Traditional Design Gets A Poetic Twist In A Bucharest Apartment

Every region and every country has its own particularities when it comes to pretty much everything. Interior design is no exception. If you visit Romania, for example, you’ll notice that the old houses and apartments have this well-defined layout where the kitchen is a separate room the same as the living space, bedroom and service areas. In some cases you can still catch a glimpse at what traditional interior design looks like.

It’s these unique particularities that the Jazzy apartment from Poem Boem manages to capture in its interior design. The apartment was recently renovated. Instead of getting rid of all the old archtiectural and design elements, the designers chose to preserve some of them and to make them a part of the new decor which is this beautiful mix of modern and traditional.

This is a three-room apartment with a surface of around 70 square meters. Inside, you can find a charming dialogue between traditional Romanian art and modern elements, both of which are influenced by the other. The result is an apartment which offers a sense of familiarity, which makes you feel right at home. There’s poetry in every little detail and this contributes to a really wonderful ambiance.

The furniture and decorations were all carefully chosen. They had to complement each other and to highlight and enhance the beauty of the apartment. In the dining area there’s this stylish table with a round concrete top and tapered woodene legs. It’s complemented by a set of chairs which seem to come from a bohemian garden.
