Red and blue accents thread an appealing upbeat vibe through light modern interiors. The vibrancy is contagious, lifting the mood of those who would live there or just come to visit. Interiors with richness and solidity of colour communicate warmth and strength of character, keeping the eye moving and the mind guessing. Take a look at these two takes on the theme, from a totally unique space with custom made pieces, to a stylishly “off the peg” studio design. Two different approaches on two different budgets, but both with bold aspirations. Let us know whether you’d go the extra mile and sink the money, or if you’d celebrate pieces already ripe for the picking.
