Denis’ Apartment


Denis is a business owner who consults from home and wanted to create a friendly yet professional welcome to his apartment.

Below are samples of the digital moodboards that I put together for Denis that showed him the look that he could achieve and gave him information of which store he could purchase each item from, based on his provided budget. Denis choose to implement the job at his own pace and time and used the My Decorator digital moodboards as his guide.  You will see from the after photos also pictured below the final result of his newly decorated apartment.

Based on Denis’ brief I chose a blue palette, introduced elements from the beach, kept furniture light in wood tones and added some pattern and texture into his apartment with art, decorator items and furnishings.  He now has a space where he can work and relax in.

Denis requested his dining room to be “Lesehan” which is an Indonesian casual style of dining.  Its a very homely way to dine and brings people closer together.  It’s also widely common in Restaurants.

I choose a black and grey striped rug to anchor the dining room and used Denis’ own coffee table as the dining table.  Large bold stripe black, white, grey and yellow striped floor cushions were placed around the table.  The addition of a fun clock, some art and a bright yellow bowl meets all the requirements of Denis’ brief for a Lesehan dining room.  He has used the space on various occasions and is very happy with it.
