NATIONAL Style & Draw Interior Design Contest 2nd Place

Krisztina’s Unique Experience

The task at this year’s Style & Draw interior design competition was for designers to plan their very own homes. Krisztina Szilagyine took up the challenge with an ARCHLine.XP-made plan, which resulted in securing 2nd place, and an additional special award from CADLine. Let’s hear it from her, how the process went down.

I think it’s quite a challenge for any designer to design their own homes, because the end result will reflect their own personality, style, values and professional skills. I dreamed up a home for our family, the space to which it’s a pleasure to return, and which can be a suitable meeting ground for friends and family alike.
We placed suspended ceilings everywhere, so there are no pelmets – the curtains are hanging from a hidden, double rail mechanism. Also, the suspended ceiling made it possible to have recessed spotlights, which emphasize the contemporary architectural forms and shapes nicely.
My family has three members, our daughter has already grown up, she is not living with us anymore, but gladly visits us frequently, and this was taken into consideration. The net area is 94,35 M2 with an additional 21,78 M2 garage and a unique 12,32 M2 conservatory. I started working by removing the partition walls of the original floor plan, and creating a whole new room layout. The living room doors, opening to the terrace, were turned into windows, and the terrace door was resized, and a new entrance door was also chosen.

Entering the anteroom, we get to a spacious location. Facing the entrance is a built in, bespoke wardrobe with built-in seating, with storage for shoes and overcoats. Left from the entrance is a wall with a mirror and two smaller stools.

Down the hall, the first room on the left is the guestroom. We also have bespoke built-in wardrobes here, a table and a Mabiladalin Monte Carlo sofa, which can be converted into a bed easily.

The second door to the left is the master bedroom. I placed an Italian Natuzzi Fenice bed here, with bespoke nightstands, and with stools by the end of the bed. To the other wall I have mounted a bespoke wardrobe, with a makeup table with a large mirror.

Facing the hall is the bathroom, with custom-made cabinetry, made of Fenix Nanotech materials. Next to the bathroom, as a separate unit, we have the toilet, with recessed shelves, a small washbasin, and again, a large mirror.

The living room is separated from the anteroom by a beam/column structure, in which I built in two cupboards with drawers, one of which faces the anteroom, the other faces the living room.
The living room, eatery and kitchen are the hearts and souls of the house. I laid heavy emphasis on the unique tiling, hence the Sicis Vetrite glass covering on the wall, which provides the living room with a sufficient air of elegance. I really love Italian furniture, the couch, armchair, stool, coffee table and the furniture of the eatery are all Minotti pieces. The wall hosting the gadgetry is made of custom-made units. The bioethanol fireplace gives a unique atmosphere, its chimney is hidden by a special covering – the unity between color and texture also appears on the other wall.
When designing the kitchen, I took into consideration the way we meet with friends, and the number of guests we’d receive. I equipped the kitchen with Miele appliances. The textures are from the Fenix Nanotech range. I like the mood the unique lamps make, that’s why I put a custom Eglo Lux Polasso group of lamps over the kitchen island.
The terrace is made of a retractable Alukov conservatory system, so that even a larger group of people would find it comfortable – whether it’s summer or wintertime.
All in all, I think I managed to create an elegant home, which fulfills all of my family’s needs.

About Krisztina’s Work

For over a decade and a half, I have been confirmed to have a demand for quality home furnishing. Completed with teacher and presidential praise, the Archline design exams, ongoing professional training, and application recognition guarantee my clients the quality of home furnishings they need.

I became interested in furniture in 2000 after my husband and I opened our first joint Furniture and Furnishings store. During my furniture trade for more than one and a half decades, I became more and more fond of artwork, design and all of my work.

For the past 17 years, I have witnessed the need for quality home decor. In 2017, I graduated from the School of Interior Design with praise from my teacher and president, and passed the Basic Archline Design Exam, which was complemented by advanced design knowledge. I am constantly educating myself, I am open to new trends, novelties, exhibitions, and attend professional presentations. All this is very important to me, because this way I can meet all the needs of the customers.

I am a perfectionist, I like high quality furniture, I like to design for the long term!
