Total white is one of the most en vogue interior trends around at the moment.
White is a versatile colour that adapts to any type of space, bringing different rooms together and breathing life into them. It makes a room feel bigger, reflects natural light and injects brightness and elegance into any space. From the living room to the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and even the garden, white plays out its starring role with understated sophistication.
In order to show you the potential of a total white space, we want to shine a light on two projects from architect Glória Papp (P-Art Ltd. / TNA Studio Ltd.), which illustrate the very best of the trend. Both projects use a bright white flooring featuring the Thassos and Bianco Assoluto colours to stunning effect.
Architect and interior designer Glória Papp won the first prize at the eighth edition of the Grand Prix with her “Private Villa” project. She also came second in the residential category at the 11th edition with “E House”.
Private Villa (Budapest, Hungary)
In this private villa in Budapest, the formal rigour of the exterior is reflected in the compositional simplicity of the internal architecture. The rationalist design of the project is underlined by the geometric, monochrome use of ceramic.
Following a strict pattern, the porcelain stoneware tiles follow the lines that split up the villa. The homogenous white of the ground floor, created using 60x60 cm in Bianco Assoluto with the polished finish, creates a sense of uninterrupted fluidity between the various rooms of the house.
E House (Egerszalòk, Hungary)
Bright white, acid-etched doors and sliding walls make for a unique, dynamic domestic space. The use of ceramic in a soft, compact shade of white – Thassos from the Marte collection – helps to create a sophisticated neutrality which complements the simple design of the house.
