    Looks VERY similar to the flat I’m living in now in Norwich. Very cosy and so much more homely than anything I see whenever I go round other people’s.. I guess they don’t know any better though..

    Looks like my flat now. Would never change it; people always like coming round and think it’s homely

    Three things. The living room was also used as a bedroom and still is in 2017. No wasted rooms. Russians love to put decorative carpets on the wall, as if they are artworks. The use of glass door cabinets to display their elegant glassware and dishes. All very cozy and lovely. Millions of tiny Khrushchyovka apartments are still in use.

    While I am reasonable certain that these were NOT the homes of the ‘Average Josef’, I am still struck by the airiness, friendliness, and dedication to unobtrusive decoration… None at the expense of floorspace.

    That said, the large and beautiful cabinetry seems almost wasteful, yet, they bring a lovely feeling of ‘hominess’.

    Great photo collection.

    You gotta love that seventies boom box, and being a carpenter I love the woodwork.
