The king of Russian ballet has been living in St. Petersburg in recent years, but considers Moscow to be his real home. Nikolai Tsiskaridze comes to the capital at the earliest opportunity and stays in his small but very cozy apartment. The artist rarely talks about life and tries not to advertise his personal life. Today, in the HouseChief review, we will open the veil of secrecy and show some amazing photos of the interior of the famous Nikolai Tsiskaridze, as well as tell about the history of the acquisition of Moscow real estate.
A small metropolitan apartment of Nikolai Tsiskaridze with an area of only about 60 sq. m is located in a stalin-era building built in the middle of the last century. The famous house is located on the 3rd Frunzenskaya Street, not far from the Moskva River and the most mysterious park "Neskuchny Sad".
In the past, only high-ranking servicemen lived in the old house. Some of the apartments have been allocated to service personnel. Nikolai Tsiskaridze's future apartment was communal. The artist gradually bought out the neighboring rooms and became the full owner of a small apartment.
The king of the Russian ballet made a good redevelopment, combining the rooms into one spacious living room. The artist decided to highlight only a small bedroom and kitchen. Nikolai Tsiskaridze received competent advice from a friend of the designer and later independently engaged in the arrangement of rooms.
Nikolai Tsiskaridze has always dreamed of living in a spacious apartment. He settled on a classic interior in light colors. The artist initially abandoned the usual luxury and gilding in favor of more traditional techniques.

Oak parquet with French herringbone is laid on the floor throughout the apartment, the walls are painted in light colors. Nikolay Tsiskaridze made a museum of memory out of a spacious living room. Photos of the artist in the most iconic roles, favorite teachers and idols have become a real decoration of the interior.

For the living room Nikolai Tsiskaridze ordered small showcases illuminated from precious woods, behind the glass of which he keeps his commemorative awards and stage costumes. Plaster busts of famous people are placed on classic solid wood stands.

Pastry syringes, Nozzles for cream and Cornets with your own hands:
With a little practice and the right piping bag, you can create cream monograms of any shape, size and duration. For those whose arsenal of pastry accessories is rather stingy, we offer an alternative version of the classic decor of baking with cream, which can be done without special attachments and even without the pastry bag itself.
The first step is to prepare the cream itself and paint it in the desired colors. For our butter cream, it was required to beat 250 grams of soft butter until white, then in portions, without stopping the operation of the mixer, add three glasses of sifted powdered sugar and pour in a couple of tablespoons of milk.
Having colored the portions of the cream, distribute them into pastry bags, and if there are no pastry bags, then simple dense bags with a zip-lock will do.
The selected confection, be it a cake, pastry, cupcake or biscuit, is also covered with a layer of cream, chocolate or icing sugar in a contrasting color in relation to the chosen decor.
Do-it-yourself confectionery syringes, nozzles and cornets
When all the preparatory operations have been completed, you can begin to practice. You should not expect a special variety from the decor without special attachments, but it is quite possible to reproduce classic flowers and cream petals.
For the first tiny flowers, roll up the tip of the pastry bag and cut the fold vertically.
