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.”
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
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.
