In cultural capital of Beijing, you walk into a quiet alley and see a half-closed bright red door of a house that looks like this:
When door is open, what should it look like inside?
It can be a courtyard or a huge private garden....
It could also look like this:
Western style chandelier, Chinese style storage cabinet. Porcelain and rattan chairs are Chinese-style, while sofas and table lamps are Western-style. Kind of weird, but not ugly either.
The designer is talented designer Baptiste Bohu. The combination of Chinese and Western styles is an individual request of the villa owner.
The single entrance lobby has a simple and modern design with a mix of colours. With a little color embellishment, result is an American pastoral style.
The foyer is closely connected to living room and is also center of integration of Chinese and Western cultures throughout building. Even with numerous decorations placed on double height ceiling, it is not crowded.
The dining and kitchen areas are mostly French in style, while a small area of matching colors brings a touch of mobility to elegance.
The downstairs bedroom and bathroom also strive for simplicity, using an array of rattan pieces that stand up to careful tasting.
Before second floor, design style began to change.
Intricate murals and exquisite antique decorations add a new footnote to mix and match.
This sloping roof room is decorated in a festive style with freshness and a rustic feel.
The master bedroom is decorated in a retro style with simple and bright lines.
The backyard is designed in a typical Chinese garden style, which is comfortable and pleasant.
