Ideas to bookmark

The usage of contrasting colours in the furniture against the shell of the house is simply an outstanding move on Studio Taan’s part. It adds an entirely new dimension to the home without taking up space. 

“The design through the house has an overarching theme of eclectic luxury. Controlled maximalism through the use of colours, patterns and textures to create dynamic, layered experiences through the house is a trend that the home stays true to,” concludes Marian.
