WE ARE LAUNCHING A NEW ROOM "ROOM", dedicated to the place in which a person spends most of his time. It can be absolutely any space: a huge kitchen in which the hero works and rests, an art gallery, which has become the second home to its owner, or just a living room in a one-room apartment, which is at the same time an office, a bedroom and a secret place. A space in which a person is able to focus on himself and his business and not feel like a participant in the eternal race of a big city. In our new issue - Dasha Filatova, the creator of the Sand Dune brand, and her living room in a house on Chistye Prudy.
I have been living in this apartment for about three years, originally it was my fiance's apartment. At some point, we decided to live together. I spend a lot of time at home - mainly in the living room, which is also the kitchen and dining room. It is fundamentally important for me that the space in which I live suits me.
Previously, my boyfriend lived here alone, so the whole apartment was a little cold, bachelor. Together, we decided to redo some things - for example, paint the walls and the bathroom and add extra comfort with the help of the little things that are important to us. I am pleased that this room has many windows and it is quite bright, despite the fact that the weather in Moscow is not always happy.
Clothes from the Sand Dune collection are on the rail. Dasha admits that she really loves this color scheme, which reminds her of a trip to Death Valley
The metal shelves were designed by the couple's friends - architects from the M17 bureau. They can be moved, and then the space will change with them.
The building we live in was erected in 1900. This is an apartment building, and the three upper floors, including ours, were completed after the war. There is a special atmosphere here: a concierge grandmother who knows everyone, a beautiful staircase and pictures in the entrance, which were drawn by our other concierge. Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein once lived in this house. I like the area of Chistye Prudy, I can say with confidence that for me it is one of the best in Moscow, and I managed to live a lot of places. Here are calm and friendly neighbors and it is convenient that everything you need is nearby, including the Bauman Garden.

The big disadvantage of this apartment, which cannot be fixed, is the layout. For example, it is inconvenient that the bedroom has an elongated shape. It was generally difficult to do something with her to make her look harmonious. This is probably also why I do my business mostly in the living room.
I'm an introvert by nature, so I love the house with all my heart and love when guests come to me - for dinner or just like that. We often watch films on a projector with friends, recently, for some reason, mostly documentaries. I also work here: since the room is quite large, I partially use it as a showroom.
