900 sqft ︱ Dark Museum aesthetic, Anti-cosy

Google "dark interiors" and  you'll find a plethora of articles offering advice on how to inject warmth into these ostensibly clinical spaces.

Yet, steering away from conventional wisdom, designer Wei Ting set out to defy expectations. Her vision? A space drenched in a dark, monochromatic ambiance, resonating with the aesthetics of a museum, but decidedly anti-cosy. Rejecting the commonplace use of wall-hung art pieces, Wei Ting's concept envisions art as an amalgamation of textures, furniture, and lighting. Oak, stone, glass, fabric, and microcement, all swathed in a harmonious color palette, were meticulously selected and layered. One captivating spectacle within this orchestration is the Fluo lamp, an artistic creation by Arturo Álvarez. Suspended against the backdrop of black oak joinery and furnishings, the pendant lamp, crafted from veils of galvanized steel mesh, evokes the illusion of vaporous fabric. Its fluid, elegant silhouette artfully dances with light volumes and intensity levels.
 

Wei Ting elaborates on her design philosophy, "My approach to design is never to confine a space or home to its existing form, but to draw inspiration from spaces we cherish. In this instance, envisioning the living space as a gallery transforms every minutiae into a work of art. I envision the couple treating this space as their canvas, infusing bits of their life to craft their masterpiece over the years spent together."
 

While the images might suggest a deliberate application of a greyscale filter, the reality mirrors the curated aesthetic captured through the lens. Recognizing the paramount importance of clean, unclad walls in achieving the museum aesthetic, Wei Ting opted for a nuanced approach. Instead of a stark white, the walls embraced a subtle tone, a white imbued with a sheer grey undertone. This intentional choice allows natural light to cast a mesmerizing greyscale effect across the entirety of the space, enveloping the home in an aura of mystique tinged with melancholy.
