After transforming a house into four flats, the builder called on my services for the final touch: furnishing and decorating the flats before they were put up for rent.
The brief was clear: the flats had to be functional and pleasant to live in, but the budget for each was limited and everything had to be ready in one month.
When I visited the four flats that were still under construction, I wanted to create 4 totally different atmospheres. I couldn’t see myself making four similar flats, without soul. I thought about the social aspect of living in the same house and I didn’t want the inhabitants of different flats to go to each other’s apartments thinking that they were still at home if the decoration had been exactly the same.
This ground floor flat is the least bright of all.
The kitchen is in dark grey tones, the same colour used for the sofa and a round rug.
The steel blue colour (blue-grey) was used for the decoration elements.
To warm it up, I added soft and natural materials (light wood elements, bamboo lampshade, throw…) and references to the animal world (wall decor and sheepskin cushion).
