A neutral palette is strictly applied, in conjunction with decorative accents of wood and stone to achieve the definition of modern elegance.
Q1 Interior Concept demonstrates the textbook application of a neutral palette in this family home, bringing it to luxurious heights with the addition of stone and wood to imbue the stringently modern décor with a measure of comforting fluidity. The neutral palette is presented in full in the seating lounge, with cream stone flooring, walls dressed in light grey, and a recessed ceiling feature shaded in a pale shade of brown. A sectional sofa set upholstered in grey fabric demarcates the footprint of the seating lounge while a set of black coffee tables punctuates the space and completes the neutral palette.
Across the open layout, the adjacent dining area expresses the lighter side of this home’s colour scheme with a circular table composed of white marble accompanied by button-backed leather upholstery in cream. Wood panels representing the darker tones of the neutral palette envelop the pale space with a warming layer, while the various colours of the space converge on a decorative feature resembling a slice of coral growth bathed in golden light.
The neutral colour palette is similarly expressed elsewhere in the home, albeit with different shades taking the central role depending on the nature of the space. The dry kitchen is expectedly saturated in white, with the visible grains of wood expressed in the shelving, cabinetry, and countertops – while the home office is rendered in a serious tone with dark grey cabinetry providing contrast in shade against the pale architectural finishes. The bedrooms are saturated in lighter tones, with a pale shade of wood taking the forefront against a background of peach and cream fixtures.
The more mature of these bedspaces presents an intriguingly simplistic arrangement of a mattress on a generous bed platform of wood. The modern take on a tatami platform is lit along its curved edge, the length of which is mirrored and similarly lit on the decorative ceiling feature above. The child’s room contains this home’s next few features of note – a platform that splits the height of the bedroom to provide the young occupant with another layer of exploration and storage facilities above the bed, and as with the adult bedroom, the bed platform projects from – and is integrated with, the wall in this bedroom. But unlike the more mature bedroom, the bedside surfaces here seamlessly morph into a nearby surface for studious endeavours. seamlessly morph into a nearby surface for studious endeavours.
