Move Over, Magnolia

Nagatacho Apartment by Adam Nathaniel FurmanThose who doubt the power of colour should visit this delightfully colourful apartment in the centre of Tokyo. Created by multi-disciplinary designer Adam Nathaniel Furman, this apartment is an explosion of candy hues and pastel shades. In the hands of lesser talent this might have turned into a gaudy mess, but fortunately the designer is a colourist extraordinaire.

Ice-creamy shades of pastel pink, blue and lilac create a harmonious backdrop, punctuated by bright flashes of orange and yellow, especially on the doors and cupboards. The clever use of patterns, such as the stripey floor and chevron tiles of the kitchen and arch motif on the doors, helps to create visual interest; whilst the white ceilings and walls alleviate the eyes and frame the pops of colour beautifully.

The juxtaposition of materials is just as inspiring as the colour palette. Industrial materials such as plastics and vinyl sit next to precious marble and wood, all beautifully finished with impeccable craftsmanship.

This joyous ode to colour is the ultimate antidote to bland magnolia walls, a great example of how colour and expressive design can transform spaces and lift the spirit.
