▲Olga FradinaOlga Fradina這十五年來一直從事室內設計與相關工作，主要設計領域是住宅。
I have been engaged into design and interiors implementation for 15 years.. I prefer to work with modern styles, to mix them and to use details from different eras and cultures. I believe that the «fusion» principle is the most natural way to create really “live” interior that is individually and personally oriented. In my projects I use technical innovations, advanced engineering, new materials。
The name of a new project by the Olga Fradina Interior Design was born while its creation. Startingfrom an apartment for rent, it has been gradually transformed into the client’s place of power and space for meditations and tea ceremonies with sole-mates. The client is a famous Katya Bakhirka, an owner of fashion brand Bakhirka Apparel, a founder of a charity foundation devoted to saving the indigenous people of the Amazonia – The Deep Forest Foundation, and a hip-hop singer known as BAKHIRKA. Here, in the DzenSpaceClub project, design became such a medium., and adding on Katya’s request the deep blue to the gray color scheme。
By moving a wall dividing the bathroom, entrance hall and a living room, there appeared to be a more spacious bathroom, thus a full-sized shower unit could be installed, and in an entrance hall there emerged enough place for storage systems. It became possible because all the furniture but for chairs and a sofa was designed by Olga Fradina exclusively for the project.
Olga Fradina prefers to create mixtures of different styles to give her design eternal, not transitory trendy look.
A multifunctional space including kitchen zone, dining area, home office, wardrobe room, and tea lounge looks not overweight due to forms and colour balance, involving a dark ceiling, which has made the room seem higher. There are no doors between rooms in the apartment, thus enhancing a feeling of vastness.
光滑的微水泥在地板上、墻上和內置的存儲和廚房外立面做瞭一個完美的背景與生動的紋理:低木茶幾,由Staritska maysternya Olga Fradina的設計、木藤Eichholtz柳條椅子的木架子，竹百葉窗，劍麻地毯，磚在油漆，和最後但並非最不重要，木墻板的天花板Designer’s vision suggested a dark-grey floor and wooden chairs on it. This combination served as a boon to the whole project. Smooth microcement on the floor, walls, and built-in storage and kitchen facades made a perfect background for objects with vivid texture: a low wooden tea table, made by Staritska maysternya by Olga Fradina’s design, wooden rattan wicker chairs by Eichholtz, wooden shelves, bamboo shutters, sisal carpet, bricks under paint, and last but not least, wooden siding of the ceiling.
The bedroom appeared to be rather small, so there are only essential things: a bed, a mirror, a stool for a bedside table, and a shelf with clothes hangers. There is a picture The Burning Bush by a modern Ukrainian artist Alexander Bogomaz above a bedhead. Art in the interior is an integral part of Olga Fradinas projects. While designing any interior, Olga always wonders which artists works would enhance the air of this interior and would gratify clients for years. In this case Olga envisioned a picture from a sacred series by Alexander Bogomaz for two reasons: these works matched the palette and reminded for the designer a Tibetan thangka, but for a Christian context, thus empowering an Oriental feel of the project. This very artwork was chosen with a client at the artists studio.

Quiet colouring of a Nature and sensual textures are the main subjects of my new interior. The customers wanted an apartment as a place of meditation and absolute relaxation – of both visual and tactile origins. That was a reason for the presence of many “soft” forms and natural materials, originally designed objects from their creators and pieces of craftsmanship. In a living room one can find side by side coffee tables and chairs by Faina Collection, dinner table by Staritska Maysternya, vintage Transcarpathian wool carpet (locally known as “lizhnyk”), ceramics and graphics by Olga Fradina. Almost monochrome color scheme of the interior looks like a perfect background for emotional rich textures and works of art.

Aesthetic medicine is a special service sector. My customers expected to get rather laconic workspace, reflecting high professional standards and promising warm and cozy environment. In order to create the right atmosphere, we used mild nuance shades – delicate nude and “foggy” gray. In addition we provided very soft lighting which seemed… diffused in the air – due to hidden sources. Natural wood details and tactile wall decoration were added to complete an image.
