A dacha is a country house or cottage in Russia, typically used as a second or vacation home. I found this dacha owned by designer sisters Ilona Menshakova and Irina Markidonova at Architectural Digest Russia and I am completely in love with the outdoor spaces, particularly the use of black which adds a modern edge. And well, black is always a winner in any application. 🙂 The interior is beautiful too – a mix of rustic cabin, antique glam with a Swedish touch.
