Furnish in black white and gray: House in Brazil with interior in non-colors

Who said that non-colors like black, white and gray are boring? Especially in interior design, they form the perfect neutral background for creative decorations, give the room depth and create exciting contrasts. We present you a project from Brazil, where modern aesthetics meets traditional interior design principles. The timeless elegance of the interior in black and white adds to the charm of the next minimalist home in Brazil. Located in a densely populated area, this narrow urban villa has a lot to offer.

Furnish living room in black white and gray: The basic principles of an interior in non-colors.

Furnish living room and kitchen with dining area in non-colors like black white and gray

A living room in black white and gray exudes sophistication. It is important that the walls, floor and ceiling create the appropriate background. In this case, the talented architects of Flipê Arquitetura have chosen a modern flooring made of exposed concrete. It’s easy to maintain, looks good and is suitable for high-traffic areas like the hallway and living room, as well as low-traffic spaces like the bedroom. The ceiling is also made of exposed concrete and additionally emphasizes the industrial look of the room. The white walls along with the dark wood staircase add depth to the small space.

Since the living area on the first floor is very small, the architects wanted to make the best use of the available space. To this end, they opted for an open kitchen with an adjacent dining area, a modular sofa with an integrated coffee table, and a metal room divider that doubles as a stair railing. This leaves enough free space that makes the room seem more spacious. At the same time, the interior is extremely convenient, because everything necessary for the comfort of residents and their guests is within easy reach.

At the same time, the living area is visually divided into several zones. In the lounge area, residents can make themselves comfortable on a day bed and a deep sofa. Black and white pictures on the wall set accents and lamps with adjustable arms cast focused light on the table. At the same time, the room divider houses a small collection of books, so on rainy days the living area becomes a cozy reading corner.

Furnish in black white and gray: The kitchen with handleless cabinet fronts.

The kitchen with handleless fronts is a real minimalist work of art. Behind the simple cabinet doors, there is room for kitchen appliances, accessories, cutlery and dishes, so nothing gets in the way and the small space looks neat. The cooking island with the adjacent dining table for eight provides ample work space for the amateur chefs. So nothing stands in the way of cooking evenings with friends.

To make everyone feel comfortable around the table, provides the right lighting. Steerable pendant lamps in industrial style scatter soft light and create atmosphere in the evening. They are also height-adjustable, so they can serve as task lighting for the kitchen when preparing dinner, if needed.

And if the residents do not feel like cooking after a long day of work, but just want to relax, you can watch TV. Because even a home theater system can find a place in the small urban villa in Brazil.

The living area looks bright and inviting, as large floor-to-ceiling windows let plenty of sunlight into the interior. Sliding glass doors seamlessly connect indoors and out, where a covered terrace invites you to linger outside. The outdoor area is divided into two: The patio is equipped with an outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, gas grill and sink. Then there is a bit of space left for the garden, which is protected from outside views by a high wall. Since there is not enough space left for flowers and plants, the architects decided to plant the garden wall with native climbing plants.

On the second floor there is a spacious bedroom with a bathroom. Join us on a virtual tour to see the rest of the house as well.
