Warmly Contemporary Apartment: Apto Bras Cardoso, Brazil , by Mauricio Karam

Warmly Contemporary Apartment Apto Bras Cardoso, Brazil , by Mauricio Karam_1

This gorgeously colorful, eclectically-styled apartment is the work of architect and designer Mauricio Karam of Brazil; it’s clearly a family space, with an atmosphere and ambience any family would love to come home to. Note the warm tones used in the living room: oranges and reds set off the creamy neutrals of couch and walls, while two tapestry-print accent chairs provide a lively visual element. Framed prints on the walls, and a delightful selection of candlesticks on a carved wooden side table, give the room artistic flair without making it stuffy or formal. And who wouldn’t want to pull up a chair in the dining room, with its square table that easily seats 8? It’s a spot just made for lingering over a meal, dessert, or coffee.

By contrast, the galley kitchen is all contemporary, from white cabinets and dark walls to an abstract wall clock. Pause in the eat-in nook for a cup of fresh espresso; note the extra convenience of not only double sinks but double faucets as well. The master bedroom combines styles nicely: a neutral palette carries on to a tufted headboard and traditional bench, while quirky orange bedside lamps are pure fun. And then there’s a girl’s dream bedroom: pastel seafoam-blue walls with white tracery, and a bed that’s all bright lime green, purple…and butterflies! A handy storage unit holds both a personal TV and lighted shelves for books and colorful stuffed toys. All in all, a great mix of modern and cozy: the Bras Cardoso apartment by Mauricio Karam.
