Garcia Benthien Architecture completed the design for an elegant modern apartment sized 130 square meters in Curitiba, Brazil. Especially envisioned for a young couple, the home showcases an interesting layout, enhanced by inspiring furniture elements, materials and textures. A “monolithic” coating seems to wrap the living area, ensuring a predominant white color palette, stylishly contrasted by a wood veneer panel, yellow dining chairs and a small wooden coffee table.
Even though it lets out a feeling of continuity, the open plan living area is composed of several functionally different areas, such as the TV&living zone, reading corner and dining space. Lighting spots on the ceiling (and above the curtains) enhance the overall modern atmosphere. Conforming to the rule “simplicity is bliss”, the bedroom was designed in a minimalist fashion, while respecting the overall color palette and design of the apartment. Can you tell us what elements you enjoy and/or dislike about this apartment?
Painting the walls might be the easiest way to add green to the bedroom along with bedding and accessories in matching hue, but think beyond the obvious if you want a truly captivating room. Painting the ceiling in green can be a fun alternative and by leaving the walls white, you will still have a neutral and versatile backdrop that will beautifully showcase wall art and sculptural décor additions. And for those who really want a personalized solution, mixing different shades to come with your own custom green hue is indeed an exciting and enjoyable alternative. This will assure that you are proud owner of a one-of-a-kind bedroom with a shade of green that you came up with.
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
