A re-designed old apartment into an all white minimalist flat

 

The apartment’s design choice is influenced by hundreds of factors, parameters that at first glance can tell us about the owner’s life style, preferences and energy. Often, we create interiors based on the customer’s taste but this time, we didn’t have a specific brief. Our client, Sebastian, asked us to design his old apartment to be able to update it as he intends to sell it. He has outgrown this apartment as he is expecting soon a little baby boy. Therefore, they are moving to a house adapted to their needs.

 

An all white interior with creative patterns.

 

For all interior designs, we must begin with the selection of suitable shades and the furniture range. The modern trend is creating elegant while stylish interior with clean and well-defined lines.  Decorating the elementary surfaces with different textures, such as adding amusing carpets will give a visually balanced space. This Scandinavian style will win over most hearts.

What is a Scandinavian style? Scandinavian design is a design movement characterised by simplicity, minimalism and functionality that emerged in the early 20th century, and which flourished in the 1950’s, in the five Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden).

 

As we were free to do everything that we would like, it is an excellent reason and moment to experiment. Like experimenting with patterns! Thanks to them, you can completely transform an interior without even using contrasting nor bright colours. For example, in a monochrome interior like this one, you can safely choose a geometric and/or floral composition. However, most importantly – do not forget to balance the elements’ saturation out. Thus, by using various ornaments, we have significantly revitalised and brought to live this interior, while keeping the harmonious balance. The simple geometry and with the absence of unnecessary decors elements, strengthen this effect. The main attention in the rooms is oriented precisely to the carpets that liven up the whole layout and let us focus on the functionality of every piece of furniture and not to small detailed finishes.
