Everything began with the love she had for the interiors and architecture from a young age. “After several years of work as a translator, I realized that I wanted to do what I loved. Since early childhood, I was fascinated by the architecture and interiors of the palaces of St. Petersburg, that we often visited with the family. When I realized that it was interesting for me to immerse myself in interior design, I graduated from the International School of Design, followed by an internship in London and the implementation of a large project”. The interior designer rediscovered her passion for interior design during her many years as a translator and decided to pursue her first love.
In order to go after her professional dream, then she graduated from the Saint Petersburg Branch of the International Design School which is a member of IIDA – International Interior Design Association. After that, she did her internship in the KLC Design School in London, and easily became one of the few Russian architects and designers to be watched in competition. So, through her professional background, you can see that the interior designer entered in this artistic world to offer an exquisite view of several settings, especially if they share her “passion for an elegant and rigorous Art Deco Style”.
The interior designer makes sure to improve her designing skills by extending her eye on the latest trends and observing the exhibitors and seminars at Design and Art international fairs. While keeping in check the hottest trends, her customers are grasped by Polina’s “passion for elegant and rigorous Art Deco style”.
The designer discusses her creative process when she’s relating to her clients, in order to understand their vision and taste. “Understanding that the interiors are made in this style, not only beautiful but also comfortable for life, recently comes to many of our customers. We pay special attention to the planning solution and the color palette of the interior, carefully thinking over the engineering systems. The result of the work is the interior that meets the wishes of our customers”. Through this process, her intention is to meet their needs, while implementing her design identity throughout.
Polina Pidstan’s interior design projects share a concept that is complex and simple at the same time, due to its focus on comfort, functionality and a high style, that is a modern version of the classic style. With this modern meets classical setting, there’s a not so subtle hint of style, elegance, and sophistication. ” I do projects in these styles with special pleasure and enthusiasm. They are both fairly versatile, which allows them to be combined with each other, and with modern styles. You will often find classic and timeless combinations of forms and materials in my projects”. This definition perfectly sits on the Art Deco Style and American Classics, which are the designer’s personal favorite
As you see through her incredible projects, her interiors share a concept of bright, mixed colors, textures and details that are extremely cautious, and thought to the inch. “For American-style and Art Deco interiors, we try to use furniture from American and English representatives to maintain the spirit of the interior. Over the years of our work, we have created a database of suppliers, of which we are sure. Here there are items created by my personal design, for example, a canteen in the dining room, shelves in the living room, a bar, a console. Doors have a bright accent in this interior: they are tall and made of mahogany, triple glass, and brass”. For her specific projects, Polina has been creating a well-built contact list, with every connection that she requires to embellish every setting.
Every artist/designer is rewarded, and Polina Pidstan was highly recognized by her peers for her outstanding work. “The work was difficult, but the result was worth it. The work on the bar in the living room was also interesting, when I designed it, together with the customers, we looked for an Art Deco Style for the front doors, so gilded figures appeared that decorated the object and made it an ornament to the whole living room. The result of our work was highly appreciated by the judges of the international competition and the project became the winner of the prestigious European Property Awards in London”. Thanks to her bespoke interiors and Art Deco inspirations, the Russian interior designer has been rewarded with several prizes and honorable mentions.
Polina Pidstan’s main goal is to create comfort and sophisticated environments, by displaying the most incredible and luxurious settings. “For me, it’s important that people feel comfortable living in their home. Therefore, I always ask clients in detail about how they spend their day, what they like to do on weekends and where their children like to play. This is how it is possible to understand how it is better to arrange the sources of illumination, where the story is multimedia devices and what size tables to offer to customers”. She also rejoices on her “love for geometric forms and natural wood” which is something that she loves to use when establishing and Art Deco Style settings.
Polina’s latest project sits on an incredible “apartment with an area of 200 meters has a rounded shape on the front side, this moment imposed certain decisions on the design. We selected such a drawing of the parquet so that it would level out uneven forms of the premises. They decided to make the front area of the living and dining room with access to the terrace. From the master bedroom area, you can get through the wardrobe to the master bathroom. The layout has become convenient for the family as a result of clear planning zones”. Through this new statement, you’re able to see that new exciting things are coming into Polina Pidstan’s professional journey!
