Located in Hanoi, Vietnam, ML Apartment by Le Studio is a crib especially designed for a small active family. Upon consulting with the client, the designer realized that the owner and his 4-year-old son were always full of energy, quite easily bored and had a particular dislike of stationary spaces: “In this case, a trend-led approach would not be ideal since one would never be able to satisfy the client’s preference permanently, or it would be very difficult to rebuild this apartment completely in a different direction. Our approach to this problem would be to create a space that could be modified easily and changed up on a daily basis without repeating itself, giving owners a sense of renewal everyday in their own home”, explained the project developers.
Flexibility was thus the main attribute guiding the design: “The main solution we came up with in this project was to replace the entire fixed wall of the small bedroom by sliding panels. When retracted, the panels would optimize the space for the living room, which is relatively small at the moment, improving ventilation for the common area and provide space for the highly active son. When in use, the panels would create one more bedroom for guest or a new family member in the near future.” Maximizing kitchen and dining space was also one of the main aims of the rejuvenation process.

Emerald is a color that has consistently topped trend charts in recent times and its jewel-toned glamor is perfect for bedrooms with Hollywood Regency style. Malachite pattern and color is also a smart choice if you love that luxurious look in the bedroom while eclectic bedrooms drenched in green goodness steal the show with sheer audacity and flair.
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.
