House and Cottage

Closet for the whole floor: a bright and unusual house in Brazil


If you have always dreamed that in the interioryour home was dominated by bright colors and a cheerful atmosphere reigned, then you should definitely get acquainted with this mansion from sunny Brazil Brazil - the country of the sun, joyful people, green forests and carnivals. Therefore, it is not at all surprising that among all this abundance of earthly blessings in the city of São Paulo such a bright house with a stunning rich interior appeared. It is in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature and gives a positive mood not only to the owners, but also to any guest who visits this residence. An outdated 350-square-foot mansion from the 1970s was acquired by a young couple with three small children. The family decided to move permanently from ever-rainy London to sunny Brazil. Apparently, the gloomy capital bored them so much that they wanted to break away to the fullest and, with the change of country, surround themselves with a large number of cheerful colors. In this they were helped by designers from the Guilherme Torres studio.

Completely non-standard layout

This bright house has a very unusualLayout, where the living room and kitchen are located on the ground floor, and a playroom for children and bedrooms - on the first. This decision was made by the architect during consultations with customers on Skype. As a result, the old cellar got panoramic windows and became the pearl of the whole interior with access to the pool and a wonderful view of the fragrant garden.

Rainbow cabinet for the whole floor

In the living room, the center of attention is no doubtis a lacquered rainbow cabinet. It is a whole storage system, painted in all the colors of the rainbow, which creates a joyful mood and sets the dynamics for the rest of the space. A calm white was chosen as the base, which made it possible to emphasize and enhance the effect of a riot of colors. But bright colors are skillfully diluted here, the designer took them to pastel shades so that they would not be flashy. Our opinion: - If you want to include a large number of bright colors in your interior, then it is best to decorate the walls and ceiling in white, it will become a connecting link and the room will not look overloaded. And even if you are not ready for such a bold step as in this Brazilian project, and do not plan to use all the colors of the rainbow, there are a few rules to know about color combinations. You can combine 2-3 similar colors, for example green, cyan and blue. In this case, the interior will not become too flashy, but at the same time it will be bright and inviting. Or take two completely opposite colors, it can be blue and orange or purple and yellow. However, it is better not to use such a contrasting combination in the bedroom or nursery, but to leave it for the living room.

Dining table, "grown up" from under the ground

The dining room is decorated with a concrete dining table,Built during the rough construction work and personally designed by Guilherme Torres (Guilherme Torres), the head of the studio and part-time architect. And to distinguish between the living room and the reception area, a Turkish vintage carpet was used in an attractive green color. It also partially housed furniture, which the owners purchased in London and brought with them from the foggy Albion.

Corner of appeasement

It is noteworthy that in general, a bright house is differentthe presence of a rather restrained interior in the adult bedrooms. A calming green hue was chosen here, which perfectly contributes to a calm, relaxing atmosphere, because this is the defining moment for relaxation. And the presence of wooden elements adds coziness and warmth to the rooms. Our opinion: - An excellent choice of colors for the bedroom. After all, pastel shades of green are excellent at promoting relaxation and allowing you to fall asleep better. And so that this magical color does not lose its lightness, you should not overload the room with "heavy" curtains and bulky furniture. For quality rest, it is better to try to make the space airy and relaxed.

Other rooms

In turn, the children's bedrooms look colorful andfun. One of the rooms is made in marine blue-green shades, and the second - as if citrus, bright orange. The contrasty bathroom absorbed a restrained color of concrete and colorful yellow elements, which look very sunny on a neutral gray background. And perhaps, the only place where quiet colors prevail over the riot of colors is the snow-white cuisine, which seems to be the logical conclusion of the whole project. Denilson Machada,
