Elegance and functionality define this minimalist penthouse apartment developed by esé studio and located in Lycabettus, Athens. Initially discovered on Decofairy, the design of this place intrigued us due to its many original furniture items and daring storage solutions. Nowadays, there is a tendency towards hiding things behind camouflaged doors, yet this apartment has everything out in the open, with a successful visual output.
By mixing Scandinavian objects with flea market finds, the designers managed to create a balanced living space, bursting with creativity. The color palette was kept neutral, with gray walls, oak wooden floor, a black fireplace, cement & white lacquer. In this relatively sober environment, some elements ingeniously stand out: the red lamp and wall clock in the bedroom, colorful cushions or the blue chair in the living room. Go on, explore this place for yourself and feel free to share ideas in the comments section!
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.
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.
