Colorful Chevron House by Andy Martin Associates
Chevron house reminded us of GMG House by Pedro Gadanho because of its bold colors that are use throughout the house. This classic Edwardian home was renovated by Andy Martin Associates who were instructed to use color in the design which resulted in color blocks throughout the house contrasting with neutral ceilings and walls.
Colorful Chevron House Interior
The clients brief to use colour extensively was applied in such that the walls and ceilings are left light in colour (off white) and that only elements or interventions (joinery etc) would be strongly coloured giving the house a lighter atmosphere with greater sense of perspective.
Chevron house includes jointed living and dining rooms adjacent to the eat-in kitchen that’s not divided from the living space with doors which results in open layout.
The Andy Martin Associates removed walls to achieve this open layout and enhanced space using color to separate different zones. Thus the kitchen is red and green featuring red floors and cabinetry and green tabletops. The living area is designed in yellow and white.
The bedroom is designed in white but the wardrobe is painted in bright purple which gives the room a pop of color against the neutral walls and wooden floors. The bathrooms also got color treatment. One of the bathrooms’s floor is tiled with red and blue square tiles while the shower enclosure is tiled with blue tiles. Another bathroom is tiled in lime green and lemon yellow tiles against white walls and ceiling. The third bathroom is entirely tiled in lime green.
The house looks lively and such bold use of color is tricky to handle. The designers used materials that looked great in different colors and the furnishings look great.
