Situated on the south coast of the Baltic Sea, Apartment Gdynia in Poland is a modern dream home with equal parts futuristic and minimalist design. Created by the firm MSWW, this one-bedroom apartment is glossy and bold with lustrous finishes throughout.
Playing upon the client’s favorite color, certain decor and accents reflect orange in a statement chair, cubed ottomans, throw pillows, even the fruit itself within a bowl in the kitchen. Otherwise, the predominant palette is vivid white and black.
The shared space of kitchen-living-dining rooms are bathed in white–smooth walls and wood floors, as well as flat cabinetry. Lacquered built-ins provide ample storage and function, while the swirling tone-on-tone design upon the entertainment wall is quite unique. An elongated high-gloss black panel keeps the television discreet, while an ethanol fireplace ignites off to one side offering a striking dramatic effect.
What is so fantastical is the recessed circular ceiling with LED lighting. In fact, this lighting also appears on the perimeter of the main ceiling creating a cool ambiance for the room. The mood lighting was designed to change accordingly from blue to green to orange (of course!) to pink and so on. A shiny silver chandelier with mercury-like orbs is suspended from the center of this round ceiling inset.
Furnishings are spare and consist of a white leather sofa, a mod orange upholstered chair and a white two-tiered coffee table sitting upon a black rug which seems as if it’s dappled with cosmic stars. The views from this main living area are stunning, expanding out towards the Baltic Sea and over the horizon. Window sills adorned with seat cushions allow for maximum visual enjoyment from this modern dream apartment high above the ocean. A small home office off this zone is light-filled and masculine with a black-and-white desk, sofa and animal hide rug.
The bedroom is a soothing space, in grey and white with ruby red statements. The floral wall covering contributes a quaint feel which transitions into sleek once you step into the ensuite bathroom. An opaque glass partition wall separates the sleeping area from the bathroom, which is resplendent with LED lighting which also finds its way into the tub. A modular white towel heater adds a sculptural element to the space.
Apartment Gdynia is an oceanfront modern dream flat with a space-age vibe and ultra-modern design.
