Another Polish apartment by Lucyna

Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska (whose work we have featured here and here) emailed us with yet another fabulous dwelling she has completed. This flat is in Gdynia, it is quite small – one bedroom, living room with small kitchen and bathroom with shower. It is designed for rent so the materials that I used are strong :) - solid oak wood in kitchen, hard floors, spain textile on sofa. But of course they should be elegant and nice designs so i used a very nice lamp in the dining – is it rubber so can't be broken, strong paints and wallpapers by scandinavian Flugger and other scandinavian company (Sandberg). It is maybe because this flat is a little bit scandinavian that a man from Sweden and his girlfriend from Poland are renting it now. I really like the masculine vibe of this apartment - Lucyna was smart with this one. She's got typically masculine colours (blues, browns and black) and plaids/checks, and then throws in the feminine touch of some cute bird wallpaper. Perfect for a rental as it will appeal to everyone. It's tiny but it works!

Balmoral Beach blue

More inspiration from the portfolio of Arent & Pyke. Fresh and fun, crisp and inviting. The perfect kitchen for this beachside character house. Blue never looked for inviting.

Beauty at the beach

ScavulloDesign created the interiors of this weekender just steps away from the water in Stinson beach, California. Large doors and windows bring the outside in while the sandy colour palette and blue accents of course give the coastal vibe but the interiors are in no way cliched. Casually elegant and family friendly, durable and darling from wicker to waterproof fabrics. Finally, accents throughout reflect the relaxed feel and include the family's collection of sea shells that they have found on the beach outside. What a lovely spot to get away to.

Singapore apartment

A tiny rundown 550 sqft shoebox flat in Singapore has undergone a remarkable transformation. The owner and her mother needed a stylish and modern home. It was time for a complete rejuvenation by Stanley Tham and Kusnin Tan from KNQ Associates. "While she is not exactly living alone, we wanted to create a chic and functional 'semi-bachelorette pad' which would reflect her personal style as much as possible. We wanted to transform the once ho-hum dwelling into a serene and cozy retreat that she could escape to at the end of a busy day. One which will also not be too feminine." The transformation from before to after is amazing. I particularly like the conversion of a utility room at the back of the kitchen into a private play-and-work room for the owner with built-in seating for lounging and watching TV as well as guest sleep overs. You can read more about the renovation on Home Rejuvenation.
