PMK+Designers recently completed a modern project for a newlywed couple in Taiwan, entitled “Between Art and Music”. The aim of the apartment was to give the client a night and day difference from their day job where white marble counter tops and bright walls surround their dental clinic. We wanted to give the owners the ease and comfort they so desire in their first home as a newlywed couple. This is a place to clear the mind, a retreat from the bustle of work life.
Designed in clean modern lines, minimal in materials and palette, natural materials – concrete, stone, stucco and wood, and the soft tones of the walls and furniture instill the house in tranquility and warmth, augment the space and provide an appropriate setting for a collection of contemporary paintings. The wall which provides backdrop for art work is the center piece of the home. It was treated as an art piece all by itself. It had been done and redone with layer after layer of concrete, white concrete, washed paint, and sanded down repeatedly to give that mild texture that you might find in contemporary art paintings.
The apartment’s perimeter contains everyday rooms such as the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. The center is a transitional area, a point of entry and a spiritual refuge. For the owners, between art and music which changes periodically, living in this space is a constantly changing reminder of the nature and importance of reflection and contemplation.

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.
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
