Minimalism in interior design is usually associated with soberness, a high level of practicability and lack of personality. But we ran over an interesting apartment design in Moscow, which seems to defy some of the rules. White Cube was envisioned and implemented by Sergey Nasedkin and Anna Ulyanova (principals of Russian studio ARCH.625) and showcases an interesting mix of materials and decorations, spiced up with daring colors.
The original apartment has a total surface of 861 square feet (about 80 square meters), yet its layout and design inspires space throughout. White walls define the interiors and wood is partially employed to create stunning visual contrasts. Natural light during the day is ensured by various windows in key places, while subtle lighting in the ceilings contribute to an “alert” atmosphere during the evenings and night time. But for us, the highlights of this apartment are the decorations, seamlessly blending in the overall composition. What is your stand on this apartment design? See any particular details you enjoy?
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.
