One glance at this apartment situated in the heart of the city in Devonshire and it is easy to identify the inspiration behind the design. Connatural introduces more lush greenery into this two-bedroom apartment, through the use of natural finishings and soft, neutral shades, despite the neighbourhood already being surrounded by all manners of fauna and flora. It evokes the image of living a peaceful and serene life out in the forest, except with the convenience of being in the city.

This intimate space is made even more so by removing the existing walls that separated the two bedrooms from each other and the balcony from the living room. Not only that, the whole apartment shares the same cement-like, grey vinyl floor tiles that help visually unify the space. The unit was then reconfigured, with only sliding doors to help differentiate one room from the other and decorated with numerous earth-toned furnishings.

In the middle of the shared kitchen and living area sits a clean, white wooden island counter finished with grooves to replicate wooden planks that lends the room a resort-like appearance. The accompanying rattan bar stools and rug, along with the potted plants, help complete the look and add a convivial, nature-inspired atmosphere to the space.

Behind the heavy wood barn doors that stand proudly on the other end of the room is the master bedroom. A settee was installed below the existing bay window to create a cozy corner for the homeowner to wind down and relax with the scenery outside to keep them company. The settee is connected to the platform that the bed is on which acts as storage and to add to the resort vibe of the room, reiterating the image of living a tranquil life away from the hubbub of the city.
