Uniquely styled living spaces tend to adhere to a single theme, be it in terms of color-scheme, inspiration, art or anything else. Alina Puzhak, an interior designer, has turned the notion of a unified theme into a meta-critique with the St. Petersburg apartment she designed for a young family. The theme of her work is precisely its diversity of styles, with each room in the unit interpreting a different interior design style from throughout history.
The styled living spaces are disparate in both temporal and geographical inspiration. The living and dining room, for instance, takes local inspiration from the Russian painter and theoretician Kazimir Malevich's Suprematism movement. Moving into the girl's bedroom, however, viewers are transported to 19th century France with Impressionist-inspired ornament. Then the boy's bedroom incorporates the Pop Art of 1950s New York and London, with comic book and advertising imagery.
Puzhak's styled living spaces reflect the distraction common among modern urban dwellers constantly bombarded by a multitude of media.
