Reader’s home – Carolina’s typography-loving apartment

Posted on Mon, 9 Jul 2012 by KiM

Carolina had sent in an entry for a pets on furniture recently (her pooch Ella is the first pet featured here), and thought our reader’s would like to have a peek into the rest of her home. Here is a bit of info: It’s been 6 months since I moved and every corner in my place has been planned with love. I’m a graphic designer and a typography lover, so my home kind of portrays my personality. I live in Porto Alegre, in the south of Brazil. The apartment was a “group project” between the architects Luiza Kroeff and Claudia Neumann, who designed the furniture and me and my mom Maria Araci, who worked on the interior design. Carolina’s love of typography is evident in her home, and her graphic design background too as her apartment has great punches of colour and impact with white or dark walls that make furniture and artwork pop.

Love that cheerful yellow door! Also, the black wall in the kitchen makes for a perfect backdrop for all the beautiful displays. Very clean lines and warm at the same time.

Great presentation of the TV, it blends in beautifully. The kitchen is so funky and productive-looking. I love the little collections, and styling, the modern furniture against the ageless pottery and typefaces. I usually dislike the sofa/two chairs/table tableau — it's a traditional layout that doesn't match modern lifestyles — but this set-up turns the ordinary sideways, and gives it a charming old-world feel that looks comfortable for multiple uses. Beautiful apartment.

Ideias maravilhosas!!!!!!!!!!
Adorei-as todas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful apartment indeed, the pillows called my attention for the whole post.

I liked the white drapes used in the living room. It provides some sort of freshness to the room. Ideal for a small room.
