What Makes this Design Work?

The building is a lesson in interior design genius. Featuring many design concepts that set this building on a whole new level, below are a few key elements that make this design stand out.

The Minimalist Approach

Minimalist designs have become the trend in the interior design business today. Taking a quick look at the building, it is so easy to know why. The building’s interior maximizes space and makes the entire design look cleaner by making do with only those things that matter.

The minimalist approach also comes with an extra benefit. By doing away with those things that have no use in the building’s overall design, you ensure that there is no “noise” in the background. This way, there are no distractions in the design, and the most important elements get all the spotlight they need.

The Exquisite Furniture

The furniture of any building is like jewels on a beautiful woman. Of course, the jewels don’t make them beautiful, but they most definitely complement and even accentuate that beauty. Every single piece of furniture in this building does exactly that.

The elegance of these pieces of furniture is probably the biggest factor that makes them the perfect fit for this home. All minimalistic in their own right, these pieces of furniture stand out not because of any overly lavish designs or extravagant, but because of their simple elegance that borders on perfection.

This simple elegance can be observed in everything from the simple Mandarin Rack and its exquisitely polished woodwork to the simple yet stunning 4’ NOOI Rattan Sideboard and even the elegant tinted gold coffee table. Then there are the lounges, dining sets, sofas, bed frames, side tables, and every other piece of furniture in the building, all of which are so beautiful in their simplicity, they steal the spotlight every time.

While the beauty of these individual pieces of furniture is commendable, how perfectly they complement each other truly takes this building to a whole other level in terms of interior design.

The Color Scheme

The importance of color is never lost on any designer worth their salt. It wasn’t lost on the designers here, either. The use of colors in the interiors of this building puts the final finishing touches into this design and brings out the full extent of this design’s beauty.

The colors used in this design to make up a stunning color scheme that fits perfectly with the building’s minimalist design. Featuring cool tones in the background, the off-white color does a great job of making the overall design look clean and cool while putting all other elements in the room on display. This is perfectly complemented by the brown curtains and rugs, which add personality to the entire design.

To best maximize the effect of this color scheme, pieces of furniture were chosen to fit perfectly into this design. The design features racks and cabinets with a darker brown or black coloration, the perfect choice for an off-white background with brown curtains. To add a bit more personality to the design without deviating from the color scheme, the sofas, stools, tables, and chairs used all featured colors that complemented either the off-white background or the brown shelf perfectly. This harmony of colors is what holds the interior design elements together.
