Whenever I’m in Warsaw, especially in early autumn, I always see many similarities between our Polish capital and Paris. I don’t know if it’s a matter of tall, elegant tenement houses, romantic parks or wide avenues with densely growing trees, but walking along Marszałkowska or Mokotowska street makes me feel like being in Paris. I had exactly the same impression after visiting this apartment in Old Ochota for the photoshoot of the interior designed by Anna Białobrzewska from In Architekci studio.
The architect called this place Little Paris and indeed, many elements of its arrangement refer to the French style. But what I particularly liked about this project was the fact that, like our capital, it resembles the famous city of love, but at the same time many fragments of the original furnishing of the old Warsaw tenement house has been preserved, e.g. window frames, pine floor or these beautiful, double-leaf doors. Thanks to the subtle and very feminine decorations and soft, pastel colors you can feel the Parisian spirit here but it is still our Polish Old Ochota district – a bit mysterious and full of unique charm.
