What’s up with hue?

In a city that’s characterised by apartment style living, this NYC space by Drake Anderson stands out with it’s dramatic use of colour and the clever segregation of space.
As you can see, the views aren’t amazing so the designers successfully draw our attention inwards with the central TV unit that separates the kitchen and sitting room from the more formal space in the background. The beige and stainless steel doors of the unit are a gorgeous contrast against the high gloss dark floors which feel warm in comparison to the concrete ceiling beams and walls.
The kitchen is a sophisticated little alcove set underneath concrete beams and furnished with dark joinery, mirrored splashbacks and a stunning bar which sits atop a gold leaf base and extends into a dining table with magenta dining chairs.
I would never have thought of putting magenta and orange together but the crushed velvet ottoman is stunning and works perfectly with the orange cup chair and amber hued lights over the bar. They’re welcome bursts of colour against the light grey couch which is subtly threaded with yellow to match the citrus club chairs in the foreground.
Throw in the marbled grey rug for movement and texture against the striking black and white striped coffee table and we’re done.
There are so many varied elements vying for our attention in this space and it’s testament to the skill of the designers that it all works so well together. See more from these design masters at drakeanderson.com.
