The Russian design studio SL Project has managed to innovate the interior of the Housing Problem project, a small apartment located in Moscow, through a colorful illumination system. Ever heard of home colour therapy? In order to solve a real problem, the lack of space, the team put a spell on the dwelling and added a fun element. The main idea of this entire concept was to bring a bright colorful scent into a home that sometimes tends to get boring. Colours have the ability to influence our mood. Moreover, a certain ambiance can be created with limited resources. This ingenious rainbow-like illumination system is ideal for those who want to “add some colour” to their lives and let’s face it, once in a while, we all feel like doing so!
Small apartments are the most exposed to the “boredom” effect. When it comes to colours, the choices are always made based on subjective tastes. For a romantic evening, one can choose to “paint” the room all red. Emphasizing particular elements becomes an easy process because the light is smoothly led wherever you want it to. Not only that you can move the focus from one element of decor to another, but you can also put different light effects on different items. Purple, green and red for instance can blend, creating a warm atmosphere, without getting too extravagant. There are a dozen of colourful possibilities, after all! It’s just a matter of discovery and intriguing experiments!
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
Painting the walls might be the easiest way to add green to the bedroom along with bedding and accessories in matching hue, but think beyond the obvious if you want a truly captivating room. Painting the ceiling in green can be a fun alternative and by leaving the walls white, you will still have a neutral and versatile backdrop that will beautifully showcase wall art and sculptural décor additions. And for those who really want a personalized solution, mixing different shades to come with your own custom green hue is indeed an exciting and enjoyable alternative. This will assure that you are proud owner of a one-of-a-kind bedroom with a shade of green that you came up with.
