This is what we like to call 1970s in the modern day age. When Brazil’;s Studio Guilherme Torres took on this residential renovation in Sao Paolo, they embraced the home’;s retro roots but gave it a contemporary spin. From its artfully clashing patterns and its vibrant furnishings in vintage silhouettes, this family house evokes recollections of Mom and Dad’;s residence (or based on your decade, Granny and Grandpa’;s). The home gains a present day flair by means of its total simplicity accomplished by way of sparse furnishings and substantial image windows that illuminate interiors and grace them with their sunny views. Examine it out, and make your self at residence!
All in a single eyeful, you get a glimpse of the classic tiled characteristic wall behind the dining area, this remarkable patchwork rug in a daring green hue, and eclectic aspects like the accordion side table / stool and the poufs. And the lighting! Practically nothing matches in this thoughtfully uncoordinated room.
This sky blue pine-cone pendant is the piece de resistance!
The hefty black frames encircling the huge image widows accent their vastness, and the see!
The bathroom boasts this wood floor in a classic herringbone pattern. The shape of the pattern itself is probably the only element of this room that harks back to the inspirational ’;70s era. But wood on a kitchen or bathroom floor? Not in individuals days! Otherwise, it is clean, sleek and straightforward, thanks to the crisp white palette, minimum glossy cabinets, big mirrors and an even larger window view.
A trio of spherical copper pendants reflects the space in a warm light. Beneath them, the concrete floor and a created-in, reduced-profile shelf adds a present day-industrial edge.
A set of rough concrete measures leads up towards a vivid wall splashed in fiery red, orange and peach tiles.
At the best of the stairs, the blocks transition through the spectrum to awesome tones of purples, blues and greens.
Wait… did we say “tiles? This shade-blocked backdrop is actually cabinets, offering trendy, secret storage compartments.
Echoing the rainbow adorning the walls, a pair of emerald green arm chairs and ottomans invite you to sit back and kick your feet up – the epitome of the “dad chair” but with a streamlined spin. Underfoot, the geometric blue rug brings the room to daily life.
This kids’; bedroom boasts storage cubes in retro green shades, the 2 overhead and beneath the bed – intelligent, and stylish! A honeycomb rug evokes a vintage truly feel, but in an understated way that these youngsters won’;t soon expand out of.
And here is its cute counterpart, in orange.
This bathroom, like its occupants, is a bold area featuring a sunny yellow vanity and bathtub. Floor programs:
