Ekaterina Mikushina is a Russian interior designer who has dreamed of this career since childhood. Her style can be described as simple with a luxurious look. For her projects, she is inspired by nature, music, a fragrance, or objects.
For one of her clients, she created the project Scandinavian Simplicity. The ideas for the house came about after Mikushina was invited to the client's home, after which they thought together about what the house envisioned. The project fits within Mikushina's own design style, because there is a minimum of small details. Only the most important furniture, natural materials and earthy, calm colours are present in the house. In addition, the staircase is the centre of the composition. In this project, unlike in previous ones, Mikushina had the chance to embody all her own ideas. When she works with designers, it is often difficult for her as a designer, considering that the project does not match how she sees it. When she works with clients, she always tries to put herself in the client's position. She says that the design should emphasise the personality and not overshadow it.
For the palette of materials and colours, she drew inspiration from nature. She finds the combination of colours and materials particularly enchanting. Because she herself lives in a busy city, she wanted isolation from nature and peace from the turbulent environment. That is why she chose natural materials and warm, natural tones that do not tire the eyes or the mind.
The project fits within Mikushina's own design style, because there is a minimum of small details.
In addition to furniture made to order, they chose different brands such as Ligne Roset Prado, BLU DOT, Flou, CEA Design, Bonaldo and Fuoripista. Apart from furniture, Mikushina believes that it is not necessary to add many details to create warmth and cosiness. When you choose the right shapes, materials and colours, it ensures that a space automatically gets the right atmosphere.
Mikushina creates projects from her heart and therefore has no bucket list of projects or collaborations. She watches what comes her way and always makes sure that the clients' wishes are met.
