The Most Iconic Projects
There are two the most famous projects of Kirill Istomin: Apartment a-la-Russe and Winter garden residence. The first one is decorated with wallpapers, furniture and fabrics from the United States. The place could be easily mistaken for a Manhattan loft, even though its location is in the heart of Moscow. Designer Kirill Istomin wanted to create a perfect living retreat for a family with two children, where the feelings of “sun and joy” would take center stage. Therefore, many fresh colors were used: walls and ceilings display juicy lime, soft lilac and ripe cranberries.
While winter garden residence has a green palette that makes this place very natural. The richness of the traditional interior decoration with a four poster daybed as the central focus of the room creates a warm and cozy atmosphere.
Mr. Istomin also writes a column in “Elle Décor” magazine. Rizzoli International Publications (USA) has released a decorator’s glossary illustrated by Kirill Istomin – “The Pocket Decorator”. The articles about Mr. Istomin and his work are regularly published in leading Russian and foreign magazines.
Mr. Istomin has received various international awards. He has twice been awarded by Decorators Club of New York, first for “Excellence in Interior Design of Residential Architectural and Historical Landmarks” and for “Best Design”. In 2006 he was awarded the Association of Architects of Moscow Award for “Best Design of an Office Building”.
Mr. Istomin’s projects in the high-end residential and commercial designs field are internationally known in the United States, Italy, Arab Emirates, Russia, France, and Great Britain.
