Ekaruna - - Inside Story -

Mr. Andary’s fond­ness of the arts and all things mod­ern is also ac­cen­tu­ated by a very in­ter­est­ing con­trast, one that pairs the nat­u­ral world with ur­ban cul­ture, ap­par­ent in the merg­ing of mir­rored sur­faces and grey walls with more rus­tic ma­te­ri­als, such as wooden ve­neer sur­faces. This fur­ther ac­cen­tu­ates the home’s re­la­tion­ship with mod­ern el­e­ments, es­pe­cially when the wooden com­po­nents are teamed with the stain­less steel that dom­i­nates the kitchen.

Tucked into a cor­ner of the kitchen is a din­ing area inspired by the 1970s café that sits just a few steps away from the de­signer’s home. The com­bi­na­tion of stain­less steel with bright or­ange leather acts as a sub­tle nod of ac­knowl­edge­ment and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the out­moded Beirut café that in­flu­enced it. That’s not the only pop of colour, how­ever, the kitchen boasts a bright pink floor, cre­at­ing a dy­namic mood within the oth­er­wise­monochro­matic apart­ment.
