I love the creativity and open plan of this apartment in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. Unlike the usual parent-child space planning, which seeks to fill every place to meet the needs of all family members, here the designer chose the “children’s perspective” as the theme, supplemented by the needs of adults. The designer seeks to make a blank canvas from the spacious multi-layer space, and add a little bit of colorful pigment that is easy to mix to match to every room so that the little master can over time gradually fill in the colors and complete the mosaic with his own personality. In order to allow the children who have been at home for a long time more freedom, we decided to abandon the original house structure and adopt an open layout. This allows every corner of the room to play a different mission. It is a self-contained living space that can be controlled by the child independently. Designed by HAO Design.
With its neutral colour palette, mid century classic furniture pieces and considered artworks this New York apartment by Arthur Casas Studio is the epitome of restrained chic, masculine without being clichéd, a luxurious bolthole in the big city.
Someone once left a comment on a post about a Paris apartment: If life were at all fair, we would all have an apartment in Paris at some point in our lives. That post happened to be designed by Italian designer Fabrizio Casiraghi. This one is one of his latest projects in the 7th arrondissement, with architectural details that will blow you away. And I go back to that comment, with the belief that nothing could be more truthful. How is it fair that something this stunning even exists? With classical details and a vibrant yet not overdone and very unique colour palette, this is a dream. (Photos: Cerruti Draime)
Hmmm? What colour is best for a dining room? Why green of course! The Eastern Terrace, a multi-zone garden for a Melbourne apartment by Lisa Ellis Gardens.
