Timeless achromatic colors and healing earth tone applied here make it visually steady and comfortable. What’s more, there is ingenuity found on the selective wall panels, which are with different stylish patterns yet still in the same tone, as if they are landscape paintings with splashes of ink. In addition, the floor-to-ceiling windows introduce a great amount of natural light. With some special choices of lamps on the sides, walls and ceiling, the indirect lighting brings warmth to the space, not creating sharpness. The open public space, formed by the living room and kitchen, is rather spacious. On one side of the kitchen, the black stone panel functions as a mirror to open up the spatial perception. The private spaces’ style and use of materials correspond to the ones in the public areas. Last but not least, in order to reduce the harm that interior design might cause to the environment, most products here are eco-friendly and VOCs-free.
