In the 63㎡ private guest house, the light source, the reflection of mirror, and the matching of different materials depict the elegant texture of the space. Without pure white walls, large wooden elements cover the space to create a sense of stability. Upon entering the room, the flat glass lamps on the canopy shed bright light. By large gray mirrors, light is spread out to make the glow more well-distributed and transparent, creating a quiet and unobtrusive entrance. The wooden cabinets on the top lead the way to the living room. Large slabs pave the space. The roughness and originality of the stone is expressed through the undulating texture and the interlocking shades of color. Starting with a wooden TV cabinet and extending upward to frame the main TV wall, a harmonious dialogue between wood and stone shows that hardness and softness working as one. Instead of installing a wall behind the sofa, the flexible furniture leaves plenty of room for display. The wall on one side is inlaid with copper mirror. The blurred distinction softens the visual rigidity and releases the depth of field. The two straight light tracks in the canopy serve as an extension of the main TV wall, creating the axis of the public sphere and a sense of hierarchy with the change of color scheme. In the private sphere, the dark coffee-colored fabric gives the softest touch, and the geometrically shaped dividing lines delineate the vivid three-dimensional layers. The light passes through the gauze curtain and bring warmth and comfort to the room. A beautiful morning awaits you.
