Ilsan New Town is one of those planned cities of South Korea that has been developed to resolve housing problems and rising population pressure on capital Seoul. It is located less than half an hour’s drive away from the South Korean capital, and its newly developed vista is full of shiny contemporary commercial and residential buildings.
The house we are going to visit today is located in a peaceful corner of Ilsan. In many ways the interior of this modern villa reflects the major characteristics of the city – an avid fondness for contemporary aesthetics, meticulous planning and minimalist design. But now we give you a chance to take a peep and judge its features for yourself…
The interior of the house shows the owners’ appreciation for clean and clear forms. Its modern décor is in sync with ongoing trends. A stylish sofa, reminiscent of mid century modern designs, and chair are placed at the focal point of the living room. Coffee tables, lightweight and geometric, complement the other furniture placed here.
The interior décor is of this small house is planned by Home Latte, renowned for their modern and very upbeat designs for private dwellings as well as commercial outlets.
An open floor plan is a preferred option for many, and this modern Korean villa proves to be no exception. The glass windows covering an entire wall keep the entire space flooded with natural light. On overcast days and evenings, ceiling mounted ambient and task lighting fixtures brighten up the mood.
The cosy interior is stylised with wood flooring, white ceilings and pale lilac grey walls. From this point you can also view the tasteful décor of the entire room including the trendy TV cabinet. Small touches like the framed illustrations on the wall and potted plants also have a beautifying effect on the ambience.
The minimalist trend continues in the bedroom. A stylish modern cot and nightstand are the only pieces of furniture decorating this space.
The same restraint is seen in the use of colours, too. The contrasting effects of white and grey shades are emphasised by the feature wall and area rug.
The tasteful décor of the home office-cum-study area is one of the high points of the home. A chic cabinet not only stores the books, documents and stationery in an organised way, but also doubles up as a workstation.
The opposite wall has a ladder converted into a trendy storage area for small household items. A tiny organic rug gracing the corner space, and large windows covered by grey-green curtains also deserve a mention.
A slightly elevated cot with under bed storage occupies the focal area of the kid’s room. Small but cheerful accessories and lighting fixtures brighten up the ambience.
This space too shows interplay between grey and white tones – these designers have a real commitment to neutral colour palettes!
The kitchen is small but has more than enough space for a small family. It is delightfully designed with wall mounted cabinets, shelves and smart grey storage space just under the spotless white worktop. Graceful dining room décor only accentuates the beauty of the room. It is decorated with a combination of a modish dining table, bench and chairs. With mere presence, modern lighting fixtures cheer up the space.
The charming effects of the furniture and accessories give this small and cosy family villa a remarkable makeover. If you are planning to design a small home soon, there is certainly inspiration for you here to take a note of.
