White is not exactly a very exciting color but it does have a lot of character and can be very powerful in many different contexts, including interior design and decor. A house with pure white walls can either look boring or highly sophisticated and stylish and the difference is typically in the details. This is a family home located in Taipei, Taiwan which has a total interior surface of 93 square meters spread across two floors. Its interior was redesigned by studio Allness Design in 2019 and the consensus was to create a loft-inspired space with a breezy and airy feel. The main color which was used for the walls, ceilings and a lot of the furniture is white which fives the rooms a pure and light appearance.
The spiral staircase which connects the two floors is part of the open kitchen’s layout
The majority of the functions are clustered on the main floor, with an additional bedroom upstairs which reinforces the lift-like planning we mentioned earlier. The areas are connected by an elegant spiral staircase with a slender metal frame, a thin white pole at the center and floating wooden steps complementing the whole design. The house also has wooden flooring throughout the entire surface which helps to create a warm and comfortable ambiance. Although defined by simplicity, the interior design as a whole also has diversity, with marble, metal and glass being used as accent materials.
