Today’s house tour is courtesy of Yatzer, a site I spend way too much time on. The home belongs to one, Mauricio Arruda, a Brazilian architect and designer whose work has been featured in a number of design rags like Casa Vogue and De Zeen.
His home is filled with the veritable classics of mid-century modern design, his own designs, as well as some uniquely Brazilian tchotchkes.
Arruda knocked down all the walls but this central pillar (seen below), which allows a bucket full of sunshine into the entire apartment…
Here’s another view: window-facing…
Shown here is Arruda’s rather tongue-in-cheek creation, House of Cards Table.
And now we come to my two favorite areas in this apartment…the mini-bar (obviously) and the bedroom.
A close up of the bar and this bizarre, yet intriguing, poster. Arruda has an interesting taste in art, to say the least.
