INTERIOR DESIGN / FULL SUPERVISION THE CARRIED OUT WORK
APARTMENT IN A VINTAGE MOOD
The implementation of this apartment project located in the small apartment house in the heart of Konstancin was a pleasure. Investors gave us a short list of dreams and a large package of trust in the aesthetics of the interior of the apartment. Thanks to this, once again we have managed to design a fully original space in our favourite, eclectic atmosphere.
The layout of the rooms underwent a small correction. We’ve changed the dining room and living room to get more daylight in the seating area. We connected two neighboring rooms with each other, demolishing the wall in the middle. Thanks to this treatment, we enlarged the room of the daughter of the owners.
We exchanged a wardrobe with a bathroom, thus getting a bath room with a window. We changed the layout and height of the door. In the lobby, in front of the main entrance, behind the old, wooden, two-winged doors brought from Belgium, we hid the wardrobe.
We decided to demolish the wall between the kitchen and the dining room. However, to partially separate the spaces from each other, we proposed a glass, metal frame finished with a brass belt. This solution also resulted in better lighting of this part of the flat. The kitchen fronts have been covered with brass sheet, which in time will obtain a natural patina. Kitchen island, countertops and details on the wall and eaves made of Siquartz composite.
Knowing the preferences of the owners and seeing their openness to new solutions, we proposed quite bold aesthetic connections.
In the living room and dining room contemporary design combined with furniture and vintage accessories. A very important role in this interior is played by decorative lighting. We put an accent on the Italian chandelier from the ’70s in a stilnovo style hanging above the table. A plaster, secession rosette on the ceiling is a sophisticated, pre-war detail. In turn, the original, three-arm wall lamp placed above the commode is a vintage find from Denmark. The central point of the living space is a minimalist, corner fireplace.
On the floors in the open part of the apartment were laid delicately bleached, oak planks in a layout called the French Herringbone.
In the bathroom, to the walls painted in geometric patterns in the color of two shades of powder pink, we chose gray tiles with a pattern reminiscent of terrazzo. The top under the washbasin is our original composition of stones and glass immersed in a cement mass, i.e. real terrazzo. A powdery shade of dirty pink also appears on the floor in the entrance hall on a rug arranged with tiles with a modern geometric pattern.
In the bath room we placed a free-standing bathtub. A Polish vintage commode stood under the window, with a round, white washbasin on it. A brass wall lamp hung over the refined mirror at the auction. On the floor between the black, hand-made tiles in the shape of a fish scales, we decided to use a grout with flecks of golden glitter. The ethnic climate has given this space a rattan lampshade while the brass accessories (hangers, handles, candlesticks) have added an elegant character to the interior.
We like this project and we are happy that the owners feel great in their new home.
