Julia Kuczyńska, the most popular blogger in Poland, has a unique sense of style. This is evident not only in her fashion stylizations, but also in the interiors where she lives every day. Her house in Konstancin delights with spacious interiors flooded with natural light, great design as well as harmony and consistency, typical only for the best projects. The solutions used in the 200 m2 villa, designed by Aleksandra Karpińska from the On / Off Architekci studio, neatly combine functionality and minimalist style. How does the most famous influencer in Poland live?
Maffashion has many professional undertakings on a daily basis, so whenever he finds a moment to regenerate, he spends time at his home. The star’s villa is dominated by minimalism and loft style. The base is concrete gray, steel, dark brown and graphite, which perfectly display designer accessories. The huge, glazed space of the ground floor, with plenty of natural light, and modern interiors with original stairs leading to the first floor are impressive. The rooms interpenetrate in an open plan, so there is no place for small and inconspicuous furniture. Everything fits the scale and keeps the proportions.
The central element of the room is the Tufta Time segment sofa designed by Patricia Urquioli for B&B Italia. The rest room is full of eye-catching accessories. One of them is the iconic Big Mama B&B Italia armchair, which was featured in the movie “Diamonds Are Forever” starring Sean Connery as James Bond. The raw interior of the living room combined with the kitchen is warmed by a wooden floor, and the unique style is created by the architects’ favorite materials – Dekton quartz sinters from the Spanish company Cosentino, which, in combination with a wooden floor and light furniture, create an extraordinary space, inviting you to relax.

The potential of noble simplicity
In the house design, the presence of finishing materials, colors and the role of each element have been carefully considered. The focal point of the room was a kitchen island covered with a damage-resistant Dekton Keranium sinter by Cosentino. This material is characterized by high resistance to discoloration, scratching and abrasion as well as high and low temperature, beautifully harmonizing with the sun entering the kitchen interior. The Keranium shade, one of the many available in the Cosentino portfolio, has already been used by many of the best architects in the world. Earlier, he used it, among others Daniel Libeskind in the design of an almost 6-meter sculpture presented at the Architecture Biennale in Venice. In the On / Off Architekci project, Dekton created depth on the wall between the upper and lower kitchen furniture, optically enlarging it. A clear division of the open space between the living room and the kitchen is also introduced by the over 2.5 meter high island from Dekton. The thinner version of the Keranium sinter (8mm) was used for the cladding of the cabinets in the living room and the vertical cladding of the island cabinets from the living room side (which is why the island has a uniform color.) Dekton is used for kitchen and bathroom countertops, sinks, window sills, fireplaces, stairs, wall coverings, floors , facades, hence Aleksandra Karpińska’s idea to use it in Maffashion’s home, also as cladding for cabinets in the living room and walls in the bedroom. The kitchen and furniture fittings in the house are the work of the ernestrust.
“I like the living room with large windows and open kitchen the most. This is where our whole life happens and this is where we spend most of our time. I love such slightly minimalist interiors with a bit of austerity. Warm wood, quartz sinter, steel and stone contrasting with the concrete ceiling. All this in its simplicity is very timeless and does not feel overwhelmed. Currently, it is also a great background for the ubiquitous lying, colorful children’s toys, cars, my son’s blocks. of which the buildings in the kitchen and living room are made, hammered concrete on the wall and greenery outside the windows that gives respite ” – Julia talks about her house.
Subtle beige in the bedroom
In order not to disturb the open space, private rooms, such as the bedroom and the room of Julia’s son – Bastian, are located on the first floor. The interior of the bedroom is also very minimalist and raw. It is dominated by beige, gray and brown. The entire wall is occupied by a partially glazed, built-in ernestrust wardrobe. The only pieces of furniture are an upholstered bed and stone side tables. The attention is drawn to warming accessories, a fluffy carpet, a boho-style bedspread and an original wall made of a large-format Dekton Nilium sinter plate by Cosentino.
In Julia’s house, on an area of 200 m2, we go through various, but very consistent zones. Each of them, seemingly calm and uniform, attracts the eye with individual elements integrated into the whole. Light forms contrast nicely with straight lines. The textures interpenetrate each other, and the loft atmosphere merges with modernity. There is no point in looking for clichéd fashion stylizations and banal interior ideas at Maffashion. Her choices are always distinguished by originality and timeless style. She skillfully juxtaposes the world of contemporary fashion and modern design, combining them with her naturalness and distance to the changes that await her in her private life.
