An apartment from the 1930s in Warsaw, Poland is getting an update with a Parisian accent thanks to Marta Chrapka from the design studio Colombe Design. This is a stylish space that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Foldable glass doors with wooden frames designed by Chrapka divide the living room and dining room. I love the chevron clad hardwood floors in the living room, they add style to the room. The velvet fabric ‘La Panthere’ adorns the walls of this recessed seating area. Cladding, bare wood tables, and a large mirror highlight a non-working fireplace clad in marble that is now used to store books. Bookcases on either side of the windows are strategically placed to save space.
The dining room is furnished with black plywood chairs, three-armed ceiling light, sideboard, and steel lamp with an exposed light bulb, all by Chrapka and her design team. A French style chair has been converted into a unique dog bed.
In the master bedroom, the paneling is done to cover the wall and hide drawers and cabinets. The bed is in this construction and drawers are also used as bedside tables. Gorgeous fabric-inspired wallpapers are used as wall art and there is a cool sideboard that was created by the designer herself.
In the kitchen, the black iron frame of the custom-made cabinets was inspired by the Orangery in Versailles. Brass door handles add to the decor. A unique vintage-inspired lamp highlights the seating area in the kitchen.
Every room in this apartment, even the hallway, is eye-catching, unique and playful.
