We have more than once spoken about the fact that I love old things, for their quality and the stories they have.
Very modern and bare apartments are not for me.
For me there is a contemporary elegance created by the charm of natural materials, inspiration from the past, furniture tailoring; this elegance never tires the eyes.
It is what I call the ‘well made with taste’ category.
This apartment in Warsaw, furnished by Marta Chapkra of Studio Colombe, is a perfect example of this elegance. To tell you the truth, all the work by Studio Colombe is an example of this.
The wooden herringbone floor and a sophisticated choice of colors form a background for some refined pieces. The choice of natural colors, all light, is vibrant. White is presented in different hues, it is never simply white. Textiles introduce color and structure.
The kitchen, custom made like a lot of the furniture, is original but simple.
The insertion of wooden circles, the division in panels, the two colors, the marble backsplashes are all endearing elements.
The art, small and discrete paintings, add interest without dominating the scene.
I would move into this apartment tomorrow, without changing anything.
Rarely do I feel like stating something like that but in this case the balance between the quality and the taste of the decoration has really impressed me.
Studio Colombe‘s house looks comfortable to live in, really comfortable, full of wardrobes and easy to live in spaces.
