I enjoy colour. Bright and bold or pastel and delicate.

So you will understand my lukewarm response to the Zeitz MOCAA’s super modern colour scheme of black, grey and neturals inside the building. The coffee shop on the 6th floor offers a superb view of the harbour and a slice of the city, but the table ware and china were yet again in that stylish palette. As you can see below.

Anyhoo: having enjoyed my tea break I popped into the Ladies’ Loo directly thereafter and OH JOY! Look what met my startled gaze: COLOUR. And plenty of it. Whoever designed the interiors of the ZM cloakrooms  had a nice sense of humour. Don’t you think?

My fave is the red. I was blown away by the vivid colours – now I want a tomato red throne in my own bathroom at home!

  1. Excellent vibe there, Alison! Love the colours…are we allowed into museums these days? I can’t keep up with the yes/no way we live at the moment

    Love the bathrooms Alison  but the china is a bit muted xxSent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

  3. Love the red bog, but I think I might sit more joyfully on the orange one….just a personal preference, don’t you know 😂

  4. Amazing! I’ve never seen boldness like that in public restrooms. I hope that this will somehow start a trend.

  5. Like you, I would like a red throne…and a basin…and a bath. Sadly, they are hard to come by in the UK. Everyone has deadly white furniture.

  6. What a delightful juxtaposition, Alison! It’s almost like the designer had a playful rebellious streak… I like it!
