Yeh Design takes on this project while completion takes place step by step. The brief is to make his home cozier. First came the wardrobe at the entrance.
As the Yeh Design project of the apartment in the heart of Amsterdam is currently under construction, more sneak peeks of the design are revealed here. Hsiu Li thought to show an interesting example of how she tackled the redesign of the souterrain of the apartment. The space came already with nice features, a metal stair with a golden cork wallpaper on the wall and a long white corridor. Still, the goal of Yeh Design was to reach a sophisticated hotel look of the apartment, a cozy and modern feel in each area of the house.
Two questions arose: ‘how can a space with such features be elevated?’ and ‘how can it come to life in a homogenous way?’. Hsiu Li suggested a simple and yet efficient way to bind the elements together and enhance the existing architecture. She chose a natural, fibre-made wallpaper to cover the white corridor walls and match the golden cork wallpaper that was already present.
The reason why this solution worked so well is because the wallpaper created a warm and welcoming feeling in the corridor, it also reflected the light and bonded together with the golden stair wall in a subtle and elegant way. So, what do you think about the results? Hsiu Li suggests to mix wallpapers as you do for pillows and linen, differentiate the patterns scale so that they don’t compete visually. She also recommends to look at the wallpapers of brands like Elitis, Dutch Wallpaper Company and Arte which provide perspective on the new trends.
