This Beijing Chateau interior is all about shapes and contrast. The dark, hardwood floors are set off beautifully against smooth, white walls that refuse to settle into the expected angle and planes. Instead, the walls are softly rounded in corners and gently curve down hallways, sinuously curling throughout the house and separating the bedrooms from the open living spaces. The staircase soars to the second floor in a gracious sweep.
Oversized, round columns are coated in brilliantly reflective silver resembling mercury glass, with pendant lighting repeating the silver throughout this luxurious private apartment. Contrast is evident in the bathroom as well, where white marble floors are a traditional counterpoint to semi-transparent doors of Plexiglas in intense citrus shades.
This Beijing apartment is filled with color and light against a cool white background and is designed with flexibility in mind. Sliding screens and semi-transparent doors shield the bedrooms but can be opened for greater access to the home. Bold furnishings on a more personal scale give this gorgeous apartment designed by GRAFT such an intimate feel.
