In the ever changing world, to keep up with the dynamic of life in the city, some people opt to keep a practical and simple living space, while others prefer to create an oasis and sanctuary where they keep their keepsakes and reminder of the days gone past, as well as a place to showcase their priced memorabilia. Other, choose to combine between the two, practicality and showcase. In this instance, we are showcasing about the first living space.
To keep up with the fast pace of the city, this kind of living space requires a simple, clean, sleek and no non-sense look. Monochromatic colors are usually used to give serenity and unity look. The furniture sets are contemporary and modern to keep the practicality while the appliances are usually top of the art to give the sleek look. Trinkets and ornaments are kept minimal to support the sleek and no non-sense look. Living in the city can be expensive and space is something of a luxury. That is why city dwellers prefer to look for an open plan apartment to maximize the space and create the feel of vastness.
An example to this particular living space can be observed in the photos which are posted here. From the moment we lay foot on the threshold (in this case, an elevator), we are greeted with a sleek entryway, with shiny beige marble walls and tiles, and decorated with a long and shiny lacquered table with a concave like shape on its front. Perched on its gleaming surface is a simple Asian pot with exotic orchid inside. The practicality side comes in the form of a floor to ceiling pole which holds two bicycles, one below and another on top of it. This clever idea make room for other objects, and at the same time act as some sort of a show case of everyday practical things.
As we pass the entryway, we are face to face to the open plan floor that was mentioned previously. This vast space holds a living area, a dining room, as well the kitchen. The theme is still sleek and contemporary modern and the monochromatic color theme continues here as well. Shiny beige marble covers the walls and floor and bright lightings are strategically placed so that they enhance the look of the space. Beautiful modern day chandelier hangs above the dining table and small crystal lamps above the kitchen island provide luxurious feel to the place. Large floor to ceiling windows open the space further. Everything becomes bright and light, practical yet it is still a stunning place to come home from work. Simple yet stylish furniture completes the theme. From the modern no non-sense sofa set in the living area, the sleek built-in state of the art kitchen appliances, to the elegant and classy long dining table, the whole ensemble creates a practical yet lavish home space. The whole ensemble is perfect for entertaining friends and colleagues yet it is still practical and can function well for the dynamics of living in the city.
The monochromatic theme continues to the master and children bedroom. They also contain simple but comfortable contemporary modern furniture. Minimal accessory in the master bedroom was substituted by large floor to ceiling windows which opens up to a small private balcony with fresh potted plants. This promises a serene and peaceful rest after a day’s work in the office. Contrary to the lack of trinkets in the master bedroom, the children bedroom holds numerous toys and adornments to cultivate the creative minds of the young. Large and simple monochromatic bed and cupboards connect the theme with the rest of the living space.
Throughout, this practical, monochromatic, open plan apartment holds the main characteristics which are preferred by city dwellers to keep up with the fast pace and dynamics of the city. Bright and shiny, sleek and modern, this living space fulfills the function of a modern dwelling and the need for entertainment and respite from a hard day of work in the city.
