An enthralling interior is painted with natural wood tones alongside expanses of black, and embellished with strategic lighting fixtures to luxurious effect.
The neutral palette’s darker side is demonstrated in this compact condominium unit decorated by Nu Infinity, with stretches of black panelling occupying empty planes alongside subtly treated wood from the entryway to the bedroom. A tantalising view of the open layout is reflected in the mirrored panelling at the foyer, with unobtrusive geometric elements of light and wood marking the extents of the kitchenette and dining area.
Geometric Motifs: Perpendicular lines of wood and black trim are deliberately reflected in mirrored panels alongside rays of golden light to achieve an intriguing array of geometric patterns.
An amalgamation of wood and light marks the end of the entryway and the start of the walkway cutting through the open layout of the home. A corner bookcase composed of pale wood divides the reflective wall of the foyer from the entertainment centre in the seating lounge, with hidden sources of light casting golden rays that reflect off the pale wood and the glossy wall panelling like a faceted jewel.
A simplistic dining surface of wood projects from the dark countertops of the kitchenette – its pale wood form accented in the warm light cast from a trio of carbonised pendant lamps that seem to blend into the black background. Echoing the floor space occupied by the width of the dining surface, a simplistic ceiling feature stretches from the far wall of the kitchen to the mirrored wall of the entryway, serving as a visual form of demarcation that also adds a layer of complexity to the plain background.
Across the floor of near-seamless tiles – on the other side of the walkway that divides the open layout, a grey fabric sofa occupies the corner of the seating lounge. Along with a Reuleaux triangle shaped coffee table composed of dark wood, the grey upholstery serves to bridge the gap in colour between the cream floor, the pale wood panelling, and the expanses of black.
A matte black doorway – camouflaged with the cabinetry of the cooking space, leads to the bedroom of this home, where the bold colour scheme is relaxed to allow the ingress of more calming shades to facilitate sleep. While expanses of glossy or matte black dominated the walls of the open layout, black is relegated to a single stretch of glossy panelling between the white upholstery feature wall and the bathroom’s glass curtain wall.
White, blue, and grey permeate the bedroom in the form of fabrics, accentuated by sunlight that is subtly filtered through a set of sheer curtains while a striking splash of green is provided in the form of a diminutive potted plant at the bedside. The Reuleaux triangle shaped bedside surface is formed out of dark wood, echoing the coffee table in the seating lounge and bringing the décor of the bedroom closer into unison with the rest of the home.
