Three features of Russian apartments that make them less comfortable. Swede's opinion
Love for brown
It can be considered another relic of the Soviet era. But if in those days buyers simply had no choice (for example, finding a wardrobe of a different color was not an easy task), now, with the modern variety of textures and shades, this love is difficult to explain. Probably, the fact is that brown is associated with security, which is why the Russians, who have experienced a lot of upheavals, are so close to it. Be that as it may, in a rare domestic apartment there will not be at least one element of coffee, beige, sand or any other shade of this color.
There is nothing terrible in craving for brown when it comes to roomy living space. But most Russian apartments are not oversized, and this color visually reduces the space. When planning the interior, do not forget that light and cold colors can also make the house cozy. 1/1

A new friend is better than the old two
Annika notes that Russians have a negative attitude towards old furniture, trying to replace it with new ones if possible. Often this makes the atmosphere monotonous, because it is old things that create a warm atmosphere in the house.
Before throwing out an old closet or redoing the floor, you should consider whether they can be restored to give the space a unique look. Refresh without throwing away – this is one of the main principles of the Swedish interior. 1/1
