Kazakh interior design studio Sdelaem remont offers a comprehensive service: from dreaming up the design to choosing the perfect salt cellar, they guide their clients along the creative but bumpy road of home design.
Founded in 2016 by Diana and Elina Mussakulovas, the Almaty-based interior design studio places great emphasis on both personal desires and expertise, which is why their portfolio includes not only trendy and aesthetic interiors, but also true “individualities.” One look at their designs will convince anyone that there is a real sense of home behind the meticulous concepts. This is clearly evident in their latest project, which was commissioned by a mother of three after the death of her husband. The task was no less than to add new stimuli to a familiar space—to preserve cherished memories while sensitively infusing the spirit of change with the joy of innovation.
The building in question is a one-storey apartment, which has been redesigned to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing, creating a unique entrance hall and allowing more daylight into the family home. The homely atmosphere is further enhanced by the eclectic effect: old furniture has been complemented with new pieces, so now there is a contemporary design alongside the vintage furnishings. This solution evokes the charm of novelty while preserving the old spirit of the space. Contemporary furnishings feature a number of Scandinavian brands such as MENU, &Tradition, and HKliving, but you can spot the Dutch Eichholtz’s “Augustin” chair, which is also a big favorite among designer fans. And there’s a surprise in store particularly for art lovers, too: works of art, from illustrations to paintings, adorn the walls, the most interesting of which is perhaps the reproduction of the French painter Carolus-Duran’s Study of Lilia, which hangs above the eldest daughter’s bed. However, the horse painting in the dining room is also worth a look.
Kazakhstan has not yet developed a cult of interior design magazines, but there are still many beautiful designs to be seen, which is why we think it is important to put these works on the Eastern European design map.
