Color Control

Controlling color in an environment is something we all accomplish when we paint a room. How do you think you would like to live in the apartment pictured below? The color changes in the surrounding landscape influenced the selections.

Plenty of people organize their belongings by color, but this apartment in Stockholm, Sweden might be the only home that is entirely color-coded. The artists and architects involved in this unique color scheme drew their inspiration from the surrounding trees and plants which themselves cycle through a series of colors with the changing of seasons.

"Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each."
 Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

Perhaps Thoreau would have enjoyed this apartment as his Walden.
