The cozy Grand Oak by Ministry of Interior Affairs is an incredible eclectic and eco-friendly home with quirky, child-like charm mixed with serene, adult spaces.
Welcome to the incredible Grand Oak house designed by Ministry of Interior Affairs.
The interior design studio was founded by Magdalena Konopka and Marcin Konopka, and is based in the Tri-City area of Poland, which encompasses Gdansk, Sopot, and Gdynia.
Most of their projects are around the area, although they also take clients from other regions in Poland and even abroad.
Ministry of Interior Affairs aims to create simple, functional spaces that have a single purpose: eating, living, working, and leisure all have their place.
Their designs are contemporary, but always include a signature touch of elegance and traditionalism.
However, their designs do not neglect the future, and touches of modernity can also be seen throughout their designs.
Music and art are common themes in designs by Ministry of Interior Affairs, as they draw inspiration from the emotions they invoke.
This home, the Grand Oak, encompasses all these design themes while maintaining functionality and cohesiveness.
Nature is a common feature, with unique pieces including photo walls and light fixtures. The children’s rooms are markedly different from the adult areas, which are more airy and in natural colors.
We hope you’ll enjoy your sneak peek at this house!

Upon entering the home, we are greeted on the left by the spacious living room area, which includes a corner fireplace shared and a small nook behind the open bookshelves.
Across from the living room is the dining room, which has a flair for the modern and has lovely light wood throughout.
Just on the other side of the dining room is the kitchen island, which includes and eat-in bar. The galley kitchen is surprisingly spacious, owing much to the natural light let in by the windows.
On the left, a view into the galley kitchen, highlighting the mixture of glossy black, white, and natural wood elements. On the right, a small seating area across from the kitchen and next to the fireplace.
Just down the hall from the kitchen is the workspace, featuring a traditional style button-tufted sofa, and small gaming area, and a desk beside the window.
The bench area has its own lighting, which is perfect for reading a book.
The first of the children’s rooms is located next to the office, and has an incredible coloring book wallpapered wall. Bold colors, a drum kit, and exercise equipment ensure that the child has plenty of ways to express himself.
A closer look at the coloring book wallpaper and the room’s quirky hanging person light fixture.
The other child’s room has the same light fixture and color scheme, but is slowly transitioning to a more adult-like appearance. A desk is on one side of the room.
The children share a bathroom with an incredible photo wall and glass shower. Wood-look tile continues the natural look of the room.
Storage is hidden on one side of the bathroom. When the doors are closed, it looks like an extension of the mural. When opened, it reveals all the bathroom storage you could want.
Mirrors are used in the bathroom to help create a spacious feel. This quirky reindeer light brings a bit of the childish wonder from the bedrooms into this more grown-up bathroom.
The master bedroom is filled with subtle color, with a rich raspberry bedspread as an accent.
The wall treatment behind the bed continues into the master bedroom, which has a lovely soaking tub in place of the shower.
