Clifton Leung Design Workshop sent us photos and information regarding a practical apartment design the studio completed in Wampoa Garden, Hong Kong, China. The warm lighting and creamy surroundings highlight the overall atmosphere of this small house: simple and peaceful. No colors other than white and beige are chosen for the color scheme to replicate the subtle warm glow in the house, including track lights that are hidden underneath the floating cabinets that evoke a spacious and dreamy ambience. With a design brief to minimize clutter and maximize space, the residence was designed in a minimalist style with clean lines.
The two major zones of the residence, the dining/ living zone and bedroom zone are well defined by the use of different flooring – sand stone tiles flooring and wood flooring respectively. The two zones are separated by a sliding door, which allows tranquil relaxation at the bedroom zone and enjoyable entertainment at the living/ dining zone at the same time. The owners requested for build in furniture with maximum storage and you can see plenty of ingenious solution throughout the apartment.[Information provided via e-mail by Clifton Leung Design Workshop ]
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
