A retro-scandinavian union
How to make two very distinct styles work in the same apartement? A rather tricky job given by the apartment owners.
On the one side, the retro style : the kitchen's cement tiles were used as the starting point of this project. It was also used as inspiration for the bathroom's checked tiles. The materials and the furniture - subway tiles, washbasub et retro bathroo fittings – take one's mind back to the chic of the 50's.
On the other side, the scandinavian style : the living room, enlarged by the removal of a running corridor, is clear and luminous and is furnished with natural shades and materials. The floor and furniture are in oak wood, while the main wall is painted in a soothing blue, the stone blue color from Farrow & Ball. The natural atmosphere extends into the bedroom, in shades of white and gray, placed at the end of the apartment for more privacy.
But it's the furniture, which draws its inspiration from Scandinavia, that has been selected for their 1950's retro details (the inclination of the botom of the sofa and the coffee table). Those retro accents link the two atmospheres and bring harmony to the apartment.
The remodel, developed by the Sebastien Markoc agency, has been completed by the SAS RCM company.
