Stan of the blog Home Rejuvenation and the interior design firm KNQ Associates emailed the other day to share with us one of their latest projects. I am really digging this one. They were asked to create a cool, relaxing space which would showcase the owner’s collection of Asian art objects as well as offer them respite from a busy lifestyle. “Here, we’ve created a home where filtered, ambient light creates an almost ethereal feel. This is further enhanced through a strategic use of soft colors, high gloss finishes and tinted glass. The result is truly minimalist but not cold, with the injection of textured surfaces and bright tones around the house.” It’s modern, timeless and each touch they’ve added is functional and beautiful.
So let’s start with the entrance. Here is a before photo.
“Upon entry into the house, a deep-colored enveloping ceiling structure joining up with a glass partition becomes apparent. This structure connects to a lengthy, full height storage unit which also showcases the owners’ prized possession of horse figurines at the dining area.”
I am totally in love with that shoe cabinet. What a fantastic use of the space!
Now for the living and dining spaces. Here they are before:
“On the advice of a Feng Shui master, the sofa and dining set were to be positioned apart at both ends of the living space. In response, a TV swivel system was created to demarcate the two areas and offers entertainment from every corner of the apartment, including the kitchen. Most of the furniture were brought over from the owners’ previous home on our advice.”
They even worked some magic on the corridor to
the bedrooms. Here it is before and after:
“Two bedrooms were combined to create a larger master bedroom. A sliding wardrobe system was recreated to provided much needed storage space while concealing the existing toilet entry at one section – another Feng Shui requirement.”
