The interior has been designed as a holiday apartment for a family from San Francisco, couple with two small children. The main design assumption was to create an interesting place that stands out from other apartments, as well as to use this small, but very interesting space in 100%. The goal was to create a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also comfortable and functional.

Due to the fact that the owners of the apartment permanently live abroad, the entire design process was conducted remotely. Thanks to the turnkey finish option, their presence on site was not needed. The turnkey service included the preparation of the interior design, coordination of renovation and finishing of the apartment, i.e. full interior arrangement. This solution provided investors with maximum convenience. When they came to Warsaw for holidays, the apartment was ready, everything was completed down to the cabinets and carpet.

Originally apartment consisted of  two small rooms, bathroom and a separate kitchen, which was small and uncomfortable. The space was cramped, undefined and expressionless. Also it  has not been renovated for years.
The challenge was to create a spacious interior and give it structure with:

  • a place to work remotely (separated from the living room)
  • separated sleeping area
  • living room with an open kitchen

The interior is dominated by bold forms and an exceptional color palette. Natural materials (oak floor and teak work corner) and a large number of accessories make this apartment very cozy, maintained in a hygge atmosphere, conducive to relaxation both in summer and winter. The handpicked furnishings and accessories combine polish furniture with pieces designed by contemporary designers from all over the world.

Kitchen furniture and all the closets where custom made according to the studio’s design. Decorative fronts sets the theme throughout the apartment. We managed to separate a comfortable place to work, which can be closed with rounded red doors.

The heart of the relaxation zone is a soft, comfortable, fold-out sofa and an armchair in black, which is an interesting counterpoint to the marine-colored kitchen furniture.

The whole apartment, despite the use of many colors, is consistent.
