This 150 sqm apartment is conveniently located in the Pole Mokotoskie Park neighborhood in Warsaw. The owners wanted the design to reflect their independent way of thinking. They shared some photos of American lofts and remodeled European tenement house apartments with the project developers. Since this was not their first crib, they also wanted some pieces of furniture they loved to be integrated in the new home scheme. A comfortable purple bedroom bed and a blue living room sofa needed to be the essential part of a new-industrial design approach.
The apartment includes a spacious living room, separate kitchen, two bathrooms, bedroom and a home office. Designers form Warsaw-based architectural studio Soma Architekci only employed austere materials: solid concrete, exposed white brick, rough oak floor, cold white and grey colors. All the furniture was made from natural materials. This resulted in a unique composition of industrial and cozy pieces of decoration. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Soma Architekci]
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
