This Renovated Warsaw Apartment Masters the Vintage-Contemporary Mix

Is Piotr Paradowski the best interior design studio you’ve never heard of? We stumbled upon the latest project by the Krakow-based firm on Instagram this week and were surprised to find very little about the studio online besides their own site, which includes several richly-hued, vintage-inspired projects much like the renovated Warsaw apartment we’re featuring today (as well as the incredible organic beach retreat found here). The 1,000 sq.ft. flat masters the vintage/contemporary mix, with 1960s and ’70s pieces like a geometric Martinelli Luce coffee table, a Tobia Scarpa sofa, and a Mario Bellini lamp standing alongside lights by RBW Studio, a Pipe chair by Sebastian Herkner for Moroso, and a ceiling lamp by Michael Anastassiades. But perhaps the most impactful thing about the apartment is its dramatic sense of color, including a orange glass shelving unit, a mustard-upholstered headboard by Dedar, an intensely avocado-hued hallway, and a moody green bathroom. The bas-relief over the bed is by the owner of the apartment himself. Scroll through for some major welcome-to-the-weekend inspo!
