When designing the FM house in São Paulo, Brazil, Mombá Arquitetura referred to vaporwave, a subgenre that alludes to the 80s and 90s. While electronic music was the main inspiration, Vaporwave was also known for its surreal art and consumer culture, all of which led the range of surfaces, colors and shapes.
The 72-square-foot interior has been updated with modern furniture and a vibrant palette to coexist with the original features such as the white tiles on the walls and granite flooring. The dining room has been furnished with finds from antique shops and travel as well as contemporary design pieces and a catchy gallery wall. White tile walls are an unusual solution for a dining area. The kitchen is equipped with simple green cabinets, a countertop made of white stone and two different backsplashes – made of blushing and white tiles.
The living room shows a combination of blue-green and white, which initially creates a striking contrast. The Tetris sofa makes a bold statement in the middle of the open space and helps to divide the space between the sitting area and the office. A glazed wall offers a cool view and lots of potted green creates the feeling of being outside. The bedroom has cozy, soft pink walls and a light blue headboard with pillows, paired with bold accent pillows and geometric bedding.
