This is a super beautiful space run by Richard Smith of Inspace. They provide interesting and unique location spaces for photographers and stylists. The space is punctuated with bright colour and great art pieces. Beautiful. Minimalist. Beautiful. With a hint of..well…beautiful!
When I squint with an experienced eye, it does look slightly more location-y than live-able. But perhaps that’s what I like about it, it’s air of vive la difference! The white painted wooden floors can work great for shoots – but is it practical to live with? Perhaps, if one practices the Japanese way and removes one’s shoes at home, (which frankly I would do even if the floors were charcoal black). The large cut, clay coloured bathroom tiling is simply gorgeous. Chandeliers in the bathroom? Ha ha ha-wonderful!
The lilac bed in amongst all the white is sublime. Dashes of colour whether subtle like the bed or striking like the smart, contemporary blood red designer chair above help prevent a calming white environment from being soul-less. Well chosen artwork is like an extra loving kiss to the eye-sweep.
To get the look you would obviously need generous amounts of white gloss and matt paint! You would need to bravely let go of everything unnecessary with a good decluttering session as this kind of home is clearly for the minimalist soul. White can be cold, so choices like the red C chair and the large red lips photo frame really add ZING. Artwork is important here. Big, bold and artsy without an overload of cutesy family pictures. To maintain the look your displayed family photos would be mostly stylish black and white reportage shots or an artistic collage of friends and family.
