Serbia based ArhitekturaBudjevac (www.arhitekturabudjevac.com) completed the renovation of an apartment in an old 70’s building. The designers had the task to turn an old, family-dwelling apartment into a single dwelling contemporary area. The apartment in its initial state was characterized by a number of small clusters, all assigned with distinct functions, typical of the Socialist times. A first design response was stripping the unnecessary walls, thus getting a large loft-like space. A single 43-sqm large multipurpose space was created, with two bedrooms as its night area.
As for the furniture and building materials, the designers kept their idea of neatness, but also combined the furniture with the industrial aspect given by the concrete and the installation pipe. All tables were designed and produced out of black steel with raw finish, combined with glass tops. In contrast to that, high-gloss white and white curtains were used to counter-balance and make it more appealing. In addition to the Le CorbusiersLC3, LC4 and Eames chairs, icons of modern design, the apartment includes also other contemporary furniture: a Ross Lovergloves Supernatural chair which is used for dining, and a hanging lounge chair designed exclusively by Sasha Budjevac and produced only in two copies.

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.
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.
