For Igor, Happy Interior Blog was created with the idea that home is not just a simple space, but instead, an important personal haven. A space that encompasses a person's visual identity as well as a shelter to nourish their own sense of happiness.
"For me the most important interior style aspect is personality. I like to think of my home as my visual identity of who I am, what I like, what I am interested in, what defines me. Such a home is a perfect home to me."
