Some statement sculpture pieces for the stylish home.專為時尚家居而設的眩目雕塑。
Trading the bustle of the city for a more serene, picturesque neighbourhood is a dream shared by many Hong Kong home owners. Two years ago, this couple decided to move from a busy street in Kowloon to an apartment closer to nature in Tai Po. With its wide windows and a spacious balcony almost as large as its interior—1,300 and 1,600 square feet respectively—this home makes full use of the surrounding greenery. What's more, the interior design brings the outside indoors with its nature-inspired aesthetic.
The masterminds behind this home's design are Amy Chan and Jimmy Li, chief designers at interior design firm Decor House, who were brought on to remodel the home after it was purchased. As longtime friends of the clients, Chan and Li leveraged their extensive knowledge of the clients' preferences and lifestyle habits in order to create a true urban refuge for the couple and their teenage son. "The home owners are a busy couple," explained Chan and Li. "The husband is a businessman while the wife is an art and travel lover." Reflecting the wife's jet-setting proclivities, furnishings and accessories were sourced from all over the world: sofas and chairs from Italy, a dining table from Indonesia, and decorative wall panels from Germany.
