How do you envision your home to feel? That is a question you can start with before deciding on what your home should look like. This is because the basis of how it will look will depend on how you want to feel. To feel like you are on holiday every day, you’d probably want to introduce blue beachy vibes. For those who want to feel relaxed with Muji-inspired space, you must be looking for a natural touch in your home.
In this article, we are shining a light on A&A Concept, a team of lifestyle constructors/consultants whose purpose is to integrate interior design with property development for their clients. They have been consistently creative with all the projects they are handling, and we want to take this opportunity to highlight one of the projects that they have done on the Sierra 3 Show Unit located in Puchong, Selangor.
We will be highlighting three different rooms from the same show unit. All the rooms are equipped with neutral tones as their foundation colour, accented by a pop of bright colour, and geometric shapes. We love how one piece of wood is used as a minimalist dressing table, lining the length of the room.
The use of dark grey panels on the wall can be executed because of the large floor-to-ceiling windows. It allows light to penetrate through to the room when the curtains are drawn. That being said, the clever use of mirrors as panels greatly assists the reflection of light into the room, making it brighter and more inviting.
The contrast in the room is appealing as it uses a similar butterscotch yellow on the Nordic single sofa, stool, and geometric play of the carpet. It calls attention to the furniture, as your eyes are automatically drawn to it. This concept can be applied to a fine piece of furniture you want to focus on.
Take note of the hexagonal mirror on the right side of the room, we will come to it in a bit.
This room is almost whitewashed, but the earthy tones are still reflected through the furniture. We love how they designed the hexagonal pieces to be functional and artistic at the same time. The wood-framed hexagonal shelves each carry a different vibrant colour, attracting our eyes toward it.
The hexagon we keep seeing in their design is also known as the honeycomb shape. Charles Darwin once proclaimed that it is the most perfect design in engineering because, with six sides, it still fits together without gaps.
Unlike the other two rooms above, this third room holds more natural colours. Warm creams, natural wood tones, and white make this room very inviting. You can see that the colour of the desktop and the bottom panels go together seamlessly, although the lines do not match exactly. The grain pattern and colour are what makes mix and matching wood so unique.
From the image, you can see that half of the room is laid out with white panels, and the other half painted cool apple green. Unlike the previous two rooms, this receives lesser light. That is why deep hues cannot be introduced here. Instead, mirror panels are placed on the fitted cupboards to catch and reflect more light in the room.
The room should be a reflection of the person staying in it, right? This is the perfect example of injecting personality into the room without ruining the theme that runs throughout the house. First, ensure the scene is set with neutral tones. In this case, the room is made for two boys obsessed with planes. Then, it is further enhanced by swapping the greys with ash blue. Just like the hexagonal shapes in the previous rooms, the colours that were used on the polygon are used on the wooden plane silhouettes.
More dramatic colours can be used in this room because it is relatively brighter and larger than the third room.
So, what is it for you readers? It is said that earthy tones are the most fashionable colours for the home in 2020. Are you ready to introduce just a little bit of nature into your home? Would you be willing to try any of these ideas within the next few months with your home? Let us know.
