Ruslan Bukharin

Ruslan Bukharin Luxury Renovations Consultant. Ruslan Bukharin is a luxury renovations consultant and project manager based in New York. In addition he is an accomplished Free Diver, Astronomer and Photographer. Having been involved with many high end luxury developments in some of New York’s most prestigious locations; including the exclusive upper floors of the much heralded and widely acclaimed area of Park Avenue, to the exuberant and opulent apartments located opposite Central Park. However by his own admission his path to success in this field wasn’t always a career path set in stone from an early age. His initial interest in Physics and Astronomy suggested a very different trajectory based on his early childhood experiences growing up in Kazakhstan. “I loved looking at the moon and stars since I was little. I had my first set of binoculars when I was 6 years old and used to always look out…

Irresistible Play Room Design

Isn’t this play room design simply irresistible? Bradley Faye were recently instructed to provide CGI renders for a new refurbishment of a large property in the New Forest, Hampshire. What developed was an irresistible play room design for an inspired bedroom and playroom combination. Working with the Architects plans and visualising the unbuilt space with CGI renders, this has enabled the Hamiltons family who own the property to amend, refine and approve designs of the interiors prior to starting the costly renovation work. Rather than making guess work from floor plans and trying to speculate from a mood board what the end result will achieve, photo realistic imagery enables a client to assess exactly how a layout or designed interior will work in any given space. Mixing textures, colour palettes, furniture and soft furnishings, the final resulting imagery can attain exactly what works for the client right down to ensuring…

Anglepoise & Paul Smith return

Iconic. A word often bandied about in a whimsical fashion. However when it comes to Anglepoise and Designer Paul Smith this description couldn’t be more appropriate. Having collaborated together previously this new collection which arrives in September will be their fourth alliance. Paul Smith himself describes this series as an exploration of scale. Focusing his attention on the Anglepoise type 75™ desk lamp, (created originally for Anglepoise by leading British industrial product designer Sir Kenneth Grange) which Paul affectionately termed all three sizes as ‘Mini’, ‘Midi’ and ‘Maxi’. In this series, designer Paul Smith revisits a unique patchwork of colour scheme previously created for a unique version of the Land Rover Defender. This palette now becomes the inspiration for the Type 75™. Edition 4 with preorders available here reference colours that dominate the countryside; Deep earth burgundy, leaden grey, sky blue, dappled green, rich clay and a surprising dash of…

Healthy Home Furnishings

Healthy home furnishings isn’t often at the top of the list when it comes to Interior Design. Often heavily reliant on fabrics and textures in the aim to create a certain ambience, this becomes the definition of what the designer or homemaker is aiming to procure. However, often overlooked is what health implications certain materials can have on our well-being. For the luxurious materials and furnishings we purchase this should be an important consideration for a healthy home. We love a good carpet here in the UK, however a pioneering study conducted by NIHR Southampton Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit concluded that by exposing dust mite extracts to babies reduced their risk of developing allergies. Dust mites are the most prevalent allergy- triggering substance inducing reactions of asthma in a high proportion of children. In addition to fabrics that attract dust mites the additional cause of concern are VOC’S (Volatile Organic…

Japanese Inspired Interior

Japanese culture is saturated in a respect and love for the natural world. Drawing nature indoors, the natural elements along with colour immersed in historical meaning can create a luxurious palette of elements for a harmonious interior. In this Japanese inspired interior for a bedroom, the bamboo carpet which is environmentally friendly and soft to the touch also has natural anti-bacterial and humidity regulating properties. Bamboo Carpets are very low or free of ‘VOC’S’ (Volatile Organic Compounds) and so a much more healthy alternative to the multitude of evils synthetic material carpets hide releasing formaldehyde into the air for months after. The use of colour traditionally in Japan infuses meaning. The colour red historically denotes strength and passion, it is the colour that ‘gets the blood flowing’. Black however denotes mystery and night. Visually, these combined compliment, yet the colour orange softens this contrast denoting love and happiness in traditional…
