I suppose you remember Casa Lola that I presented you last days. Here are some decoration details of this amazing house, as I promised. Besides, the details make the difference, as well said!
Casa Lola is a rental property in Trancoso, Brazil, made by New York designer Jan Eleni. Now that the world cup finished we may look at Brasil in another view again. This vacation house completes a fantasy of relaxing in a fishing village where your everyday life is sleeping, swimming, eating fish that you catch on the afternoon and stuff like that!
Eleni and her husband worked with a local architecture/construction firm and renovated an existing cottage creating an open, airy space. The materials that are used highlight the natural environment and the localily. Concrete floors, raw wood and minimal but traditional decoration with some modern elements like photos.
In addition to the main house that they renovated, Eleni also designed a new guest house. This is my favorite!!! You will see why…
The photos are taken at the begginins, go to the site to see the rest of them!!
I will follow with another post with updated photos and if I won’t persuade you to go there my blue flamingo will loose its futhers!
Now with the world cup Brazil is in our minds all the time. Except football though and all this fuzz, Brazil has a lot of things to show us, regarding the design field. This time, I’ll show you a very artistic and bohemian little hotel in Rio! It’s situated in a vibrant Rio’s hilltop among bars and restaurants. Maria Santa Teresa is a very friendly hotel with an easy-going attitude that you can see it even from the photos.
It is a renovated, old mid-century villa and has only six guest-rooms. Exlusive but relaxed. Every room as also the amazing pool terrace also offers a stunning view across Rio, through vintage 1930’s telescopes positioned on terraces, so you can zoom in wherever you want! Personally, I loved the pool terrace of course, the simple but stylish decoration and the tropical and alternative atmosphere that exists everywhere. Also, the hotel’s special design includes one-of-a-kind design pieces. Such as antique nautical optics, local art, colourful furniture and a world-class photography collection.Their website worth a look as well! Style everywhere.
