How interior design can redefine your lifestyle

For most of us, being confined in our own homes has changed the way we use them; reception areas have become home offices, guest rooms have turned into gyms, and rooms we rarely used have found new purpose. Every home has changed in its own way, along with our lifestyles.

That’s why we need interior design now more than ever, to not just change how our homes look, but to change the way we live. Design can make spaces feel bigger, brighter, livelier and more seamless. In your home, every design choice can say a lot about your personal style, and every little detail can make a bold statement about who you are.

Whether it’s a toothbrush, an airplane or a chair, it’s always the same philosophy: to think about what the user will gain.

For Philippe Starck, the visionary French designer, details are everything. Over a legendary four-decade career, he’s designed everything from homeware and furniture to mega yachts and space stations, and his influence can be found everywhere in our contemporary design landscape. Throughout a career spanning over 10,000 creations, his philosophy has been consistent: design must always improve the life of the user. As Starck notes, “Whether it’s a toothbrush, an airplane or a chair, it’s always the same philosophy: to think about what the user will gain.”

This guiding principle is what led Starck to team up with London-based developer, John Hitchcox, to create YOO Inspired by Starck, a global design powerhouse that channels his revolutionary approach into residential and hotel design. “YOO is a very unique concept in the world. It allows our cultural tribe to be helped with competence, honesty and tenderness at a very crucial moment of their life; the purchase of their apartment,” Starck affirmed.

With an impressive reputation for designing the world’s most iconic hospitality spaces and branded residences, YOO Inspired by Starck is bringing this vision to life at Sapphire Residences, a luxury residential tower in the heart of Colombo which envisions a new kind of vertical lifestyle for the privileged few. The resulting collection of 132 luxury residences boasts expansive living areas and panoramic views, and comes in four distinctive interior styles, designed to suit the lifestyles of the modern sophisticate:

1. Nature
