The weekend is almost ending now (writing this article on a Sunday evening), and it’s time to share another beautiful interior before it takes an end (damned Mondays). This week’s home is exceptional because it’s not in the Nordic countries, but still, it’s a total feast for the eyes. I’m happy that our trips on my blog take us now to Poland, as Justine’s home is in the Polish capital, Warsaw. I’ve been 2 times in this city, and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back there for the 3rd time.
I could enumerate many reasons why I’ve chosen her apartment for you, dear reader, but let’s see the most obvious ones.
#1 The Scandinavian style of the apartment
This interior has the Nordic hygge feeling and simplicity all over the place. This home has a gallery wall (that almost all Scandinavian homes do) mostly with pieces from Fine Little Day, it’s full of table-, floor-, and pendant lamps (this is a default in Nordic homes, lighting is vital for them), and the new meets the retro (pretty standard in Scandinavia). I always admire homes where the owners manage to combine old with new.
The white floor lamp is from Endon Lighting, the sofa is from the Polish manufacturer, Scandic Sofa.
#2 The classic Nordic design pieces here and there
I can spot a few original interior design pieces, especially from Nordic manufacturers. Justine has an Arum Ferm Living table lamp in the living room, a Shell Pot from Ferm Living on her coffee table, a Shorebird from Normann Copenhagen at the fireplace, her coffee table looks like a MUUTO piece, but not sure, a Muses Ania vase from Ferm Living on her desk (see below the photo), a PH5 Louis Poulsen pendant above her dining table in the kitchen.
The white sofa is from Sits Furniture.
#3 The earthy tones and beige color palette
You know me, I love everything in natural colors, you can’t go wrong with the earthy tones. I love the brown, the beige, the white, the orange, the black, and the few green spots here and there. What a great combination of colors across the whole apartment.
#4 Vintage pieces as focal points
Let’s hold on for a second for this beautiful red Smeg refrigerator. I wanted the very same for our kitchen, but it simply did not go through my husband’s “filters”. What a pity, we needed to change the whole color palette in our kitchen after renouncing this fridge.
The black&white floor adds a great vintage vibe to the kitchen. The floor and the Smeg masterpieces are bulletproof combos for getting some retro feeling in the room. I also adore the vintage desk in the bedroom made by Pastform. Look at those gorgeous glass pendants in the hallway, I wonder who is the manufacturer 🙂
#5 French chicness from the kitchen and the bathroom
In my humble opinion, the black and white floor tiles in the kitchen are extremely in French vogue. I rarely see this type of floor in my region, I wonder why people no longer like simple black&white tiles. The bathroom is a French chicness of the house where the retro free-standing tub takes all the attention. The shower faucet is from Domn w Retro, it’s from copper and it will nicely age with time.
What a great home! I’m so grateful to Justine for letting me show you around her interior. If you would like to see more similar homes, feel free to click on the Vintage my love and Warm interiors tags to get to the archive of my blog.
