We were recently commissioned to revamp the Melrose Home, which aims to provide a supportive environment for children between the ages of 4 to 18 years old, These are children whose parents or family members are unable to provide care for them and hence require supervision and protection in a residential setting.
And what better ways than using colors to design a space to win the kids' hearts? Children are often drawn to bright and cheerful rooms, and we planned the palette of colors based on that belief.
For example, yellow and purple compliment each other perfectly and make a great choice for an uplifting (yet not kiddish) interior for the older children. A soothing blue mixed with a playful green balances tranquility with playfulness for the young. A light apple green hue freshens up the original dim and narrow common corridors.
It is hoped the revamp will create a better living and study environment for the children.
