This project is a renovation on a 30-year-old apartment, and also a gift from a father to his newly wedded daughter. The large scale of white in the space makes it light and clean, with dark wooden furniture adding in some weight in the place and muted color décors, hexagonal tiles, and some potted plants as some soft touches. This fresh, Nordic style space is going to be home for the newlyweds’ elegant newly married life, and many years to come.
Walking into the door, the entrance is decorated with hexagonal tiles, creating a nook for comers to ease their minds from the busy lives outside and a perfect transition into the light space. The floating cabinet has unexpected storage space. The soft gray-brown color palette continues and is applied on the floors of the public areas. A lower back wall design allows the natural light to shine in and light up the space.
The dining table is between the living room and the kitchen. With metal pendant lamps hanging on the beam above and metal chair legs below, the dash of shine is the highlight of the space. The kitchen floor is covered with hexagonal tiles, echoing the entrance and also being more stain resistant. The mini bar on the right is a great spot for a morning coffee or tea break.
The white continues in the master bedroom. A hint of muted color clash is added in, and the room is styled with some textiles in rich color and some simple line drawings. The partition of the study is made of glass, which allow the study to share the sunlight with the bedroom, and also keeps the room visually open. The door of the closet is a glass sliding door with some hardware, sharing the same elements in the bedroom. The space is well lit due to its connection with the balcony and has a lot of space to store clothes.
With the white base, the dark brown floors and a dash of muted colors, the designer builds a simple yet elegant Scandinavian style home for the newlyweds.
