Dusty Yellow is the first project carried out jointly by architects Agnieszka Dominik and Marlena Banaszewska under the name La Fala Studio.

Optimistic arrangement

The 55-square-meter apartment is located on the third floor of a post-war building. The tenament house is located on Belwederska Street in the Mokotów district. It is an attractive location due to the large amount of green areas in the neighborhood.

The investors asked the architects to develop a comprehensive interior design project with author's supervision. The apartment is intended for rent, so the clients had no specific expectations regarding the style or color scheme of the arrangement. The designers were given full freedom in developing the project. So they decided to create an unconventional interior with a modern character, which will be saturated with colors and positive energy.

Second life

Due to its technical condition, the apartment required a major renovation. Previously, the kitchen, dining room and living area were separate spaces forming a closed layout. Limited by partition walls, the interior was narrow.

- However, we found an advantage of this small apartment, which undoubtedly became two balconies located on opposite sides of the floor. We decided to use them and propose an open layout connecting the living area with the kitchen and dining room. Thanks to such a procedure, the apartment became more spacious, and the exposed space was illuminated — recalled the owners of La Fala Studio.

Shaping with color

Due to the considerable height of the rooms, the area from the window glyph to the ceiling was cut off in color. This resulted in an illusory lowering of the ceiling level and a smooth transition from vertical to horizontal partition. As a result, the entire apartment is wrapped in an eye-pleasing blue hue. Such a procedure made the space cozy and pleasant to look at.

Strong accents

The existing original wooden parquet floor was also successfully restored. After repairs, it gave the interior a peculiar character. The vintage furniture was also comprehensively renovated. A recurring element of the arrangement are the arches, which were exposed on the walls, mirrors and in the details of the wall lining in the kitchen and bathroom. Attention is also drawn to the upper cabinet in the kitchen, which was finished with a pink mirror.

Some sunshine

Natural light was also brought into the dark bathroom. To achieve this, the architects cut a circular opening in the wall. The effect is deepened by finishing the room in a distinctive, pleasing yellow shade. Two-color long curtains complete the arrangement.
