The young couple who stay in this condominium apartment love the colour blue. As such, it was only natural that design firm Hall incorporated the colour into the renovations of the home. The finished home features shades of blue in a myriad of design elements throughout the home. The colour also helps to create a sense of flow and connectivity from room to room.
The owners of this apartment are a young couple who love to host their friends and family. Other than incorporating shades of blue, the home also had to feel open and welcoming. Hall rejigged the existing layout to bring in as much natural light as possible while creating the best spatial flow. All these were the groundwork to create a perfect stage for the furniture selection, which was curated by both the owners and designers.
Hall strategically placed splashes of blue throughout the home. In the living room for example, bright, jewel-toned blues sit alongside cool-toned greys, white and brown. This is reminiscent of precious stones like sapphires that can be found among the debris of the earth they are mined from. Taking centre stage in the living room is the fluffy Profile sofa from Roche Bobois.
The various shades of blue in the kitchen, and the ample natural light have created an ambience that is both warm and soothingly cool. The handsome navy Ilve Stove pairs well with the blueberry shade of the tiles on the kitchen island and the cabinet. On the other side of the counter is a ‘frame’ that straddles the indoors and out, creating cosy breakfast nooks in the kitchen and the balcony outside.
You don’t always need to go big with your favourite colours in order to make them pop. In the master bedroom, touches of blue from the bed linens and soft furnishing stand out against a palette of dark walnut and white. The soft furnishing features a selection of geometric patterns in dark blue and white. This brings visual texture to the room.
You can also create a colour theme using the undertone of a material and the right colour combination. A case in point is this bathroom. Here, most surfaces are finished with timber. Additionally, the granite tiles used on the wall are actually grey. The space however, still registers as having a blue tone. How? Hall has cleverly brought out the grey tiles’ blue undertone by pairing them with solid blue under sink drawers.
