Colour bleeds from artwork into the interiors of these São Paulo homes, pooling into accent furniture, upholstery and decor. While there is emphasis on art toys, figurines, modern sculpture and wall art, the interiors have become living masterpieces in their own right. The blaze of hot colour accents is cooled with raw concrete. A sobering grey backdrop prevents the riot of multicolour from appearing childish or circus-like, and instils a sophisticated thread of cohesivity. Each home has been expertly designed by Guilherme Torres to be both fun and fierce, youthful yet structured. Layouts are skillfully curated to let each artful piece of design to have its moment to shine.
The first interior is a 248 square metre property with an open plan living area. Bright works of modern art are hung around the perimeter of the white and concrete room, with art toys and sculpture jostling through the middle ground.
The dining room chandelier is a sculptural piece in itself, made out of paper note pages.
Different coloured decorative vases add vibrancy to the grey dining table and the dining area’s raw concrete decor.
Our next interior is a much smaller home, measuring 86 square metres. A unique recessed light track design snakes up the concrete wall and ceiling, making the industrial grey room appear lighter and larger.
There’s not a lot of space for rotating on the Magis Spun chair, but it looks cool at the base of the light track and art wall.
A coffee table book collection scatters more colour into the grey based living room. A characterful Hanno the Gorilla toy has taken up residence on a copy of Dot Dot Dash!, a designer toy and character art book.
Under cabinet lighting highlights the sheen of a chrome kitchen faucet.
Another light strip feature cuts up through the concrete, burning brightly by a wall mirror.
This 350 square metre house has a wonderfully open and airy feel thanks to huge windows that surround the living room on all sides. A red lounge chair set makes rich colour contrast with the lush green garden views through the glass. A modern floor lamp gives the lounge layout some height.
A small side table and a set of poufs bring orange accents into the lounge, which make perfect companions to the cooler teal hue across the upholstered sofa and a teal dining room pendant light in the background.
The rectangle dining table is concrete to match the floor. Wooden Wishbone chairs vibe with the plant life outside of the dining room’s picture window.
A concrete staircase climbs between floors, lit by LED stair lights.
Thanks to the vivid colours of the custom furniture, bright children’s toys meld easily with the decor. Green accent chairs pull colour into the centre of the room, along with brightly printed scatter cushions.
Wood panelling has also been used to recess the TV and speakers, along with associated wiring. A glass vase of greenery makes a fresh addition to the wall of dark wood grain.
Real tangerines add a natural accent inside the modern fruit bowl centrepiece.
Decorative vases perfectly match an aqua blue console.
