Kid’s Bedroom in the Attic – by Depot Rotterdam

This is like my childhood fantasy. When I was a kid, I’d always imagine staying in a tent. Lying on the bed, I had both my legs up to be the “supporting structure” of my blanket, to create a “cave” that made up my tent (if you could imagine). I would hold a torch light in that cave, enjoying the little camping moment =)

So don’t you feel envy of the kid who has this funky bed with a house-like structure? Just throw a blanket over the “roof”, you will get a house/tent instantly! Or just sit back and day dream at the play area below the bed…

This is the latest project I gotten from Depot Rotterdam. (It also reminds me of the small apartment in Singapore that has a house-like structure in the living room!)

Keeping the backdrop of the room all white and simple, the bed with the house-structure that echoes the shape of the attic roof becomes the focal point. The colourful poufs and toys brings out the playfulness of this minimalistic space. Definitely a space that the child can grow-up with.

Family House – Brussels, by Depot Rotterdam

When I came across the space that were designed by the Dutch design studio – Depot Rotterdam, I couldn’t help to feel this instant burst of excitement. It has everything that I dream of having in a Scandinavian home. The colors used in their designs are so much fun! Think of all the possible candy-colored hue, bright colors against crisp white canvas…  Though colorful, it still maintain the airy, clean and bright feel that is typical of the Scandinavian design. This home that I’m going to share today is a family home in Brussels. DepotRotterdam_0

DepotRotterdam_1 Green banquet seating with a pair of oversize bright purple hanging lamps – not what you would normally think of pairing in the color wheel but looking totally pretty in this space. The next time you want to incorporate a banquet seating in your house, forget about the boring-generic-banquet that makes your house looks just like a fast-food restaurant :P
