Artist's apartment in Poland. Interior full of Polish design.


Today you're gonna see the interior of Emilia Obrzut, Polish graphic designer, owner of one of my favorite profiles on Facebook, Wysoki Połysk (eng. "High Gloss"). On this profile is where she presets used designer pieces of furniture and home decorations bought (by her and her readers) at flee markets, internet auctions and...in trash.  Emilia has a great talent for finding low-priced classic pieces.

You know what I love about this place? The things I often show in my series "Artist's apartment" - natural character, nonchalance, it also clearly shows the passion of the owner. Wooden floors and white walls provide a perfect background for the findings of the owner. Furniture and objects from different eras, from IKEA, old and new, have been brought together in a completely natural way. The interior is a consistent and very cozy.


I often search for antiques on the internet, I love old furniture. As you know in the apartment that I bought there is a lot of old furniture and I don't want to throw it away, so my apartment is gonna have some old pieces. And you? What kind of interesting antiques did you find? :)

Did you think your kitchen is supermodern? Look at this amazing vintage kitchen from 1956



This amazing kitchen is from 1956 (and is located in US) and have never been used! 


As the seller writes:
These vintage GE appliances are original to my house circa 1956. The house was never occupied and appliances were never used. The manuals were still taped to the appliances. I purchased the home in 2010 and I am selling: side-by-side wall refrigerator, wall oven, cooktop, double bowl washboard sink, and dishwasher.

It's so cute! And it's pink! And if I were Smeg I'd buy it (as it's for sale) to create a mini-museum :)

Geometric interior design trend | TRENDS


I have been seeing geometric patterns everywhere recently. They're on the floors, walls, furniture. And on the quilts, cushions, notebooks, mugs. What is especially popular are triangles and patterns combining them. The patterns are usually in bold contrasting colors but we can also spot some delicate and pastel combinations.
Why are triangles so popular? Because they can be used in so many creative ways! They look best on floor tiles - that's when they define the whole interior. We can also paint an interesting pattern by ourselves - like we can see below on the stairs. Or we can make our kid happy by painting their wall in a fun geometric pattern, what is so in trends right now.

Pink is fun! ♥ Pink architecture, pink interiors - contemporary and historical examples | ♥♥♥ VALENTINE'S DAY


What I think of Valentine's Day I wrote in the posy on brothels' interior design last year :) :)  

For this year's VD a color considered unserious in serious interiors. It's weird for me that some people, and even interior designers, are so negative towards pink. Personally I love this color, my closet if full of fuschsia clothes and when skiing I wear a Barbie-pink jacket :) This color has many many beautiful shades and doesn't necessarily need to look like this:

Because pink architecture can be good:
