Dating back to the design phase, there’s a conflict between house owners. The wife is a romantic woman who adores in British or French country style; whereas the husband is fond of contemporary design with a few luxury touches. As a result, we simplified the forms and linear of country style decoration, and add modern material in the space, to satisfy both side’s desires. Luckily, we had a consensus to keep free plan and life functions along the way, and all family members were truly satisfied with their new home.

A light-filled interior space is a mutual consensus shared by house owners.  Lush vibes flourish throughout the interior with greyish blue undertones in every morning.

The ceiling attracts attention for its arc linear details with natural wood-veneering, which not only echoing to round details on tile-flooring but also implying the house owner’s amiable and open-minded characteristics.  Minimalist linear composition and simplified controls of the color palette create restful open-concept living areas.

Along the edge of a blue archway, the pinnacle meets green plants on hanging shelves, and down to the white marble tabletop reflecting the owner’s graceful charisma.  Whether daily chores or leisure times, the space is calm and tranquil.

The airy vibes sustain to upstairs, wood elements delineate master bedroom, and soft colors light up bedrooms.  A wide futon low-bed alongside window in the reading room, where family members spend time with parents and children, bask in the sun with the breezy atmosphere.  Home, therefore, is a good and fortunate place, just like the project name’s literal meaning: ‘a place in the sun’.
