Color Trends 2014 From Vintage Perspective

What color is in (and what’s out) in 2014? The answer to this question for a global leader in paint and coating such as Jotun is 24. Yes, Jotun provides 24 colors of paints in its Color Trends 2014 campaign, which are grouped into three themes: Travel in Style, Urban Casual, and New Comforting. Urban in Style projects elegance, warmth, and glamor, best represented by dark blue, green, maroon and purple. As for Urban Casual, it’s all about being creative, laid back and individual with orange, retro blue and grey in the color palette. New Comforting is best for those who want to have a relaxing, peaceful and simple space. This color scheme includes dew blue, tudor, edelwise, among others. For the launch event of Color Trends 2014 the Norway brand commissioned Jakarta Vintage to make an interpretation of the three themes above by designing and decorating three spaces in its launch event today. Here are the photos, styled and shot by our creative team, at our showroom/ studio at the Darmawangsa Square. How do you like it?

Vintage and the City

Living in an apartment in the heart of the city is both practical and convenient. And the interior design tends to follow accordingly: modern, clean cut, no clutter, and minimalist. This featured apartment in Senayan however is trying to “tone down” the modernism and minimalism and add some vintage, ethnic and quirky touches in the decoration. Here is another vintage invasion in the modern Jakarta, in the home of a Japanese expat, Mr Akira.

A mid century cabinet, a retro telephone, a vietnamese lacquer bowl, and an abstract painting by Kukuh, all go together in the living room.


The jug and vase are …street contribution to the modern apartment.

A dressmaker’s dummy in Indian traditional vest mixes with the giant painting, darken the overly light flooded bed room.

The desk is another mid century piece. And the chair may not look comfortable but it has an iconic presence.

A poster of 1971 Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange owns the work corner.

Antlers, old books, mini statues of budha, a bowl and a retro analog camera, may not match, but they mix well.

A vintage crystal chandelier and a wing chair, both from the 80’s work alright together.

Hope you enjoy this posting. This time around not too vintageful, i know. Have a restful weekend guys:)
