High-end furniture and richly tonal colour palettes create sophisticated spaces inside these three polished Vietnamese homes. This upmarket image is peacefully balanced with a peppering of green spaces inside, in the shape of understairs courtyards, hideaway terraces and integrated indoor planters. The effects of Mother Nature are dominant in the character and harmony of these interiors, evoking a sense of tranquillity and encouraging a slower pace of life at home. In a fast-moving world, we should always make time to stop and smell the roses.
