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.
Combining a requirement for luxury with the latest ideas in modern decor, Reid Smith Architects & Len Cotsovolos ( Interior Architectural Designer ) completed Lower Foxtail Residence, a “sparkling residence of glass and clean lines tucked in among predominantly rustic cabins in the Yellowstone Club.” With a remote location and plenty of lush greenery surrounding the building, this Montana house raises the bar when it comes to contemporary US living....
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
There’s more to San Diego than sun and surf, although the nation’s eighth-largest city loves to boast about a mild climate considered by many to be the best in the U.S. With (mostly) easy access to beaches, mountains and deserts, San Diego is a recreation lover’s paradise. Attractions like the jewel of Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Zoo), Legoland California and SeaWorld keep tourism booming, and the highly rated University of California at San Diego has spawned a healthy biotech industry. Meanwhile, a diverse, ever-gentrifying urban population is upending the city’s reputation as a conservative Navy town.
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
Named after the “warning call shouted by construction workers before exploding the rock mountain in Jerusalem“, the textured Barud House appears as a woven residential construction pierced by large windows exploring the surrounding views. Located in Jerusalem, Israel, the stunning house embedded in the landscape occupies a total area of 350 square meters on a 850 square meter property.

This mesmerising Victorian house, nestled in London (De Beauvoir Conservation area), was renewed and extended this year by Scott Architects. As a curiosity, the project won the title “Best small house of the year” at The Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2013. Everybody was pretty much impressed by its inspiring, yet quirky appearance. The back of the house was garnished with a unique curvaceous extension, which pretty much adds a sense of modern to...
Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care, perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue standout even while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition, get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.
The bathroom is perhaps the one room that doesn’t allow you to do very much in terms of furniture. With so much space taken up by the shower, the tub, the vanity, and the toilet, it can be a challenge to figure out how to bring in a little more style, even with the smallest pieces of furniture like shelves and benches — especially if you’re stuck with a really small bathroom! Lucky for you, there are lots of benches and stools out there that are versatile enough to fit any bathroom, small or large.
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.
