Located in a small village in Opatija, Croatia, this artist residence is a vintage home that has been transformed into an elegant atelier. Owned by artist and musician Vedran Ruzic, the home boasts a rustic, stone shell and an interior that is filled with eclectic furniture pieces and Ruzic's eccentric collection of objects and artwork.

In addition to being a painter and a student at Rijeka's Academy of Applied Arts, Vedran Ruzic is also a dedicated jazz and pop musician who has played with a myriad of Croatian bands. This expressive artist residence blends together contemporary and rustic details and is fully reflective of its owner's colorful personality.

While the home's triangular roof and stone finishes look to the past, its carefree display of art and mismatched furniture is evocative of its owner's youthful spirit.
