Collect this ideaHAO Design Studio completed the design and development of Recall Casa, a charming industrial home design especially envisioned for a couple and their three cats. The unconventional crib is located in Kaohsiung city, Taiwan and has comes with a total living surface of 155 square meters. The old movie poster, gramophone record and vintage camera make this space looks like a loft café. The entire vintage collection of the owners is carefully put on display, resulting in an original home design with plenty of eye-catching elements.

The designers begun by changing the bright marble floor into concrete flooring, which fully reversed the atmosphere of the space. While one walks into the entryway, the sunlight and plants pass through the hollowed-out iron panel, adding a warm touch to this industrial setting. Behind the iron panel is the cozy and individual space. The bookcase in plywood is the highlight of the living room, and right behind it is the slide case for displaying numerous gramophone records. In the kitchen, the designers created a wine storage space adding up to the industrial character. Next to the dining room, a nook for the three adorable cats was imagined; the mini arched-door is for them to interact with hosts. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by HAO Design Studio]
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
