Modern Apartment with Classic Touches in Poland, by Republika Architektury_1

This apartment is the creation of Republika Architektury — a firm noted for both modern and classic style — in Nowe Powiśle, Poland. Here you see the basics of modern style — white walls and furniture, neutral colors, sleek lines — while at the same time, there’s a touch of traditional to the place (as in the cozy lines of the couches and chairs in the living room, for example). An open-plan living room flows into the dining area, which in turn adjoins a kitchen with a center island containing more than enough space for the cook to prepare gourmet meals and still engage in easy conversation with guests seated only steps away. Besides natural light from the full-length windows (with discreet blinds for privacy), the home’s ambience is largely created by pendant lights and recessed fixtures that provide illumination without glare.

Top-flight materials are the order of the day here: silk wallpaper in several rooms, oak floors, leather, and Carrera marble (note especially the lavish use of marble in the bath). And, while most furnishings and colors are basic earth tones, not everything here makes a neutral visual statement: dining room chairs are a vivid orange, one bedroom wall (and a matching chair) are a deep bright blue…and the location of the apartment, on the top of a high rise, gives the owners great views of the Vistula River and Old Town as yet another décor element. With splendid views, an easy-living layout, and classic touches in the midst of cutting-edge modern design, this fresh apartment epitomizes quality and livability in a compact space.
