Ever since a young age, Yana has been entranced by design. As a child, Yana loved peeking out windows and always had a desire to visit her neighbors to see how they designed their homes. Drawing out plans of houses on the asphalt, Yana did not realize, but her path to becoming an interior designer was already unfolding.
Now based-in Sacramento, California, Yana serves clients who are bold, unusual, and ready to transform their homes into spaces unlike anything most have seen before. Together with her clients, Yana creates spaces that plow new paths in the design world.
Designing in the styles of Wabi-Sabi, Modern, and Minimalist, Yana draws inspiration from the abundant beauty in nature. Yana was attracted to Wabi-Sabi as it emphasizes the depth and texture of natural materials and objects with the soul and breath of eternity. Unlike many design studios, Yana stands apart for her ability to create spaces that tell stories.
Obtaining the task and planning the house with agreement from the architect.
Agreement on the cost and timing of design, the approximate budget for construction, and costs for furniture and interior materials. This includes analysis of the scope of work on the project and discussion of the cost of all services included in the development of a complete interior design.
Creation and approval of the Price Offer. Each project requires an individual approach. All these nuances affect the time and cost of various resources:
The signing of the contract signifies acceptance of the project and its terms. Additionally, this commences the project.
Completion of the Technical Task document. This includes the collection of reference interior images. This is to serve as the foundation upon which the design of the future house will be developed.
Based on the collected information, the development of furniture planning and the conceptual solution. Both a flat and 3D plan of the whole house (gray model) are formed. The planning decision is presented to the client and describes where the furniture is located. Everything is clearly agreed upon and added to the project details. At this point, the client must agree that the planning decision meets their requirements.
Development of 3D interior visualization in accordance with the agreed planning decisions (this is typically the longest stage, with an approximate duration of one month).
All developed 3D Visualizations are collected and sent for approval. The client must review the visualizations and send comments and feelings regarding the design. If there are adjustments, they are made by the designer. The agreed price includes one round of adjustments.
Development of a complete package of working documentation. This includes documents on the following subjects:
The aesthetics of the style in which we will work are characterized by and include austerity, asymmetry, depth of space, cave motifs, the contrast of cold stone with the warm color of aged wood. The imperfections of the forms emphasize the close connection with nature. Only nature inspires us to create our interior.
We select furniture that is made of natural materials and has a concise shape and "soul". Furniture should not load the space, but on the contrary, emphasize the comfort and depth of the room. Each space should be designed concisely and comfortably, according to the size of the project without incomprehensible details and protrusions. Use of aged wood, decorative plaster, micro-cement, concrete, glass, and metal is relied upon to sculpt the environment.
With competent lighting, not only do you decorate the room and give it a stylish look, but also cheat on repairs - even a simple design with remotely selected accents can incite bohemian, elegant, or restrained environments, depending on the desired effect.
We do not use more than three colors in any room. The interior should have one main color - white, gray, or beige. It should be the background to create an interior design. Do not use bright and open colors in large quantities. They should be accented. There is a palette of colors that match each other in proportion while also complementing each other.
We use only natural decor that complement and create a pleasant, individual, and deep atmosphere in the house. These can be large clay jugs, pampas of dried flowers, wicker pots and baskets, jute carpets and woven products, macrame on the walls, clay vases and pots, (especially when they are large), and linen textiles and dark dishes.
With the arrangement of furniture, main and secondary zones arise, as do communication areas and private rooms. Furniture planning depends on the area of projects, the number of windows, and the availability of communication. Practical in implementation, all elements should be easily accessible and simple.
