Where did you get the hurricane candle holder? - I love what you've done with your flat! It looks absolutely amazing. I too have have a faux fireplace and I can't seem to figure out what I want to do with it. But after seeing your living room, I think I may have an idea now. Could you tell me where you purchased the hurricane candle holder in the pic? Thanks so much for sharing!

Lauren Bryan Knight added this to My Houzz: Love Abounds in a Small London Flat
The compact apartment includes this open living and dining area, which is anchored by a lavender accent wall. The papier-mâché elephant head is from Anthropologie, one of Kolmakov's favorite places to shop for home decor accessories.Sofa: Kivik, Ikea; elephant: Savannah Story Bust, Anthropologie
Mitchell Parker added this to 28 Great Homes Smaller Than 1,000 Square Feet
Size: 560 square feet; 1 bedroom, 1 bathroomWho lives here: Attorneys Sasha and Sabrina KolmakovLocation: London A neutral palette keeps things bright in this renovated flat even in the foggiest of London weather. Scandinavian style, meanwhile, maintains a clean aesthetic. See more of this home
Laura Gaskill added this to Personal Spaces: Small-Kitchen Designs
Small-Space Living in LondonWho lives here: Sasha and Sabrina KolmakovLocation: South Kensington, LondonAt only 560 square feet, Sasha and Sabrina Kolmakov’s London apartment has to pack a lot of living into a small space. In the open-plan kitchen-dining-living space, soft sconce lighting, small-scale furnishings and open cupboards with glass shelves keep the room feeling surprisingly spacious. “Although our flat is small, it is very functional and allows for six guests around the dinner table,” says Sabrina. “With a little glass of wine and a nice meal, we love to chitchat and share our adventures.” See the rest of this home
