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.
Thanks to its large bow window and white walls, the living room of this ground floor flat is very bright.
I chose white storage units that disappear against the white walls. The kitchen being dark grey I also used a touch of this colour in the main room with a sofa of the same hue.
To enhance the whole, while keeping the brightness of the room, I selected bright yellow or golden decorative elements. This vibrant colour goes all the way to the kitchen with its yellow wall clock and its yellow and grey patterned food storage jars.
A glass console desk and its transparent chair do not block the light coming in through the bow window and their transparency makes their presence more discreet in this relatively compact space.
