Interiors: House in Nakameguro

Architecture & Interiors

What more do you need, color-wise, than crisp, bright white and some earthy, light blond-colored wood? Well, for some folks, color is a necessity in home decor. Still, it’s hard to argue with how calm, relaxing, serene and peaceful this home, called House in Nakameguro, in Tokyo, Japan designed by Yoritaka Hayashi Architects in 2010, is.

It’s more than the architects just sticking to two colors; it’s the way they manipulate space in the interiors to control one’s view throughout the home. The way they incorporate the architecture as something functional for the structure’s users to utilize. It’s the way they knew where to add the space’s one color: natural wood, and how to strike the perfect balance with the white. A little too sparse for our tastes, but we appreciate it nonetheless.

What do you think about the limited color palette in this space? Too little or awesome?

      Love your opinion! I don’t know if I could actually keep myself from filling it up eventually with things, but I do really enjoy the aesthetic.

    Is clear evidence that with very few resources can make a space architecture rich in sensations, livable spaces, and full of light, color and joy.
