8 Ultra Chic Interiors In Hong Kong To Cop
You know Hong Kong for its famous dim sum joints, night markets and Disneyland. Adding to its touristy reputation is the low supply and high demand of housing – topping the charts as one of the most expensive cities to live in. Which also makes home designs extra special. Here, we show you some ways to transform your home from drab to fab!
1. The best part about this home: modular furniture to create the illusion of a bigger space. While the walls were hacked, furnishings were customised to achieve the desired effect. In the bedroom, the floor-to-ceiling window also evokes a sense of spaciousness (draw the blinds to sleep in comfortably!). Employ neutral tones plus wood accents to unify the home.

2. What kind of a homeowner are you? If the idea of hosting get-togethers in your crib sounds appealing, then this design might be it. Check out the cosy communal space boasting a gold-plated staircase which sees you through the towering book shelf. Really, it tricked us into thinking there’s a mezzanine space! Sit down on the steps and picture spending hours getting immersed in an addictive read. Bonus: the round table is a clever addition to support the whole hosting initiative, too.

3. You’ll never go wrong with an all-minimalist approach – especially if having a clutter-free home is your utmost concern. This Japanese-inspired home is all about clean lines and geometric details (notice the slightly masculine vibes here?). And if you love travelling to Tokyo, lend character to the living space with a map of the metropolitan city to induce wanderlust!

4. You don’t have to own a spacious home to get creative with designs. Proof: this ryokan-style home which maximises the small space with clever built-in features. We particularly heart the sliding door (surprise, surprise!) that led to a private working space. Bring in the tatami-finished mats to keep it quintessentially Japanese. Note how well white and oak wood tones complement each other too!

5. Anchor the living room with luxurious leather sofas (preferably in dark wood colour). But tone down the seriousness and inject cheer by creating a Zen corner with some greenery! A smart approach to conceal unsightly electrical wiring (with a dose of style) is opting for a false ceiling.

6. One innovative way to store your favourite knick-knacks: showcasing them on full-height display shelves to create visual interest. See the storage bench next to the feature wall? You can place padded upholstery for extra comfort! Liven the home with Scandinavian wall decor too. Tip: group the frames in one colour family to pull the look together.

7. A pop of colour in an otherwise monochrome theme can be a refreshing touch. The splash of green in the living room, the soft pink accessories, the pastel blue chair – brilliant yet simple focal points, we’d say! Pick out patterned tiles to create texture and depth in the corridor.

8. Wood and cream not only spell modern, they enlarge a space. Entering the bedroom, full-height transparent windows are used to offer homeowners with the luxury to soak in the city’s glittering skyline at any point of time (how cool is that?). Add a dramatic touch to the common room with a contemporary false ceiling design, which coincidentally reminds us of an upmarket museum! One word: Posh.
