Neopolis sent us photos and information regarding their newest project, an apartment design in the city of Banská Bystrica, Central Slovakia. According to their description, “the interior is designed for three people – married couple and son. There is an entrance hall with decorative floor tiles which continues up along with the side frame of a mirror. Kitchen and living room are joined into one big open space. The most interesting part of the living room is the fireplace – it has no chimney. A bio-ethanol burning system with nice flame effect and no smoke creates a great atmosphere.Cream-brown colors contribute to the warmth of the space. The apartment also features a guest room which is temporary a home office as well, accommodating a lot of book-shelfs and storing cabinets. Master bedroom is quite large, with a bright an airy feeling.
The children’s bedroom stands out: using of green color palette makes this room more fresh and less conservative than the rest of the flat. A bathroom with two wash-basins also acts as the technical room with wash machine and dryer. The main materials used in the design were massive wood, special glossy furniture materials, Italian leather, and high-end ceramics. This is also the reason behind using a very simple design, consisting of straight lines without curves and wild decorations”. How would you comment on the overall design of this apartment in Slovakia?
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
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.
