For Rory’s compact 480 sq ft flat in Mid-Levels, Indigo Living’s interior designers were tasked with creating a sense of spaciousness.

Originally from London, he’s been in the city for two and a half years and his new life has involved some adjustments.

Rory booked a free instore appointment with an Indigo Living interior designer at the flagship Horizon Plaza store, together they chose key furniture pieces and accessories.

However, Rory didnt know how everything would fit in his flat. So he was recomended the online design service package. “It was perfect for me, I didnt want to spend too much money or spend my weekend instore. I sent by email all the information they asked for. Within 2 weeks, I had received a floorplan and 3D renderings. With these in hand , I went back to the store to choose the furniture with the layout plans in hand to review together. It definitely gave me the confidence to finalise the project in less time and achieve the look I wanted.”

Rory’s brief to Indigo Living was to make the most of his compact living-room space and to create a relaxing area where he could truly kick back. “It also had to be a place that I felt happy to invite friends over to,” he says. “It needed to have a functional yet comfortable living space, with somewhere to eat. I wanted to make sure the flat had some colour too, and statement pieces.”

Some of those key pieces included the retroinflected Cooper Sofa and Chairs with their classic curves, pleated backs and sleek metal legs. “They’re comfortable and practical,” says Rory. The Felix Coffee Table is adaptable, allowing different uses of the space. “All the pieces can be easily moved around and used together or separately, and they nest together for easy storage,” says Rory. Embroidered cushions provided the finishing touch.

The designer chose a blue palette—a colour considered a neutral hue for its simplicity, versatility and calming energy. ”It’s a comfortable and friendly colour, too,” says Rory. Modern touches such as plush velvets and brass details serve to bring light into the room, further creating a sense of spaciousness.

Once everything was done, Indigo Living’s installation and styling teams took charge. From start to finish, the whole process took less than three weeks. The result is a refreshing, uplifting space that welcomes guests and showcases both design vision and Rory’s own personality, to perfectly complement a busy and social lifestyle.
