Description by designer: The residence owner, who has engaged in the boutique business and possessed of extensive traveling experience, cultivates her taste in aesthetic. With her refined sense in texture and colour, designers selected delicate pigments and materials, and turned these design elements into creative muse.
Composing of blue, green and gold copper colour, the visional motif is contrasting but harmonious. As if Henri Matisse’s famous painting “The Dance II”, with orange colour blending in discordant blue and green pigments, reveals a vibrant art style which called Les Fauves.
The wood grain wall was painted as green as grass, going well with indigo cabinets and gold copper lines. To convert different materials into different rhythm, designers used leather, stone, and punched-plate mesh, and etc. And dividing interior space into open-plan living space and private area with a gold screen, which is shin but limpid as lace curtain, stands in the center. The cozy arrangement for furniture reveals Italian-style décor by an unregulated lay out, being full of implicit, harmonious and contrastive sense in this chiaroscuro space.
With exposed ceiling line pipes to increase loft living style. Designers chose various imitational materials like terrazzo floor, cement mortar paint and veneer to imitate primitive texture from balcony to indoor. In addition, designers used ashlar and grain table to reinforce natural aesthetic, neutralizing artificial Italian décor style.
