When “East meets West”, “Contemporary looks at the Past”, “Design melts in Fashion” this could be how an interior would look like. Our new design for a brand new penthouse in Beijing. This apartment is basically a voyage in time and space that wants to surround our clients with elements taken by old times stories mixing them with classic Asians elements and contemporary ones creating a path of continuous unexpected environment. Already from the entrance the “chevron” oak floor reveals the personality of the whole space, rattan wall painted in “antique pink”, gold frames and marble, create a timeless cozy romantic atmosphere.

The living room is a multi-cultural creative space, innovative elements are integrated with classic pieces of design. The golden circular chandelier in the living room, the oriental subjects of the art paintings, the modern essential sofa and the marble coffee table are mixed together to make the living room stand out and highlight the owners ‘elegant lifestyle. The mustard color armchairs are paired with a vibrant feeling, making the quiet living room warm and lively. The black and white diamond rug also participates to enrich without spoiling the integrity of the space.

In the corner of the dining area, the Seletti classic Monkey lamp and the oriental seamless embroidery wallpaper are matched with the modern marble surface of the dining table. Chinese and Western elements coexist in the same space in different postures, blending and enriching the overall style, showing more visual layering. MDF dining chairs customized with Missoni fabrics give a refreshing touch, here to receive friends and enjoy colors and taste of conviviality.

Children room is a double color space, white and “sky blue”. The blue is the perfect color to get relaxed, it’s the color of the sky, the infinite, the color of the dreams. White mountains are outlined all around the room, and the bed perfectly merge in the mountain landscape creating a warm wood refuge to embrace the children imagination. The cartoony wallpaper inside this refuge appears relaxing and helps to bring the calm of beautiful dreams.
The cabinets in the children room hide a secret door, which is perfectly concealed in the wardrobe design. Through this secret passage it’s possible to reach the guest room which, in case of no guests, is the daily children activity room. One whole wall is covered with a blackboard paint to allow children to freely express their artistic potentials. This room has a foldable bed which can be used in case guests are in the house. For this room we have chosen to use “wheat yellow” color to let children be lively, full of vigor and vitality in their daytime activities.

The first floor bathroom is also sky blue color and white marble, black frames outline the whole space, including the original shape of the bath frame and the mirror where a Flos Globall lamp works as sconce lamp.

The staircase leads from the first floor to the second floor. It is a brand new world, an atopic place designed as a window on a hypothetical fantastic garden of delights. Golden profiles frame the “outdoor” space giving the feeling of being inside a golden cage watching outward from the middle of the garden. The wallpaper not only covers walls but also covers and hides three big closets which with their sliding doors get practically camouflaged at first sight.

The mezzanine area is an extension of the master bedroom with an office corner and a sofa to watch a television. Main feature of this space are the clouds sticking out all around from the “antique pink” basement like the sky just above an outdoor wall. This beautiful wallpaper by Fornasetti also reminds Chinese clouds pattern “xiang yun” adding a touch of eastern feeling to the space. Four total height sliding panels hide the TV cabinet and a bookshelf.

The main bedroom is split in two areas through different colors and materials. The make up area/wardrobe are made in red rosewood with golden details. The total look “pistachio green” of the bedroom contrast with the luxury background of the changing area. In the bedroom the blend of Italian and Asian becomes very evident: the Chinese wallpaper stand next to all super famous Italian classic pieces of furniture, Nathalie bed by FLOU (Vico Magistretti design 1978), Componibili bedside tables by Kartel, two sconces reproduce vintage Azucena ones (no more on the market), pending Lamp Sul Sole Va by Viabizzuno.

Another secret passage hidden among the luxury closet doors leads from the make up/wardrobe area to the walk-in-closet and through the walk-in-closet to the master bathroom. The master bathroom follows the first floor bathrooms in its style but changes its identity by replacing the blue with an “antique pink”, also framed by black metal profiles. “Antique pink” is very dreamy color and brighten up the whole space, filling it with freshness and elegance.

The winter garden is filled with tropical plants and a big surface covered by the wallpaper with tropical patterns which contribute to highlight the “exotic voyage” style of this whole space. Sofas in rattan, coconut fibers rug, light gold accessories complete the room making it a perfect place for having a cup of fragrant teas, relax, listen to music, look at magazines, hold parties and appreciate how wonderful life is.
