice yet met, but they were different well-known details like the quality of built-in equipment or usefulness of daylight.<br /><br /><strong>How dare design of the house and each room?</strong><br />My experience allows me to assert that reshivshemusya to the construction or major repairs of the house the man is not necessarily the skills of professional decorator. Suffice correctly accents in the interior, but it can be done only by the owner.<br />For example, a room I had long planned to draw in the style of "high tech". Beginning with the fact that the stained walls in the milky color, put the fireplace and suddenly realized that I did not quite like it. As a result, had to redo everything, and a living room turned Greco-Japanese. From the living room, we combined the cinema, although it is not taken, allegedly deteriorating sound quality. We managed so competently distribute these zones that the acoustics are absolutely not affected. The main attraction of this room has a fireplace, where I spend most sensual moments of his life. In the living room a lot of stylish gizmos, such as bird-cage unusual design. Every time he looked at her, I can not figure out how its done!<br />For registration of a bedroom, the most intimate places in the house, I chose the quiet shade, on which rests the eyes. Things that filled this space, reflect what I most value - music and books, and tarnish the walls emphasizes interior details.<br /><br /><strong>What is the most favorite place in your house?</strong><br />Kitchen, as each of us would not mind a good meal (laughs). Depending on lifestyle owners, kitchen in the interior of a modern house can play a different role. Our kitchen is used for its intended purpose and to the fullest extent - we are preparing there often and much, nevertheless, four men in the family! The main criterion for us was the maximum functionality, so the kitchen a lot of furniture and built-in appliances, which is convenient because it allows us to realize almost any design decisions. It turns out that even built hoods, which do not yield power, extract solo. Kitchen smoothly into the dining room, which is decorated in colonial style. Dining room - this is the place where we often spend time with your family. In case there were many guests, we have provided a winter garden, which is the biggest in the house a round table, which can easily accommodate twenty people! The most interesting thing, sitting around the table in the evening, you can admire the starry sky.<br /><br /><strong>As planned rooms for children? Get Involved whether they themselves to design their own premises?</strong><br />In the house each child has his own room. We wanted to create the most comfortable space, that is why our children and offered himself to draw sketches of their own rooms. That was where the tumult of imagination and color! My husband and I, in turn, pursued the very specific purpose: comfort, safety of the child, beauty and pedagogically rooms, where literally every detail has some developmental or learning role.<br />Greater attention required coverage of children's rooms. The best conditions for the visual work of creating fluorescent lighting, giving a soft, diffused light, very close to the spectrum of natural light with virtually no shadows. A special place was taken by all sorts of sconces, table lamps, floor lamps, which are necessary in the nursery, due to their multifunctionality. Well, the main role in these rooms is the presence of "light duty" - because kids are often afraid to sleep in the dark.<br /><br /><strong>Barbara, as there was selection of furniture?</strong><br />We have focused on environmentally friendly products. It is particularly important for the quality of the wood kitchen units, because in this room a special microclimate - we always cook, fry and soar food, my dishes. Furniture in the kitchen is made from specially treated solid lime, and not afraid of no moisture or temperature difference. Furnishings in the children's rooms, too wooden, made in different shapes. For example, a bed for a small Variusha made in the form of a car, our little girl is very much like a machine!<br /><br /><strong>You once mentioned that your family loves outdoor activities and sports. As a solution to this issue in the house?</strong><br />First, there is a small but very bright room, which is my favorite jogging path, which begins almost my every morning. The boys love to do exercises on the terrace in the fresh air, summer, and I would often join them. In addition, we have a billiard room. Special pride - a pool table with top made of marble. Even professional billiards player, who often gather at us, note that to play at this table - a real pleasure.<br />Several years ago I was passionately fond of fishing, and the husband is still devoted to the hunt. True man! On the walls of the billiard room, we hung our family's hunting trophies. A stuffed fox and a wolf pelt on the floor - a house-warming gifts for friends.<br /><br /><strong>Your home generally affects the abundance of eclectic, unusual antiques, carved furniture, knick-knacks from the East - is a common family hobby? And how could "reconcile" in the interior of such different things?</strong><br />I love fusion! Around! Almost everything in this world combined, the main thing to be able to do it correctly! In our house there were many interesting things, including antiques. Some were brought from distant countries, some bought in Russia, something was inherited from our grandmothers and grandfathers. Abundance of eclecticism in interior - a reflection of my current perception of life. In my music, much of this style. I try to combine exquisite melodies east with beautiful melodies of the north. I like to experiment, it is always interesting and original.<br /><br /><strong>Barbara, do you think there will come a time when want something to change in the interior of the house? What could induce you to such changes?</strong><br />I do not know when it will happen, but over time our house will change its interior, that's for sure! We do not get used to things, not cling to them. Therefore, I am sure that a few years necessarily's change the atmosphere at home and invent something new!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 12px;"><span style="font-family: Tahoma;"><br /></span></span></div>
