A house and a home have very different connotations. A house is an edifice waiting to be made into a home, which involves placing feelings and personality into the space. The space in this apartment has been turned into a home by utilizing numerous textures, simple furnishings, and muted hues. In fact, decorating with muted colors can be fun when used in the right combination.
Each area of the living space has its unique theme though the shades and décor are quite similar. For example, the living room is filled with sparkling white with accents of grey and a subdued wooden floor that emits a rose pastel tint. A similar combination flows right into the bedroom. The stark white color, grey accent, and muted wooden floor carries the same easy décor; yet, the functions of the spaces are in complete contrast with each other.
The kitchen is also clothed in white with a no-fuss décor. Practical functionality is the motto with a suspended lamp to add a touch of panache. Moreover, natural light plays an important role in the ambiance of this home. Due to the silent shades that run throughout the dwelling, the sun performs like a beautiful reflection, providing illumination and reflecting the earthly beauty of the space.
The bathroom is a simple affair and continues the same theme of muted shades and practical furnishing. Grey and black colors are used as a backdrop to a simple décor. A wooden shelf for linen and bathroom accessories works well with the small area to create the ideal functional space.
The small corridor is sparsely furnished with exactly what is needed to make this inviting area cozy. What’s more, the oldest trick in the book is used, by adding an elongated mirror on the wall. Mirrors extend space especially when they are placed in corridors or small areas. According to Feng Shui, mirrors are not only used to increase the space to produce more light, mirrors are also the ideal representation of the Feng Shui water element as they release an energy of tranquility and restorative properties.
In addition, a finely textured neutral colored accent rug gives the corridor area a quaint feeling and creates a homelike atmosphere. It’s a great way to add that “welcoming” ambiance when the corridor is the gateway to all the rooms in the house.
Producing a common cohesion with muted shades extend throughout the rooms, working meticulously with the floor plan and keeping the space balanced, this apartment manages to merge charm, style, and quiet visual aspects to create a livable environment that is individual and practical.
