This apartment in Kielce, Poland, was designed by local practice KAZA for two women: a mother and a daughter. It was to slip out of rigid stylistic etiquette and not necessarily blindly follow popular trends. Thanks to the imagination and skills of the designers, the interior exuding elegance, femininity and subtle beauty was created.
The owner – a young businesswoman, having a passion for horse riding, art and travel, shares it with her teenage daughter – asked to design a timeless interior, not necessarily based on fashionable gray or white. She wished to build a climate of coziness and intimacy, and give the interior a sublime character.
The designers of the KAZA studio treated the task of creating ultra-smooth interiors very comprehensively. Interpretation of this theme was reflected not only in the decoration but also in the architectural tissue of the apartment itself. Its geometry was softened and they changed the traditional corners into the rounded ones, which gave the interior “softness” and lightness.
Oval shapes became a repetitive motif in the interior. The streamlined shape was given to a solid, highly impressive, kitchen island. In the bathroom, adjacent to the mother`s bedroom, an elliptical, freestanding bath was installed. A kitchen table, lamps, among others, organic Nafir by Axolight in the dining room, or original coffee tables made of tree trunk (from Malafor Polish design studio) took the form of circles.
The design offers an unobvious palette of colors – a toned one in the living room, more energetic in the daughter’s room, darker and more relaxing in the place of rest. A palette that changes from pastel powder pink, gray, blue, gorgeous graphite and turquoise warmed with gold accents and wood colour, to fresh, girly pink flamingo.
Undoubtedly, it is an unquestionable enclave of femininity and style, also visible in Fairy lamps installed in the bathroom and in the bedroom with the glass-cut diffuser like a diamond.
