My second image that represents MEDIUM scale is of a living room in a top floor duplex with views overlooking a trendy part of Paris. A three floor to ceiling property where Felipe Oliveira Baptista, a fashion executive and his wife, Severine, reside. When they were hunting for a flat in the city of Paris, they wanted a panorama view, this property was perfect for them.
The view overlooks the Saint Georges neighbourhood in Paris. The tall glazed windows and doors lead out to a wrap around balcony overlooking Neoclassical buildings. It is a beautiful setting by day but a real spectacle by night. Austrian blinds dress the enormous windows, framing the view, the room offers comfortable seating alongside different styles of side tables. The seating is modular which means it can be configured differently with ease, perfect in the size of the space.
The neoclassical colour palette has been used well amongst the furniture and paint, very in keeping with the style of property. I love their names, Jelly Bean Blue, Independence, Spicy Mix, Terra Cotta and Peach-Orange.
This image represents medium scale compared to the other two because the space has been designed and considered around people, the room is filled with the furniture that allows people to sit on the seating facing either the window view, the chimney breast or the entrance to another room whilst still being able to interact with another person who might also be seated. The combination and layout of seating allows people to relax and chat to one another. The high ceiling promotes a sense of spaciousness complimented by the elegance of the Austrian blinds. The floor space opens up around the seating to the double doors before taking in the panoramic view. There are different options of where to sit, whether it’s with the sun shining in or in the cool of the shade. The seating style caters for all sizes of humans whilst offering style and sophistication. Around the seating area is carpet, a soft feeling under foot would give the visitor a calm experience.
