How do you imagine the apartment of the future? Compact and functional? Elegant and spacious? Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab’s Changing Places team has one realistic vision on future apartment design – an innovative living space named CityHome. This concept evolves around movements and an intuitive space, where everything has its place but can easily transform its function with one gesture, a touch or even at the sound of your voice.
This innovative apartment design bends and flexes according to your needs and no heavy lifting is required. American engineers of MIT have come up with a viable solution that makes 200 square feet is enough space to live within a busy city.
This modular apartment of the future transforms with a simple hand movement. The built-in sensors, motors, and LED lights help transform the box into an “apartment in the box” including a bed, a dining room table, cooking surface, a closet, and even multipurpose storage. Captured all in one box, this space-saving solution is not only fit for small apartments but also for larger spaces that need that extra square foot. Motorized and (too) easy to use, the CityHome system is (still) just an exploration of what can be achieved with the knowledge, technology and creativity we posses. We’ve seen this idea to reshape our surrounding on Le Blog Design and just had to share it.

Adding green to the bedroom is easy if you already have a muted color scheme going in the room. It is a color that works beautifully with the likes of white, gray and even brown. While the yellowy-greens add warmth to the bedroom, the blue-tinged variants bring a touch of coolness along with a vibrant ambiance. Here is a pick of 25 gorgeous bedrooms that incorporate green in a gorgeous fashion.
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.
