Russian Design: Dachas to Deco

Clearly, home to one of the most Iconic Architectural 
Silhouettes in the World: The Onion Shaped Domed Roof. 
 Russia's Design Style is Strongly Graphic, Bold and often Gilded in Gold
 - until you go Countryside, where you'll find it to be Charming, Rustic and Woody. 
 Back in Manhattan I had the utmost privilege to work with several 
Russian Artisans and let me tell you, their skills
were off the chart! So why not click on to a little "From Russia with Love"
and begin the scroll down to check out just why Russian design is 
so inspiring.
