    Default A Pattern-Packed Pied-à-Terre

    A fearless Brazilian designer’s surprisingly soothing Manhattan getaway
    Located on a leafy street in Manhattan's West Village, the apartment building—all brown brick and dull stonework—is not the loveliest of edifices. And the hallway outside the door is dimly lit and colored a creepy yellow, as if it might once have served as a set for Law & Order: SVU. But all that drabness is forgotten as soon as the door opens to Sig Bergamin's abode. The place—a brash mix of colors, prints, and styles—practically jumps out and hugs you.
    Bergamin, a São Paulo–based architect and designer, has filled his small one-bedroom home with items that swing wildly in temperature and mood: pillows and curtains in joyous ikat-printed fabrics, a stark white sofa, a curved chair upholstered in a somber dark purple velvet and a bright floral pattern, a dark Chinese wood armoire, a boldly patterned blue-and-white rug.

    Good god, how awful. Cramped and cluttered. All the pictures on the wall make the place look even smaller. And the portrait of Madge, lol! Hate the rugs and drapes big time.

    I can't see one thing in there that I like. Then again that could be because my eyes start to water if I stare at it for longer than a few seconds.
