Monochromatic Private Home in Shanghai Uses Concrete as Color Base

Wei Yi International Design completed another project in Shanghai using their signature contemporary minimal Zen-like style. Concrete became the base color for the big part of the house, allowing very little color accents.

Keeping the living room monolithically grey, the designers mixed dark tones with white elements in the kitchen/dining area. They also kept bedroom, bath, and home office white.

There is some serenity in all this greyness. And thanks to high-end furnishings, the interior looks complete. Contrast in textures, again, plays a big role in setting the dynamic for the minimal interior. Polished concrete and grey-painted wooden slats play well with leather and wool of the furnishings.

In the kitchen the dynamic comes from difference in dark tones as well as an impressive black textured countertop. To really make a statement with lighting Wei Yi went with a yellow built-in light that runs through the ceiling in the living room like a lightning flash.

The rest of space is simple and distraction-free. Bedroom is only for sleeping, while home office’s sole purpose is to provide perfect conditions for work.
