Kaohsiung city, Taiwan is the home of this 92 square meter bachelor’s apartment inspired by traveling and exuding a charming industrial feel. The idea for this unusual combination belongs to House Design studio, who adapted the crib to the living needs of a single 30-year-old engineer: “After the client doing a lot of research, he came to us and hoped to have a home with natural cement-based environment for him to relax in after long working days. During construction, he had to keep his parents from knowing the truth that we applied cement finish to walls since normally senior people think of cement-finish house as unfinished house“. Construction site was always locked to avoid his parents’ visiting.
The design scheme is packed with original elements: a suitcase board was employed for drawers and a metal mini-bar was considered the proper choice for dining. Steel bars were applied to the shelving units to avoid heaviness in the study room. A glass see-through shelf inspires lightness in the living area. What we like best about this Taiwan apartment is how the designers creatively combined a variety of materials and textures, without the place feeling cluttered.

Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
Emerald is a color that has consistently topped trend charts in recent times and its jewel-toned glamor is perfect for bedrooms with Hollywood Regency style. Malachite pattern and color is also a smart choice if you love that luxurious look in the bedroom while eclectic bedrooms drenched in green goodness steal the show with sheer audacity and flair.
