COMING HOME TO A SCANDINAVIAN VACATION WITH BREEZY INTERIORS & OCEAN BLUE
With the concept of “a breath of fresh air” in mind, the design of this Compassvale flat opens up spaces while a subtle Nordic flavour transforms the home into an escapade to a Scandinavian resort for the whole family. The central colour theme of brown and blue is an allusion to a sandy beach and the cool waters of the ocean.
To create an uplifting sense of openness, several partition walls within the flat unit was taken down and a gentle palette of pastel hues chosen to give the living spaces a light and bright ambience that feels welcoming.
In the living room, a massive wall mounted cabinet “floats” above the ground, creatively forming a natural display space for shoes, which makes it convenient for the homeowners to decide on a pair that matches their outfits as well as for easy retrieval. The cabinet also conceals unsightly structural beams and pipes while providing a vast volume of flexible storage space with a configurable shelving system.
Drifting into the bedroom, the sense of space continues with a frills-free approach to spatial design and furnishing. A creative feature in the room is a semi walk-in wardrobe created with floor-to-ceiling closets that are as much a part of the room’s design as they are functional.
Another unique feature of the Compassvale interior is the seamless integration of the kitchen with the living room where the transition between the two spaces is achieved through smart design and a rethink on how to make walls disappear.
