briefing The key looks, colours and pieces to update your space | 重點裝飾靈感

GILDED GLAMOUR If there was a decade that epitomised unadulterated decadence, it was the roaring 1920s, of which the debonair art-deco decorating style is seeing a resurgence. Transpose a touch of that ritzy fun into the 21st century with lacquered and golden accents, exuberant furnishings and curvilinear fixtures that make a big statement – but pair them against softer backdrops, think creme wall coverings or monochromatic carpeting, for a balanced, modern twist. 如要追溯至蘊含純正頹廢風美學的芳華年代,定必然是重現裝 飾藝術時期美學的1920年代光輝歲月。把這魅力不凡的設計帶 到 21世紀吧:焗漆、金色元素、華麗裝飾與起落有致的線條配

SOFT EDGES A masculine decorative scheme isn’t limited to sharp corners and rough textures. Add a soft, delicate touch to your environs through sculptural accents and natureinspired shades. A wall-hung art piece, a photograph with a wooden frame, as well as a sumptuous, velvet-upholstered sofa simply contribute to a lush, contemporary sanctuary. 剛烈型格的裝飾設計,不只限於運用角緣尖銳 和質感粗糙的單品。為你的生活環境添上大自 然風色彩和充滿有機氣息的雕塑裝飾,即可打 造細膩柔和的獨特氛圍。一幅掛牆藝術作品、

BRIEFING

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY Go unconventional and artistic to pull off an authentic look in your residence. The chic, whimsical aesthetics emphasise ethnic and vintage accents – think tribal prints, geometric patterns, rattan designs and eclectic collections of art as these are the hallmarks of the eclectic style. Don’t forget to add a mix of pillows and throws for that extra comfort. 大走不平凡路向,為居所注入充滿藝術風的獨特美學。這種時尚而不拘 一格的設計講求民族色彩和復古細節:部落圖案、幾何印花、藤製設計、 兼收並蓄的藝術收藏,也是打造如此風格的重點元素。別忘記添置款式

Move away from decidedly subdued colour schemes and embrace an energetic, uplifting ambience composed of vibrant shades. From soft pastel blushes to bold striking hues, the trend of pink is continuously spreading the world over. For those who are ready to take the plunge, pair the delightful tone with white and blue to make a statement. Take note of this exuberant kitchen designed by Adam Nathaniel Furman for an apartment in Tokyo’s bustling Nagatcho district – let go and have fun!

HEART OF THE HOME A place for life’s various occasions, the living room is worth every endeavor to keep it conducive and cosy 家中的客廳伴你度過很多人生重要時刻,值得 全心全意打造出舒適又實用的格調

It’s 2019, and the living room has taken an additional role – on top of sitting room, reading nook, homework den, play pen, and all-around gathering space. “As more and more people work from home, the living room has become a co-working space,” says Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui of design studio Bean Buro. That’s not to say, however, that all living room design considerations point to making it primarily workspace-conducive. On the contrary, that our homes might cater to more screen-centric activities makes it all the more important to incorporate warm and characterful touches. “Society is nostalgic for past processes and handiwork – adding crafted materials to our spaces is very important to allow us to feel grounded,” says designer Sophie Ashby of West London-based Studio Ashby. Antiques, which are making a soft comeback, and earth-inspired palettes count for such touches. As Hong Kong-based designer, Peggy Bels, points out: “This 2019, trends are still in natural and organic materials – wood, stone, and soft organic fabrics.” As the ever-multifunctional room, the living area will no doubt evolve with the times – and with technology. All the while, its core purpose of facilitating human connections remain, and we’d benefit ourselves a great deal by taking design cues accordingly. 來到2019年,除了作起居室、閱讀室、做功課地點、玩樂空間和任何形式的聚腳 點之外,客廳又獲賦予另一全新用途。設計公司Bean Buro的Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui表示: 「現時愈來愈多人在家工作,客廳亦變成一個半工作區。」不過,這並不代表客廳會以工 作環境為設計之本;反之,我們的居所應迎合各種需要使用屏幕的活動,所以在設計上必 須注入更多溫暖格調和個人特色。西倫敦設計公司Studio Ashby的設計師Sophie Ashby指 出:「社會傾向懷緬過去和手工藝品,為居所加入手工物料讓我們更有歸屬感。」古董正 悄悄回歸主流,而大地色調亦與之十分相配。香港設計師Peggy Bels解釋:「今年的潮流 仍是以天然和有機物料為主,例如木材、石材和有機軟布藝。」客廳作為多用途空間,當 然會隨著時間以及科技發展而有所轉變。這個重要區域一直肩負著聯繫人們的重任,我們 可從設計潮流中獲得啟示,作出最符合需要的整修。

1. INSPIRATION: DOWN TO EARTH The Instagram-approved charm of bone-white minimalism may be here to stay, but in an era of screens it pays to look up and find vignettes of warm, characterful touches. Find inspiration in the elements – water, wind and fire, even flora and fauna, gemstones and rocks – to bring a touch of the wild world indoors. Deep colours, jewel tones, and pieces with history that draw from our natural environment inject a more lived-in look. 在Instagram大受歡迎的骨白色簡約主題仍會流行,但在這個屏幕年代,居所更需要溫暖 和個性,特別是在這個被視作共享生活的重點。可從各式元素中尋找靈感——水、風、火、花 草、動物、寶石和石材——為客廳帶來野外氣息。深色調、珠寶色以及充滿個性和歷史故事並 取材自大自然的家品,能為空間注入生氣和活力。

tips 24 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• Invest in multi-functional furniture with nature-inspired, tactile qualities. • Consider antiques, which are often priced similarly to highstreet finds but come in better quality. Bonus: they also age better. • 選用以自然為本、觸感豐富的多功能傢具。 • 可考慮購買古董,價錢跟店舖買到的相若,但質素更好。 額外優點:古董愈陳舊愈好看。

AU NATUREL

Bring a touch of earthiness into a space with rustic hues - think dark burgundy, taupe and mustard; floral upholstery, meanwhile, add plenty of charm. 崇尚天然 以田園風色彩為空間注入樸素質感, 深紅色、土色和芥末色也是理想選 擇;帶花紋圖案的襯墊則更顯魅力。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES As the gathering place for many of life’s moments and relationships, it’s important to go with a well-balanced palette for the living room – not too neutral as to be boring, neither too busy as to be overwhelming. “I always start by using neutral base tones, then adding in bolder pops of colour from paintings, fabrics, and sculptures,” says Sophie. Peggy concurs: “I always use natural, warm colours for the walls, mostly a palette of warm greys.” From there, approach colour addition through art, designer and antique furniture, or even accent walls, which help create depth in a room. Terracotta hues, various shades of green, as well as brass and metallic elements often tie together disparate pieces and create a sense of coherence and groundedness in a room. Darker feature walls work to a similar effect, contrasting against more neutral elements and allowing brighter touches to pop. 人生很多時刻和聚會都在這裡發生,必須以平衡的色 彩組合來裝飾客廳。不要太過中性,以免沉悶乏味,也不能 過於花巧,否則會有浮誇忙亂之感。 Sophie說:「我會從中性色作底色著手,再加入帶有 明亮色彩的油畫、布藝和雕塑。」Peggy也大表贊成:「我 常選用天然、溫暖的顏色作牆色,多數是暖暖的灰色調。」 然後,你可以透過藝術品、設計師及古董傢具,甚至 是特色牆壁來加添色彩,為空間製造深度。赤褐色、不同深 淺的綠色,還有黃銅和金屬元素,能把各式各樣的家品聯繫 起來,為客廳營造一致性。深色特色牆有著相似效果,跟其 他中性元素交織出對比,同時讓較為明亮的色調突圍而出。 還有一個把色彩組合起來的新穎方法,但首先你要認 清自己的喜好。Kenny認為這就像創作一首詩:「我們研究 客廳的用料和用色意念,有如根據客人喜好而創作的詩,可 以是演繹出法國布列塔尼藍調的『海邊建築』,或是呈現日 本京都山中一片秋紅的『紅葉片片』。」

Pops of colour, sprightly patterns and lush textures are the keys to spicing up neutral-toned surroundings; GAN’s Mirage rug by Patricia Urquiola. 精彩組合 繽紛色調、奪目圖案和奢華 質感是帶動中色裝潢的重點; Patricia Urquiola為GAN設計 的Mirage地毯便是佳證。

在營造個人風格時別忘了加入圖案和質感。富有自然格調的大理石和石 製面材屬永恆之選,能製造有趣效果。「應用圖案時,我們多數利用增加層次 感的方式將之融入建築格局之中。」Bean Buro的Lorène Faure說:「低調呈 現木紋、石紋、布藝觸感和金屬的自然特性。」這些自然元素亦跟較繽紛和多 樣的圖案相配,但有時則需要一個能為空間定調的重點細節。

For a more inspired way to put together a colour palette, consider your own likes and inclinations. Kenny refers to this as the creation of a ‘poetic narrative’. “Our approach to developing the materials and colour scheme for the living room is often inspired by a poetic narrative that we develop with our clients’ interests – be it ‘seaside architecture’ that interprets the French blues of Brittany, or ‘autumn leaves’ that interpret the Japanese reds in Kyoto mountains,” he says. Don’t forget patterns and textures in the creation of your motif. Surfaces in marble and wood – drawn from the natural environment – are timeless options that create interest with subtlety. “Our approach to ‘pattern’ is often as a delicate layer integrated into the architectural setting,” says Lorène Faure of Bean Buro. “We prefer to subtly express the wood grains, stone textures, tactility of fabrics, and natural reflexivity of metals.” These natural touches also complement more colourful and graphic approaches to pattern, which often require an anchoring element.

Comfortable, well-crafted chairs and sofas turn any living area into a beloved gathering space; add visual interest into a space with H&M Home’s cushion, Julep sofa and Zoe gold floor lamp from Artemest.

3. FIXTURES AND FURNISHINGS

我們的專家一致認為,一個優美客廳需具備3大 要素:一張優質梳化、一張咖啡桌和安排妥當的燈光。 「梳化是客廳重點:你會在此放鬆身心、招呼客 人、跟親友互動。」Timothy Oulton說:「如果你投 資一張理想又合適的梳化,便可因應其款式再挑選其他 傢具和家品。」Kenny指出,一張優質舒適的梳化能讓 你用上好幾年。 咖啡桌除了能用作擺放收藏品、咖啡或美酒的桌 面空間,亦能為客廳風格定調。Sophie表示,以金屬、 黃銅或大理石打造的奪目設計,能跟中性色調的牆壁和 地板形成悅目對比。Timothy亦推薦行李箱式咖啡桌, 能提供額外的儲物空間。 最後,仔細考量燈光安排,不同時間的日光變 化,以及你想利用燈具營造哪種情調。可裝設一盞 款式奪目吊燈,再加入檯燈和地燈作輔助。Sophie 建議:「在小空間內可改用壁燈,以騰出更多地板空 間。」Peggy很欣賞Sonder Living的黃銅和黑色燈具 設計,Timothy則推介Selenite水晶吊燈,能營造情調 之餘又能吸引視線。 電視機又應怎麼處置?專家認為應將之隱藏起 來。電視是大部分家庭必備的娛樂設備,但亦會阻礙

A solid living room, our experts unanimously agree, is comprised of three key elements: a good sofa, a coffee table, and well-considered lighting. “The sofa is the centrepiece of any living room – it’s where you relax, entertain, connect with people,” says Timothy Oulton. “If you invest in the right sofa, then everything else in the room can be built from there.” Get a sofa that’s comfortable, advises Kenny, and that will last for years to come. Coffee tables, meanwhile, anchor a living room, apart from creating surface space for collectibles as well as holding mugs of coffee (or glasses of wine). Statement pieces in metal, brass, or marble are great contrasts against the neutral tones of the walls and flooring, says Sophie. Timothy also suggests trunks, which helpfully double as storage. Finally, thoroughly consider lighting – from the way natural light changes throughout the day, to the mood you want to evoke with artificial light. Consider a key pendant light and complement it with ambient lighting through table and floor lamps, suggests Sophie, while “for a small space, I would recommend wall lights instead of table lamps to free up room.” Peggy recommends Sonder Living for their brass and black light fixtures, while Timothy recommends their Selenite pendant made of crystals – a mood setter and showstopper in one.

What about the television? In our experts’ words: conceal them. While an entertainment essential in any family home, TVs distract from efforts to connect. Both Peggy and Sophie resort to bespoke cabinetry to hide them away, simultaneously displaying other personal belongings such as books and photo frames. Should you insist on having the TV in plain view, however, “The Frame from Samsung – which looks like a framed art piece – is a good option,” says Peggy. The ways in which hidden tech benefits today’s Hong Kong home, however, can be found in smart features. “Smart home technology has allowed us to create more minimalistic spaces by reducing physical clutter,” says Kenny, citing fewer controls for curtains and lights, for example. “Voice control allows the living room to feel more responsive to the user, while circadian lighting – changing colour temperatures according to the hours of the day – allows for our design to be more sensitive to users’ well-being.” Furnishing one’s living room need not be rocket science, although it does require you to take stock of available space. As Sophie puts it: “It’s all about being clever with the space you do have.” UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT

Allow a few accent pieces to take centre stage, like a statement sofa, foliage, Indigo Living’s Zion coffee table (top right) or this standing speaker from Bang & Olufsen. 悅目焦點 讓重點裝飾成為空間 焦點,如設計矚目的 梳化、花卉和Indio Living的 Zion咖啡檯(右上角)和Bang & Olufsen的座地喇叭。

人們互動交流。Peggy和Sophie會利用櫃子把電視隱藏,同時展放書籍、相架和 植物等個人珍藏。如你不想把電視收起,Peggy提議:「Samsung的The Frame 是不錯選擇,有如一件給裱起來的藝術品。」 隱藏式科技為現今生活帶來便利,在很多智能產品中可見一斑。「智能家居科 技讓我們減少雜物,打造簡潔空間。」Kenny指出,現時窗簾和燈光的控裝器已大 大減少:「聲控設計令客廳猶如懂得回應用家,而全天候照明則會因應一日不同時 段改變光線顏色和溫度,貼心照顧用家的身心健康。」 裝飾客廳不需要高深學問,不過你要考慮到家中有多少可用空間,哪些傢具 和家品應作訂造或嵌入,還有你想營造怎樣的格調。善用先進科技,同時確保客 廳帶有自然和個人元素。正如Sophie所言:「重點是要聰明運用你擁有的空間。」

• Develop a personalised story and don’t follow generic styles – they never result in a space that feels natural and comfortable to end users. • Flexibility and clever bespoke joinery and furniture greatly help with storage solutions and the functionality of a limited space. • 建立你的個人格調,別跟隨普遍常用的風 格;這不能令用家真正感到自在和舒適。

• Avoid clutter and leave spaces empty to get the feeling of a larger, open space, and allow light to circulate better. • Incorporate multiple points of light – a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and down lights. Lighting fixtures are essential to adding character to a space. • 避免擺放太多物品,盡量清空地方以營造開 揚感,又可讓光線照遍室內。 • 設置多個光源點,由地燈、檯燈和下射式燈 具組成。燈飾是締造空間個性的必須品。

• Trends change very quickly and you don’t want to be stuck with things that feel dated a few years later. Draw on your love for selected objects, antiques or art; only choose things that you love and inspire good memories. • It doesn’t always have to be a financial investment. Instead, think of your space as a time investment – whether that’s looking to auctions for the perfect mid-century armchair or cabinet, or commissioning a local artist to weave a basket to add character to a space.

• 潮流轉變極快,你也不會希望在家擺放容易 過時的設計吧?我建議選擇你喜愛的家品、 古董或藝術品,記得挑選能喚起美好回憶的 心愛東西。 • 不一定從金錢投資的角度出發,反而應視你 的客廳為一種時間投資。無論是從拍賣會購 入的中世紀扶手椅或櫃子,還是委託本地藝 家創作一個織籃,也能為空間注入特色。

SCENE STEALING Let your personality dictate the design of the dining room, and don’t be afraid to embrace a little drama 讓你的個人特色豐富飯廳格調, 不妨大膽加入驚喜元素

If there is one area in the home that invites a touch of drama, it is the dining room. The stage upon which some of our most special moments play out, it is a space in which friends and families come together to share two of life’s great luxuries: food and time. And because it performs such a prominent part in the home, its interiors should be lavished with love and attention. Flexibility is also essential in the dining room, especially In Hong Kong, where the table might moonlight as somewhere for children to complete homework assignments, or even take an after dinner role as a bar or games table. No matter, what is most important is understanding how the space reflects your needs – and your style – and decorating accordingly. 如要在家找個地方來營造驚喜效果,飯廳絕屬不二之選。這裡滿載溫馨難忘的生 活回憶,家人好友常聚於此,共享人生最重要的兩種奢侈品:美食和時間。所以,為如 此重要的空間進行裝修時,必須由愛和細節出發。 飯廳亦需具備靈活性,特別是香港的居所,例如餐桌會同時用作孩子做功課的書 桌,又會在飯後化身吧台或遊戲桌。無論如何,最重要是先了解這空間能怎樣迎合你的 需要,並反映你的風格,然後再進行相應的裝修。

1. INSPIRATION: EXPRESS YOURSELF Don’t be afraid to apply colour or pattern in the dining room – as a well-loved and well-used space it is primed to express your personality – and statement wallcoverings or a feature wall are an excellent way of doing so. Choose a palette and let it permeate, picking up accent hues in accessories like napkins or a runner and even on upholstery. However you choose to express yourself, have fun with it, visitors will enjoy the space as much as you do – and you will never have a dull moment at a dinner party. 別害怕運用色彩和圖案,這是個充滿愛和實用的空間,理應展示你的個性,矚目 牆飾和特色牆也是理想選擇。先選定一個色彩主題,然後利用餐巾、桌旗或襯墊等來 突出色調。不管你選擇哪種形式來展現個性,只需享受其中,到訪的客人亦會覺得賓 至如歸,沒悶場的晚餐派對唾手可得!

• Tailor-fitted furniture does wonders to achieve your ideal mood and aesthetic in mind. • Pair a muted palette with striking, structural furnishings for a space that’s elegant yet full of personality. • 特製傢具能活現你心目中的理想格調和美學。 • 霧面色系與造型矚目的傢具裝飾,能為空間注滿優雅氣質 和鮮明個性。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES “Firstly there should be a clear design for your dining room,” says Johnny Wong, co-founder of boutique Hong Kong design studio FAK3. “Selecting the right colour is part of a whole list of considerations.” Darker walls and furnishings create a moody ambience, while lighter colours are more inviting. “In general, darker coloured furniture looks great against lighter tones as they allow the furniture to really pop,” Johnny adds. YC Chen, founder and creative director of Hong Kong-based interior design brand hoo, also advises starting from a neutral base. “I usually choose neutral colours like off-white, grey and wood tones,” he says, before adding, “and maybe a feature colour in dark green and blue.” Johnny suggests choosing one colour and carrying it throughout the room, but in different shades “depending on what mood you want to create”. Deep saturated blues work especially well in dining rooms with a lot of diffused lighting, while terracottas and muted pink hues continue to dominate. 「首先,你要有清晰的設計方向。」香港設計工作室FAK3創辦人之一Johnny Wong 表示:「其中一個重要的考慮因素就是要選擇正確色彩。」深色牆壁和傢具能營造沉穩氣 氛,淺色主題則帶有歡悅溫馨的感覺。「一般來說,淺色背景能令深色傢具突圍而出。」 香港室內設計公司hoo的創辦人兼創意總監YC Chen亦建議由中性色彩著手:「我 通常會選擇刷白、灰和木系等中性色調,或用上深綠和藍作主色。」 Johnny建議先選好一種色彩,再運用到飯廳各處,但要根據你想營造的格調來使 用該顏色的深淺調。飯廳特別適合深藍配漫射照明光線,而赤褐和淡粉紅仍是目前的 主流選擇。

“One of the most interesting materials we have been using in our projects is customised wallpaper,” explains Johnny. “We develop a piece of art and transform it into a wallpaper to provide a highly personalised space,” he continues. Florals and Chinoiserie designs are enjoying a moment in the spotlight and make a stylish statement, often acting as an artwork in their own right. And as with other areas of the home, contrasting fabrics and textures are key to add richness and depth to the dining space. Natural fibres pair beautifully, like linen with a thick, luxurious silk in complementary tones.

3. FIXTURES AND FURNISHINGS Naturally, the dining table and chairs are the main players in this space. Both YC and Johnny advise selecting these first and then building the space around them. In smaller spaces, curves can give the impression of being inside a much larger area, drawing the eye to their sinuous silhouettes and away from the rigid lines and corners of the room. For this reason, circular dining tables work particularly well, while also being practical. “One of the key trends I have noticed in dining room design is bespoke furniture,” says Johnny. “This allows you to tailor the experience, from the table and the chairs to the lighting and the accessories.” Mismatched chairs – while maybe not to everyone’s taste – make a stylish statement, while at the same time allowing you to assert your identity in a room that welcomes it. The look is best achieved by sticking to a singular colour or selecting seats with similar silhouettes, or, for a low-impact approach, try changing up just those chairs at the head of the table. Regardless of whether the set is identical or not, YC suggests opting for cane or rattan furniture, unless opulence is your aesthetic, in which case velvet works beautifully. Illuminations are equally important, especially when it comes to creating the appropriate mood for the dining space. Ensure adequate light sources that offer 餐桌和餐椅當然是飯廳主角。YC和Johnny也建議先 選好餐桌椅,再就著所選款式裝飾飯廳。在小空間內, 曲線有助提升空間感,讓視線停留在蜿蜒的線條上,避 開飯廳內的筆直線條和角落位置。圓飯桌就是理想而實 用的方案。Johnny表示:「其中一個飯廳設計潮流就是 訂造傢具,讓你主導自己的用餐體驗,由桌椅、燈光到 配件也盡在掌握。」 絕非人人也能接受的撞款椅子,格調時尚,又能 展現個人特色。最佳處理方法是只選用單一色調,或挑 選形狀相近的椅子,如想低調點,可以只更換餐桌「主 席位」的椅子,其他則保留相同款式。不論你的選擇如 何,YC建議你可考慮藤製產品;如你偏愛富麗堂皇的格 調,絲絨傢具也是不俗之選。

both direct and indirect diffusion. If the table performs a multipurpose role, you will need to make sure that there is enough illumination for certain tasks, such as homework, and that the light can be lowered or alternative options are available for dinner parties or romantic evenings in. Dimmer switches are a most welcome addition in this instance. And as the stage is already set for drama, why not up the production levels with a scene stealing pendant light?

• Make sure you pick the dining table and chairs first, then match the lamps to the furniture. It is always easier to be more flexible with the lighting. • Artwork is an important addition to the dining room. If you have a low cabinet, place photo frames and decorations on it in different shapes and sizes. • 記得先選好餐桌椅,後加燈具和傢具。燈飾 的靈活度很高,最易配搭。 • 藝術品是重要的裝飾元素。如飯廳內放有矮 櫃,可在其上放置數個不同大小和形狀的相 架及擺設。

“ARTWORK IS ALWAYS AN IMPORTANT ADDITION TO THE DINING ROOM”

• Lighting above the dining table adds extra wow-factor to the space. It is also functional, illuminating the table top to visually highlight the food or a special set of cutlery. • Sometimes finding a piece of furniture that is the right size or made from the right materials can be difficult. This is why I recommend customisation. • 餐桌上方的燈飾能為空間帶來驚喜,而且兼 具功能性,突出桌上的美食和漂亮餐具。 • 有時候,即使你走遍天涯海角,也可能找不 到一件尺寸或物料也合心意的傢具,所以我 非常鼓勵大家選擇訂造設計。

NOURISHING STYLE A space where form meets function and creativity flows, the kitchen encourages bold interior decisions and designs 廚房結合外形和功能,亦是發揮創意的好地方, 不妨放膽選用奪目的設計元素

A place of creativity and spirit, the kitchen is among the most important areas of the home. For too long seen as a purely functional space and sealed off from public view, delineations between cooking and dining areas are being broken down as the act of making a meal to share with friends and family is elevated. Founder of Hong Kong-based design studio Parti Limited, Kelvin Kong, explains: “The kitchen has always been an integral part of the home, especially for Chinese families.” He notes that, as the place where food is prepared, it naturally becomes an extension of social gatherings, and current trends reflect this concept. “One can get a glimpse of the intimate dynamics of a Chinese family simply by looking at the kitchen and dining area of the home,” says Kelvin, and the same is true of any family, regardless of their provenance. Ellie Bradley, owner and creative director of Hong Kong-based interior design studio Atelier Lane summarises the kitchen’s significance perfectly: “The kitchen is where meals are created – it fuels our bodies, minds and souls.” 廚房是家居重地,也是讓創意和活力爆發的空間。傳統上,它一直被視作單純作烹 調之用的封閉空間,但近年亦出現了不少破格設計,下廚區和用餐區的分隔早被打破, 為家人好友炮製美食已成高格調的賞心樂事。 香港設計工作室Parti Limited的創辦人Kelvin Kong解釋:「廚房一直是家居的核 心,對中國家庭來說尤其重要。」這裡是人們準備飯菜的地方,慢慢變成相聚點,現 時的潮流正反映此趨向。Kelvin表示:「你只需看看中國家庭的廚房和飯廳陳設,便能 大概得知這家人的關係如何。」來自不同國家的家庭也同樣如此。 本港另一設計公司Atelier Lane的擁有人兼創意總監Ellie Bradley總結現今廚房對家 居的重要性:「廚房是製作食物的地方,為我們的身、心、靈提供糧食。」

1. INSPIRATION: BREAKING BARRIERS The kitchen should not be thought of as a separate space – neither physically nor figuratively – but rather as a place in which lives are lived, much as they are throughout the home. As open-plan becomes de rigeur, so too do design elements permeate each connected area. This means that materials more commonly associated with dining or living rooms, like wood, metal and glass, find a natural home in the kitchen, visually uniting the place where food is prepared with that in which it is enjoyed. 無論是實體還是象徵意義上,也不要把廚房視作獨立區域。反之,這兒應是生活空 間。開放式設計愈來愈普遍,設計元素逐漸滲入每個相連的區域,很多客飯廳常用的物 料也可見廚房設計中,例如木材、金屬和玻璃。

• Utilise every corner for storage and consider deep cabinets to avoid cluttering the kitchen counters. • When it comes to flooring, opt for slip-resistance and long-lasting surfaces such as natural stone tiles. • 善用每個角落,裝置深陷的儲物櫃設計,打造井然有序 的工作台面。 • 選購防滑和耐用的地板面材,如天然石材。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES Colour is an excellent ingredient in any kitchen, and because it is such a dynamic space, it allows you to be more playful with pigments than you might be elsewhere. As with cooking, it is an area that encourages, and rewards, creativity. “Don’t be afraid to work with colour, especially on your kitchen cabinets,” says Ellie. “Colours trending at the moment include mid to deep greys, blue tones such as navy and shades of green from forest through to sage and peppermint,” she says, adding, “This is a great way to inject personality into your kitchen and really create the perfect place to cook.” Hong Kong-based interior designer, stylist and curator Aviva Duncan agrees: “I love burnt orange, rust and greens in a kitchen as these have a direct reference to nature.” As with every area of the home, balance is key in the kitchen. “Dark paint colours are becoming more popular because they help hide dust and imperfections,” says Alain Wong, founder and design director of Hong Kong interior design company Comodo Interior & Furniture Design. “However, to create a spaciousness in the kitchen area, balancing the dark and light colors is very important as well,” he adds. 色彩是廚房最好的設計材料,在這個動感滿滿的空間內,不妨運用未能在其他 房間派上用場的色系,自由發揮創意。「用色方面可大膽一點,特別是廚櫃。」Ellie 說:「目前流行的色調包括中至深度的灰色、深藍色系,還有深綠、草綠和薄荷綠等 的綠色系。」她補充:「為廚房注入個人特色是很好的做法,打造最適合你的理想下 廚空間。」

The materials employed in the kitchen will perhaps have to work harder than in any other area of the home, so choose them wisely. “Embrace a wide palette of materials,” says Australian interior designer Greg Natale. “Bring warmth with metals, timber and glass. The coming together of all these creates a more dynamic interior and eschews the cookie-cutter look,” he adds. Both Ellie and Alain mention engineered stone for benchtops and splashbacks, which comes in a variety of colours and finishes, is solid and durable and highly resistant to heat and scratches. Solid wood is more expensive and harder to maintain, but it does have a timeless appeal and, if properly cared for, can age beautifully. 香港室內設計師及造型師Aviva Duncan也表示:「我喜歡在廚房 加入燃燈色、色和綠色,這些跟大自然也有著直接關係。」跟居所 其他房間的裝潢一樣,平衡就是關鍵。「愈來愈多人喜愛選用深色調, 能把塵埃和小瑕疵都隱藏起來。」香港室內設計公司Comodo Interior & Furniture Design的創辦人兼設計總監Alain Wong解釋:「不過,要為廚 房營造空間感,便需要好好平衡廚房內的深淺用色。」 廚房的物料應比居所其他地方的更為堅固耐用,選擇時要份外留 神。「多運用幾種物料。」澳洲室內設計師Greg Natale指:「金屬、 木材和玻璃能營造溫暖感。各種物料能交織出活力十足的環境,避免 千篇一律的沉悶格調。」 Ellie和Alain亦深表認同,工作面和防濺擋板可選用堅固、耐熱和 防刮花的人造石,備有多種色彩和面飾可選。實木較昂貴和需花心機保 養,卻有著永恆的優美感,只要細心打理,便能漂亮地變舊。

3. FIXTURES AND FURNISHINGS “When it comes to designing and decorating kitchens, the first thing I do with my clients is really unpack how they live in their homes and what role the kitchen plays in that,” says Greg. “Some casually entertain in the kitchen, for others it is a family hub and much of the morning and evening is spent in this area – before we design we really invest in understanding how it is used and that helps us avoid applying a one-size-fits-all approach to the design solution,” he says. That said, there is a prevailing tendency towards open kitchens. “That means we are designing island benches and work areas to look more like beautiful pieces of furniture rather than large generic kitchen islands,” Greg explains. He advises spending time considering the door and drawer pulls and handles, which will help elevate these functional pieces to aesthetic new heights. 「設計和裝飾廚房前,我第一件要做的事就是了解客人們在家的生活方 式,以及廚房在其居所內的用途。」Greg說:「有些人會在這裡輕鬆用餐,有 些則視之為與家人共聚的地方,每天早晚也會用到。我們真的會花時間深入了 解,避開千遍一律的設計方案。」 選擇開放式廚房的人士日漸增多。「這代表我們要把中島廚櫃面和工作台 設計成款式更漂亮的傢具,而不再是平平無奇的笨重款式。」Greg亦建議在櫃 門和抽屜手抽上多花心思,能為實用的廚房設備提升格調和美感。

“Always go for furnishings and accessories that best fit your style of cooking and usage,” advises Kelvin. “Every inch of space counts in Hong Kong, so I would choose accessories that maximizes the usable area for food preparation and storage.” Aviva agrees that appliances are important. “Kitchen equipment is a good investment,” she says, adding, “good quality appliances last for years, so go for the big brands.” Lighting is also an important element of kitchen design. “A good kitchen should have sufficient direct lights for cooking and perhaps some indirect lighting to bring out the materials in the interior design,” says Kelvin. Ellie takes it one step further, incorporating the illuminations into the aesthetic outlook of the area. “Adding a feature pendant light in addition to task lighting adds style to your kitchen,” she explains. “It’s like adding jewellery to our outfit. It adds a bit of sparkle and interest to what is otherwise a functional area of the home.” “And buy beautiful pots and pans which become part of your look and don’t need to be hidden away,” says Aviva. “I favour Le Creuset in a contrasting colour to your decor.” Kelvin指:「所選傢具和配件應配合你的煮食方式和習 慣。香港寸金尺土,我會選用可以用盡製作和儲存食物空間的 配件。」Aviva則表示電器是很重要的工具,並表示:「廚房 電器是值得花費的投資,而優質家電更能用上多年,所以應 選用大牌子產品。」 照明是廚房另一重要設計元素。「優質廚房應配合充 足的直接照明,方便下廚,也可加入間接照明,突出空間中 的物料。」Kelvin說。Ellie更進一步,加裝一些能美化空間 的燈飾。「在工作照明的基本裝置上加添一盞特色吊燈,能 令廚房更具風格。」她續說:「就像為衣裳配襯首飾,為這 個實用空間注入活力和趣味。」 「選購漂亮的鍋具,使之成為裝飾的一部分,不用特意 收起。」Aviva說:「我喜歡Le Creuset的設計,為廚房加入 悅目的對比色彩。」

• When designing a kitchen, make sure you have the ‘triangle of efficiency in place’: your journey from the countertop workspace to the stove and to the sink should not be too big or have obstacles in the way. • Use all the space available in the kitchen for storage by extending cabinets all the way to the ceiling and embracing multi-functional storage.

• 設計廚房時,要確保「工作三角區」安排得 宜:由工作台、爐頭到鋅盤之間的距離不能 相隔太遠,中間也不要放置雜物。 • 廚櫃應伸延至天花板,並加入多功能儲物裝 置,盡量善用每吋儲物空間。

BATHROOM BRILLIANCE Sustainability and technology are the trends of today, but when it comes to the bathroom, it’s all about making it your own 可持續發展和科技是當今大趨勢,但在浴室這一環, 展現個性才是王道

Bathrooms are having a moment. Increasingly less about functionality, not only have they become places to luxuriate and to escape from the craziness of daily life, but places that offer ample opportunity to showcase your sense of style. “Every home should have areas where you can escape and retreat from the rest of the world, and an indulgent bathroom can be this calming space,” says interior designer Timothy Corrigan. “There are so many beautiful options for stone, tile and fixtures that there is no reason that the bathroom should not be just as special as the most public room in your home.” Cue statement-making tiles, textures and accessories, design-led fixtures and unexpected hues to brighten up your bathroom and make your washroom a worthy place to escape to, complete, of course, with the most modern of conveniences. 浴室設計正熱火朝天,現世代的用家愈來愈注重空間的功能性,並視之為享受私 人時光和逃離現實紛擾的避難所,更是個可處處展現個人風格的地方。 室內設計師Timothy Corrigan說:「每個家居都應該有個可讓你與世隔絕的地方, 而能夠令人陶醉其中的浴室正是這樣的一個清靜地。石材、瓷磚和裝置的選擇如此繁多, 若浴室不能如家中其他公共空間那樣獨一無二,就實在說不過去。」指的是以能突顯個 性的瓷磚、材質和配件、以設計為先的設備和意想不到的色彩來增添生氣,把浴室打造 成你的避難所,但當然,配備的元素當然要是現代嶄新設備。

1. INSPIRATION: MAKING A STATEMENT / FUN & FUNCTIONAL ALL THAT GLITTERS

A splash of gold never fails to elevate rustic interiors. Consider the Hidden floor mirror from Porus Studio or AYTM’s Frustum marble candle holder. 耀眼焦點 金調子能有效提升田園風 尚:Porus Studio的Hidden座地 鏡和AYTM的Frustum大理石 蠟燭台也是理想選擇。

Functionality lies at the heart of every bathroom, but there’s plenty of room for fun, too. Art, statement tiles or a standout mirror add personality. Even wild wallpaper works well, particularly in a powder room where steamy showers and hot baths don’t up the humidity. “Your bathroom is a functional spot in your home, but that doesn’t mean it can’t make a design statement,” says Hong Kong-based designer Anji Connell of ACID+. She’s not the only one. Bathrooms have the potential to make a big impression and increasingly we’re seeing the use of deep, dark tones, hardware to evoke an industrial, brutalist edge, and the use of asymmetry for impact. 雖說功能是浴室核心,但還是不缺增添趣味的空間,藝術品、個性化瓷磚和破格鏡 子都能帶入個人風格。風格大膽的牆紙亦能營造不俗效果,特別是不受霧氣影響濕度的 化妝室更適合不過。駐香港ACID+設計師Anji Connell說:「浴室是實用天地,但並不 代表不可作為設計的宣示空間。」她絕非個別例子。浴室極具讓人留下深刻印象的潛質, 愈來愈多人也愛選用深沉色調,營造工業粗獷味,以及巧用不對稱概念製造獨特效果。

tips 86 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• Functionality and safety are paramount in the bathroom, much more so than in any other space. • Lack of attention to detail is easily noticed in a bathroom so design should be immaculate. • 浴室講求功能與安全,相對家中其他空間更是如此。 • 設計浴室時,不注重細節的話,很容易被人察覺, 故要加倍細心。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES Colours and textures can be the best way to make an artistic statement in a bathroom, whatever its size. “Ambience can be enriched with different types of materials, such as hand-painted wallpaper for powder rooms, different textured marbles to create drama for the bath and shower areas, and tiles blended with mosaics and glass panels,” says Denise Lau, CEO of interior furnishing platform colourliving. “Innovations in tiles and composite stones are allowing for more beautiful options than ever before,” adds Timothy who highlights materials such as mother or pearl and precious stones now offering opportunities for luxurious wet-area options, more akin to a spa that a personal bathroom. Interestingly, it’s deeper shades that are in vogue. And these are increasingly matched with similarly dark fixtures or contrasting bright and shiny options, the latter the choice for Denise who says, “It’s a trend to match marbles of a dark palette with special tap finishes like dark bronze, matt copper or antique gold.” Dornbracht and Gessi both have some striking examples in their current ranges. There’s also lighting to consider. Ed Ng of AB Concept suggests having options. “A bathroom should have two colour temperatures: warm for the long, hot baths, and cold for clarity when you are cutting nails or applying make-up.” 不論浴室大小,色彩和材質也是展現藝術個性的最佳媒 介。室內家品平台colourliving總裁Denise Lau說:「我們可 以利用不同種類的材質豐富氛圍,例如化妝室就可用手繪牆 紙,再利用質感不同的雲石增強淋浴或浸浴間的氣派,還有 混搭馬賽克和玻璃飾片的瓷磚等。」

Timothy補充:「瓷磚和複合石材推陳出新,給予更多 漂亮選擇。」他特別提到珍珠母等珍貴石材,讓你的浴室奢 華得像個水療室。 幸好,當下是沉色當道的時代,可配搭的深色設備和 對比強烈的鮮豔或光面款式亦愈來愈多。Denise個人傾向後 者:「現時流行沉色調雲石配深銅、啞銅或古董金色的水龍 頭。」Dornbracht和Gessi的品牌系列中皆有不少突出設計。 要考慮的還有燈光。AB Concept的Ed Ng這樣建議: 「一間浴室應該要有兩種色溫,慢慢享受浸浴時最適宜用暖 色,需要剪指甲或化妝時則適宜用上冷色。」


BATHROOM | DECORATION

“It’s important to keep a similar look to all of the fittings in the bathroom, but you should be able to customise them to fit your unique style and taste,” says Timothy who has created a collection for THG Paris that can be totally customised according to personal taste. Ed agrees that keeping things consistent is key. “Bathrooms are relatively small spaces and fittings and fixtures are very prominent, so mixing different styles is hardly ever an option.” Whatever the size of the space, storage is always essential. Clutter never says comfort and calm, as a bathroom should, so see how you can cleverly incorporate additional cupboards or, as Ed suggests, make use of ceiling space. A desire to be sustainable is also having increasing influence on the choice of fixtures and furnishings. “We are seeing fewer requests for rain shower heads and multiple body sprays,” says Timothy, attributing the change to a greater consciousness of water usage. Along with this trend is an increased interest in technology with smart toilets in particular growing in popularity. “Technology must pamper and enhance both comfort and the bathroom experience,” Ed says. The smart mirror is certainly one tech addition he can get on board with. “I expect to see mirrors with features such as augmented reality and an Internet connection.” For Denise, a smart mirror is already an integral part of her bathroom setup. “I start the day with an awakening shower with waterfall and pulsating massage while catching up on global news through the media function of my illuminated mirror cabinet,” she says of her bathroom that is “a multi-purpose area of my home.” Ed adds, “I like to listen to music when I take a bath.” Couple all that with the most basic essentials, such as candles and scents, for an all-round pampering. 為THG Paris創作訂造系列的Timothy說:「浴室設備應風格如 一,符合個人品味。」Ed同意風格一致屬關鍵。「浴室是個相對較小 的空間,任何元素也非常顯眼,混合不同風格從不是一個好選擇。」 不論浴室空間大小,儲物必不可少。浴室是個舒適平靜的地方, 不應雜亂無章。你需要巧妙地加設櫥櫃,或如Ed建議善用天花板位 置。Timothy說:「不論家中貯物空間有多少,我們總可利用浴室貯 物。」他強烈推薦閉合式化妝櫃,實用又簡潔。 人們無不想過可持續生活,影響著對浴室設備和配件的選 擇。Timothy指:「客人愈來愈少會要求加裝頂噴花灑和多角度沖身 花灑。」他認為這種改變源於人們現更注重節約用水。 「人們對科技的興趣日濃,智慧型座廁更風行全球。」話雖如 此,Ed指出如你不懂使用這些功能,根本不需要一個具備過百種功能 的座廁。「科技必須令你的浴室體驗更舒適才對。」 智能鏡子必定是他的浴室科技產品之一。Ed說:「我預計愈來 愈多人使用配備擴增實境和上網功能的鏡子。」 對Denise而言,智能鏡子早已成浴室設備。她說:「我的每天始 於一面舒暢地淋浴和享受瀑布及脈衝式按摩,一面透過照明鏡櫃的媒 體功能收看環球新聞。」如時間更充裕,她便會在堪稱「家居多用途 區」的浴室聽音樂、看電影、看書和打遊戲機。Ed亦非常重視音響系 統的質素:「我喜歡在沐浴時聽音樂。」參考以上專家意見,再添置 如蠟燭和香薰等基本物品,你便可在私密空間盡情享受。 88 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• 浴室是個讓你心境平靜和放鬆的地方。 處身其中,你也是赤裸脆弱的,並置身 最自然狀態,舒適至為重要。 • 可持續家居的關鍵不在於設計,而是精 明運用材料,選用環保物料和低碳足跡 的生產方式。木材和石材正重新興起, 還有以回收塑膠製造的物料。 • 即使面積細小,也應清楚區分乾濕區。 Photography by Reylia Slaby

• The bathroom should make you feel at ease with yourself, and pampered. You are naked here, vulnerable, in your natural state. Comfort is of the essence. • Sustainability isn’t so much about design as about clever use of materials. Opt for ecofriendly materials and production methods with a lower carbon footprint – timber and stone are making a comeback, but also materials made, for example, from recycled plastic. • There should be a clear demarcation between wet and dry areas, even in small bathrooms.

“SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS ART ELEVATES THE BATHROOM TO A PLACE OF BEAUTY”

96 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• Something as simple as hanging a painting or other form of real art elevates the bathroom from the utilitarian to a place of indulgence and beauty. • If space allows, an elegant freestanding tub conveys the feeling that relaxation is taken seriously. • Beautiful plumbing fixtures can add another level of detail. • Ample lighting is an essential consideration. Direct lighting is important at face level for make-up and shaving; overhead lighting alone casts shadows on your face. • 只需掛起一幅油畫或其他種類的藝術品,簡 單一個動作便能把浴室從實用空間昇華至充 滿美感和盡情享受的地方。 • 如空間許可,不妨選用優雅的獨立式浴缸, 予人極為放鬆的感覺。 • 漂亮的管道配件令細節更顯細膩。 • 充足光線亦是重要一環。直接光源在化妝和 刮鬍子時很重要,應置於臉部的水平,頂置 照明則在臉上投下陰影。

STYLISH SANCTUARY Escape the digital trappings of modern life in a beautifully conceived bedroom, where personality and peace of mind unite 滿載個性和寧靜氣氛的漂亮睡房能帶你逃離 充斥著電子產物的鬧市生活

In our constantly connected world, the bedroom provides a rare place of detachment from the digital world, a space in which we can unwind and escape from the stresses associated with modern life. This is reflected not only in design trends but increasingly in the way we organise our interiors, the latter largely inspired by the popularity of Marie Kondo’s KonMari method, which has encouraged us to take a more mindful approach towards the way we experience the space we inhabit and give greater consideration to the items that also occupy our homes. Ultimately, as one of the most intimate areas of the home, our bedrooms should be both pleasurable to be in and instill a peace of mind. As Frank Leung, founder and principal director of one of Hong Kong’s leading studios via. architecture, says, “A home is a sanctuary from the tense urban life – and the bedroom is the ultimate sanctum for rest and rejuvenation.” 身處這個電子數碼時代,睡房已成了一個罕有地能不受電子產品干擾的私人空間, 讓我們放鬆身心靈,把一切來自現代生活的壓力都拒諸門外。如此轉變不但見於現今 的設計潮流,連我們整理家居的方式亦大受影響,後者主要受到日本收納達人近藤麻 理惠構思的KonMari法則所啟發,鼓勵人們細心感受一下自己的居所,重新整理各樣佔 據生活空間的物件。 睡房作為家中最私密的空間,裝潢應能令人感愉悅享受,同時洋溢寧靜舒適的 格調。香港傑出建築工作室 via. architecture的創辦人兼首席總監Frank Leung指出: 「家園是逃離緊張都市生活的寫意天地,睡房更加是休息和充電的終極舒適區域。」

1. INSPIRATION: STYLISH STORAGE A foundational element of any bedroom is storage; how and where we put everything from clothes to coveted curios plays an integral part in interior design, especially in a city like Hong Kong where space is in limited supply. Invisible or integrated storage is favoured for essentials like bed linen, but at the same time there is a move towards open wardrobes, which are not only practical but can act as a stylish statement in their own right, adding interest and personality to the bedroom. 睡房的基本元素是儲物,而睡房裝潢的其中一個重點就是如何把衣物和個人珍藏等 安置妥當。很多物件也適合安放於隱藏式的收納空間中,例如寢具,而現時流行的開放 式衣櫃設計,不但實用,更可作為時尚擺設,為睡房增添趣味和個人特色。 HEAD SPACE

Lush bedframes and carefully crafted furniture lend to a dramatic ambience in the bedroom; think TREE’s teak graphic sideboard. 最佳位置 奢華床框、製作精細的傢具 為睡房劃上矚目一筆。TREE 的柚木邊櫃也是理想選擇。

tips

• Let your outfits do the talking with open wardrobes that are elegant, smart and give you plenty of room for creativity. • Opt for calming, restful and fresh shades like soft blue, lilac, dove grey, sage green, lavender and even white to create a tranquil atmosphere. • 開放式衣櫃讓你盡情發揮創造力,充滿優雅魅力。 • 挑選淺藍、淡紫和白色等純淨色彩,營造窩心氛圍。


2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES

Photography by Reto Guntli | Living Inside

“A bedroom should feel sublime and relaxing,” says iconic American designer Kelly Wearstler. “Of all the rooms in a home, it needs to be calming and restorative. Neutrals from decadent creams to cool dove grays evoke a mood of sexy sophistication that is simple yet iconic.” “I always recommend taking a palette of neutrals loaded with texture, and embracing some seasonal hues in the form of cushions, throw, blankets or an accent chair that you can refresh when they feel tired,” says Amrita Khanna, founder and principal designer of boutique Hong Kong interior design company Zip Code 888. “For bedrooms which do not have a lot of natural light, chartreuse, ginger, ochre or ‘Amber Coast’ from Dulux will lend warming, inspiring and uplifting vibes,” says Frank, adding that for those wishing to add a playful tone, vibrant shades like yellow, orange and raspberry can be introduced through multicoloured wallpaper or bedlinen. Amrita agrees. “For that splash of colour I am loving terracotta or sun-kissed hues like burnt orange, even a splash of primrose yellow, to liven up a bedroom,” she says. “Mix textures rather than patterns,” advises award-winning British interior designer Katharine Pooley. “Cashmere bed throws and silk and linen cushions are wonderfully tactile and inviting textures,” she adds. “Silk comes in vibrant hues because its fibres absorb the intensity of dyes very well,” Frank says, adding that it looks particularly impressive when used in duvet covers, pillowcases or rugs. “Trims, fringes and tassels on curtains, cushions, chairs and bedding are making a comeback,” adds Amrita. “To add a spot of glamour, accessorise with matt ceramics or metals with patina in organic shapes,” she says.

REST ASSURED

Fun can be had with stronger hues such as red, yellow, and orange to add character to your space. 甜蜜夢鄉 紅、黃、橙讓你的空間 更顯個性,對比悅目鮮明。

「睡房應予人優美和輕鬆的感覺。」著名美國設計師 Kelly Wearstler表示:「相比起家中其他房間,這裡更需要讓你感平靜 和恢復精神。奶油色和淺灰色等中性色調散發出迷人精緻的感覺, 簡約但奪目。」 本港精緻室內設計公司Zip Code 888的創辦人兼首席設計師 Amrita Khanna說:「我常建議人們採用中性色彩組合搭配質感元 素,再加上帶有今期流行色調的墊子、毛毯,甚至是一張特色椅 子,疲累時能安坐稍作休息。」 「如果睡房欠缺自然光,可利用淡黃綠、薑黃、紅褐色或多 樂士的Amber Coast來提升房間的溫暖感和格調。」Frank續說, 如想為空間注入玩味,可挑選由黃、橙和紅莓色等奪目色調組成 的彩色牆紙或寢具。Amrita也贊同,並指鮮艷的色彩能為空間締 造有趣感覺和個性:「我特別喜愛赤褐色或陽光色系,例如橙紅 色,甚至是一抹淡黃色,為睡房添上生氣。」 「混搭質感比混搭圖案的效果更好。」英國得獎室內設計師 Katharine Pooley說:「羊絨床旗,以及絲質和亞麻布墊子也擁有 優美的觸感和質感。」 Frank解釋:「絲質的顏色大多鮮艷奪目,因其纖維的鎖色效 果非常好。」而絲質羽絨被套、枕頭套和小地毯的款式更特別漂 亮。Amrita補充:「窗簾、墊子、椅子和寢具的邊飾和流蘇設計又 再復興。想加點華美感,可放置飾有綠鏽的啞陶瓷或金屬擺設。」

BEDROOM | DECORATION

The bedroom is one of the most personal places in the home and its arrangement should reflect this. Antiques, pre-loved and sustainably sourced furnishings work exceptionally well in such a space, infusing it with a depth of design and exhibiting an elevated sense of style. “There should be a balance of size, colour, pattern and texture,” says Kelly, adding, “So much time is spent in the bedroom, it is truly one of the most important spaces to design in a home.” “Following on from the boho trend of layering in fashion, I see a revival in combining antiques of different periods, which, when expertly assembled, come together to create an interesting space that feels like it has been curated over years,” says Amrita. This is excellent news, as most interiors are the collective result of lifetimes accumulated under one roof, and a less rigid approach to design rewards those with eclectic tendencies. Frank is also an advocate of adding your own character to the mix. “Personalise your bedroom!” he says. “Everything from a tray of your favourite perfumes to fresh flowers and travel mementos are all potential styling items,” Frank explains. Lily Wong, of Hong Kongbased Lusso Design Limited, agrees, adding: “Choose a beautiful piece of artwork, arrange some family photos, add flowers or candles. Give the room a feeling of comfort and intimacy.” Lighting is imperative to creating a calm atmosphere, which in turn will help you to switch off after a long day. Direct lighting should be avoided, according to Frank, who suggests diffused illuminations and dimmer functions wherever possible. Ambient reflective lighting is ideal for the bedroom as it radiates a soft, warm glow that is cosy and inviting. “At via., we always encourage clients to follow their instincts and express their unique personalities and tastes when decorating, especially to surround themselves with art and objects that they love,” says Frank. “This is especially true when decorating a bedroom.” 睡房是家中的私密空間,佈置亦應反映如此特質。將古董、二手和可持續傢具組合,打 造意想不到的效果,即時為空間注入深度和提升整體風格。Kelly續說:「在尺寸、色彩、圖案 和質感之間應取得平衡。人們待在睡房的時間也很長,絕對值得多花心思設計。」 Amrita表示:「從時裝界的boho潮流可知,搭配不同時期的古物將成為另一個復興熱 潮,能打造出看似已完工多年的典雅裝潢,十分有趣。」大部分的睡房裝潢都是主人積年累 月修補添減而成,自由度較大的設計方式亦能造就更多元化的裝潢風格。Frank亦鼓勵在房內 加入自家特色:「心愛香水、新鮮花束和紀念品等,也是提升格調的裝飾。」駐港公司Lusso Design Limited的Lily Wong深表認同:「挑選漂亮的藝術品,放幾張家庭照,再放花卉或蠟 燭,使房間洋溢著舒適和親密的感覺。」 照明是打造寧靜氣氛的必須品,助你結束漫長一天。Frank建議避用直射照明,盡量選用分 散式照明和調光裝置。反射照明光線柔和,格調溫馨宜人。Frank說:「於via.,我們鼓勵客戶跟 隨自己的直覺,展現真我品味,把心愛的藝術品和東西都放出來。這就是裝飾睡房的要點。」 106 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

The best bed linen soothes and cools, and I love to incorporate luxurious details like coloured border, piping or monogramming. • For tranquillity, be sure to layer your lighting scheme with a mixture of low-level lighting throughout the room. • 選購寢具時不妨大手筆點,優質寢具擁有柔 滑和涼爽的優點,我最愛加入豪華細節,如 彩色滾邊、條紋花飾或字母組合圖案。 • 想營造寧靜格調,要確保房內的照明裝置加 入低水平的燈光。

• Bring in pieces that reflect your distinctive personality and lifestyle. A home should be filled with pieces that inspire. • Hierarchy and scale are so important. Too many starlets in one room creates needless drama. The goal should be to curate a cohesive dialogue while still allowing statement pieces to shine. • 在房內擺放能反映你個性和生活方式的東 西。居所應放有各式各樣具啟發性的元素。 • 層次和比例相當重要。房內如擺設太多,容 易造成不必要的浮誇感覺。重點是打造出連 貫的美感,又能讓焦點擺設突圍而出。

• Try to discipline yourself to keep your cell phone, computer, television and exercise machine out of the bedroom – you’ll love having a room dedicated to reading, sleeping and romance. • Furniture should fit the room it lives in and this is particularly true for bedroom furniture. Don’t choose a heavy, large bed and dresser for a small bedroom. If the ceiling is high, a tall headboard will help to visibly bring it down to size.

• 自我約束,把手機、電腦、電視機和運動器 材都放在睡房以外的地方。你會愛上這個集 閱讀、睡眠和浪漫風格於一身的空間。 • 傢具應與睡房面積相配合。千萬不要為小睡 房選購笨重的睡床和衣櫃;樓底高的房間可 選高身床頭板,拉近空間的視覺差距。

1. INSPIRATION: GET CREATIVE Not every home will have a dedicated study space, so flexibility and creativity are essential when employing a smaller spot. Choose furnishings that allow the light to stream through, but don’t be afraid to add flourish or flair, perhaps through a statement shade or a mix of metallics. Just because this is an area for activity doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it, in fact, the more you enjoy spending time in your home office, the more you will get from it, so prepare to be playful as well as productive. 大部分香港居所也沒有預留一個可用作書房的房間,進行規劃時必須發揮創意和保 留靈活性。選用能讓光線穿透的陳設,也可大膽加入奪目元素,例如引人注目的色彩或 混搭多種金屬元素。不要局限你的創意,工作地方也可充滿趣味,你愈喜歡自己的家居 辦公室,便愈能投入其中,愉快享用這個富生氣又能提升生產力的空間。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES Our physical environment has a significant impact on our psychological well-being, and this extends to the pigment of paint on the walls that surround us. Hong Kong-based interior decorator and personal stylist Lucia Tait Tolani is well aware of this, having appointed a rich blue for her home office. “I used a shade of cobalt in my study, and I've since heard that blue is an intellectual color that stimulates the mind and boosts productivity,” says Lucia. Indeed, various studies have found that blues are optimal in work environments as the primary shade promotes communication, trust and efficiency. It also has a naturally calming tone, which can open the mind to new ideas. If your occupation requires you to be detail-oriented, consider red hues as these have been shown to increase productivity, motivation and memory. “A dark wall colour like black, navy or grey instantly makes a study feel cool and moody, and rows of books look very effective against a dark backdrop,” says renowned British furniture designer Timothy Oulton. Texture has as much of a place in a home office as it does in any other room, and can be introduced through textile wall hangings and plush rugs; anything that elevates the homely aspect of the space over its role as a workstation is ideal. Wood lends an organic flavour to proceedings, while marble adds a luxe appeal and lucite allows light in. “Custom built-in bookshelves can house your library, paperwork, and mementos – painted wood works well here,” says Lucia. “I also love a set of etageres in a gold or brass tones for open book storage.” 我們的身心靈經常受到身處的環境影響,故牆色選擇至為重要。駐 香港室內裝飾師兼個人形象指導Lucia Tait Tolani深明此道,其家居辦公室 也選用精神奕奕的藍色。Lucia表示:「我在書房用上金屬藍;聽說藍色 能刺激腦部,提升工作效率。」 研究亦指出藍是最適合工作場所使用的色系,有助增強溝通、信任 和效率,更能鎮靜情緒,讓人易於接受新意念。假如你的工作需特別注 意細節,可考慮紅色,提升生產力、工作動力和記憶力。英國著名傢具 設計師Timothy Oulton指:「黑、深藍和灰色等深色牆令書房格調冷靜 沉穩,一行行排列整齊的書籍跟深色背景能組合出悅目場景。」 一如家中各空間,辦公室裝潢也不能失卻質感,掛牆織品和地毯 就是理想選擇,還有帶純樸美的木材、奢華的大理石、提升明亮度的合 成樹脂則。 Lucia續說:「訂製入牆書架展示藏書、文件和個人擺設, 著色木材也是不俗選擇。我喜愛利用金或銅色飾架用作開放式書架。」


STUDY | DECORATION

“A study is somewhere to reflect, to contemplate and to plan,” says Timothy. “It’s an intimate space and it needs to feel truly like you. Only choose pieces that you love and feel inspired by, rather than getting swept up in the latest trends,” he adds. “I believe the study should feel like part of the home and not an office,” says Lucia, who emphasises that the same amount of attention should go into this area as, say, a living or dining room – just because it is conceived to perform a specific purpose does not mean it should be treated as purely practical. “Stay away from metal filing cabinets and traditional office chairs , and find comfortable upholstered seating,” she adds. Before even considering how you would like your home office to look, it is wise to think about how you want it to work for you. Lucia agrees: “The function of the room plays a big part in the design process.” If you have the space, a separate study can benefit from a bearing marked aesthetic departure from the rest of your home. However, if you are incorporating an office into another part of the home, you might want to make the transition less discernible so that it is not distracting. “Make sure you have ample light sources,” advises Lucia. “Weather and time affect natural light supply, you want to make sure you have options that match your tasks – dimmable overhead for daytime, and a good desk lamp for reading and writing,” she adds. A sculptural essential oil diffuser is a valuable addition to any desk, its sundry scents capable of creating different moods and, in doing so, aiding productivity. Open storage works well in a study as it means that everything is visible and to hand. However, if you know you lack the time or have no desire to tidy up your office, opt for a desk with drawers that allow you to hide a multitude of sins. Alternatively, curtainfronted shelving toes the line between having everything on display and offering a way to conceal clutter. Lucia says, “A plush rug goes a long way – after all, most of us are barefoot at home.” 書房是反省、沉思和計劃的地方。Timothy說:「這私人空 間應反映個人特色。挑選心愛的傢具擺設,別盲目跟隨潮流。」 Lucia指:「書房必須予人家的感覺。」她強調投放在書房設計 上的心思應跟客廳或飯廳一樣多,雖然它具有特定用途,但絕 不應只為實用而設。「別選用金屬文件櫃和傳統辦公室桌椅, 考慮舒適的襯墊座椅,跟公司設備完全不一樣。」 構思裝潢前,先想想空間對你的作用和價值。Lucia認同: 「它的功能主導整個設計過程。」假如空間充裕,獨立書房能 讓你打造出跟居所截然不同的裝潢,以作區分。但如打算在家 中另設辦公室,那兩者的分別應愈低調愈好,以免分散注意力。 Lucia建議:「照明必須充足。天氣和時間也會影響光線, 輔助燈具屬必然:適用於日晝的可調光暗天花燈,閱讀和書寫時 用的優質燈。」擺放香薰機,營造氣氛和增強工作效率吧! 開放式儲物架讓一切一目了然,方便存取,但如你無暇經常執 拾,選用連抽屜的書桌把物件完美收妥吧。附簾子的儲物架則 帶來柔美氣質。Lucia提議:「舒適地毯不可少,畢竟,大部人 愛在家赤腳走動。」 122 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

children’s room

A SAFE HAVEN Fun, flexible, and enduring, the children’s bedroom is their fort in the home 充滿玩味、可塑性高和耐用的兒童睡房是小孩 在家中的堡壘 The bedroom is one of the first spaces a child will get to know – it’s where they’ll learn what it means to listen to mommy and daddy, discover consequences to actions, and dream up life’s many adventures. It’s a place for rest as it is for play, for learning as it is for day dreaming. Because children grow so quickly, it’s important to create a space that will evolve with their early years. “One should plan for a longer period of time,” says Jason Yung, architect and founder of Jason Caroline Design, adding that a child’s space need not look like a kindergarten. “Avoid turning the child’s room into a bright and colourful playground with padded wall panels right after you have a newborn.” Instead, create flexibility by investing in timeless pieces, and then slowly involve the children when they’re older. Amrita Khanna, founder and principal designer at Zip Code 888, says she’s “increasingly coming across teens and tweens requesting rooms they can grow into while reflecting their youth – they don’t want rooms that seem childish.” They won’t be childlike for long, after all. Until then, however, this is the room they’ll know to be home. Design it to be a fun, safe haven, and one day they’ll look back on it with fondness as well as gratitude – hopefully – for being a key part of their childhood. 睡房屬孩子最早接觸的地方之一,他們在那裡學習聽父母話,學會任何行為的後 果和想像將來的人生旅程。它是休息、玩樂、學習和做白日夢的地方。 小孩子長大得快,設計一個能在孩童期間陪伴成長的睡房至為重要。Jason Caroline Design創辦人兼建築師Jason Yung說:「設計時應計劃得長遠些。」他補充說,孩子 的睡房毋須打造成幼稚園一樣。「孩子出生後,盡量不要把他的房間變成鋪滿牆墊的 繽紛遊樂場。」 家長應選購經典而可塑性高的家品以提高靈活性,然後隨著孩子長大慢慢讓他們 參與設計過程。Zip Code 888創辦人兼首席設計師Amrita Khanna說,她遇到「愈來愈 多年青人要求自己的房間要有青春感,同時亦能在他們長大後變得成熟,即是說房間 看起來不能幼稚。」 畢竟,小孩子的幼年期終歸有限,但在他們長大前,這將會是他們視為家的地方。 把空間設計成有趣和安全的處所,希望將來一天他們會懷著欣慰和感恩,回望這個在童 年擔當要角的天地。

YOUNG AT HEART

Neutral-hued accessories, wooden finishes and monochromatic surfaces form a timeless look. Spruce it up with brighter tones such as La Chance’s Cross rug from Archetypal. 青春活力 選用中色裝飾、木元素和素色面材, 打造永恆經典的風格。偶爾混入鮮 色調,如Archetypal有售、來自La Chance的Cross地毯,注入朝氣。

1. INSPIRATION: MAGICAL WHIMSY They’re young for only so long, so don’t be afraid to opt for playful details. The trick is to be selective about which items work best with a kiddy treatment, and which are better off as timeless pieces. Parents are increasingly opting for neutral tones as base colours and then vying for colour in items that can be easily switched around, such as beddings and curtains. Consider asking yourself: what bold colours wouldn’t I mind seeing in my own bedroom? Use your own aesthetic as a kickoff point and see how this translates in the context of a child’s room. 他們終有一天會長大成人,把握機會儘管採用充滿玩味的裝飾細節吧。竅門在於區分適合 小朋友的家品和經典傢具款式。家長熱愛選用新穎中色作基礎,再物色方便更替的家品,如床單 和窗簾。問問自己:「有甚麼大膽顏色不介意用於自己房間?哪些兒童家品本已不失個性?以個 人喜好和美學作出發點,並考慮如何套用在兒童睡房上。」

tips 132 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• Consider toys you don’t have to throw out after your child outgrows them – wooden blocks, linen rugs and stylish stationery always have a place in your home. • Colour-code and label storage to help children easily find what they’re looking for. • 選購小孩長大後也不用棄掉的玩具,如積木、麻布地毯 和型格文具座等,這些設計在家中總有一席之地。 • 善用顏色編碼和標籤系統貯物,有助小孩尋找物品。

2. COLOURS AND TEXTURES The children’s room makes for a canvas for bold colour choices; yet, you don’t want to overwhelm you child. “It’s important for a child’s bedroom to be a place of quiet relaxation that doesn’t excite their senses too much,” says Amrita. Frank Leung, founder and principal of design studio via., concurs. “Colours should inspire but not over-stimulate,” he says. “After all, it’s their bedroom and they need to sleep.” Instead, strike a balance by opting for softer, more timeless shades for walls, carpeting, and furniture. “A careful use of white, a wooden floor and finish, plus black and white help neutralise the multi-coloured items in the room, such as books and toys,” says Frank. Save bright hues for pieces you can switch around, such as bedding, cushions, and wall décor. For young children with favourite cartoons, subtlety is key, suggests Max Lam, founder and creative director of Max Lam Designs. “Children grow fast and their favourite things always change,” he says. “What we would do is take partial references of the character and make them part of the design.” Soft and padded textures are practical inclusions, too. Dutch designer Marcel Wanders cites matelassé, a material that involves weaving or stitching and appears quilted or padded. “Matelassé is a wonderful material – it’s durable, easy to clean, and feels nice to the touch,” he says. Natural materials, on the other hand, lend the room more character. “I like to keep materials natural and organic, sticking to linens, textured cottons, wool, rattan and wood,” shares Amrita. “Lighter colours with a play on texture and pattern also create an interesting space.”

小孩房有如發揮創意的畫布,但也不應該讓 孩子被色彩淹沒。Amrita說:「這是小屋主放鬆的 地方,不能過份刺激他們的感官。」設計公司via. 創辦人兼首席設計師Frank Leung認同:「顏色理 應啟發而非過份刺激。這是休息睡覺的地方。」 取個平衡,選擇能抵時日洗禮的柔和用色作 牆紙、地毯和傢具。Frank說:「小心選用白色、 木質地板和飾面營造溫暖感覺;黑白色亦有助平衡 色彩豐富的家品,例如書和玩具。」鮮色適用於可 隨時替換的床單、墊子和牆飾等。 Max Lam Designs創辦人兼創意總監Max Lam 建議,如孩子有喜歡的卡通人物,可考慮較含蓄的 做法。他說:「孩子大得快,喜歡的東西也轉得 快。做法是抽取卡通人物部分特徵並融入設計。」 軟墊材質亦是實用選擇。荷蘭設計師Marcel Wanders提出皺褶皮革「Matelassé」,一種像是 加了襯芯的編織縫製物料。他說:「Matelassé是 種絕佳物料,耐用、易潔、觸感豐富。」天然物料 亦為房間注入個性。Amrita分享:「我喜歡天然和 有機物料,常選用亞麻布、質感棉布、羊毛、藤和 木材。大玩質感與圖案的淺色能營造有趣效果。」

決定孩子睡房選用甚麼傢具時需作多重考慮。就嬰兒而 言,Jason建議使用可移動的傢具和獨立式設備。「育嬰室可 用獨立式傢具,畢竟嬰兒很快長大,用不著多久便要更換新 用品。」關鍵之作包括可調校高低的床具、桌子和座椅,以 及可改裝的雙層床或閣樓床。「閣樓可謂孩子睡房的最佳方 案之一,特別如香港空間狹窄的地方。」 別忘了貯物:裝嵌於傢具內或鼓勵孩子收拾的獨立收納 箱。Frank建議:「貯存空間要夠多,每天常用的用品可放在 開放式收納空間內,不常用的則可放於封閉式貯存空間中。」 Amrita指房間的用途可助屋主決定購置哪些傢具:「如 孩子花很多時間學習,我會設計一張面積大和符合人體工學 的書桌,並具備功能性貯物空間。」 當然還不能忽略安全。Marcel的兒童傢具系列Cybex便 是以安全為本的例子。「傢具必須符合安全要求。」他如此形 容公司系列,即是為小孩而設的高腳椅、搖椅、嬰兒搖椅等。 「安全問題解決後,我們便可自由探索其他想法。」 要來點小玩意的話,白板總沒錯,Jason指:「白板是 最適合小孩的方案,誰不喜愛左畫右畫?」在作任何設計決 定前,只需考慮孩子需要、個性和喜好便可。「鼓勵玩樂和 創意更加重要。」 134 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

A host of considerations come into play when deciding on furniture for a child’s room. “Use freestanding furniture for nurseries, as babies grow very fast, and you’ll soon need to replace old pieces with larger ones,” says Jason. Essentials include custom-made furniture, tables and chairs with adjustable heights, and transformable bunk beds and loft beds. “There’s no better solution for a child’s room than a loft – especially in Hong Kong, where space can be tight. Plus the ladder or climbing is fun for kids.” Speaking of mess: don’t forget storage, whether built into furniture or as standalone containers that will encourage kids to tidy up after themselves. “Have adequate storage – open for easy access to everyday items, and closed storage for not-so-commonly used ones,” advises Frank. Amrita adds that the room’s functions also help inform the furniture pieces worth investing in. “If a lot of time is spent studying, I would design a desk to be generously sized, ergonomic, and with functional storage.” As well, don’t forget safety. Marcel’s furniture line for children, Cybex, was designed with such considerations in mind. “Meeting safety requirements was one of our first priorities,” he says of their collection, which includes a high chair, rocker, bouncer, and accessories for young tots. “After that’s taken care of, we were free to explore all other ideas.” Where fun is concerned, there’s no going wrong with whiteboards. “They’re a practical solution for little kids as they all love to draw,” says Jason. Ultimately, with every design choice, simply keep the child’s needs, personality, and penchant for adventure in mind. “Encouraging fun and creativity is of utmost importance.”

Bunk or loft beds are key to utilising space while introducing a sense of fun; colourful pieces inject much character, such as Marimekko’s cushion cover, Indigo Living’s Hexagon mirror and Moroso’s chair from Lane Crawford. 悅目線條 有趣的雙層床或閣樓床能善用每處空 間;繽紛設計極具個性,如Marimekko 墊子套、Indigo Living的Hexagon鏡和連 卡佛有售的Moroso座椅。

• Acknowledge your child’s interests – use their musical instruments, skateboards, tutus as part of the design. This will also help enhance the child’s sense of identity and uniqueness. • It’s a good idea to maintain an uncluttered flow of space from the door to the bed. A simple layout, including designated play areas, goes a long way.

BRING THE INSIDE OUT As an extension or addition to the home, the outdoors are a luxury – and a functional one at that 作為家中的延伸或加建部分,戶外空間是個 奢侈又實用的生活天地

From entertaining to unwinding, gardening to – yes – even hanging laundry, the great outdoors is fit for a variety of functions. Suffice to say, this luxury is best put to work. Over the years, design innovations mean the size of a space is no longer a restricting factor in our use of it; moreover, as calls for sustainability grow more popular, homeowners are also becoming more thoughtful about how they furnish their outdoors. Weather considerations, for one, have risen in priority as of recent. “As the weather gets more severe, typhoon-safe designs are critical,” observes Rowena Gonzales, principal of eco-conscious interior design firm Liquid Interiors in Hong Kong. “Safety comes first, and clients are willing to get structural engineers to verify the safety of impermanent outdoor structures.” Ultimately, the outdoors can be as functional and practical as any other space in the home. “Outdoor spaces should be used,” says Regina Kwok, creative director of Hong Kong interior design studio Artwill. “They should be practical for the needs of the family.” All of which can be achieved – it takes only a little imagination and creativity. 由宴客到休憩,園藝到晾曬衣服,戶外空間擔當著多個重要而實際的用途,這個 奢侈空間值得擁有最好的設計。 經過不停演變,創意設計早已抵銷了空間面積的限制;而在可持續意念日漸普及 的情況下,屋主在裝修戶外空間時變得更細心謹慎。 近年,天氣因素成重點考慮之一。設計公司Liquid Interiors主理人Rowena Gonzales 表示:「天氣變化愈來愈極端,在颱風襲港的情況下也能保持安全的設計至為關鍵。安 全一定是首要條件,客人也願意委託工程師到來檢查短暫用的戶外結構安全狀況。」 戶外天地能跟家中其他位置一樣具備功能性和實用性。「應好好利用戶外空間。」 香港室內設計工作室Artwill的創意總監Regina Kwok說:「這裡應能符合家庭的實際需 要。」只需加點想像力和創意,這裡便能變成你專屬的戶外天地。

1. INSPIRATION: ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND SUNNY INTO THE WILD

Raw, rustic fixtures set just the right tone for your outdoor spaces. 野外天地 極具田園風的配件裝飾能 為戶外天地添加色彩。

Amplify your outdoor space with matching wares and colours. Bust out the bright yellows and sunny oranges, the searing greens and puncturing aquas – no other space lends itself to as much fun and ease in decorating. With furnishings and tableware, accessories and planting, think free-flowing rather than rigid. It’s all about creating a space you can use with utmost comfort. Go all out. With the outdoors, you have every permission. 活用家品和色彩,把戶外空間無限放大。選用鮮黃、鮮橙、綠色和水綠色,輕鬆裝 飾你的室外場所。購置傢具、餐具、配件和盆栽時,應從隨性靈活的角度出發,以悠閒 自在的款式為主。這裡就是能讓你盡情自由裝飾的地方,不設限制。

tips 146 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

• Mirrors do a great deal to make any space feel larger – the outdoors included. Incorporate them in large or small sizes depending on your space and the look you want to achieve. • Go for enduring and easy-to-clean accessories; think cushions in grey and beige, or materials in canvas and vinyl. • 鏡子能有效提升空間感,戶外天地亦如是。因應你的戶外空 間和想營造的格調來加裝不同大小的鏡面元素吧。 • 挑選耐用易潔的配件如淺灰和米色墊子、帆布和乙烯用料。


2. MATERIALS AND TEXTURES In selecting colours, materials and textures, consider the location of your outdoor space and whether shading is available. “The darker the material, the more it will absorb heat,” says Rowena. “Keep dark colours to a minimum unless your space is mostly in the shade.” More colourful approaches, meanwhile, are best relegated to items that can be stored away – picnic and table ware, for example, and accessories like cushion coverings and throws. “Vibrant colours will get washed out by the sun easily,” says Rowena. “Colourful items should be small and easy to store, to keep its colourful vibrancy.” For everything else, there’s classic earth tones and natural textures. Richard Miers, an award-winning garden designer from the UK, points to their reliability and sustainability: “I use natural materials as much as possible, such as hard wood and natural stone. They take on a lovely aged patination when exposed to the elements.” Woods are especially favoured for outdoor spaces. Keith Williams of Nievera Williams recommends ipe or teak, while Regina recommends hardwood, which maintains its form through windy and rainy seasons. But don’t forget to factor in maintenance. “Darker shades of wood, like natural oiled teak, will require regular maintenance – oiling once a month during the sunnier months,” Rowena points out. Go beyond aesthetic considerations with plants that bear fruits and vegetables, too. “Mix edible plants, culinary herbs, and fruits with the other plants,” advises Richard. As well, incorporate pops of colour with seasonal florals – or do as both Richard and Keith do: don’t be afraid of “going green on green.” “I remind my clients that green is a colour – and the most restful one at that,” says Richard. “As long as the plants are healthy, sometimes green is all the colour you need.”

挑選色彩、物料和質感前,先考慮戶外空間的地 點和受陽光直射的時間。Rowena指:「物料愈深色愈 吸熱。除非長時間受遮擋,否則應少用深色。」繽紛色 調適用於可收起的物品,如野餐用品、餐具、墊子套和 毯子等。「奪目顏色很易被陽光曬至褪色。繽紛用品應 以體積小巧和易於儲存的為佳,確保色彩長保明亮。」 大地色和天然質感是最穩妥和經典的裝備主題。英 國得獎花園設計師Richard Miers表示,這些元素既可靠 又具持續性:「我盡量使用天然物料,例如實木和天然 石材,它們隨年月變舊的模樣優美十分。」 很多屋主也喜愛在室外使用木材設計。 Nievera

Williams的Keith Williams建議重蟻木和柚木,而Rowena 則推薦實木,能抵受風雨,保養問題亦要留心。Rowena 指:「深色木材如天然柚木等,需要定期保養,夏季時 份大約要每個月上油一次。」 別少了大自然元素的份兒。能長出蔬果的植物也 可成漂亮點綴。Richard建議:「不妨加入可食用植物、 香料草本和水果樹。」你也可借用季節性花卉來注入繽 紛色彩,又或是參考Richard和Keith的做法,由綠色主 宰整個佈置氛圍。 Richard說:「我常提醒客人,綠色植物也是色 彩,而且是最能令人平靜的色彩。只要植物健康,戶 外空間就只需要綠色。」

3. FIXTURES AND FITTINGS With a space that can be as stripped down or versatile as desired, function will best dictate investments for our outdoor space. “If socialising is your main goal, a sofa set around an outdoor fire pit can enhance that experience. If individual relaxation is what you’re going for, sun chairs are more suitable,” says Rowena. Don’t scrimp on quality, and opt for pieces that don’t rust easily and weather well in the sun. Cushions and stuffing, for example, should be made for outdoor weather. “If the quality is good, it can be left outside without a cover – furniture tends to stay covered after a few minutes of rain, and easily get moldy in Hong Kong humidity.” One thing you can’t do without is seating. Consider a lounger or bar chairs, or even a daybed – “just to be able to disappear, relax, or nap – a must!” says Keith. He recommends a chaise longue for additional entertaining room, and looking to Everything Under the Sun for multifunctional outdoor pieces. And as the one most flexible area for the full spectrum of nature, the outdoors is the best place to incorporate them. Consider water features, such as small fountains or ponds. Says Richard: “I like to add water to a garden, either for the soothing sounds that mask other noises, or for the reflections of the sky.” Rowena, meanwhile, suggests multipurpose plants: “Jasmine comes with olfactory benefits, while guava climbing vines provide food and shade.” Also look out for plants that absorb heat, and go for “larger trough planters rather than individual pots for stability, and to hold enough soil so that the plants do not dry out easily on extremely sunny day,” she says. Fleurs.hk is a good place to start. What about more practical considerations, such as drying laundry? There’s a piece for that: “Use retractable laundry hangers (lifestyleclotheslines.com.au) that can come down from the ceiling so that floor space can still be used by other items,” says Rowena. 148 | HO≤E SOLUTIONS

戶外空間的裝潢可簡約,也可多姿多采, 不妨從它的用途角度出發,考慮投入成本的多 寡。Rowena說:「如你想將這兒打造成家人好友 的聚腳點,可圍著室外火爐擺放一套沙發組合, 讓人們投入聊天氛圍;如你多在此獨處休息,應 LESS IS MORE

是打造天然風生活的理想設計。

放置太陽椅。」 室外家品的質素不能忽略,不易生和風化 的設計最為理想,如戶外專用的墊子和填充料。 「優質的戶外產品不用特別加上遮蓋物,傢具則 要在下雨時鋪上覆蓋物,因香港天氣潮濕,傢具 易生霉菌。」 座椅是不能缺少的戶外傢具。考慮躺椅或吧 凳,甚或一張日床,Keith說:「就是能助你消失 一陣子、放鬆或小睡的傢具。」他建議添置一張躺 椅,宴客時可兼作座位,Everything Under the Sun 擁有數之不盡的戶外傢具任君選擇。 戶外亦是最適合兼融大自然元素的生活空 間,例如小噴泉和小池塘等水元素。Richard說: 「我喜歡為花園加入跟水有關的設計,既能聽到 悅目的潺潺水聲,又能掩蓋其他雜音,更可反映 美麗的天空。」 Rowena提出多用途植物的吸引之處:「茉莉 花能散發陣陣芳香,許多攀緣植物又可同時提供食 材和遮蔭。」另外還有可吸熱的品種。她續說: 「選擇花槽式種植方式,別擺放一個個花盆,不但 能確保植物持續生長,又能容納更多泥土,熱天時 也能避免植物乾枯。」Fleurs.hk是不錯的購物點。 戶外天地還可擔當更多用途,例如曬衣 物。Rowena說:「伸縮式晾衣架(lifestyleclotheslines.com.au)可隨時騰出空間擺放物件。」 這裡是室內空間的延續,也可作一個獨立區 域。你不只擁有選擇權,還可在選擇的過程中得到 樂趣。好好享受吧!

• Creating vegetable gardens with benches and seating, barbecue areas that encourage sitting with the chef ¬ all of these choices create a sense of unity and balance. • In limited space, choose plants that grow slowly and keep their form. These plants will be beautiful even if you have to cut them back to keep the garden in scale. • 打造附長椅和座位的蔬果花園,燒烤區鼓勵 你與主廚共聚交流,建起平衡與一致性。 • 在有限空間內,挑選成長緩慢的植物,能長 保外觀。修剪後,它們依然悅目耐看。

ROWENA GONZALES LIQUID INTERIORS

• Shading is key – without enough shading, outdoor spaces are virtually unusable. Go for quality retractable umbrellas that will not rust or break in our very humid and windy weather. • Outdoor lighting is also key in creating atmosphere. If there are no power plugs, consider some solar string lights.

• 遮蔭非常重要,否則戶外空間便形同虛設。 購買優質耐用的可摺式太陽傘,能抵擋潮濕 天氣和強風吹襲。 • 戶外照明是營造氣氛的必備工具。假如室外 沒有電源,可考慮太陽能燈串。

• When designing an outdoor space, keep your goals in mind, as well as how the space will function. Have a good understanding of how the sun will affect the area, and don’t be afraid to dream a little when designing your space. • Play with scale – sometimes a minimalist approach can make a huge statement and create a sense of depth. • When in doubt, call a landscape architect!

• 規劃戶外空間時,勿忘設計本意和空間的實 際用途。深入了解陽光對空間有何影響力, 並放膽隨心設計。 • 好好運用空間比例,有時簡約主義反而能營 造出矚目效果和深度。 • 如有疑難,向園藝建築師求助吧!

• Keep it simple. Get the balance and proportion of the garden – and the elements in it – right in relation to the house’s size and style. • Use plants more than hand landscaping if possible, but also ensure you have somewhere to sit and relax in, and be able to travel around a garden without getting muddy.

“KEEP IT SIMPLE – GET THE BALANCE AND PROPORTION OF THE GARDEN, IN RELATION TO THE HOUSE, RIGHT”

• 盡量以簡約為主,因應居所的大小和風格來 平衡花園的比例和設計,還有當中的元素。 • 盡可能選擇植物而非園藝設計,亦要確保你 有足夠地方安坐和休息,在花園散步時鞋底 也不會沾滿泥濘。

LAST LOOK

FAIR PLAY It is a quintessentially contemporary, timelessly cool palette that’s having a moment, but all-white interiors take serious savoir-faire to dress up just right. Play to gritty textures like ceramic, clay and marble for a layered look, while cosy, natural pieces like dark woodcarved tables, handmade pottery, vintage collectibles and potted plants are great for injecting visual interest and warmth. The finishing touch? Expansive windows lending to a sun-drenched oasis. 全白室內裝潢是最當代經典的時尚用色,更能為你的美學 取向定調。試試混入質感如陶瓷、陶土和大理石用料,打 造豐富層次,溫暖天然的元素如深木色餐桌、手製陶器、 古董珍品和盆栽也是增加視覺趣味的理想選擇。關鍵一
