We received photos of a recently completed project envisioned by Max Lam, the Chief Designer of Moderne. This diverse 1020 square foot flat is part of the New Town Plaza, a shopping mall in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. According to the architects, the entire design concept is modern and minimalist. The main colors employed were white and gray, yellow being used as a harmonizing color. A black glass wall goes from the entrance to the living room, uniting the space. The living area is connected to the kitchen, yet the two zones are visually separated. A large sofa provides plenty of seating space for having guests over. The small, highly modern dining table for four (in black and white) is complemented by a wallpaper having the same color palette. The bar table adds practicability and marks the way to the all-equipped kitchen. See any further details you enjoy regarding the design of this Hong Kong apartment?
Adding green to the bedroom is easy if you already have a muted color scheme going in the room. It is a color that works beautifully with the likes of white, gray and even brown. While the yellowy-greens add warmth to the bedroom, the blue-tinged variants bring a touch of coolness along with a vibrant ambiance. Here is a pick of 25 gorgeous bedrooms that incorporate green in a gorgeous fashion.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
