Airy Sao Paulo Apartment Gets Playful With Print And Texture

Full screen

Brazil is a vibrant and colourful country, and architect Diego Revollo has designed a Sao Paulo apartment that’s equally eye-catching. What it lacks in colour the 360˚ Apartment makes up for in abundant texture and bold print.

The focal point of the space is the kitchen, which was outfitted in Italian porcelain tile that covers the floor then continues up the walls and onto the ceiling. The muted grey and white palette ensures that while the room is undeniably daring, it doesn’t veer into psychedelic territory.

The colour scheme continues into the main living area, which is partially open to the kitchen, and throughout the rest of the apartment. Shades of grey are paired with warm woods and metals, and mixed with a variety of interesting textures. Plush velvet chairs create an alluring clash next to other minimalist furniture and sleek copper details.


Also of note is the balcony, which was added and designed as an extension of the living room. The same tile from the kitchen is used on the balcony floor to tie the spaces together and add an extra dash of audacious design.
