color blocking in the home

It seems like every fashion publication’s favorite trend of the season is “color blocking.” Really? It’s all been done before.. or at least I’ve been color blocking since the beginning of my days and I’m sure all of you have too. But here’s an idea: let’s do it in our homes! Portuguese architect Pedro Gadanho very successfully does so with this house in Torres Vedras.

It’s fun, it’s eye candy, and you probably need to have the space look impeccable at all times or else it starts looking chaotic, but isn’t that true of every home? I really love this. The colored spaces function almost as inserts into the original building, and everything around them looks very clean and neutral, or white, to be exact. The hardwood floors and the moulding are original to the house, and I like that he has preserved them. I’m such a believer in taking risks with color, I think we’d all be happier people if we did so more often. Enjoy!
