In 2013, the Ark.studio has completed an interior design of an apartment in Lisbon. The welcoming nuance of this apartment is can be found in every room since the color scheme which is applied is comparable. The white tone is dominating the entire space of the apartment. It is certainly monotonous but the furnishing has done well in enlivening the room nuance. The wooden furniture is the agent of change of which this monochromatic apartment can spell the warmness and friendliness atmosphere. However, the furniture has also given the identity to the design concept.
The living room, for instance, has the 60’s touch because of the role of the furniture. The wooden chest of drawers which placed in this room is stained in the dark tone. The white accented decoration has improved the retro nuance of this room. In addition, the exposed wooden frame of sofa with the dark green cushion fabrication has also enriches the 60’s nuance of this living room. The home interior design of this living room can look even older with the throw pillows’ cover which adopts the design of the local culture.
On the other side of this living room, two director chairs are settled adjacent to the white shaded windows. This placement adjoins the base book shelf on the one corner of this living room. This will ease the reading activity since the chairs are close to the windows. However, the book shelf and book collection are also important in enriching this interior. In accordance to the retro concept, the classic rolled telephone is placed in this book shelf together with other classic decoration.
Although the house is decorated with a number of furniture, the spacious vibe is maintained very well as the bright tone is retained with the addition of bright lighting. The retro and vintage modern home interior design styles are the character of this house as it can look more elegant yet minimalist.
