A reminiscent interior design possesses its own imperfection that is a mix of several factors. For this apartment in Singapore, the inspiration mainly consisted of combining classical and modern components that all fit within the wabi sabi aesthetic. Even though you are looking at visualisations, the balance is so right that you would want to enter this residence without the slightest hesitation.
Irena Potonya is a CGI artist who can make a design look truly lifelike and, in this way, she keeps our eyes glued to this apartment. With a surface of 92 square metres, the living area is the heart of the residence, followed up by the kitchen. The furniture was custom made in marble, because of which the interior enjoys a unique furnishing. An inviting sofa and a striking light armature are a few of the outspoken pieces. In the kitchen, a lot of time went into combining the functional with the visual aspect. Again, you notice the marble, namely at the worktop that forms a contrast with the brown walls and the floor of natural wood that is impossible to miss. The kitchen cabinets are made from plaster, a highly elegant choice. Naturally, the same aesthetic was continued in the sleeping areas and the bathrooms. Simple shapes are filled in with high-end materials. In the master bedroom, the lighting is incorporated in the headboard and the walls are also brown. In addition, the relaxed atmosphere is strengthened by the absence of unnecessary details and the careful eye with which all the spaces of the project came to be. Moreover, there are children and guestrooms where you can likewise retreat in a cosy cocoon. What is striking is that one of the guest areas has a mini fountain at the centre, flowers and greenery included. In the children’s bedroom, our attention mainly goes to the warm wood tones and the safe feeling that the space conjures.
Japanese culture was a relevant source of inspiration for the designer
Over the entire line, the importance of comfort and cosiness repetitively comes up. The apartment is meant for a family of three that highly values a natural image, as well as an appreciation for a minimalistic lifestyle. Furthermore, Japanese culture was a relevant source of inspiration for the designer, considering that such characteristics, among others, are central here. You can effortlessly associate the result with this, thanks to the overarching simplicity that is very punctual at the same time. If everything goes well, the design will soon be realised, so that the rare harmony that reigns here will become fully tangible. We always enjoy how much of an impact visualisations can have on us. With at times only a hair’s breadth of a difference from reality, these images can convince many an onlooker that they are beholding the actual home. Hopefully, we will be able to saturate our admiration only more with projects of a similar quality.
