The residence featuring calming dark tones is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city. The stability of the grayscale colors can be perceived through the assemblage of materials, gradually layering a recessed residence. With stone and wood as the base, ambiance light injects an airy feel into the silent atmosphere, creating a daily living environment that the occupants aspire to. To create a simple and streamlined visual appearance, continuous materials are used to create a harmonious alignment of doors. The design of the hidden door reverses a sense of fragmentation of the original layout.

The special paint applied by hand instantly soothes ones’ thoughts when returning. The chandelier diffuses a warm illuminating glow on the metal hanging frame, and its crystal-clear light gives a warm, welcoming feeling and a good first impression. A particular vertical wall is installed to create a complete TV wall, and the dark stone patterns add rich layers to the light gray scene. The interweaving of natural textures in different shades lends visual interest and sophistication to the space. As the theme of the wall behind the sofa, the unrestrained gray stone patterns not only echo the main scenery, but also embody a carefree lifestyle in the flowing veins. Without right angles, the curves on the canopy eliminate the stiffness and create a subtle transition of light and shade as the light strips emit glow.

In the bedroom, the warmth of wood brings a tranquil resting atmosphere, while the annual rings and knots on the solid wood soothe the senses and offer the healing power of nature and forest. The grayscale and dark blue color palettes create a visual sequence that is subdued but not boring.
