I came across this picture today via another blog, and there are a lot of things I like about this interior. My eye was particularly drawn to the cross legged statue sitting on the nice wooden floor. Behind it is a tall window, just like through by the kitchen. The windows look to be practically floor to ceiling and let in so much light. Could that be a balcony with a ironwork railing through that window?
And then the kitchen, a nice clear table with wooden chairs. I love the curved backs of those chairs and the flowers in the middle. I also love the high splashback in the kitchen and the uncluttered look. There are cupboards there, but they seem to disappear, due to the lack of handles I guess. Getting things out of those cupboards must be challenging, but they look great.
I am not convinced by the mass of lights over the table. The messy look is not for me, and the piece of art in the corner, a sculpture on a bent nail – maybe not, but otherwise I like this space. I love the wall as well that you can just see behind the woman, with its dark and glossy paper on it, plus the sofa and its shiny cushions
This is quite a minimalist space in terms of colours, but it works, because it uses a lot of natural materials and light.
what do you think? what do you like and dislike about this space and could you live in it?
