I am willing to bet that you don’t know about this little village in Poland. It is in Międzyzdroje, a town and a seaside resort in north western Poland on the island of Wolin, on the Baltic coast.
For those of you who like to see exactly where this unpronounceable place is, here is the map:
I think it looks great and I am hugely impressed with this little pad designed by Loft Kolasiński.
Studio Loft Kolasiński does both interior and industrial design and they are renowned for their bespoke pieces of furniture that they make. They are particularly known for their penchant for furniture from 1920’s-1970’s.
They have offices in Poland and in Berlin. Having recently discovered them I am loving their work more and more, so I thought I would show you how they designed and decorated this small 90 sq. meter apartment for a couple who wanted a holiday home on this little Baltic island.
The whole apartment was a complete renovation of an old building – you can still see the remains of the old walls and timber beams. The floors were given a polish and they look fabulous. So, with a lick of bag-wash whiter than white paint and rejuvenating the beautiful oak floors a brand new old apartment arose.
Bright and breezy indeed. The focus is on natural light shining in, which really gives it a holiday feel.
Simplicity at its best. What more do you want in a holiday home at the beach?
The glass door to the bedroom is very clever idea – again allowing for natural light to penetrate all areas of the small apartment. Voile curtains and white and grey furnishings in the bedroom give it a calm and relaxed feel.
Simple pieces of bespoke furniture add a touch of class and artiness.
To turn the bathroom into a feature, black tiles were laid in the shower area which adds a little sophistication of the space, but at the same time not detracting from the old-world charm of the structure.
