Nina helped a family turn their vacation property kitchen from a claustrophobic and kitschy space into a fun and open gathering space. By removing the divider, adding some unexpected color along with classic elements, she breathed new life into the room.

From Nina: The owners, a young family, wanted a vacation apartment (that they could also rent out), located in a town adjacent to a European ski area. After searching for the perfect property they decided to buy a two bedroom apartment with a typical 1980s vibe. They enlisted help from a local architect Nina Stajner, who specializes in creative renovations. The end result is an apartment that boasts a happy, positive energy and reflects its owners youthful energy.

The light grey base color palette is spiced up by colorful accents throughout the apartment. The wood vinyl flooring and custom wooden furniture add that much needed warmth to the space while vintage accessories give it some nostalgic feel. The furniture is a collage of IKEA, designer and upcycled vintage pieces. All of the artwork was provided by the owner’s mother, making the space even more personal.
