The theme of this bright apartment in Bucharest, Romania is based on a delicate and feminine note design for a young lady. In order to create the illusion of a larger space, the designer at Studio 3 Plus employed a palette of warm and bright colors. Passing from one space to another is gradual in terms of colors and textures. The entrance space consists of living room and dinning area exuding a welcoming and optimistic vibe. Despite their difference in style, the white armchair and the wing wallpaper were both integrating in the unified design theme, with striking visual effects.
The kitchen is located next to the dinning area and features an interesting fume mirror color to extend the space. In order to avoid visual cluttering, the designers envisioned the bedroom as simple as possible, with a large bed as a key element and a chest of drawers furniture in white finishing. The main bathroom has wooden walls and floors, in tune with the rest of the apartment. Enjoy the virtual gallery below and tell us what you think!

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.
Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care, perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue standout even while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition, get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.
