Home tour- A duplex in a city!


A single mattress with a few decorative cushions on a raised platform that leads out to a calming and relaxing terrace becomes the perfect chill out area.

White shelves were integrated with the white walls to achieve a greater sense of space while providing plenty of storage in the living space.

In the dining area, the white lacquered dining table was custom made to fit in the small space accompanied by a bench and a pair of Panton chairs. 

An exposed vent and a concrete pillar lends a sense of industrial feel to the space.

The skylight provides plenty of natural lighting to the kitchen during the day.

A U-shaped kitchen is an ideal design in a small space to provide maximum counter space and storage. 

Incorporating a few pink and red accessories creates visual interest in a neutral and relaxing bedroom.

Installing a glass door and staining the shower floors the same dark colors ensure flow and continuity. 

The use of polished concrete on the shower walls creates a modern effect as well as being functional.

A contrast between the soft bed and the hard surface concrete walls of the en-suite bathroom creates an interesting visual dynamic.

Personally, I really love this bright and airy modern home. It might be small but it looks beautiful and the design was very well thought out. In addition, it also looks casual and inviting. My favorite room is the chill out area. What is yours?
