Yes – your urban walls can stay modern and fresh without turning your home into Hell’s Kitchen
Harmony, comfort, serenity. These words are seldom heard on the busy streets of our major cities, but they are the emerging pipedreams of many workers pounding the keyboards in offices around the globe. Whilst the sights and sounds of the metropolis remain exciting and awakening, people are gravitating towards a more tranquil home life that allows them to relax and recharge the batteries.
The Queens Collection by Rasch delivers the perfect balance for the dedicated city-dweller. This collection is not is not a complete departure from urban design, but seeks to weave key elements of metropolitan living into a more harmonious blend of themes and pastels.
All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don’t. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity – Robert Kennedy
The collection is both serene and smart. Take the cityscape design for example… step up close and you can see an etched progression of multi-storey buildings, but step back and you’ll see a geometrical pattern that creates a wave like effect with great depth. Small spaces seem to open up, as if you’ve suddenly put the channel tunnel in your living room. You can complement this wall design with a series of spheres that seem to hover luminously in space, transfixing your gaze as the rat-race slowly fades away into the background.
If you prefer, you can add a touch of nature with stylised florals in various contrasts. Set this design against a neighbouring wall bathed in thin vertical stripes, bridging the gap with a thoughtfully lit plain wall for an overall effect that brings both vitality and poise to the room. You can even add a retro twist with a funky geometric design reminiscent of conjoined wineglasses edging their way up a feature wall. A baroque motif completes the transformation, as you leave the dark corners and cold steel railings of the city behind and saunter into your calm oasis for an cocktail or perhaps a classic novel from the bookshelf.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished – Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
