Parental Home – Fagaras, Brasov
This project has a special story, and its transformation does not fall short.
This is about a space with an area of 58 sqm, the living room in the parental home of our designer, David Raymond.
The design project began in February 2019, when he decided to bring back to life the place where he grew up.
The room was cluttered, devoid of personality and unwelcoming, therefore, it was desired to change the appearance of the room and create a relaxed environment, welcoming and comfortable, where the family could reunite and enjoy the time spent together, creating memories in a warm place.
Each step taken required a lot of attention, responsibility and work, as the project came with many challenges.
The most complex challenge was to rethink the entire room both in terms of decor and thermal and electrical installations, so we implemented a special and rarely approached interior design style in our area – the tropical minimalist style.
The color scheme was inspired by the combination of these 2 styles, creating balance and harmony.
The color palette ranges from warm tones, such as beige and off-white colors, to pastel green, gray, shades of brown, along with the contrasting noncolors white and black.
This type of interior design is rarely found in our country, reflecting the idea of contemporary, open, luminous space that creates an image of clarity, calm, but also exclusivity. It combines in a harmonious manner different types of wood in warm, light colors, concrete elements, as well as iron and aluminum components, thus rendering the ideal mix between rustic and modern.
The ceiling was decorated using pine tree beams, treated in such a way as to acquire a warm shade and a uniform appearance, the initial version being made of plasterboard with built-in spotlights. Another highlight of the room is given by the staircase with minimalist appearance and metal structure, the steps being sustained by a beam. So, this becomes the core element that unites the innovation of the minimalist elements with the rustic look, given by the tropical influences.
Even though the entire project was a real challenge from the beginning, the final result exceeded all expectations, especially due to the fact that this type of interior design, tropical minimalist, is not very common in the Făgăraș area. Now, this place really close to the designer’s heart reflects a welcoming and warm space, ideal for family gatherings, and to host the creation of unforgettable memories!
