LOVE this home!!! And love that the art is not hung too high. Very cosy and attractive.

The most important innovation here is hanging the book shelves very high, under the ceiling. The problem behind it is also typically Russian: we love books but Soviet-era appartments are so small.

I have had this idea in my head for 35 years, that bookshelves should be hung high, in order to get them out of the people's way and use up vertical space.
