Micro Apartment by Folk Design
Size is Not Everything
Small can be beautiful, as this exquisite micro apartment in Taiwan by Folk Design demonstrates. The interior designers managed to create a multi-functional living space for a mother and daughter in a ground floor apartment of just over 30 square metres. They did so with creative design features such as a table which lifts up from the floor, clever positioning of windows which protects privacy whilst flooding the space with natural light and the use of a restrained palette of colours and materials, especially white and plywood. The addition of green plants and simple yet sculptural table lights add further design interest. Never before has so much serenity and style been packed into such a small but perfectly formed package.

Tourists have long flocked to the city of Guilin in China, famous for its spectacular limestone hills towering over serene lakes and rivers. Those who stay at The Other Place, a local guest house, however, may be surprised by scenery which is rather unexpected but no less spectacular.
A cool space often looks best in a calm, orderly interior design scheme. A good example is this sleek villa on the outskirts of Kiev, designed by architect Denis Rakaev, which uses a restrained colour palette and carefully selected design elements.
