Spreading over only 34 square meters, this small apartment is located in a new residential development in Gdansk, Poland. Suitable for a single person or even a couple, the cozy apartment responds to both the needs of young owners, but also to a trend in Polish market, where many young singles or couples can only get mortgage for small apartment for starters. Designed by Helena Michel and Adam Michel of Michel Design Studio, in collaboration with carpenter Konrad Ordecki and developer RAI Przedsiebiorstwo Budowlane, the contemporary flat shows that style comes in any size. Functionality is the main feature of this compact living space, beautified with a selection of stylish details.
Upon entering the apartment, a translucent partition wall hides the elegant interior design. The living spaces are compacted in one large space, including the living zone, elegant kitchen, dining space and bedroom/sofa. Displaying customized furniture throughout – from kitchen cabinets, living space furniture, bathroom and wardrobe – the apartment was carefully constructed to function as a stylish background for a dynamic lifestyle. A powerful focal point is the kitchen backsplash – glass printed on the backside was mounted on the wall, creating an easy to clean, colorful detail. Lined with black glass sheets, the radiators in the living space and kitchen area match the dark furniture and reinforce the designer’s attention to details. Light grey color gres tiles on the bathroom walls and dark grey gres tiles on the floor compose a natural colored environment, perfect for a relaxing bubble bath, don’t you think?
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
