A youthful space with quirky accents, this flat at Žižkov is situated within in a 1930s house. Designed by DDAANN architects for a married couple, the home was envisioned as a connected space that would be bathed in natural light. Herringbone wood flooring runs throughout the entire space, matching the edging detail of built-in furniture that is made from bleached birch plywood. White foil coating covers the bespoke furniture, matching the plain white walls that are seen in every direction in every room. Boldly colourful solo furniture pieces and bright unusual accessories in shades of orange, blue, red and yellow pepper the interior, giving the apartment decor an easy breezy fun factor.

Copper pendant lights hang in a central line down the room, and match with the orange accent colour of the built in seating. Another small black swing arm wall lamp is set within the seat design so that it may also be used as a cosy reading nook. Whilst the white bookshelves are not typically used to house kitchen supplies, the matching furniture style has them appear as part of the neighbouring white kitchen. | 9 |.
Two black dining chairs match the black swing arm wall lamps, seated on the opposite side of a simple wooden dining table. A watering can sits on display on a low shelf, close to hand for giving the house plants a quick drink. | 7 |.
The white one-wall kitchen is decorated with pale blue wall tiles, which allow the tangerine book nook to remain the focal point of the kitchen diner space. Two black swing arm wall lamps are mounted over the white kitchen counter as repositionable task lighting. | 6 |.
A neat settee, in highly saturated turquoise upholstery, dominates the sitting room. A blue decorative vase sits on a contrasting yellow serving tray, a retro color theme that flatters the mid century modern coffee table style. Contemporary art prints above the sofa and the black console unit draw all the hues of the living space together. | 2 |.
A free-flowing layout was achieved between the main living spaces by incorporating a huge bookcase. The sprawling shelving unit visually divides the open plan kitchen and lounge areas whilst still allowing sunlight to filter through its upper volumes. The ‘doorway’ to the lounge from the kitchen is a wide entrance with no closing doors. | 1 |.
