The homeowner in this case is a former interior designer, sort of a peer of ours. Currently, she is a full time wife. Because her children are still young, she spends most of the day at home. This also gives the homeowner more time to develop her hobbies, reading, crafts, Peking Opera, and painting.
For this renovation, the homeowner paid extra attention to the fit of the home and the people. She wanted her home to be “not bound by style, but with enough space to develop her hobbies. The space is refined in its simplicity, transparent and warm. People can feel more at ease in the space.”
We completely respect the wishes of the homeowner. The space is not overly decorated, and the atmosphere is created by the texture of the decoration material itself. We focus on balancing the interaction between spaces and between spaces and people. We started from the details to create an exquisite living room atmosphere.
