A modern and monochromatic home in Poland

Thank you to architect/stylist/photograher Agnieszka Karaś for sending along these photos she took of a home in Gdańsk, Poland, designed by architect Tomasz Grzybowski of TG Studio. Bright and warm colors, wood accents, fabrics, chrome, glass and crystals - these were the design principles. An important part of the project was also an art. In the guest room the painting of artist Joanna Sarapata is perfectly matched in the niche on the wall that is covered with fabric. The second picture, painted by Tommy Mills, is a composition through which you can go to the hidden bathroom behind the picture. The living room is decorated by the bio fireplace, over which hangs the lamp that is the decorative installation made of glass, designed by TG Studio in collaboration with the Italian manufactory. The remarkable lamp consists of 850 little balls made of transparent glass. Similarly, a large crystal chandelier in the living room, also made to order, contains 1200 crystals that give a beautiful glow and unique atmosphere in the living room. The whole house is illuminated by light in 4000 K color, giving bright colors of light, which imitates natural light, so that bright colors and delicate subtlety fit into the atmosphere and interior mood. The kitchen was made to order by the German brand Siematic, and the appliances was made by brand Gaggenau. In the guest bathroom are featured large-format, black, sintered ceramic slabs with delicate gloss, graphite mirrors and crystalline glass mosaics. Walls on the second floor were created as an original composition designed by TG Studio. A special natural wooden wallpaper, imported from Japan, was used on frames and ceilings. I'm really surprised by the style of this home as it seems a bit cold for Polish climate, and and the fact that the clients wanted colour which I really don't see any of. Also a bit lacking in personality perhaps?

I was born in Gdansk and really looked forward to analyse the photos...was hoping for a theme reflecting the sea location of Gdansk, its industrial history, lots of woods around the town....what a disappointment :(. Don't like the choice of materials, don't like the textures, too busy, too glittery, too flashing for my taste. I love the dog ;)

Gross. Like something from a Victor Pelevin novel.

Too much over the top. If one would take 70% of, it would be o.k.
