After soaking up hints of fresh summer shades, like refreshing lagoon blue and warming coral pink in these four home interiors, we felt inspired to share some of the summer style buzz. In all four apartments, designed by
The first of these three inspirational interior designs was based around the concept of the blue sea … and the wood surf. Gold accents were selected to complement a blue lagoon hue, and much of the apartment is clad in wood tone on white concrete.
A contemporary white leather sofa, with an elegant black frame, is scattered with yellow and green accent cushions.
A blue entry door stands out against adjacent wooden panels.
The living rooms are each held within their own surrounding frames, with completely clear sides.
Blue dining chairs nestle against a grey dining table that is decorated with botanical ornaments.
A unique dining room pendant light fills the entire space above the dining table, echoing the shape and diameter of its surface perfectly.
Matching its shape, colour and size, a round black coffee table in the living room is a shorter version of the dining room table.
The external window frames match the black framing of the interior rooms.
A gold faucet and gold kitchen utensils sing out beautifully against the swathe of grey.
The bathroom is strictly monochrome, with a black wall hung toilet mounted on a plain white wall.
A black frame edges everything in the bathroom, as though a graphic artist had drawn it, outlining each item in fineliner pen.
The idea of summer blotches of dew led the visualisation of this turquoise and grass colour decor. A large amount of black was also introduced to add contrast and weight to the light summery scheme. The pairing of black with pastel shades creates a strong modern look, as seen in the composition of the
Again we find framed out living spaces, using a clear zoning technique that subtly separates rather than segregates.
The dining set seats four on modern black and grey dining chairs, around a circular perimeter.
Blue and white tiles create an attractive backsplash. A black faucet and black cabinet knobs accessorise the kitchen.
The blue, black and white decor scheme continues in the bedroom.
The bathroom holds a unique royal blue coloured toilet that is mounted against matching blue panels, next to a coordinated
A coral coloured
The platform beneath the bed, including the stairs leading up to it, offers a vast amount of added storage space to the small studio apartment.
Two coral dining chairs and two blue chairs surround a simple white dining table. The chairs themselves have unusual modern contours, which create a comfortably curvaceous shell.
The fourth and last interior was labelled by the designer as ‘monochrome realism with taste’, and is set over a 70 square meter space in Kiev, Ukraine. The small minimalist apartment is an open plan loft with a decor scheme that is based around a young female homeowner, with gorgeous artwork by
A grey and white backdrop is sweetened by pink accents and accessories – even the kitchen faucet is pink. Base cabinets in the open plan kitchen have mirror fronts, which adds to the illusion of space.
The clear walls inside this apartment are framed with pink, which makes them an incredibly bold feature in an otherwise quietly neutral space.
The lighting throughout is simple yet beautiful.
There is a pink cuboid toilet and pink vanity in the bathroom; grey decor and low lighting keep the bold facilities looking sophisticated.
