Living in an apartment in the heart of the city is both practical and convenient. And the interior design tends to follow accordingly: modern, clean cut, no clutter, and minimalist. This featured apartment in Senayan however is trying to “tone down” the modernism and minimalism and add some vintage, ethnic and quirky touches in the decoration. Here is another vintage invasion in the modern Jakarta, in the home of a Japanese expat, Mr Akira.
A mid century cabinet, a retro telephone, a vietnamese lacquer bowl, and an abstract painting by Kukuh, all go together in the living room.
A dressmaker’s dummy in Indian traditional vest mixes with the giant painting, darken the overly light flooded bed room.
The desk is another mid century piece. And the chair may not look comfortable but it has an iconic presence.
Hope you enjoy this posting. This time around not too vintageful, i know. Have a restful weekend guys:)
