Happy Friday! Let’s end the week with a bang! I hope you all had an amazing week, full of love and happiness. I know I had a busy week, but I’m ready to kick it back this weekend, and enjoy the last couple of summer weekends. Today I am bringing back an older series — Colored Interiors. Lately I’ve been feeling really inspired to spruce up my own space, and decided to look for some inspiration!
Red in my opinion is one of the most vibrant colors. It represents strength, and is usually associated with attraction. I love red in accessories, such as bags, statements pieces, and of course the classic red lip. It is the perfect accessory color.
Verner Panton is probably one of my favorite designers. He wasn’t afraid to layer materials, forms, and textures. This monochromatic interior that he created for the Spiegel Canteen at Hamburg’s Museum is genius. He opted for a colors that were very close in relationship to each other, but used a layering technique. The circle is main motif of the room, seen in the carpet walls, tables, and hanging lamps. The ceiling breaks up the space through the introduction of sharp angles.
The Centauro Concept Store by DMDV arquitectos located in Brazil uses the color red differently: it flattens the color into a 2-D surface. The design being inspired by a race track, the design works effectively as a means of directing people through the store. This technique is so simple, yet makes a powerful effect.
Imagine being experiencing a play inside this theater! How amazing! The monochromatic effect of the theater along with its folding surfaces create a very modern effect. Nevertheless the uses its monochromatic simplicity to shift its focus onto where it should be — the main stage!
Have a great weekend!
