This apartment, located in Moema, São Paulo, Brazil, is a contemporary home with striking color accents by designer Brunete Fraccaroli. Against a background of clean pure white, she has set up bold contrasts: a neon yellow wall surrounding an entertainment center; vivid teal blue to set off the dining area; green bottles on a black kitchen/dining shelving unit; and much more. The major color scheme in the apartment is the mix of bright yellow, lime, and teal, set against accents of black. Lime green contemporary dining room chairs set on a black-and-white zebra-striped rug; bright yellow glass art accents mirrored and brass tables in the living room; a kitchen table is black, while the chairs pop against it in bright yellow. The mood overall is lively, fun, and energetic.
But there are also restful spots here. A reflecting wall with rock accents steadies the lime green and zebra stripes; a bedroom sports a true-blue abstract seascape wall over a bed in soothing off-white. Tucked away are a desk and chair in subtle brown, lit by recessed lighting, against the teal wall. And the bath provides clean contrast with pure white tub and sink against yellow-tiled walls and countertops. Living room seating is soft teal, the rug gentle gray. The streamlined kitchen, while full of reflective surfaces, also affords a spot of relief from too much bright color, and ample glass doors and windows soften what could be a stark effect with diffused outdoor light. The apartment is a lively place for entertaining — and a place where color enriches even quiet moments.
