An apartment in Nagatacho, Tokyo, has gotten a hypersaturated candy-colored makeover courtesy of English designer Adam Nathaniel Furman.
The 1,700-square-foot, three bed, two bath unit is a sumptuous study in material contrasts that aims to ameliorate some of the mundanity of everyday home life.
The unit’s programming is organized around its central spaces, the living room, and kitchen, and color is used to delineate each element. Pastel pink cabinets in the kitchen sit alongside a hand-finished spruce wall divider, as baby-blue countertops meet a herringbone backsplash rendered in iridescent turquoise tiles. Ceramics that mimic the colors found throughout the space line the living room’s white shelves, providing pops of vibrancy and complexity even in the more “restrained” spaces.
