Brazilian Interior in Terrace2
If you feel confused when looking at the pictures of this Brazilian apartment, don’t be puzzled – it is a natural reaction. Having only 88 square meters of space at their disposal the designer’s team managed to create a very extraordinary interior. The large geometrical patterns of contrasting bold colors, lots of eco-friendly crude furniture pieces and natural illumination – all of this crammed into a small apartment!
The secret of this apartment hides in the fact that there are two distinct preferences seen in this living space: oriental and western. Large geometrical pieces are actually reminiscent of the traditional Japanese art – Origami. The crude eco-friendly bamboo furniture and incredible golden dragon wallpaper send their greetings from Chinese culture.
But why is this apartment is so Brazilian in its origin? Perhaps it is the openness of the space, lots of natural sunlight and of course the color choices. The purple origami folds over mustard yellow and rich blue hues. Those little lacquered stools are reminiscent of the drums and music, so peculiar to Brazilian culture.
Furniture is also something very extraordinary as it is very versatile. There is a classy contemporary low-rise rough linen sofa, that is placed in front of a big fireplace made of exclusive granite, then we see crude chairs and tables, which drag along the rustic appeal set against the bamboo floor covering.
Among other features that add Western charm to the apartment are: the crystal chandelier from the traditional French brand Saint Luis; the 1950’s wall lamp from Serge Mouille, and a circular shelf with beautiful koi fish vases, which send us back Japan. So, in the midst of the eclectic interior the apartment does have its own distinct character, which is seen in a balance between these two perspectives.
