Home Interior Design
A very attractive and silent sea view from all the windows in this apartment.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
‘The sea after the storm works better to bring you peacefulness than simply a calm water’ Alain, the designer said. Maybe that is the perfect line that explain our expectation on our homes. In a pace as busy as Hong Kong, A comfort and cozy home help us to put aside a day-long hard work, give us a place to share every moments with my loved ones and the coming challenges. This is the main reason why the owner choose this flat in Bellagio with a fascinating sea view. The couple thinks the sea is a source of inspiration and also a media that works well to balance his busy works and private life. The sofa is placed facing the bay window so the owner can sit there any time with his wife for a moment of calm. They also love to sit at the cushion-coated windowsill for a few lines of a book. The design focus on linings and ratio and improve the space management through different materials and colors.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A mirror is placed on the wall right next to the entrance to increase the natural daylight in the dining area. It also worked as another window to the stunning sea view. Same type of white wooden wall covering is opted to connect the entrance and the corridor. A dark brown wall covering is used in contrast of the white on the other side of the wall next to the sofa. The doors of the bathroom and the guest room are hidden and connect the living area into one single area. The designer removed the walls used to separate the kitchen and the maid’s room from the living room for an open kitchen and larger space to greet family and friends. He picks a grey tone wood flooring and a chestnut brown wood table to balance the simplicity brought by the white-colored furniture and create a more warming atmosphere of the whole unit.
Similar tone but different materials increase the variety of room. Microfiber suede used on part of the wall in the bedroom adds warmth to the bedroom. The designer does not miss the little space which is another spot where the couple can relax and enjoy the uninterrupted view of the sea. Go through the glass sliding door right next to the bedroom and enter the balcony, sit down and enjoy a get away from the busy world.
