Take a look inside this apartment in Moscow

You gotta take a look at this apartment in Moscow.

In its original form, this apartment would have been a typical example of ‘stalinka’, a style of architecture from 1933 to 1955 associated with the Soviet Union and the leadership of Joseph Stalin.

The interior designer

It has now been redeveloped and designed by interior designer Nadya Zotova.

Nadya studied at the British Higher School of Design and interned at Sotheby’s School in New York before founding Enjoy Home, an architectural and interior design studio based in Moscow.

The use of statement lighting above the dining table differentiates the living room into two distinct zones, one for dining and one for relaxing.

Nadya used the Ella suspension lamp by DelightFULL.
