Colour can also be used to connect a room such as here, where a stylish teal wall and framing of large picture windows provides a dramatic backdrop for impressive large-scale canvases. The soft furnishings pick up accents from the paintings, which help to co-ordinate a warmer and more welcoming feel.
Inventive lighting allows for different ‘experiences’ within the space; bright spotlights for cooking, decorative pendants at the breakfast bar and modern feature lights over the living area.
Light, bright and airy
Typically, an open plan interior will feel lighter and airier, with fewer dead spaces and dark corners going to waste.
A palette of soft blues and greys with hints of gold gives subtle poise to the living room interior of this spectacular combined kitchen/dining room penthouse apartment.
Similar use of pale shades unites this L-shaped living/dining space. Huge picture windows draw the eye to spectacular views. Colours of nature sit beautifully against the neutral backdrop. Where light is limited, whites and reflective surfaces (glossy cabinets, glass, aluminium and so on…) help to create the same bright feel. This stylish kitchen/diner shows how white can look anything but clinical.
