Quality time: a pared-back family home
Space for both quality and alone time. A pared-back home that also allows for easy, comfortable family living. It may sound like quite the brief, but by blending smart solutions with practical, long-lasting furnishing choices, this apartment in the city ticks all the boxes.
A kitchen for connection
This kitchen gets a lot of action, so hardwearing pieces make their appearance throughout, from the chopping boards to the kitchen chairs. Two tables also mean there is always enough space for multiple activities. Homework, a puzzle and meal prep? They can happen here all at once and comfortably too.
Putting the ‘living’ in living room
Feet on the sofa? Why not! When you’ve got removable, washable covers it really takes the fuss out of everyday living. This living room is all about enjoyment and with games and books for all ages in arm’s reach, fun is always accessible when the moment strikes.
A spot for family traditions
Finding an activity everyone enjoys can be a great way to create a family tradition. This living room has been set up for movie nights. Multipurpose tray tables are ideal for snacks, snuggly blankets are at the ready, and a film can either be streamed or a DVD selected from the drawers of the TV bench.
Calming tones for a parental retreat
The main bedroom sticks to basics, favouring pieces made from natural materials to foster a sense of calm. A bamboo pendant lamp, wooden bedframe, seagrass rug and cotton bedding all come together to create a simple and relaxing space, with closed wardrobes keeping possessions hidden yet organised.
Bedrooms for well-being and privacy
Whether they’re just starting school or well into teenhood, it’s possible to create bedrooms for kids to grow into. In both these bedrooms, bigger furniture pieces stand the test of time while smaller easily updatable accessories allow kids to explore their interests in a space that feels their own.
A hallway for coming and going
This is a home for family life and that is clear from the moment you set foot into the hallway. Long and narrow, this space packs a storage punch with hooks, rails, benches and shoe cabinets - all playing their part in making outdoor life easy and accessible for everyone.
