The ideas about what a modern Russian style is, how it looks and how it should be, are rather blurred. However, the traditional elements of the Russian style are remembered easily: Khokhloma, animal skins, Russian or Moscow wooden nesting dolls and a samovarit seems that until the modern Russian style is completely formed, it partially borrows elements of historicity. It turns out not always successfully, often it turns out rather “a la Russ”, rather than the Russian style. We talked to interior designers about their most disliked traditional Russian motifs and came to the conclusion that the whole thing was in the presentation.

The Style of the Doll

Russian style is very diverse, so it is easy to find something of your own in it: you can look for inspiration in the patterns of Russian lace, you can in popular painting, folk costumes and so on. In personal interpretation, any of these elements will look elegant and subtle and at the same time will be easy to read. What I don’t like is the direct reading of the Russian style, when for illustration of Russianness in the interior they use primitive tools that are read “head-on.” In this case, the interior turns into a poor reconstruction for foreigners. In life, we have not used a samovar for a long time, do not lay a bear’s skin on the floor and do not walk in a painted sundressall these are obsolete attributes that are used to create a very superficial picture. At the same time, traditional Russian elements can be used in a different way. You can, for example, take lace, but introducing it into the interior is not literally, but, say, taking a picture and putting it on wallpaper or printing it as a poster. The same is true of fur: instead of throwing the skin on the floor, it can, for example, upholster a chair or the headboard of a bedit will turn out unban ally, beautifully and in Russian style. Some even mittens, hung on a hook in a modern interior, will give a feeling of Russian nessthis is, after all, an original Russian thing.

This is a very important point:

We live in the XXI century, we don’t have a king, boyars and lackeys, therefore our interior, even acquiring notes of Russianness, must remain modern. When the interior plays in historicity, it always turns out unsuccessfully: to literally repeat what was before, it will not work anyway. In addition, a person who will live in this interior will have to walk around the house in a sundress, otherwise he will be uncomfortable, and the interior will reject him.

  • The problem usually lies not in the motive itself, but in the quality of its presentation. Wooden toys and Gzhel in sideboards of the Soviet times next to plasticine toys are terrible, but this is not a motive, this is a different story. And animal skins, and, oh God, even deer heads can look good in the interior. The main thing is to be in place and with the right entourage. And if someone succeeds in creating a new Russian style with a reference to history, it will be amazing and beautiful. And it does not matter; golden nesting dolls will inspire the author of the project.

Decorative and artistic eggs

Eggsthe production and sale of artistic eggs in St. Petersburg at low prices: Artistic products in the form of eggs are known in Christian and other cultures. The most common symbolic meaning of an egg is eternity. Art products in the form of eggs are very elegant and harmoniously combined with almost any environment in the interior space. The artistic image on the surface of the egg actualizes the symbolic meaning of this form. An egg can consist of one whole shape, or it can be collapsible, like a nested doll, and consist of 3.5 or 10 similar shapes. Artistic decorative eggs are probably the most common gift. They were given to Roman emperors, Russian kings, ordinary people, they adorn museum collections. In line with this symbolism, you can find nesting dolls of the deceased being displayed for years. This symbolizes that the deceased is never truly dead, instead they are just reincarnated to another life.
