More and more people are opting for simple and neutral interiors so that every person of the house loves it. It's timeless, concise and easy to either experiment with avant-garde furniture or to add a personal touch to the interiors. One such elegant and sophisticated home is in Pretoria, which was renovated and exquisitely designed by DESSINER INTERIOR ARCHITECTURAL. The professionals also share their experience of renovating this house with us, so just read on to know what they say!
Dominated by different shades of brown, the master bedroom looks very comfortable and stylish. The interior designer has used two patterned metal walls to separate the study from the sleeping area so that the latter still remains private. Rather than going for a usual bedside lamp, the designer chose pendant lights and recessed lamps for a cozy ambiance. Even though there are only half windows, the use of floor-length curtains can actually make the ceilings appear higher.
The interior designer has carried the same neutral tone across the house by employing multiple but well-balanced colors. In the living room, we can see that the white and grey along with some hint of dark brown successfully create a rustic, warm and cozy feeling. The consistent color of curtains also helps visually expand the whole space.
In the family room, the professionals apply brighter color schemes and utilize custom designed furniture made of different materials such as leather, marble, and wood. While the furniture pieces in the living room are rather aesthetic orientated, the ones here are more functional and dynamic as kids would be spending most of their time playing around.
