Interior of a wooden house

Light touch of antiquity

If the people's style is chosen as a reference point for the interior, then it is necessary to pay special attention to the dominant colors, to give time to careful elaboration of details emphasizing the "Russian spirit". A large bleached or tiled glazed oven will immerse the room in the atmosphere of a fairy tale. The vaulted ceilings of the historical analogue (chambers, churches, light-boxes), because of the complexity of the design calculations and the high cost of reproduction, should be replaced by sloping, upward-lying planes in the premises of turrets, bay windows, tops of the towers.

Timber under antiquity

A real work of art will be the ceiling, painted in the Old Russian style. Thin interlacing flowers, patterns, leaves on a light or contrasting background (crimson, emerald-grass, azure), and in the children's room - heroes of folk tales, stars and smiling heavenly luminaries painted with bright natural colors and gold - these picturesque motifs, impressions from murals of objects of ancient Russian architecture, spread out like a luxurious silk tent, from which it is impossible to look away. Such a reception is very rare, requires the true skill of the artist, but causes indescribable delight in everyone who sees this perfection.

The variation of the style "Russian North" implies the use of a tree, as if covered with hoarfrost. Fine woodcarving, a special tar flavor, filling the room with an invigorating spirit - that's what a wooden house is so much appreciated for. Silvery-gray, as if ironed by time and frost, a bleached canvas of curtains and furniture upholstery, laconic dishes of light colors - this range of materials used in the interior of a wooden house, inside creates a sense of purity, restraint, laconic friendliness, fully characterizing the owners. If the wooden variant of the Provence style is filled with solar heat, then the northern style can be defined as refined and cool.

Kitchen in the tree

In the "dacha" version the design of the wooden house is thoughtfully connected with the beginning of the last century or the time of the 60-70's. It was then that the word "dacha" acquired the importance of an easy, creative, happy life.

The palette of such compositions is extremely wide. To choose a shade corresponding to the owner's ideas about what the house should be like inside, follows by covering pieces of wood in several layers. Spruce, pine, cedar, larch, oak have a different color of wood, a light tone on the reddish cedar and gray-green oak will look different.

Windows and textiles

The windows of the wooden house open the view of the surrounding landscape, ensure the unity of man with nature, so closing them with multi-layered curtain designs is sacrilege. When choosing a project, it should be tied to the terrain, oriented on the sides so that from all the premises you can observe the change of natural seasons, the time of day, enjoy the living greens and the colors of the garden. If the house is inscribed in a pine forest or stands on a hill on the shore of the bay, then the windows should be opened to meet the beauty of the world - otherwise, why did you choose such a site?

Solid glazing instead of walls

Projects of wooden houses with floor-to-ceiling glazing, a cubical style of Baltic design, minimalism, trimmed from the outside by vertical or horizontal wood paneling is an opportunity to build an eco-friendly house in a modern arrangement. "Walls" of energy-saving insulating glass make it possible to create the feeling that the owners live inside the forest, dissolving in it, receiving daily energy feeding. Such windows require only a minimal frame. Optimum use of roller blinds with automatic drive, closing the interior from the bright sun, protecting them from overheating, and decor objects from fading, creating a cozy evening atmosphere during the white nights.

Panoramic windows in the bedroom

Textile interior design of the house is selected depending on the overall tone of the finish. Cloths with deep folds look good against the background of the walls, if they contrast. In a bright interior, the "naive" prints (fine flower, peas, thin stripes) look beautiful and make possible the use of the Provence style inside the wooden house. On the whitewashed tree are appropriate cotton fabrics with a blue pattern. Depending on the style and purpose of the room, it can be English roses, Dutch genre walls, gzhel patterns, seafront prints or graphic ornaments.
