While designing you dream home, more often, we rely on the help of an experts - designers and interior architects. Trusting their good taste and professional experience significantly simplifies the entire arrangement process.
However, what happens when a professional designs their own interior? With a full spectrum of possibilities and rich knowledge in front of them, they must face… themselves. See how interior designer Anna Koszela tackled this challenge when arranging her bathroom.
Located in the Mokotów neighbourhood, this apartment is the quintessence of good taste and refined style. Its interior design seamlessly integrates with the modernist character of the district, accentuating the feminine essence of the arrangement. It captivates with subtlety and elegance with timeless frames. Every detail here is particularly chosen and showcased like a work of art. You can clearly sense the feminine touch of a lover of beaux-arts, a connoisseur of beauty and aesthetic- architect Anna Koszela, who designed this dazzling apartment… for herself.
It was very important to me to capture the modernist spirit of Mokotów, and create a subjective, eclectic interior that suited my taste while maintaining a cohesive style. - reveals architect Anna Koszela.
An excellent example of this, is the bathroom décor, which represents the essence of femininity- the true realm of the owner. It is emphasized by a subtle colour palette, rounded forms of furniture and fixtures, and intricately ornate details. Warm beiges and chocolate browns provide a delicate background for the furniture’s, all of which are selected from the Geberit range and are in a similar colour palette. Its rounded forms, inspired by irregular shapes straight from the natural world, emphasise the feminine element in the design. What catches the eye is the oriental wallpaper with the motifs of cranes, which in Japan symbolize happiness, fidelity, and longevity.
Its delicate pattern and pastel shades bring an additional touch of femininity. This effect is further accentuated by the pink marble flooring, laid in a modernist grid pattern, as well as the fixtures and accessories in rose gold. Particularly noteworthy among the latter is the Geberit Sigma button, with a natural slate finish.
While designing the bathroom in my apartment, I aimed to create a unique and individual space. I like vintage, which is why I was drawn to the organic shapes of Geberit MyDay furniture. The oriental wallpaper is further accentuated by the illuminated mirror from same the series. The rose gold faucet complements the matte Sigma button with a similar finish. - explains the architect.
The feminine character of the interior is also emphasised by the functional aspects of its design, especially the fittings. Therefore, the illuminated mirror from the Geberit MyDay collection could not be missed here. It not only presents itself impressively but, thanks to its direct and indirect lighting features, it ensures comfort during daily skincare and makeup routines. The bold, geometric lines on the outside and the soft natural shapes inside the entire series lead to surprising effects that are pleasing to the eye and enjoyable to use.
The furniture also underscores the feminine character of the room. The washbasin area serves as a dressing table with softly cushioned, illuminated drawers. The tall Geberit MyDay cabinets in Tupe shade provide ample storage space for essential accessories. This choice is deliberate. This exceptional bathroom series combines organic shapes with intelligent solutions in terms of details and interior lighting. Thanks to its diverse, modular character,it fits perfectly into rooms of varied design and size, matching the individuality of lifestyles. An interesting solution is the magnetic board, behind which spacious storage compartments are hidden.
The magnetic board with storage compartments from the Geberit Acanto collection holds all my cosmetics and serves as a display for my souvenir magnets. The composition is continuously changing, evoking memories. - says Anna Koszela.
The décor is complemented by carefully selected furnishings, including both essential pieces that delineate individual areas in the room, such as the white glossy Geberit Soana bathtub and the white toilet bowl from the Geberit ONE series, as well as decorative details that highlight the owner’s vibrant personality.
