Founder and creative director of hoo, YC Chen has recently completed work on his own home 

Located in Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong, the two bedroom apartment has been renovated to create a mid-century modern atmosphere, while remaining both cosy and child-friendly. Graphic details have been incorporated throughout the interior, with a mix of colours and materials to be found in lighting fixtures, soft furnishings and finishings. The designer also added a few of the vintage furniture pieces that he has collected over the years. A herringbone parquet floor adds detail to the dining area which is given a unique touch thanks to the six differing chairs that surround the dining table and the selection of lights that hang above. “I love loose furniture and decor lighting,” says Chen. “I source from around the world and different brands I like; they make a home feel more homey and unique.”

A selection of Bearbricks, that the designer has been collecting for ten years, are concealed below the television in the living space, adding a playful element to the interior. The contemporary feel continues into both the master suite, where a monochromatic colour scheme is enhanced with pops of muted teal and yellow, and the children’s room, where a neutral palate is brightened with colourful features. But what is the designer’s favourite part of his new home? “The living room. I have a super big sofa, and I love lying on it while I watch movies.”
