More and more homes incorporate stylish details typically reserved for high-end hotels giving the space a more cosmopolitan edge.
The aim of this project was to design a scheme that truly makes a statement. The remodeling of this small student flat shows us that limited spaces don’t always appear overfilled and that we can achieve a spacious look without using white excessively.
This open plan space works so well because it has clearly defined zones for various tasks. The room divides without affecting the flow of light. A more private area has been considered: the dressing and sleeping space which can be open or closed when receiving guests.
Furniture for the small space is all about proportion. Heavy, weighty pieces that eat up too much of the usable space have been avoided.
To create the illusion of more space, we had to initiate a sense of openness and movement. Furniture that is streamlined allows light and air to flow not just over but also under and around it, so that it appears to float in space.
The furniture colour choice is monochromatic and functional. Tall natural wood shelves and a plain grey sofa define the living room area.
We used a black kitchen island and low pendants as an unobtrusive and practical way to create zoning.A visible wood finish floor complements the industrial, rough feel.
Wall colour choice was neutral, plain grey ready for the copper covering“explosion”. This particular metal choice is definitely the wow factor without the strong hue becoming overwhelming within the limited proportions.
The cheerful accent is the main attraction, the eye is drawn to it and makes the room appear larger.
We love the tarnished texture created by the subtle patina of the metallic surface, adding depth and richness.
