What draws many people to big cities is their energy, their diversity, their continuous drive for life. For those of you who have chosen to make your home in a metropolitan area, chances are you live in less square footage than those who live outside city limits. It’s worth the tradeoff for many, being close to things like shops and restaurants and the heart of the city, but living in a smaller apartment has its challenges as well. But less space doesn’t mean a sacrifice of great style.
When you choose the design for a closet, whether it’s for your bedroom, for the dressing room or for your kid’s room, you have to combine two things: looks and functionality. But what about the look? It basically all depends on the design and type you choose for the closet doors. So what options are there?
Classic mirrored doors.
Mirrored doors are amongst the most common types people usually choose for their bedroom or dressing room closets. The mirrors reflect the décor and make the room seem more spacious, plus they’re very useful when you’re choosing your outfit and when you combine accessories.
At the heart of any décor are the same simple elements and colors which, when combined, result in unique and spectacular designs. Black and white and the two most basic and simple colors but this doesn’t mean that they can’t create a stunning and interesting décor. It’s exactly what this apartment in Poland shows us, designed by Kasia Orwat.

But even though the contrasts are strong, pure white and black elements are quite rare here. If you look closer, it’s actually a dark shade of gray which is the main color in this case.
Cobalt blue. It’s that mysteriously energizing shade between indigo and royal blue that is everywhere these days. What is it about this color that makes it work so well in various styles and spaces? Its versatility makes cobalt as at home in luxe, sophisticated spaces as in kids’ rooms; in large whole-room doses or a tiny punch of color on a shelf.
Let’s check out how cobalt blue effectively and stylistically impacts home décor in a variety of ways.
