It's the same old story that we just can't get enough of: an enterprising, design-minded individual finds a dilapidated structure and puts in the work to make it completely new and marvelous again. In this case, it's interior designer Jacek Kolasiński, who, upon discovering a badly deteriorated farmhouse in his dream neighborhood in Szczecin, Poland, embarked on a thorough renovation, transforming it into a polished and romantic family home.
According to Dwell, Kolasiński tore down light-blocking walls and ceilings, salvaged original columns and brickwork, and doused the whole place in white paint on the inside and out. Ultimately, the made-over 1,500-square-foot home is bright without looking too clinical—and it certainly helps that Kolasiński has a fine collection of midcentury Danish chairs and loungers from designers like Ib Kofod-Larsen and Hans J. Wegner.
