Irbeysky District, Russia

House of Evgeny Smolik

A self-taught Siberian craftsman creates a fantastical and personal design for his 19th century village house. 

Inspired by fairytales and traditional Russian Lubok print, the house of Evgeny Smolik is a village home turned surreal palace.

Covered in intricate wood carvings and handmade, fantasy-themed furniture, the home is truly one-of-a-kind, and reflects the eclectic personality of its creative owner.
