Some people dare in the architecture of their dwellings, other colors to choose for decoration. But few can match the level of the Russian Sergei Bobovnikov. The antiques dealer, specializing in art of the early Soviet period, sought inspiration in your profession just to decorate a new apartment in St. Petersburg. Every detail has been chosen in order to faithfully recreate the home of a bureaucrat of the Soviet regime would have been like in the 1930s. The owner, who bought the property in 2002, makes clear that there is a communist sympathizer. "Stalinism is repulsive, like fascism," says Bobovnikov. It was the story of the building, built in the early 20th century, who directed him to decorate it that way. For him, it would not be right to ignore the fact that several officers Stalin lived in that building, and the importance of that period had in building the country.
