The bedroom is dominated by noble shades of grayand lilac. There is practically no black. White is in the details. A wide comfortable bed, a glass bedside table, a small work desk with a comfortable chair - all this is available for implementation in any home and even apartment. And this is how the house looks from the street. If it was not located in Warsaw (Poland), one would think that this is a modest English mansion on one of the London or Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia, USA) streets. Our opinion:- We liked the amazing simplicity, lack of pretentiousness and the pleasant atmosphere of the house. If some expensive materials were used to decorate the house, then this does not protrude. Everything looks modest, but very beautiful.
