Bridges : Heloiza Montuori
What does one think of rental homes? They are usually plain, boring and come with perfunctory features. Not in the case of Heloiza Montuori, who has a predilection for interior design and home decoration. The feisty and affable Brazilian, who has a home in Singapore, was commissioned to do up this flat in the financial district of Sao Paulo. She envisioned it to be warm, colourful, lived-in and most importantly, rich in personality. Heloiza beams, “A home is nothing without serious thought about its objects, spatiality and the smaller details that make you feel welcomed. You can have four bland walls and throw in furniture and that does not make it a home. You need to be mindful about what engages the denizens – colour, shape, details and textures. It’s all about an experience.”
