Black wall color in interior design

I personally had experience of black paint on the walls in the Hotel Grand Ferdinand in Vienna . Here a designer created drama and theater atmosphere with a black wall and white items. I loved being in the room of the hotel ,although outside was raining inside I felt comfort .
If you don’t have a courage to paint all walls in black color , You can try darker colors in a bedroom or living room. I am recommending
to complete a design with bright furniture. Also remember about right lighting , use lighting only in places where you really need light.

The minimalist Japanese design

The sense of tranquility by Japanese architect

Today I am sharing with you a project of Japanese studio Hiroyuki Ogawa Architects ,that inspired me .The project is interior design of pharmacy.
The architect describe :” We carefully chose materials and composed space to have customers to feel “tranquil” and “kindness” . I think that they have reached their goal .
The space has clean lines and monochrome colors ,that create calm and tranquil sense.
Although the space has no windows, the good planned lighting compensates for this lack . I like this space.
