A Glimpse Inside an Interior Designer’s home | J+D Design Lab 齊舍設計事務所

London book JD Design labI bought this book 住進英倫風的家 ENGLISH Style from Kinokuniya book store here last year.

The book is all about a curated list of projects done by Taiwan interior design firm 齊舍設計事務所 J+D Design Lab. (my previous post on their design studio can be found here) You will see how English charm, American country, or French-inspired theme interpreted and realised by the designers in the context of Asian homes. Design tips and information of the material used (e.g. paint code, tiles) were shared in the book too. So if you can read Chinese, I do highly recommend you to get hold of this book! Plenty of beautiful images to drool over.

And for me, the first thing that drew me to the book is this apartment with impeccable style, which is the own sweet home of the designer duo (Judy and Dome) behind J+D Design Lab.

How much charm can you pack into a 80sqm apartment? Just scroll through the images here, be in awed and enjoy <3.

A 4-room HDB flat with French-inspired Theme by Green And Lush

Ushering in the new year, I guess it is the best time to update the look of my site. I’m trying out this new theme Sela from WordPress, and I already liked how clean and fresh it looks. <3 Hope this serves great start for year 2015!

Today, let’s look at 2 HDB projects from Green And Lush. Both channel a very different theme but equally inspiring for everyone who is looking for ideas for their homes.

The first project is a 4-room HDB flat with a French-inspired theme. In my opinion, the subtly quite and elegant French look is not the easiest theme to pull off. Some constraint is definitely  needed without overdoing it and making it look tacky. So I always adore homes with French flair done right, like this project. Love the lavender upholstery of the dining chairs and the soft dusty pink of the master bedroom. Romantic look is at best when it is effortless.

Lee’s Design | Designer’s Flea Market Chic Home in Taipei

This cozy little apartment belongs to the designer of Lee’s Design 文儀設計, which I have shared about their project last week on the Muji-style home.

I really like the decor of this space, it has that Japanese zakka feel, with some french flea market chic influence. It looks so cozy and romantic, just a perfect place for the lady.

Taipei Office of J+D Design Lab 齊舍設計事務所

Yes, this is the office of an interior design studio in Taipei.

J+D Design Lab is another Taiwan-based interior design studio that I really like. I’ll share one of their projects another day.

In this post, I’m excited to show you their office space instead.

Stepping into the office of J+D Design Lab is like entering a salon in France. Besides the architectural details like crown mouldings and French door, I’m particularly fascinated by the use of colours in each room.

Once entered the studio, there are two olive green chairs in the meeting area and a salmon-coloured accent wall greeting the guests. A dark charcoal grey was used for the office, giving it a sophisticated vibe. Then there is a splash of orange in pantry.

Last but not least, my favourite – is the super pretty toilet painted in turquoise blue. Such a vivid colour, and it is looking really good.
