Welcome to a minimalist apartment located in a central urban neighborhood of Poznan, Poland, on the third floor of a 5-storey 1920s building. Designed and developed by the creative team at halo. architecture, the 62 square meter home was divided into a hallway that communicates with the kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Its charming clear lines and inspiring details remind us of the Scandinavian style.
The core of the apartment is a minimalist living room, accommodating only a sofa, a coffee table and a few shelving units. Historical pine flooring and stucco walls were renovated. The color palette consists mainly of white and gray in the living and sleeping area. That, along with the large windows and high ceilings, creates the illusion of bright and large space. Bathroom and kitchen are dominated by white and black, a great background for unique furnishing. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by halo. architecture]
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
