Living With Colour

Whenever I find colour used well I have to share it with you. Homeowner Halewijn, of NU Architectuuratelier, designed this house for himself, his wife, Mathilde, and their son, Ramses in Ledeberg, near Gent Belgium. The use of concentrated blocks of colour help break up banks of dark timber kitchen units. When self control is used colour pops out and visually has tremendous impact within a room. Here sky blue is used in the washing up area and lime green for the opposite work surface creating a busy area feel soothing and stress free.
