I've been feeling less and less inspired by many of the homes I find on the web these days. So many interiors that I am coming across seem to feature the same sort of ideas over and over again, and not much is looking unique anymore. I have seen so many cluttered, collection filled, flea market sourced, filled to the brim with tchotchkes homes that I can't stand it anymore. Plus: white walls, yep, painted floors, yep. I get it.

(And here is where you can call me a complete hypocrite, because chances are I will paint walls white, and try painted floors too. So bookmark this post. I promise.)

It was such a refreshing change to see this beautiful interior from Tamizo Architects Group in Poland. I love the restrained palette of white and black, with the pale natural wood tones. I love how graphic the space is, but remains soft with the sheer curtains. For me, this is a perfect play of contrasts.

The design also perfectly balances the weight of each element. I love the tension of the large black light shades over the dining table.

Those stairs are simply sublime.

I also think that it is a great showcase of how black can be used in an interior and not swallow the space in its darkness.

Great post Sarah! LOVE those light shades ... gigantamous (no, not really a word...LOL) It's really well done. Perfect balance of scale, light & dark, and fun!
