Clifton Leung Design Workshop sent us photos and information regarding a practical apartment design the studio completed in Wampoa Garden, Hong Kong, China. The warm lighting and creamy surroundings highlight the overall atmosphere of this small house: simple and peaceful. No colors other than white and beige are chosen for the color scheme to replicate the subtle warm glow in the house, including track lights that are hidden underneath the floating cabinets that evoke a spacious and dreamy ambience. With a design brief to minimize clutter and maximize space, the residence was designed in a minimalist style with clean lines.
The two major zones of the residence, the dining/ living zone and bedroom zone are well defined by the use of different flooring – sand stone tiles flooring and wood flooring respectively. The two zones are separated by a sliding door, which allows tranquil relaxation at the bedroom zone and enjoyable entertainment at the living/ dining zone at the same time. The owners requested for build in furniture with maximum storage and you can see plenty of ingenious solution throughout the apartment.[Information provided via e-mail by Clifton Leung Design Workshop ]
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care, perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue standout even while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition, get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.
