Timeless Classic of Black and White

This will be a tour of a newly designed home for newlyweds.

We will take a look at this three-bedroom 110 square meter home that takes us on a journey of black, white and color. This home is a great size for a new couple as it will provide some space to grow and learn about each other while still giving this new couple a good deal of space to spread out. We will now take a look at some of the elements that make up the new design of this beautiful home.

One of the largest and most consistent aspects of this home is the flooring. We chose to use vinyl floor planks throughout the entire home. This will make the space look big and gives a more open concept feeling. By using the same flooring in all areas, it gives us the ability to tie a piece of each room together.

On the wall colours for the house, the main colors that we used are black, white and grey. A majority, if not all of the walls were painted a nice bright white to give it a strong contrast.

There are a few walls in the house that we went bold and did an accent wall in the living area in dark grey which added drama and dimension. We chose to use very dark grey on the master bedroom accent wall to allow for a new feeling of comfort while still maintaining a good deal of stark contrast. The bedroom is warm and cosy with the right amount of ambience lighting. For the other two bedrooms, the homeowners chose their favorite colours for each of the room. These were some strong pop of colours like hot pink and nice striking blue which gave the rooms a vibrant and fun look.

The owners like the concept of marble look design for some parts of their house. Thus, in the living area, we decided to add a marble look design on the TV feature wall. This is no ordinary painted wall nor wallpaper. It is a special effect painted wall handcrafted by one of the best mastery in the industry. This special paint effect adds just the right amount of texture and color to really make the living room shine and not be over powering.

Another highlight for the design of this home is the island unit which doubles up as a dining table for the couple. The island top at the kitchen area features a beautiful natural marble look design and is one of the best quality premium Quartz stone available in the market. This acts as one of the centerpieces in the house which will immediately draw your attention to when you enter the kitchen. European designed honeycombed shaped marble looking tiles were used as the backing in between the top and bottom kitchen cabinet. This draws a contrast to the black and white cabinet as well as the white coloured table top. Another way we jazzed up this open concept kitchen design was creating an outline to the cabinets by using black coloured trimmings.

Considering the sheer amount of clothes and handbags that the homeowners have, we decided along with them to transform one of the bedrooms into a walk-in closet. This allow a great deal of space for dressing and clothing for the couple and room for expanding their wardrobe. For greater accessibility into the wardrobe room, a new doorway was created from the master bedroom and separated by a sliding door.

This new home for the new couple is designed according to their lifestyle and needs. It is classic and elegant, modern and minimalist at the same time. The furnishings are kept simple to give a lasting look which you will not get tired of over the years.

A highly modern where the interior design provides comfort and utility alike at Lush Acres Condo

No matter how large a condo unit is, owners would like to enjoy more space. This can be achieved through a smart remodeling of the home, by using furnishing that maximize the use of the space and by decorating the interior in a manner that gives one a sense of an open space. The owners of this condo required a modern but clean remodeling of their home that will not only make their living space practical, but also enjoyable and relaxing.

Entering from the main door, there is a spacious foyer with white washed tiles. A nice glass sliding door separates the foyer from the dining area. Upon entering the living & dining area, you get into a big open space. The use of light colors, like white and soft ivory walls and floor finishes makes the living/dining area spacious and bright.

The kitchen walls have been removed to have an open kitchen concept and to create an even larger space for the dining area. The furniture, in warm woody colors and white, was placed on a wall that has no windows, to create the impression of continuity. In order to provide sufficient space for all the items needed in a kitchen, an island countertop was created, providing the dining table a bit of privacy from the rest of the room and plenty of storage space. In the corner, the designer took advantage of the space to create a tall and generous storage cabinet. The soft lighting from the track lights and L-box gives the dining area a warm and cozy feel.

A long hallway makes the connection between the most used part of the house, which is the dining, kitchen and living area, with the bedrooms and study room. In the study room, the focus was more on functionality and creating a pleasant working space. A wall was dedicated for placing the desk for the computer and other pieces of equipment, which is well lighted with the help of modern light fixtures. On the opposite wall, built in furniture was constructed that integrates within the room, providing both cabinets and open shelves, for a compact space that is more than suitable for a working area. The entire condo was destined to become a living area where functionality entwines simple and clean design lines.

The space was planned in order to minimize any losses due to furnishing, so that the owners can enjoy more of the space their condo is offering. The result is a highly modern condo where the interior design provides comfort and utility alike.
