The Art of Living Big in Small Spaces
City living has always been known as "tight" and "small" living, but not this time around. We call it "the art of living big', no matter how small the space is. A space is a space, whether big or small, but the design is what introduces an element of fun and creativity.
At Sansa Interiors, we gave this project a soul by creating a way of being. We observed our clients and studied how they move, we found out their interests, their favourite colours, and their top travel destinations. We then took all of that and tailored it to a simple and clean dream apartment.
Our focus was to bring in subtle tones and finishes throughout the space with pops of colour. We experimented with manipulating positive and negative spaces to create a flow from one corner to the other.
The home office showcases the contrast between the clean white walls and the soft yet bold blush pink gallery wall and adjacent furniture. The furniture selection is very minimal and does not interfere with the ambient flow, instead, it helps create a successful grounding experience.
Some of the requirements we were given:
- Home office for two people
- A reading nook
- Clean/simple kitchen
- A place to retreat at the end of the day
Design Tips for Living Big:
- Mirrors near windows
- The more plants the better!
- A subtle colour palette with accent pieces to bring in pops of colour
- Minimal furniture
- Bring in your personality, via art pieces or woven pillows
