The main color of the space is calm and restrained gray, and the auspicious cloud pattern is presented with the gold thread of Suzhou embroidery. Together with the “Tai Chi” by the Taiwanese sculptor Zhu Ming and the quality tonality of furniture artworks, the space is infused with a rich and intriguing vision. The red door, which has the meaning of honor, auspiciousness and happiness, is combined with the paintings of French artist Fabien Verdier, the expression of the integration of eastern and Western cultures, presenting the vivid and vivid eastern impression of space without being old-fashioned.

With simple and restrained space lines, he tries to restore a real, fresh and full of living temperature space, so that residents can return to the essence of home.
