NAP Żoliborz - an architect's showroom

On Sunday I featured some work by NAP from Poland. They also sent along photos of their architect's showroom and workspace and I am absolutely blown away buy this space. Dark colours, a mix of vintage and modern, original architecture (original window joinery, doors, jambs, wooden floors and layout of the rooms were preserved in the renovation)...it's a style I always gravitate towards. NAP decided to paint the wood floors and stairs dark, and this led to shades of grey, graphite and peach used throughout. All furnishings and accessories are available through their store - a mix of Vitra, DCW Editions, Gubi, Carl Hansen, Tom Dixon with EMU, Fatboy and Fermob in the garden space.

Sunday at the racetrack

NAP is based in Poland and creates fabulous home furnishings that can be purchased online and through 6 brick and mortar shops (they also sell some really great brands like Artemide, Lampe Gras, Gubi and Tom Dixon). They recently started dabbling in interior design and their first project was the decor of a racetrack in Warsaw, located in a modernist building built in 1939. In 2 months they outfitted a 3 level, 1500 sq m area consisting of bars, restaurants and lounge areas. Not only are the furnishings gorgeous (NAP, Gubi, Tom Dixon and Zoffana wallpaper), but I love that they dug through archive photos of the building in an attempt to replicate the interiors as they would have been back in the 40's. Art deco design at its finest.

Helen's House by Ministry of Interior Affairs

Marcin and Magda Konopka of Polish design firm Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnętrzach (Ministry of Interior Affairs) has sent us photos of one of their latest projects. The other day I featured a "small" apartment in Sweden and was told that 71 m2 is not small by Swedish standards. Okidoki, my last home was 800 sq ft and yep, it was small! In this case though I think I can safely say this is a HUGE house at 300 m2 and no one is going to argue that fact. MSWW has created a warm yet modern home with light oak clad walls and floors, concrete elements, a grey colour scheme, comfy furnishings and some fun lighting. (More of their projects can be found here)

Scandinavian-style guest house in Poland

If modern minimalism is something you're into, which I am because sometimes I just need something that is easy on the eye, then I think you'll dig this guest house in Chociwle, Poland designed by Loft Kolasiński. With a Scandinavian, mid-century feel this dwelling is a tad masculine, a touch funky and a smidge hip. What a cool collection of furnishings from the 30's, 50's, 60's and 70's from Italy, France, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Poland - including a polish HI-Fi stereo from the 80's. I want those sofas soooo badly. (Photos: Karolina Bąk
