Home Guide conceptualised a condo style inspired by Scandinavian minimalism for this Leedon Residence home interior design project. The young couple living there shared their love for art and wine. To let their favourite collectibles shine, we worked on a modern and very streamlined design concept that contributed to the complete overhauling of the living space.
The client’s input on colour and the information provided about the art that they owned served as an additional source of inspiration for the modernisation of the living space. Home Guide produced a coherent transformation in line with the trendy views of the property owners.
The clean minimalist concept becomes evident the moment the apartment is entered. White and bronze elements work together to create a clean space that also exhibits a bit of warmth and opulence. The entryway opens into the living area, demonstrating the initial notes of a cohesive idea that ties all of the interior design decisions together.
TAK laminate finishing feature wall and console were used to give the living area some warmth. We also introduced grey tones and concrete to provide some contrast and visual appeal. Polished, glossy finishes, brass lines and smooth display shelves furthered the minimalist, functional concept.
We accepted the challenge of working with some of the owner’s favourite furniture pieces. The Home Guide team offered guidance on dimensions, composition and colour matching to have a clear running theme throughout the execution.
As the dining area and the living area share the same space, we extended the same interior design concept to both.
The diagonal elements present in the living room were continued through a slanted cabinet concept. We also stuck to low cabinets, maximising the space and the amount of light in the dining area. TAK laminate finishing feature wall and low cabinets were selected once again to make the visuals reminiscent of those in the living room.
The existing horne finish marble was polished to a glossy finish. Bronze and gold MELT series pendant lights and leather chairs were introduced as the most prominent statement pieces in the dining area.
White, grey and brass accents dominate the master bedroom in this artistic home. To visually elongate the space, we selected a full-length bed headboard with vertical brass lines. A curve in the headboard corner was used to add a discrete dressing area. A suspended kidney bean dressing table gave a bit of functionality without reducing the available space. The major transformation came in the form of a crystal top spray-painted bedside table and a re-varnished wooden floor to get rid of the previous, unappealing yellowish tint.
The second bedroom was easily transformed into a multi-purpose space – a room for relaxation, enhanced with a comfortable and practical study corner. Once again, the floor was re-varnished to get rid of the yellow hues and introduce a more sophisticated walnut colour. A storage bedhead and a platform bed were added to make the most of the available space. We focused on a couple of additional, practical elements like a slated divider, open shelves and a magnetic glass writing board.
A blue tone concept was chosen for the guest bedroom, differentiating it from the other two bedrooms in the apartment. Once again, the bronze and brass elements were carried through the trimmings and the mirror elements. The addition of a 3D graphic wallpaper gave the bedroom a bold, artistic feel that’s representative of the lovely and youthful family living in the flat.
As a three-bedroom condominium at the Lincoln in Surrey Road, this apartment had potential, but it was dark with awkward spaces and had no personality. The semi-retired owners wanted the space transformed to suit their needs and style, so…
