Vilnius based architects Heima have designed a seductively dark apartment which draws you in with its sleek details and bright jewel tones.
The architects extended the living room of this 80 square metre apartment by eliminating one of the two original bedrooms. Instead of keeping the original walls they built a diagonal partition which not only created extra wardrobe space for the bedroom on the other side but also injected a sense of dynamism to the living room.
Most of the walls and ceilings were painted in a daringly dark shade of grey, against which the rich emerald, burgundy and purple of the furniture and accent walls really pop, creating a palpable sense of theatre. The dark background and focused spotlights also serve to highlight the exquisite details, from beautifully crafted handles and cabinets to the brass tap fixtures in the bathroom. A perfect apartment for stylish bachelors.
Pair cool, restrained lighting with bright colour furniture to create an intriguing contrast. Try the Roest 20 ceiling light from Karven, the Eiffel suspension light from Frama and the I-Club wall light from LZF.

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Minimalism is about much more than empty spaces. It is the artful use of light, colour and objects to define spaces, creating an atmosphere that is warm and contemplative. The BU1H house, designed by Igor Sirotov Architects, is a great example.
