Placing the accents – the interior in Art Deco style

Apartment in Moscow countryside in Art Deco style (designed by architect and decorator Elena Kornilova)

To your attention is the project in Moscow country-side apartment by talented Russian architect and decorator Elena Kornilova with furniture and textile completion by FIFTH AVENUE, which’s on  the cover of the March issue of ELLE DECORATION (March, 2017).

Apartment in a respectable residential complex in the pine forest on Moscow river a young couple bought from a friend. The apartment has already been renovated, and at first, the hosts  wanted just to give the interior a fashionable mood. But in the process of designing it turned out that planning architectuaral solutions and overall aesthetics of the object – all demanded a radical change.

“Basically all the furniture in the apartment were made to order — it is faster and more efficient, — says Elena. But the emphasis we have placed with collectible and vintage items. Lamps — our special pride: lamps and sconces by Felix Agostini and Maison Barbier, chandelier Paavo Tonella. Painting and photography we put together. Initially the owners did not give the art a lot of attention, but when we had to go to my favourite galleries, they enthusiastically set to work. Learning closer to the taste of each other in the field of art, we really became friends. This is only the beginning of the collection, but now the contrast of avant-garde works, classical art, photographs and graphics gives the interior a real chic! And for the bedroom, we ordered a smaller version of the sensual sculpture of Sergei Sobolev, “Venus”. By the time of family moving to their new apartment, it has got its own history — and that, in my opinion, an important part of the work of a decorator”.
