Usually in the minds of people these terms are often confused due to the fact that they are all associated with the same emotional States. This solemnity, joy, fun.

Decor of Dreams – props for creative photo shoots and intimate holiday


In my spare time I dream … about new and interesting projects or reading a book.

My favorite program … Oh, I don’t watch TV. This time I would spend on browsing wedding blogs for inspiration.

My hobby … – this is my job 🙂 And work as a hobby. In my opinion, is a perfect combination for a creative person.

Best week-end is a stylized … a picnic with your favorite girlfriends. Well, or a family movie night in support of Goodies that we all cooked together!

True love is … when you are whole.

I can’t live without … creativity and sleep 🙂 I love both.

Music that I always danced … Michael Parsberg & safri Duo. But I prefer music that I sing along. For example, the White Guard, Hell, Yakushev, Sergey and Tatyana Nikitin, music of the Soviet cinema.

Do you believe in love at first sight … rather no than Yes. At least with me, it’s never happened. But I’m not saying that this can not be. In our world, actually.

In my activity I like the most … to create beauty and to fulfill someone’s dreams.

To me it is pleasant to cooperate because … I am a positive and sociable person.

If I do something, then … I try to give 100% and do it, like Continue reading
