Every now and then, we like to take a peek at what’s happening in interiors around the globe. And when it comes to far flung shores, Taiwan certainly fits the bill. Taiwan continues to emerge as a ‘must-do’ for foodies and adventurers alike. But now, this cosmopolitan East Asian nation is fast emerging as a serious player in the architecture scene.
Taiwan was previously best known for the famous Taipei 101 Tower, which, for six years, was the tallest building in the world. Now, its growing portfolio of projects that feature a blend of East meets West and modernity versus traditional, mean an explosion of uber cool architects and designers doing some pretty amazing stuff.
International interiors: a peek inside a classic-luxe Taiwanese apartment
Case in point; Ris Interior. Located in Taichung City, central Taiwan, Ris Interiors was established in 2013 with a focus on ‘contemporary aesthetics and functional details’. This is illustrated to great effect in the A la Blanc Residential Project, a Taiwanese apartment that will give you plenty of food for thought.
This classic two-bedroom Taiwanese apartment focuses on updating a classic style with unique (and pretty darn gorgeous) touches throughout. From the veined marble walls to the porcelain-tile flooring, the combination of textures and finishes (metallics, copper and brass) pops against a predominantly white colour scheme.
Making the most of a small space, the apartment utilises polyline-structured bookshelves for storage. While a narrow, galley-style kitchen with custom fit cabinetry (we love the combination of charcoal grey cabinetry with brass toned handles and accessories) creates a gorgeous but functional space.
Both the main and second bedroom feature an eclectic mix of tones and textures with private bathrooms attached to each.
We LOVE the royal blue bathroom cabinetry in the main ensuite while the second bathroom fits in seamlessly with the rest of the apartment; the epitome of classic-luxe.
