Taipei 內湖 Apartment by Interior Ink 墨線設計

Nei Hu 01

I have posted a project by Interior Ink before, and this is another amazing space that was designed by them.

The occupant of this Taipei apartment is a busy career woman, and her wish is to come home to a relaxing and personal space after frequent business trips.

And I really like what the designer has done to the apartment. There is daring use of colours and textures within the tight space, and thoughtful creation of extra storage  for this 2-bedroom apartment.

Living Room

A suspended shoes cabinet was built in to demarcate a foyer for the entrance. Since the cabinet is suspended, it doesn’t make the space look too cramped.

The floor of the living room was slightly elevated, and covered in wood flooring to add warmth to the space.

Adjacent to the suspended shoes cabinet, is the TV feature wall that uses white asymmetrical shelves against a light sea green wall. A very refreshing colour scheme.

Oh and I really like the weathered leather chair and the rustic wood and steel coffee table here!

Behind the sofa, the custom bookshelves were deliberately left back-less. Peeking through the shelves, is a wall dressed in bright lime yellow that gives such a pleasant surprise! The bright colour doesn’t look odd and out of place at all, and it certainly creates more visual depth.

T House by Interior Ink 墨線設計

I like to look at the apartments in Hong Kong and Taiwan because I feel that these projects are very relatable to our apartments in Singapore, be it the Asian lifestyle or the similarity in terms of the (small-ish) size and layout of the apartments.

The similarities also mean that the ideas inspired from such projects, are more realistic and practical that you and I can utilize when planning the design of our homes.

The following project is a recently completed apartment from Taiwan based interior design firm – Interior Ink 墨線設計

The living room area has very good natural light. So the design is kept simple to keep it bright and airy. Like how the mid-century looking chair and the wall hanging lamp adds interest to the space.

At the dining area, a full height cabinet provides ample storage and display corner for the home owners. Since the living-dining area is not really a high space, the dining table is cantilevered and integrated with the cabinet for a more streamline look. A set of tolix chairs in different colours complete the look.
