There’s no doubt we all love open, bright and airy spaces — in fact, access to natural light is usually at the top of any home buyer’s checklist. The design team from Urban Soul Project understands this concept and has epitomised the definition of ‘light-filled’ and open in this Greek home.
The design studio specialises in blending modern and traditional styles, and this 1930s home in Thessaloniki presented the perfect opportunity to showcase their skills.
The team has turned one large square room into a home with spaces which flow into one another. By designing each ‘room’ with open entrances, each space feels separate but unified. From the front door, you can see into both the bedroom and the bathroom. The design is bold and daring yet fun and playful.
White walls and ceilings are contrasted by black frames and light fixtures throughout the interiors while unique mint and pink coloured furniture pieces and accents liven up the monochromatic palette.
In the entranceway, mixed terrazzo tiling transforms into light oak wood. The bathroom features elegant green marble while white marble benchtops in the kitchen are complemented by mint green cabinets.
A geometric print carpet creates a dynamic focal point in the living room, while woven reed furniture provides a rustic element. This space is connected to the dining area where circular light fittings and mirrors hang at different heights, drawing the eye upwards. This is a great technique, particularly if you live in a smaller home. By attracting the eyes upwards, you divert attention away from the small floor space.
The master bedroom has been separated from the other living areas by black-framed glass panels. The bed head is made out of matching woven reed and timber, and the curvation in the master bathroom’s benchtop is echoed in the suspended circular mirror.
These fixtures and rounded benchtops lighten the home and create a theme while the use of transparent walls and entryways transforms the space. It’s an intelligent and innovative way to create separate spaces in a home without breaking the visual flow or blocking out natural light.
