* Overseeing Stalin's 'forced collectivisation' programme -whereby peasant farms were compulsorily seized and used by the state (forcing the tenants into poverty and starvation). Peasants (kulaks) who resisted were sent off to forced labour camps, where they often died.

Simply put, the doors and the drawer fronts are flush with the frame of the cabinet...see what I mean? Very often this style option is not so immediately apparent when featured in a whole kitchen. Other aesthetics tend to grab your eye first. It is actually a subtle detail but hugely effective to replicate vintage kitchens or 'old world' kitchens.

Nadezhda Sergeevna Alliluyeva (9 September 1901 - 9 November 1932) was Stalin's much younger second wife. As a zealous revolutionary in her own right, and friend of the family, Stalin married Nada when he was 41 and she 19, after returning from his second period of exile in Siberia. They had two children (Vasily and Svetlana).

Be aware that when a certain look in kitchen cabinets becomes popular at the upper end, it's only a matter of time before a cheap stock version shows up. That is happening right now with some imported Chinese knock-offs with very American sounding names. Look closely at how tight the door fits within the frame. If that reveal is more than 1/16", you will not be happy with the cabinets...construction or aesthetics. Brookhaven (by Woodmode) is hands down the best value for American made inset cabinetry. If you'd like more details on all that, contact me from the info on my profile page. I have the pricing on various brands to share. Otherwise be very careful with 'never heard of' products out there.

It connects to a private parking bay with space for three cars, and is completely self-contained which means it has a bathroom, bedroom, cooking facilities and access to the street separate to the rest of the house.

Built on the edge of the Isle of Capri, an upscale housing estate on the Gold Coast, Queensland, the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home has a hotel-style swimming pool with a cascading waterfall feature and a private tennis court overlooking the Nerang River.

The property is on the market with Dexters. Ed Burchett, sales director at the estate agents, said: 'The quality of living space on offer and originality of design make this apartment stand out and we are anticipating a very high level of interest from buyers. 

Rachel explained she was inspired by the multi-functional approach taken in European homes. The bed in the master bedroom, pictured, can be folded into the wall to create more space. Meanwhile the bookshelf that separates it from the second bedroom (pictured) can be moved to combine the rooms. There are also two in-built desks in the bookshelf that can be used

The Container Store For those who really want to revamp their entire pantry, begin with the pantry starter kit. Your entire pantry can get an organized upgrade, thanks to this set which includes an OXO 5-piece canister set, two OXO medium cereal dispensers, one 20-bottle spice rack and three Omaha stacking bins (one large, one medium and one small).

The ideological influence of Lenin over the young Stalin can't be underestimated. Similarly, Lenin came to increasingly rely on the pragmatic, workaholic Stalin to be the 'go to' man of the Party when it came to fundraising, and eliminating foes.

Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953, born Josep Dushashvili), is undoubtedly the most divisive figure ever to inhabit the landscape of Russian political history. To many older Russians (and even some of the new generation) he's the 'man of steel' - the inimitable national hero who, with VI Lenin, helped to forge the strongest and most enduring Communist state the world has ever known.

'This is the rare opportunity to purchase a home with a magnificent kitchen designed by an internationally acclaimed chef, perfect for all those buyers who have discovered a passion for baking or cooking during the lockdown restrictions. 

Downstairs, the master bedroom is fitted with a built-in designer bed, walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom, which has a double 'his and hers' shower, free-standing bath and a door leading straight to the garden.

A raised timber boardwalk flanked by palm trees, manicured lawns and a winding stream leads to an outdoor foyer at the front of the house, which opens into a luxurious living area towered over by 19ft ceilings and filled with Balinese-style furniture which carries the tropical atmosphere inside.

If you noticed in the very first image, the 3 adjacent inset doors have a very 'plain' look. therefore the term..'plain inset'. Opposed to 'beaded' inset. 'Beaded' inset cabinet means adding a subtle groove to the face-frame on all four edges of the door.

The sprawling villa took four and a half years to build with every detail - down to the intensity of the light bulbs - carefully considered, to give one lucky owner the chance to feel as though they are living on a permanent vacation.
