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?

Villa Tresamores in Punta Mita

Last month while I was vacationing in Sayulita, Mexico, we rented a car for a day trip to visit some neighbouring towns. One of them was Punta Mita. While there I visited Hana Waxman's beautiful store. You can check out some photos of it I have up on Instagram here and a pillow I purchased that I  absolutely love here. In honour of how badly I'm missing being in Sayulita I thought I would share this jaw-dropping villa Hana designed. Sooooooo stunning, and while I'm dying over those views, the deadly sin that might do me in is lust over all of the light fixtures.

Modern and minimalist Californian renovation 

The renovation and extension (a second floor was added) of this 50s era home saw the floor plan reworked and a modern, minimalist approach taken as to materials and textures. The simple colour palette of white with black accents is warmed by wood giving the rooms an almost Scandi vibe but this is no Nordic abode. The exterior and the pool side are definitely a Californian dream. Green Oak Residence by SIMO Design.

A touch of mid-century modern in a Long Beach home

I wanted to share this project by Amber Sokolowski of Soko Design because it shows how to inject personality into a home without much architectural interest. A fireplace in the dining room is a great feature, and despite it being somewhat oddly placed, is now a focal point when wrapped in graphic tile. Love the teak dining set adding some mid-century funk and adore the large scale artwork in the foyer.
