Revamp No.1

Why doesn’t it work? Maybe the photos don’t do it justice, but for a super expensive building this interior comes across as a mash-up between a car sales room and Ikea.  The intention seems to have been to create a distinct feeling between what’s inside and what’s outside, but when that subtle line between nature and manufactured isn’t blurred, the furniture responds by looking brash, staged and disconnected.

Which doesn’t mean reflective surfaces as bad – just that age, colour and natural elements need to have a voice.

Even black works when it’s veined marble.  The chairs, the nod to modernity with the patina of vintage, the table in the middle inviting the voyeur to sit and drink in, be in the room.

Or change it with the presence of wood, natural, warm, characterful.

The pink chairs..the colours.
