Recently, we featured a
renovated kitchen in Warsaw, Poland from architect Klara Ostrowska who designed the small space with “vivid color mixed with calmer ones,” Klara describes, at the clients’ request. Inspired by the neighborhood’s industrial past, the clean and modern kitchen is marked by standout warm red cabinets and subtle architectural details. Here, we’ve called out the key elements to recreate a similar look.
