We have already presented the arrangement of the master bedroom and three children's rooms designed by Katarzyna Kraszewska. Today we take a look at the living area of the Warsaw apartment.

The apartment was created by combining two smaller ones. Katarzyna Kraszewska's studio therefore carried out a major renovation. The entire layout was reinvented. All installations were also replaced, as well as floors and ceilings. In fact, the only thing that remained unchanged was the spectacular view behind the glass wall. The investors wanted the arrangement to combine elegance with functionality. They also asked architects to create plenty of storage space. They designed a built-in hallway, a large dressing room and closets, as well as a utility room with a laundry room and a pantry.

The heart of the apartment is the living area that consists of a large living room with an open kitchen. The investors wanted the floors to have a warm, dark color. The coloration they chose was the starting point for the entire project. The frames of the glazing, the base of the floors, the divisions of the wall panels and the edges of the suspended ceilings introduce black lines that break this color palette.

Entertainment zone

A large sofa provides a comfortable place to relax for the whole family, but thanks to its light upholstery it does not dominate the interior. Right next to it stand small round tables, which can be easily rearranged as needed. On the window side, the lounge area is closed by a beige chaise longue. The TV wall has been finished with wood. To prevent the large surface from looking overwhelming, the architects added dynamic diagonal divisions and a distinct veneer grain. The entire space is complemented by striking speakers.

Unobvious combinations

The kitchen arrangement is based on contrasts. A distinct texture is introduced by black brushed granite. Decorative stone was used on the wall and countertop. The effect is deepened by the fluted front of the island. Strong accents were juxtaposed with simple light-colored cabinetry and veneered cabinets hiding home appliances and the entrance to the pantry.

The two zones are connected by the dining area. The distinct grain of the table and the upholstery of the chairs allude to the stone used in the kitchen. The lamp is a striking addition. Its delicate circles accurately illuminate the entire table, while not lowering the interior and allowing to admire the view.
