London-based Polish design student Mirka McNeill's renovation of a Parisian-style Warsaw apartment was a highlight of the March issue of Living Etc. I visited Mirka at her London house yesterday, where she was in the midst of renovating the Victorian house she shares with her husband and two Bengal cats in Barnes.
When they renovated the kitchen, they lost light in the windowless TV room, which is sandwiched between the raised living room and kitchen. So she decided to run with it "and go magic," Mirka says, with a Moroccan light that casts bewitching shadows.
You can see some of Mirka's work here.
