Lucyna Kołodziejska Apartment – Relaxed & Bold
Polish Interior Designer Lucyna Kołodziejska has a distinct style that is relaxed and welcoming, with bold graphic murals and colour pops, clean and modern but also accessible and not too serious. We love how she has used the BoConcept pieces in among other designers to achieve this look. The apartment itself is spacious and light and bright, with the bathrooms major talking points thanks to wall murals and bold graphics. A simple backdrop of white and grey walls, blonde timber floors and an easy flow between the spaces keep the look light and contemporary. Intimacy in the open living areas is created through oversized pendants in the dining room, and an area rug and graphic prints in the living room.
The Dining Room features Karim Rashid for BoConcept’s Ottawa Dining Table, teamed with Eames chairs, BoConcept Sideboard and Factory pendants from BoConcept. The clean palette of the room and table, means the use of multi coloured chairs is not too busy, the one chair in red adds just enough pop of colour. The large pendant lamps help create an intimate dining setting within the larger space, and also add to the graphic nature of the room.
The living room uses the same black, red and white palette softened with the faded grey rug. The way the furniture is laid out, and the series of 3 white artworks on the grey wall once again give this room a distinct graphic quality, yet it is still warm and inviting. In this room they have used BoConcept’s Mezzo sofa in black leather, another Eames moulded chair, a BoConcept coffee table (no longer available, try this similar one), Grey Patina rug, white metal stool (both BoConcept) and the floor lamp which balances out the red chair.
The George Nelson Ball clock (available here) suits the slightly muted palette, and adds to the relaxed vibe.
This shot from the top of the stairs reveals the attention to detail in the apartment, clean, precise and contemporary with a warm feel. The Rondo rug from BoConcept complements the space, adding yet another graphic element in an unexpected place. The cow hide also layers in some texture and makes this small space at the top of the stairs very welcoming.
The bathroom has a moodier personality, whilst the same 4 colours have been used, black, white, grey and red accents, the darker space sets the backdrop for a bold image covered wall and graphic floor pattern. Seen here once more is BoConcept’s white metal stool.
Darker beige and caramel tones are introduced in the bedroom, that, with the textiles in the room create a very inviting room for relaxing. The bedroom is simple, however the addition of the console as a dressing table and an armchair make it a great space to relax in, not just sleep in. This Armchair is the Monte armchair in light brown leather.
The wallpaper on the far wall layers in some of the graphic quality we have seen elsewhere in the home. The simple console table is light and modern, and provides just enough storage. The use of hanging pendants means bedsides can be replaced with a more compact and light stool, offering greater versatility.
Looking back on the wallpapered wall.
The designers 3D model reveals the flow of spaces, and even more well considered nooks, where media is stored, and an office nook under the stairs.
