Big-city eclecticism with the Potorska studio
The interior of the 120 m2 apartment in Gdynia, designed by the Potorska studio, is a reflection of fascination with New York, good literature, wine, and aesthetics.
Each object in this apartment reflects the character of its owner, his work and personal life. The authors of the www.potorska.com project created an intriguing, masculine atmosphere in this place. Subdued azures, blues, and greys are combined with warm nut wood and black accessories. A large part of the interior was constructed with the use of Pfleiderer boards.
The whole apartment was designed in an eclectic atmosphere combining modernity, classic carpets, and nut wood accentuated by works of art.
The simple furniture and the loft style windows, providing good lighting in the whole apartment, give the kitchen and the living room a modern character. What particularly attracts attention in the kitchen part is the impressive collection of wines brought from various parts of the world. Part of the dining room was individuated so as to act as the heart of the living room. Its character is accentuated by a modern Vibia lamp. Deeper, there is a relaxation area, composed of multifunctional leisure furniture.
The study and the library are the places of work. The rooms are tightly filled with a grand bookcase, paintings, and sentimental objects. They owe their classic character to heavy black blinds, a chesterfield sofa, and a classic Persian carpet, while a light desk, a coloured chair, and minimalist desk lamps give it an air of modernity.
The particular rooms are connected by a hall with illuminated wardrobes. Due to its length, additional lighting was provided in the form of glass blocks, which constitute an interesting background when looking from the dining room.
The room with the most masculine character is the somewhat dark bedroom. On the wall, there is the favourite motif of the owner, i.e. a large photograph of New York, taken by the famous Tricity photographer Aga Mróz. It is complemented by a separated, light, glass wardrobe with sliding doors.
A number of avant-garde elements can also be found in the apartment, e.g. in the luxury bathroom and toilet room. The particularly impressive features of the stone bathroom are an illuminated shower panel and the ceiling. The elements attracting special attention in the toilet room are a large mirror by Oskar Zięta, made of polished stainless steel, and the illuminated ceiling with changing light intensity.
