This 29 square meter apartment located in Wroclaw, Poland is a perfect example of how living in a small space doesn't mean you have to compromise your comfort or style. The flat is designed by 3XA studio. One of the most important things to keep in mind when designing small spaces is to make use of vertical space. Additional floor for bedroom, storage under the stairs, wardrobe in the hallway... Every centimeter of the apartment is completely functional. What I like most about this place is exposed brick wall and stucco decoration in combination with new materials and contemporary furniture. Although I'm not a big fan of this particular type of plywood, I think it works well here. Also, simple, long curtains give a nice dose of warmth and elegance to the overall appearance. What more could a young adult need?

Last week, I visited the Victor Vasarely Museum in Pécs, Hungary. For those of you who are unfamiliar with his work, Vasarely is considered one of the most important figures of the Op art (optical art) movement of the 1950's and 1960's. The museum is small, but well-curated. The ticket is not expensive, and for an extra fee, you are allowed to take photos of the artwork. Plus, the souvenirs are rather cheap. The only problem is that the staff is really bad at English and there is no translation of the art titles. You can find some great works of his son and wife there, as well. I would highly recommend this museum to all you art appreciators who like to feel dizzy in a positive way.

Have I ever mentioned that I'm a big animal lover? Their looks and behaviour fascinates me. Just to be clear, I'm against keeping animals in captivity, but that subject is way too serious and complicated for a lifestyle blog anyhow. The photos are taken on a perfect early autumn afternoon. We even witnessed two species mating - lions and emus. That was quite interesting to observe... Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
P.S. This irregular blogging thing is just a phase, I'll make posts more often again soon.
