Meet an environmentally friendly space that really got our attention. The Horcasitas Apartment “suffered” a makeover and became this fashionable and sustainable place, really inspiring and really cool as a home. The apartment was an outdated 70’s space but once adapted to the modern tendencies became a gorgeous inhabitable place and of course, a “our site material”. The apartment, renewed by DEN Architecture, offers a unique spatial experience: “The composition of volumes, including furniture and built-in cabinets, fills the generous open spaces without an overwhelming presence. Expansive monolithic forms in contrasting colors provide a seamless transition from one space to another.”
Both, the living room and the kitchen/ dining room offer incredible views over the city’s skyline. The rooms embrace neutral colours, mixing wood with dusty brownish- grey tones. The result is a smooth transition between the environments. To bring a shade of colour to the earthy tones, sprinkles of fiery red complete the décor. Fresh and inspiring, the Horcasitas Apartment is much more complex and bright than before. “The visual appeal is complemented with an equally sophisticated ecological sensibility: dual-flush toilets, low VOC paint, reclaimed plumbing fixtures, recycled marble tiles, and the re-use of existing floors make an aggressive remodel gentle on our planet.” You can see some of the transformations, below:
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
Adding green to the bedroom is easy if you already have a muted color scheme going in the room. It is a color that works beautifully with the likes of white, gray and even brown. While the yellowy-greens add warmth to the bedroom, the blue-tinged variants bring a touch of coolness along with a vibrant ambiance. Here is a pick of 25 gorgeous bedrooms that incorporate green in a gorgeous fashion.
