Hello, everyone! I am Nikita, an interior designer. I live, work, enjoy life in St. Petersburg and with a loving wife. She is a designer too, but of clothes. It was a day off so you won’t see much of my work. Well, April 14th. The day devoted to home, friends and work a bit.
In weekends I get up without an alarm clock. I’m an early riser. That morning i got up at 8.15
From food I only had flour and honey. I chose the second.
All family had breakfast watching “the Friends”, the cat likes it too.
Leaving the flat, have to drop in the construction site and give drawings to builders in order they do not idle.
We don’t have an elevator so we often have to carry heavy stuff on the fifth floor.
“Nikita”, seems i have fans ))
I’ve seen this stupid picture for 5 years already – the ladder to nowhere and from nowhere. Maybe it has some philosophical meaning?
The winter has gone away and left this…
Sunken garage doors…
I’ll fix it later
Severe garages of St. Petersburg that grub asphalt out…
On the way
The plant built by Erich Mendelson
The building has interesting architecture but is in bad condition now. It often happens so. Why other, vulgar houses, are restored first?
Saturday traffic jam
While I am standing in the traffic jam I notice another interesting building in the modernistic style. I don’t like all these style classifications, but this one is nice. It’s kind of honest and doesn’t look as if someone harfed on the facade with moulding…
The destination object, modernistic too
I give drawings to the builders and take some photos of the facade for general director. The building is dated 1910, it used to be an office of a former paintwork materials plant. Now we are reconstructing it for our own office. Hope we’ll move in by the end of this summer.
Then i decided to enter the toilet. I had always thought i was rather fastidious about toilets like this. Turned out i was not…
On the way to the parking lot
Going to the decor salon to get some cool stuff for my work
I like to stare at buildings
This one on Nevsky prospect is my favorite. It’s the House of Books
While waiting for a manager
Do they look vulgar?
The manager is finally here and I am treated to tasty coffee. We look through tonnes of catalogues and with a huge bag of advertising samples i am let go.
Hurry home to take my wife
If you live on Vasilyev island any road from there is like an excursion
I take wife and we go to an notarial office to make a deed of a gift. See an aquarium there.
Then we decided to go buy some food
On the eve of Easter we couldn’t even find a cart
Taking a cake sprinkled with holy water
Suddenly I am told It’s forbidden to photograph here and we leave…
Funny yellow things
Again without an elevator…
While my heart is trying to restore its normal rhythm after the forced physical activity it is already half to 4…
Us. Two years ago.
The beast feels blood smell
After putting food into the fridge we decide to finish what we started yesterday – to cover a chair seat.
Our friend comes and agrees to photograph us
Here it is, the dream chair! It doesn’t match the back much but what’s done is done.
We like bananas)
The funny hair has come with the friend
One more hour is gone
We move to a studio of Olya. Rita, our friend, has come to help her in making a dress and brought a jacket made by Olya a month ago, in order I would photograph it for her portfolio.
We like this color of the walls
View from the balcony
Last preparations in the studio
The main source of light in the studio
After the photoshoot we remembered that we hadn’t eaten normal food yet. So I mince meat. We never buy ready minced meat cause we do not trust its quality.
Have to vacuum while it’s not to late. It seems our old vacuum-cleaner will explode at our feet soon…
Food at last, very tasty!
Olya has been hiding from the cameral all day long, finally I’ve caught her.
After dinner Rita goes home and Olya finishes her work
Then we watch “Friends” again. On the PC. We do not have a TV set. And it’s cool, try it! By the way, it’s our little orchid garden.
“Friends” always make us laugh! )
Even our pet
At about ten pm I contact sister by Skype and we talk for about 1,5 hours. Nephew is learning to walk, I am happy! ))
And we go to the bedroom, for us it’s the most comfortable place on Earth! )
Night light behind the window
Thanks for seeing my day till the end!
