AN AMAZING APARTMENT THAT LOOKS LIKE A FAIRYTALE

2022•02•09

In St. Petersburg you will find an amazing apartment that looks like a scenery of Rapunzel. It isn’t a doorless tower, but this top floor apartment on a palatial building has a generous 22-meter ceiling.

THE RAPUNZEL-STYLE APARTMENT

Unlike the fairytale, this amazing apartment has a lot of doors and windows but it wasn’t so much attractive for new buyers. Maria Grudina, however, saw its potential and went for it. “It was the princess’s tower that every girl dreams about from childhood,” she says. Maria went on to hire St. Petersburg-based interior designer Tim Veresnovsky to turn up the property into a creative studio, where her imagination could run wild.

Tim and Maria already met from previous design projects of Maria’s properties around the world. So, she trusted that Tim was going to make her dreams come true. Despite Russian interior design can tend to be conservative, Tim has a way of bringing his clients out of their comfort zone. With him, anyone can be brave. His international vision makes his aesthetic way over the edge.

THE SWING BETWEEN MONOCHROME AND COLOURFUL

Maria and Tim’s partnership resulted in a charming design oddity. The apartment is a mix between monochrome minimalism and kaleidoscopic color. In summary it is the marriage between Russian conservatism and Disney pop.

Before, the apartment couldn’t get much of natural light. But Tim changed it. The designed broadened the living room windows and turned his attentions to the walls. Don’t forget the ceiling, with a custom-made chandelier that evokes the lights of Orthodox churches.

The traditional Russian architecture is compensated by the cartoon-pop details. A Mickey Mouse artwork and dazzling tapestries affirm this home’s fantastical counterculture. Maria’s dream and Tim’s boldness definitely turned this house into an amazing apartment out of a fairytale.
