Beautiful and simple use of yellow in interior design. http://is.gd/dkQIB @plethoraapp

LOVE this sunny yellow loft, what do you think, old or just fun? Loft Geeraert / dmvA | ArchDaily http://ow.ly/27aBs

The yellow seems odd but something as atmospheric as light like that is also difficult to convey in photos. It might have a much different feel in person.

The large mirrored door, however, is undeniably sweet.

Banc · July 02, 2010

Yellow.... that's brave.

Double Denim · July 02, 2010

Loving the gold toilet!

Fourtreees · July 02, 2010

Haven't seen conceptual detailing of this fortitude for a long time. Well done.

Rory · July 02, 2010

Maybe the clients brief was 'I want to feel like I'm living in an un-flushed toilet bowl.' If so they have done brilliantly well.

Felix · July 02, 2010

ugliest thing i´ve ever seen

mojokex · July 02, 2010

Feeling the yellow.

rekker · July 02, 2010

Definitely NOT yellow....other then that great space layout..simple

Rory · July 02, 2010

The yellow is so bad.

Rotterdam · July 02, 2010

I think there are some fun things in this loft. For example the big glass door. Secret passage when closed, but connects the two rooms when open. Im also curious about how the users react to the open relation between the dining and the bathroom.

The colour is interesting at first, but might later feel like yellow sunglasses you can never take off.

Sunny · July 02, 2010

seriously, they need a white piano!

edub · July 01, 2010

Why yellow?

dimz · July 12, 2010 07:38 PM

the project is in Belguim ....they dont have any sun ...so they have high depression rates .mayb owner wants some Over delighted atmosphere similar to a sunny day

maybe it´s kind of a women´s issue - can´t stand the industrial athmo without some serious spring color !
