Kirill Istomin displays a masterful eye for detail, old world elegance and charm that very few designers today possess. Before founding his eponymous firm in 2002, Kirill studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and began his career with Parish-Hadley. With offices in New York and Moscow, Kirill Istomin Interior Design & Decoration manages high-end residential and commercial projects in France, Italy, Russia, Kazakhstan, the United States, and Great Britain. His work is worldly, sophisticated, and breathtakingly exquisite.
Today we are visiting a charming countryside home that thoughtfully balances unpretentious and romantic interiors with a warm, casual elegance. French tapestries, Chinese porcelain plates, and floral prints play off of a color story of celadon green, meditative blues, and playful pinks. Reminiscent of Victorian homes at the turn of the century, an eclectic mix of furnishings and objects lend an heirloom quality and storybook finish.
Pure enchantment! Many of these images were previously unpublished, and I love being able to see it all together. Additional information can be found at Kirill Istomin Interior Design & Decoration and more of my favorite examples of his work can be found here.

He can sure do things with a bathroom, and that Cowtan and Tout paper in the first bathroom is marvelous. And that blue wall colour in the dining room is such a wonderful shade. Lots of lovely things to look at in his rooms. He’s a good designer for collectors.
Wow! It will take many days of a return visit to this post to be able to take it all in. I’m not a fan of each room but there are many thing in each room to see and to steal in decorating. I guess he uses the more is more theory. Wonderful antiques and unusual placing of some. Great ideas.
Fantastic! A special treat to see people’s rooms with collections. I am a porcelain fan and am always happy when designers choose to utilize fine pieces. The use of color was so pleasing…..wish more people would bring color back into their spaces.
Although this is not the kind of aesthetic that i like , it’s good to see different kind of approaches to taditional decor and people can form their own opinion.
Every wall is a study in symmetry. It’s maddening….I love it and hate it.
I especially like the Italian gilt wood mirror and his placement of same size small plates all in a column. Also a small hall table that appears grey wood or metal an has a small face of a person, I beleive, LOVE them.
