Overall mood:


We prefer a transitional decor style because it borrows from both traditional and modern design to facilitate a space that’s not “too much,” in terms of one style or another. There’s a sense of balance that’s appealing.

We would want to include relatively neutral color palettes, creating a calming and relaxed space that manages to feel both stylish and sleek, as well as warm and inviting.

The design should be thoughtful, keeping in mind the needs of guests for extra comfort.
Our space should also be instagrammable - Incorporate unique items into the interior that gives the room a focus point. Think about specific corners where you can achieve these fun ideas. Ensure there is a “social media moment” in the apartment that guests will want to take snaps of - these can also be very important in the listing details.

Accents:


We want to add character with our decorative objects and accessories in line with our overall objective of each space. We can also consider changing wall colors and wall paper to add individuality and character to the rooms.
Our accent items need to show personality and add a statement without being too imposing. It is advisable to mix up textures and patterns,
We want the lighting to be an element that can transform the mood to suit the various needs of guests.
Beautiful rugs are also essential in bringing the space together, we want to ensure these are placed in the correct places to add some warmth.
Wall paintings are also essential to be included.
Plants are also essential, but we will be using artificial plants - please include in the selection.
