Defined by a theatrical interior design, House A displays a minimalist set of interiors created to welcome inhabitants with a playful light and dark duo. Rigorously designed by Vaillo & Irigaray and Iñigo Beguiristain, the 289 square meter residence can be found in Pamplona, Spain. Curtains propose a subtle change as you walk from one space to the next and seem to hide and reveal a carefully compartmentalized space. Wenge wood was combined with light colored floor and simple color choices to give the interiors a strong, bold character. Playing with light and shadow, transparency and translucency, the architects composed a cluster of spaces separated by the extensive use of drapery. Light was carefully placed to illuminate the simple details, creating a unique atmosphere. Here are a few words describing the space straight from the architects: “The project involves a space experimentation based on straggling wet rooms and crystallizing them as a pierced canvas in wenge timber, as a true “thick wall”. Furrows and haunting sparkles of hidden piercing in this last stratum conceal timber solidity and dilute it into a suggesting velvet luster, light translucent glass reflections and fogged lace transparencies wrapping and blurring the house.”
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.
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.
