The Chameleon Villa in Spain changes its appearance to create a new mood just like the Chameleon lizard does to become camouflaged with its surroundings, only that this house does it by using a hi-tech LED lighting scheme. The owner can change the chosen color every day, every hour or every minute because each room has been designed as a blank box, on which the smart lighting can splash color.

This marvelous house is located in the exclusive area of Son Vida, Mallorca and enjoys sweet views over the sea, city and the harbor of Palma. This three-floor home boasts ten bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a TV room/home cinema, a library and a wine cellar.
