We came across a splendidly simple contemporary apartment in Warsaw, Poland. Designed by by Pawel Sokol and Hanka Bajer of Polish Exit Interior Design Studio, the Eko Park 3 apartment is located on the first floor of the intimate building in central Warsaw. The quite small apartment was designed to be multi-functional and display a modern collection of spaces and furniture. Wooden furniture – white lacquered oak – induces the feeling of a pristine, warm environment and brightens up the spaces.
The main living spaces including the kitchen, living room and dining room, is the core of this beautiful apartment. The other spaces can be reached via 3 meter high Rimadesio doors made of glass and aluminum. The bedroom was designed as a restful, peaceful room, connected to the wardrobe and bathroom through glass walls. Adorned with a bianco statuario wall, the bathroom features a fascinating Zeppelin lamp from Flos hanging over the bathtub from Victor and Rolf. (Photographs by Hanka Dlugosz).
Adding green to the bedroom is easy if you already have a muted color scheme going in the room. It is a color that works beautifully with the likes of white, gray and even brown. While the yellowy-greens add warmth to the bedroom, the blue-tinged variants bring a touch of coolness along with a vibrant ambiance. Here is a pick of 25 gorgeous bedrooms that incorporate green in a gorgeous fashion.
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.
