From the get go, the design brief for this Porto Alegre house was to create the ideal home for the modern man. Rich wood tones native to Brazil keep black and white monochrome settings perky and fresh. Meanwhile, snappy pops of color in the furniture add character to this contemporary bachelor pad.

Laying out the design palette for this house, you can see the white meets black fittings of the home. A blend of materials merge together – namely wicker, wood, glass, metals and cement – for a visually rich aesthetic.

The open plan format is well aligned with textures and colors. In addition, wide windows provide plenty of sunlight, and stylized lighting highlights different pockets of space.

The dining area features a slick black table and chair collection, offset against the deep browns of the wood wall.

There are a lot of leather sofas out there, but few so well paired with lush emerald pillows and ruby red tones. It’s a low slung sofa, made especially for lazy days and contemporary styling.

The wood used throughout is known as Pau Ferro, or Bolivian Rosewood. Notice the textured panels, which were stained to bring out the strong wood patterns.

While the black and white of this Brazilian home is fun, the bookshelves call for a splash of color. The books are horizontally layered, displaying the home owner’s curated collection of tchotchke.

The service area was knocked down and refurbished. It’s been transformed into a galley kitchen, with an overall timeless masculine ambiance.

The space which used to be the kitchen is now a dining room, so there is a great flow from one area to another, making it an easy space to cook and entertain. As a result, what used to be a compartmentalized apartment became a bright and large space with few rooms.

In the more private quarters of the home, three bedrooms were altered into two: a master bedroom and a study that also doubles as a guest bedroom.

It was at the request of the clients that the apartment adopt darker tones, but the mix between dark marble and matte grays is balanced by the gentler white and cream colors

The rooms were given a uniform composition of black, gray and Pau Ferro wood to ensure there were no hierarchies. Indeed, all elements of the house maintain the same conceptual and visual value, making it the perfect contemporary bachelor pad for the modern man.
