Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

How does your bank look like? Well, just like a bank, right? Boring? Well, who’s actually looking for fun while banking? It seems that some people got tired of “serious” and “boring” banks.

Sugamo Shinkin bank of Tokyo, Japan decided to hire architect Emmanuelle Moureaux to change the way people in Japan do their banking. They wanted to create a fun and cheerful ambience while you decide what to do with your money. Their theory is that a more friendlier design will not make them lose their credibility with the costumers, but actually attract them.

What do you think? Would you like to bank in a “rainbow bank” or would you still prefer a more serious space? Is the “Rainbow Mille-Feuille Bank “Cool or Fool”



Happily banking.

Having Fun

Why not?

Just Relax

The environment is supposed to make you feel happy and relaxed.


Would you complain if you had to wait in this fun room?


It’s fun even on the ceiling.


The architect designed the skylight so you can see it from any level of the bank.


Wow! This looks more like a nightclub! What do you think? 🙂


Let’s get the party started!

What do you think? Do think a fun bank like this would attract more people? Would you change your bank to a bank like this one?

I’m just wondering if they also serve cocktails… wouldn’t that be cool? 😉

Have a very blessed weekend, my friends. See you back here on Monday!

And to all Beautiful Mommies out there: Have a Happy Mother’s Day!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

    Normalmente mexer com dinheiro só é divertido e prazeiroso na hora de fazer uma boa compra.
    Por que não tornar divertida também a ida ao banco, sem aquele clima austero e aquela decoração super impessoal e fria?
    No mínimo fica mais light, não acha?

  2. I can’t believe this is a bank! I personally think it’s so cool! I would love to do my banking here!

  3. I will go with cool….its kind of neat, its happy and uplifting. I would enjoy walking in and taking in the pretty colors, and the happy vibe. I think its actually really neat, and a nice departure from the boring old gray, blue and black predictable colors of banks….they all look the same. I love the idea that someone is deciding to change things up a bit…so this one gets a cool thumbs up from me!

  4. Reminds me of a college student union. I like it. But I love the people working at my bank. You find the most interesting structures! I know it is a lot of work and we appreciate it so much.
    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO YOU–you great mom!

    Oh wow, I kind of like it….A LOT!
    Although I have to say, part of me would be looking over my shoulder the entire time waiting for the cast of “LAUGH IN” to come shimmy dancing through the lobby.
    Super fun!

  6. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    Not my style at all.

    Lu, have a lovely weekend and happy Mother’s day to you. I’ll see you next week….

  7. Carrie @ Hazardous Design said,

    So cool! Why do banks have to always be so boring and stuffy?

  8. Sheila Zeller said,

    This is very fun. I like the exterior, and the colourful seating, but the starburst suzanis take it one step too far for me… even so, I say ‘cool’ this week!!!
    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day Luciane 🙂
    xo Sheila

    Not sure if I would bank there, but it is kind of neat. Definitely very bright and cheerful looking. I will have to go with cool on this one. You are right though, it does kind of look like a nightclub.

  10. SizzleandZoom said,

    Cool. I had to smile at the second photo and when I saw the third photo I knew I liked it. Nice landmark. I never lose my way to the bank. Happy Mother’s Day to you, too.

  11. Kristin said,

    Hi Luciane, thanks for stopping by and leaving the sweetest comment! You make me smile 🙂 I would definitely go for that rainbow bank. How nice and colorful! I am doing fine! Thanks for asking. Right now I’m back to being a stay home mum and I just loooove it! Just having time to clean around the house, plan healthy meals and no stress….make me just so happy! Have an impossibly lovely weekend!!!

    you already know i love the way you think…of course COOOOOOOOOOL. it’s so happy and cheerful and the employees have to be in a good mood. and yes, cocktails. let’s have appletinis to start.

    btw i’ve always thought the addition of cocktails to parent-teacher conferences would be quite welcome for all parties, yes?

    come visit and see the french vintage lovely i scored at a fab shop in France i discovered!

  16. Nichole@40daysof said,

    Cool! I worked in banks for many years, and I would have loved to work in a building like that.

  17. Kathy said,

    Absolutely love it, very fun and unexpected!

  18. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    Regardless of whether or not I like this style, it has to be better than the normal all-beige bank! I find it very refreshing!
