Whilst the soothing serenity of neutral decor has its place and peaceful function, there is also a time for colour, personality and the unexpected. Today, we’re taking a look at three wonderfully unique & colourful home interiors that communicate quirky creativity and fabulous fun. Our first featured home interior is a vibrant purple-based Ibizan pad with futuristic curves and fashionable terrazzo decor elements. We move next to Russia, where a riveting interior decor scheme incorporates the rainbow into a small studio layout. Finally we climb to new heights of colour incorporation in a home with a bespoke red spiral staircase and a green courtyard, and a host of modern furniture inspo to match.

Often, spiral staircases are installed simply as a way to combat the issue of limited space, since they typically take up less room than a straight set. Thanks to their curvaceous shape, they are also more suited to a more centralised position without causing an awkward break in a free-flowing layout. With that said, the spiral staircase designs that we’re looking at here are either big in impact or huge in their elegant modern stature. We’ll be taking a look at narrow wheels that explode with colour, style and innovation, some larger spirals and helical staircases that cut extraordinarily beautiful and sculptural silhouettes into their surroundings, plus a selection of colossal feats of magnificent engineering.

Three unique home interiors are the subject of our attention today, each designed by Wu Zhenyu. Unusual furniture design shapes spaces that are captivating, whilst soft atmospheric lighting schemes conjure a welcoming glow. Pale grey base decor sets a serene canvas for small moments of luxe marble and subtle modern arches. Sleek wall panelling encases each one of these interesting living spaces with a high-end finish, whether that be wood tone, textured or clean white aesthetics. We’ll tour a peaceful grey, white and wood grain interior, a home with warm burgundy and lustrous gold accents, and finish up with a combo of cool blue and earthy brown infusions.

A decorative armour of geometric metal blocks builds the unique façade of this 600 square metre luxury home in Surat, Gujarat, India, designed by Openideas Architects. The form of the ‘Hive’ family home was inspired by the client’s profession in making machines for the diamond industry, and hexagonal structures found in honeycomb. An entire year’s sun path study was integral to the plotting of the decorative screen walls that characterise much of the structure. With core competency in mechanical engineering, client Kamalbhai Mistry delivered a concise 90 point brief for the unprecedented project. It would be a smart structure, rendered in metal, it would be intelligent, adaptable, sustainable, and feature a mono-space family living area.
