The husband runs the kitchen in this family, his set of Japanese knives is forbidden to even approach the household. At the sdelaemremont bureau.kz were sure that he would reject the pink kitchen. But the owner of the house responded to the proposal with a proposal: “To hell with it, with the kitchen, make me a black bar — and I agree to everything.”

sdelaemremont company.kz is a family business, it was founded in 2016 by Diana and Elina Musakulov. “My mother is a design engineer by profession, and I studied art history in the States”” says Elina Musakulova. It turns out that if these two industries are combined, an interior bureau is obtained.

Name sdelaemremont.kz sometimes confuses people: the bureau receives orders like “lay parquet, make a new wall of drywall”. “When we receive such requests, we apologize to those who mistook us for a construction crew”” Elina explains. But more often, those who already know that beautiful spaces are being created here turn to the bureau.

Nargis, the owner of this apartment, approached the project very correctly: she came to the Musakulovs’ office with plans for several apartments so that the designers could tell which one was the most advantageous. In this set there was an apartment that Elina calls a “designer’s dream”: one load-bearing wall, several wet spots and many windows. It was she who was bought by Nargis and her husband — and given to the sdelaemremont bureau.kz carte blanche for its design.

The absence of walls made it possible to create an ideal layout in the apartment — there are many storage areas, while the apartment seems very spacious, even endless, because circular motion is created in it.

“Our clients pleasantly surprised us,” recalls Elina Musakulova, “they approved of all our ideas, coordination at all stages took place from the first time. Moreover, we did not even discuss the style beforehand and did not receive references. Perhaps the fact is that the landlady of the apartment is a fashion stylist and is used to mutual trust between a professional and a client.”

The designers settled on the idea of a laconic “canvas”: white walls and classic herringbone parquet. And the furniture was bolder: a bright orange headboard, a pink kitchen and a sea-green dressing room bring a drive to a calm space.

A funny story came out with the kitchen: the designers knew that Genghis, Nargis’ husband, was in charge here, and they were not sure that he would agree to a pink kitchen set. However, Genghis replied“ “To hell with it, with the kitchen. Make me a black bar, and I agree to everything.”

With such customers, the work turned into a pleasure — even the lockdown that happened in the middle of the construction site did not prevent. There were no delays in any deliveries: materials, furniture, lamps and textiles arrived on schedule. The only snag was the sconce in the bedroom. The model that the designers wanted to order was discontinued, and it took a long time to find an alternative option. But designers remember this problem with a smile: “Happiness if all projects go this way.”
