The project is a newly-built residence covering 165 square meters. The homeowners are a nuclear family of a young couple and their young children.
The design of the residence is inspired by the hostess’s love of the milk-tea color.It features simple lines and a warm, pleasant color scheme, blending the Japanese simple and Nordic styles. The statement wall is characterized by a soft, intellectual light gray. When paired with light-veined cabinetry and flooring, it not only highlights visual quality and moderate aesthetics, but leaves proper blank without looking empty.
A large amount of toxin-free green material is used indoors, emphasizing the idea of sustainable housing.
The organization of storage is another highlight in the entire residence. Cabinetry of diverse functions is integrated into different spaces to meet the needs of this family of four for storage and neatness. As the homeowners do not have specific preferences, the designer provides professional guidance and selection, and by simplifying the design and using healthy, safe green material, a laid-back vibe in the home is created. Thus this pleasant, warm space defines what a sweet home should be like.
