Powder shades and a great use of (a small) space.

This place attracted my attention for the use of color: pink, a pinky terracotta, a powder pink, a powder beige-pink. The different areas and rooms are unified by the use of all these shades that the eye perceives as variations of the same pink color, when in reality they are all different colors; these shades also look more intense or more brilliant according to the amount or quality of light coming through the windows as well.

At a second glance I was hooked by the sapient division of the space.

This is a 48 square metre apartment, basically a big room divided according to functions, an entryway and a bathroom (of which no photos were published because they are probably too small or with no windows). The owners are a Swedish couple that managed to transform a problem (the lack of space) into an opportunity.

The laying of the wooden floor and the colors help separate and unite the areas at the same time.

The bedroom is cleverly closed by a 3/4 plasterboard wall and framed glass windows and doors, to let the light flow in but also makes it private when necessary (is that a stripy curtain, the one I can see to the right of the window door on the third photo from the top? I am pretty sure).

Overall it is a place full of good bits to copy, including the kitchen with its cabinets in pine plywood.

A few years ago I published another example – more industrial- of how to divide the space with glass windows,  a Paris apartment by Studio Moc.
