The owners of this redeveloped old residence found themselves in a quandary, when they were to furnish it. One of the problem areas was the long hallway: how could it be used as a storage space without making it look too narrow and even longer? The solution was a built-in floor-to-ceiling cabinet in the rear section, and a wardrobe and a sideboard on either side of the entry. A subdued golden wallpaper strip optically connects both sections.
The kitchen includes a homely dining corner. The flamboyant floor-to-ceiling curtain featuring stacked Chinese bowls is the eye-catcher here, matched perfectly by the glass splash back and an existing raspberry-coloured sideboard. In the living room, two stylish armchairs complement the classic sofa, creating a space that invites warm conversation or a quiet reading. Kept in natural colours, this space is both relaxed and soulful.
