A Bright Apartment in São Paulo Designed for Entertaining by David Ito

Designed by David Ito Arquitetura, the 260-square-meter AML Apartment was renovated to maximize open spaces and natural light for clients who also requested using soft colors. The São Paulo, Brazil interior now boasts a large social area to include the living, dining, and television rooms that benefit from the wide expanse of windows. Those spaces connect to the kitchen and terrace, making it easy to entertain family and friends when they’re over.

A 12-meter-long rippled wall separates the private areas from the public ones with a folding door that opens up the space. White walls, curtains, cabinets, and countertops keep the interior light and bright while allowing the subtle colors to pop.

The crisp white surfaces are paired with warm wood throughout for a striking contrast.

The entryway is clad in wood, disguising doors to the powder room and exit.
