    Default Modern Apartment in Brazil

    Hypnotizing Mix of Colors and Textures Displayed by Modern Apartment in Brazil

    Welcome to a colorful apartment with plenty of interesting features. Located in a building planned by architect Oscar Niemeyer in the central region of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the loft was recently added a new vibrant feel.

    There's a lot that I love in this apartment. So many designers use little color and not much character in the modern technique. Here I see some history and lots of color thrown in...it's cheerful, life should be cheerful.

    It's a "Smeg" type fridge? Smeg?

    The tile work in the bathroom is a little over the top and I would probably walk into that exposed pipe every frigging day (more than once), but I love everything else about this.

    I agree. Although our own home has a white base, we do use color on furniture and accessories. Most people seem to forget that. This apartment is fun, it's quite original in its color use and although it's about 90% not my style and I don't like all of it (YELLOW) it is an inviting place.

    These are not the colors I would choose, but I like the use of color. I also have noticed that diff colors work in some regions and not in others (IMO, and also just in various spaces), and it seems to have something to do with the sunlight, is it cool or warm or strong or weak, and what tones are reflected into the room from the surrounding environment? In other words, I've had to somewhat adjust what I like to suit where I am.

    i think it's a fucking ugly technicolor mess. not all the pieces are ugly but all together it's jut a disaster. i don't know how anyone can live in a space with so many colours and so much going on. i'd feel constantly stressed out and on edge.
