An apartment in Brazil defined by luxury and eclecticism

Eclectic interior designs are very popular. They’re a very nice choice when the client either doesn’t have a clear idea of what he or she wants or when the preferences can’t be restraint to a single style. Most of the times, an eclectic interior features a combination between old and new elements and it’s a sort of transition from vintage to modern. In the case of this apartment, the combination is between luxurious and simple elements.

The apartment is located in Brazil and it was designed by architect Henrique Steyer from Albus Design. The clients were a young couple that enjoys travels and have been around the world. They wanted their home to reflect that and they wanted to incorporate multiple influences in the interior design. They wanted lots of cultural references to be included in the décor and they didn’t want to have anything to do with trends and other similar elements.

This apartment is liberated from any constraints related to trends and popular choices. It’s a space where the owners have created their own world and where they’ve included all the things they like. It’s basically what any home should be like. The architect tried to create balance between all these diverse influences and references.

The overall design is a mix of stylish antiques, bold modern features and elegant classics. The décor is full of unexpected features. They include lots of elements, from accent pieces such as the curtains or the area rugs to the artwork, sculptures and furniture. There are also lots of custom features included in the design, meant to make the apartment unique and special.

Despite the fact that there are so many influences and different styles combined here, the apartment still has a harmonious and cohesive interior. That’s due to several factors, among which we can mention the use of color, the way the accent and focal points are spread throughout the apartment and the eclecticism that can be seen everywhere you look.
