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.
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.
