Finally weekend! 🙂 The polish city Łódź is on everyone’s lips in Poland this week, I believe abroad too! 🙂 Why is so? Because of the Łódź Design Festival that started on Thursday, but more about this in the next post. Today I would like to show you an amazing loft located in that city and designed all in white.

White interiors present bright and serene atmosphere. They are also a beautiful solution for overwhelming small spaces, tiny flats with small windows or flats with some architectural defects. In this outstanding interior, the white color perfectly highlights the original architectural details! The designers of the apartment, Agata Puławska and Sylwia Pogorzelska from OIKOI Studio, took the advantage of the very high interior (nearly 5m high) and designed a mezzanine. There they created a cozy bedroom with a small workspace area, that can still get daylight from the only two, but high windows.

I love Scandinavian design, especially the Swedish. Not long time ago I shared with you beautiful interiors shot by one of my favourite photographer Kristofer Johnsson, you can check out this post here. He works with many talented stylist, I love each and everyone of them and I admire their work very much.

Today I would like to show you another breathtaking interior design shot by Kristofer Johnsson! The great stylist Lotta Agaton created a very warm and serene atmosphere in this flat, designed for Folkhem. I love the connection of different kind of woods in this two-level apartment! The SPLIT dining table and COVER chairs from MUUTO look absolutely fantastic with a raw metal cabinet and a stool made of wood. And those wooden boxes for plants. Brilliant idea!

Yesterday’s first day of Autumn made me look for inspirations in calm palette of blue and gray. I found a very elegant and stylish family home featured in the current issue of Elle Decoration UK. I think you will be all inspired as much as I am.

This stunning apartment was styled by creative and talented Saša Antić. The photos were taken by amazing and one of my favourite photographer Kristofer Johnsson.

As an architect I must admit I like small projects. Some would say that they are easy to design, but I think projects of small buildings are no less demanding than any large building project. One thing is certain, while designing you have to pay attention to every detail, follow many construction and ergonomic rules and environmental aspects.

One small project especially caught my attention. It’s a project of a tiny mountain shelter. The design is very interesting, perfect example of a very well design small form, and because I love mountain hiking I wanted to share it here with you, my dear readers.

How to design the perfect workspace at home?

Although it is very difficult to believe, we spend a lot of time in our life sitting at the desk. We start very early in our childhood, drawing or playing at home, then learning at school and after many years at work. That’s long isn’t it?

Even if we don’t work many hours at home (not everyone has the good fortune to be his own boss) it’s still nice to design a comfortable, dream workspace corner or even the whole room.

This weekend is being quite calm. I can focus on my blog and posts for this month. In the week when I work sometimes this is nearly impossible, but it’s just how it is, and I love my job anyway :).

In today’s post I would like to share with you some good design, exactly one of my favourite chair. I discovered very interesting video on Elle Decoration UK about the production of the Diamond Chair by Harry Bertoia for Knoll. I love a behind-the-scenes glimpse of creating things, spaces or buildings. Knowing the process of construction fascinates me!
