waterfrom design abstracts colorful fashion motifs in taiwanese home

 

influenced by patterns created on clothing and garments, taiwanese studio waterfrom design has realized a colorful home interior in taipei for a young fashion designer, ms.chen. adorned in thick and bright colors, this vibrant home brings in rhythmic and geometric charm.

looking at artworks by rené gruau, a well-known fashion illustrator, waterfrom design has employed colors that offer a french-styled vividness and audacity to the overall interior. the study area in warm orange, the living room in tranquil blue, and the kitchen in sumptuous gold dynamically complement and contrast with one another.

prompted by silk and lace, translucent textures are reinvented as metallic mesh and glass in the electric-blue bookcase at the entrance. this approach produces see-through effects and a contrast between the glossy glass and unadorned slate wall — resulting in an artistic taste with converted optical illusions. in addition, abstracted shapes of bow ties and belts — from garment accessories and art deco — are exhibited as delicate details within the bookcase interior.
