A young couple, parents of two children, decided to redesign the apartment with a more modern and cozy touch. Following the contemporary style, the apartment located in the Bela Vista neighborhood, in São Paulo, underwent some interventions with the coordination of the architect Thais Kalitin .
It took four months of work, enough to renovate the entire property and make it look like the family. The big priority was the room for the baby that was about to be born. The little room was designed in a Scandinavian style with modern features, emphasizing simplicity and comfort with little ornamentation. The color chosen was gray, and applied to the walls with wallpaper – a piece with a 3D effect on one of them gives an even more modern touch. The carpentry was reused and only a few details were added, such as the panel below the window that gained LED tape and an internal change in the wardrobe.
In order not to let the light on the baby, a closed crown molding was designed, making the ceiling smoother and lighter with light fixtures, round reflector center and dichroic spots in specific places. Check out the project:
Room that values comfort
The TV room was one of the environments that received a radical change. The room received a wooden panel, rack, upholstery and different curtains. For the family’s comfort and convenience when watching a movie or favorite show, fluffy pillows and a plush rug. The low rack accommodates all electronics and runs along the entire length of the panel. As the space destined for the living room is small, narrower, all the pieces used (sofa, rug, rack and panel) have the same measure, which help to give the feeling of a larger environment.
Specific place for meals
The composition of this dining room refers to a modern and elegant decor. With a decoration thought out in the smallest details, the architect opted for chairs covered with a fabric with a Chevron print, which is so popular today. The legs of the chairs, in the natural tone of the wood, match the floor and help create harmony in the place. In the background, the wall received photos of family trips in black and white.
A corner for the bar
The family loves to have friends over for a nice chat. Therefore, this corner was thought out with great care, to house all the necessary items for a relaxed meeting. Made to measure, the furniture was divided into three parts: on top, several niches received decoration objects, the top of the wedding cake of the residents, a set of glasses for liqueur and a decorative decanter to store the corks of the drinks that have already been sockets. The mirrored central part has a corner for drinks, goodies and even a coffee machine. And in the lower part, an air-conditioned wine cellar and a cupboard, which stores the dishes for snacks, glasses and glasses.
Space for the home office
Those who work from home need a dedicated space to focus on work and stay focused so productivity is always at its peak. This corner of the house is a perfect office, with a comfortable chair, a desk in the right size and a woodworking shelf designed to house all the necessary items, both stationery and computers. Organizer boxes help keep everything in place, and a desk lamp pops up to keep working late into the night from bringing eyestrain.
Gray for the girl’s room
Super modern, this baby room escapes the conventional by joining points of Scandinavian architecture with contemporary by opting for the use of gray in most of the project. White appears as well, and it is he who balances the gray in the room. With Montessori touches, the place received shelves of books that can quickly be accessed by the owner of the room, as soon as she takes her first steps. On the opposite wall, a 3D effect wallpaper brings even more modernity. The lighting was thought out with great care, and appears with an LED strip on the panel below the window and on the lamp line next to the changing table. Next to the breastfeeding armchair, a garden seat serves as a side table. The only bright spot of color in the room is the rug, in a burnt pink hue.
All white, the bathroom appears to be even larger than its full size. The smooth bench received a shelf just below, which stores towels in specific baskets. The inside of the shower has a new tile, a square, which gives a slight retro touch, and a niche that helps to organize the products for the bath time.
And the baby… grew up!
The three-year-old son’s room was readjusted for the boy’s age, prioritizing literacy in decoration. The crib gave way to the bed, to accompany the changes of age. Other changes were made, such as the wallpaper, joinery, curtain and ceiling lighting.
nook of love
For the couple’s bedroom, the request was a cozy, neutral and sophisticated environment. With that in mind, the architect used and abused colors in adornments and bedding. Highlighted lighting, beautiful wallpaper and a sweeping curtain complete the decor.
A beautiful decoration project doesn’t just happen in newer and more spacious properties. Even an older apartment, in the hands of good professionals, becomes a “magazine cover”.
