This apartment decor from the early 1970s overflowed with a bold electric blue in many different textures, materials, and surfaces from ceiling to floor, all orchestrated by interior designer Nanda Vigo.

With the homeowners’ preferred color established — actually named Space Blue — Vigo set about finding it in soft and hard surfaces.

The designer, known for her all-one-color schemes, discovered everything from blue mirror to blue Formica for what seemed like a retro living room art installation.

She also found a plush acrylic fabric — almost like stuffed animal fur — which, without a black foam lining, covered poufs, was made up into bedspreads, and used for some upholstery.

With the foam backing, that same fuzzy material became a liner for walls, floors, the backs of sofas — changing the codes of decorating as well as blue-ing everything.

Blue carpeting existed where there would normally be fabric, and mirrors existed where paint was the norm.

The living room with electric Space Blue carpeting wall-to-wall while all the furniture was designed by Vigo.

The multipurpose, built-in furniture looked like part of the architecture. Beds doubled as sofas, armoires were built into the beds, and the lighting was built into the all-blue tables. Sofas made up of movable upholstered blocks were built into long L-shaped cabinets with blue mirrored doors.

The ceiling art was a mirrored design by Milanese sculptor Enrico Baj — neon lights framed it at different levels.
