Before & After: Shanghai apartment



International companies or organizations often provide housing for employees. As an teacher at international schools, the door of my home opened up to a broad spectrum of spaces, most needing some interior TLC. A young family in Shanghai, China, has been going through various phases of creating their home away from home. This takes time, patience, and will.

Phase 1: the apartment in “as is” condition upon moving in; white walls, nice wooden floors, lots of space.

Phase 2: bold colors on walls to liven the space up; mix n’match furniture for optimal use of space

Phase 3: (with SH services) repainting in calming and complimentary colors; selecting and repositioning of furniture; accessories like art are to come

Quite different, right? More on how Somebody’s Home services helped this apartment feel like home in the next Home Away From Home feature.
