And when you’re gone; you stay gone, or you be gone.
If you arc lucky enough to own a weekend pied-a-terre, you can give free rein to your interior design fantasies. At least, this was the way one young couple saw it when they bought their apartment in Poznan, a city in western Poland. The pair is from Poznan originally, but for years they have lived and worked in the capital, Warsaw. Their Warsaw-flat — their home during the week — is rather more conventional.
Frequent travel back and forth between the two cities led the couple to the decision

Choose from contemporary and classic designs for a spa-like bathroom zone or dedicated wet room including the latest technological advances

«I wanted this home to be completely different from my previous place, which was contemporary. This time, I wanted my home to look lived-in,» he explains. It was with this rough concept in mind that the bachelor, who is also an

There was so much water that it seeped into the home’s lower level through the bathroom floor and ruined the ceiling of one bedroom; repairs had to be made to the bedroom, and the ceiling of the bedroom had to be replaced.
