We were called one day for some serious interior help! Our client had recently purchased an apartment in Umhlanga for his parents. The only problem was that it was an incredibly small apartment. Luckily, we had dealt with many small spaces before, therefore we knew exactly what to do to help make the space bigger. With a few tricks up our sleeves, we went in to give this tiny home, a complete makeover.
The back bedroom walls were wallpapered with gorgeous patterned wallpapers. This would definitely lead one’s eyes up, making the room feel higher than what it actually is. The client had the position of the beds up against the walls, with the side of the bed facing towards the entrance of the room. By swapping the position of the bed over to the adjacent wall, the entrance way became a lot bigger, helping the room feel more open.
The client wanted the space to be timeless, and for the decor to age well. They certainly did not want to be redoing their home in just a few years. This is why the palettes were kept neutral, with muted colours. We popped in a small dining table as there was hardly any space for a dining room! In order to save costs, we ran three panels of wallpaper behind the tv, which became quite a striking feature of the space.
We wanted to hang artworks in the living area, but battled to find anything suitable. This is when we got the idea to print a custom artwork, and divide it into 6 frames. This way, we could have a large artwork that was not plain and rectangular, but cut up into different sections. The image below is the artwork we used.
