Interior design in Hong Kong is a unique landscape where innovation, ingenuity and creativity blend with a diverse range of aesthetic styles and trends. When done well, interior design can completely reshape and transform the way a space looks and feels like to live in. This is especially true in Hong Kong, where many residential homes are smaller and more compact in comparison to elsewhere in the world.
inT Design is a professional interior design company in Hong Kong. We have personally witnessed and been part of some of the city’s most popular and influential interior design trends, including industrial, Scandinavian, Japanese, minimalist, and others. Coupled with Hong Kong’s residential spaces, these styles each have their own unique characteristics that come together to create more cosy, modern, and spacious environments. Sometimes, it is hard to know exactly which style is your favourite without taking a closer look into some real-life examples. Here are 5 of our residential interior design projects in Hong Kong that have been designed to suit the needs of modern living.
This apartment, located in the Central Park development in Olympic Station, fuses a contemporary and elegant design style with a slightly larger four-bedroom layout. The goals of this project were to make a family home in which the owners newborn baby could grow up in. As such, plenty of natural light and a playroom were included in the design, as well as more simplistic and adaptable furniture pieces and fittings that can be changed and modified as the family settles into their new home and their child gets older.
To continue with the modern and family-oriented design style, the color scheme was chosen to be both cosy, relaxing, and inviting. Lots of delicate pinks and greys were used throughout the house, with nothing too bold or overbearing in any of the rooms. Two of the more interesting design choices were to repurpose the maid’s room into a walk-in closet and separate kitchen and one of the bedrooms into a much larger and more contemporary bathroom.
Living in the new territories means living a bit farther out from the hustle and bustle of central Hong Kong, but it also offers a far more peaceful and tranquil environment. This residential property in Tai Po is surrounded by green countryside and rolling green hills and originally had three bedrooms in a 700 square foot layout.
The goal of this interior design project was to create a space perfect for a work-from-home arrangement, was completely dog-friendly, and embodied the beauty of the nearby landscape into its aesthetics. We started by knocking down the kitchen wall in order to open up the space and invite views from the outside into more areas of the home. This also assisted with the floor-to-ceiling windows to create an extremely open, spacious and cosy space.
The result is an extremely spacious and Scandinavian-themed design style that invites residents and guests into the space. Luxurious blue elements add another dimension to the property, while complimentary artwork and lighting greatly add to the overall ambience.
Simplicity is present in all the design choices of this project. An overarching Nordic influence is also present when it comes to colour choices, accenting features, and more. In this project, one of the first design choices was to transform the study room into an additional living area, which is more suitable for the couple living in the property who often invite their friends around. The dining area was chosen to be near the bigger windows in the apartment to create a more welcoming and inviting atmosphere when guests are around and eating, while the kitchen area was expanded to make room for more appliances.
As interior designers, we paid special attention to the chosen colour scheme, lighting, and materials. We chose lots of greys, such as stone flooring, alongside delicate lighting pieces like chandeliers to create a warm, bright, and atmospheric feel in the apartment.
Everyone’s own personal taste and sense of interior design is different, and sometimes merging two influences can create an entirely unique space that satisfies the tastes of all living in it. This three-bedroom apartment was designed in a way that incorporates Scandinavian and Japanese styles.
The wooden grain tiles and geometric shapes are an example of where both Japanese and Scandinavian styling was merged and create a visually contrasting yet pleasing look in the home. Meanwhile, a careful consideration of light and shadow allowed us as interior designers, to better hide ceiling beams and create the illusion of greater space. This was especially important to the husband, who is an avid toy collector and needed adequate space to store his belongings.
This 1,206 square foot apartment was designed around the purpose of being a family home. The overarching design goal was to make the space as inviting and comfortable as possible for the couple and their two young children. Many of the design features, like the simple colour scheme and warm floorboards, were chosen in order to accentuate the beautiful view and blue colour of Victoria Harbour. In order to populate the space without making it feel cramped, we made great use of textured wall patterns and built-in cabinets. This also contributed to the overall sleek appearance of the entire apartment.
