I’m in love with this brazilian beach house. Actually, I’m in love with all of Brazil, their music, their food, the beaches, jungles, dunes, people and their homes!
I love their ease in integrating nature into houses, and how they manage to merge interior and exterior. We can see in this beautiful house that appeared last summer in Elle Decoration UK shot by Mathew Williams. I found it through Mèchant Design.
It is the summer home of Jan and Ronnie, a couple who I envy very much. They live in New York year round and for vacation they escape to Brazil, wow!
I have a small arsenal of Brazilian homes that I have been collecting while searching inspiration for my backyard makeover. Bit by bit, I want to show you all, the houses and the process of renovating my garden, to see if you can help me with it!

This salad doesn´t really inspire me many things to tell you, so, instead of writing on and on, I´ll just go straight to the point: refreshing and light, perfect for balancing out when our main course is kind of heavy.
I love overalls, whenever I see one in a store I try it on without hesitation, and they ALL look so bad on me! I was begging to think that it was the actual tailoring of dungarees that just made them imposible to look good on. But then, I run into this denim overall from Zara, I tried once more, and to my surprise it looked really cute! If you want to look for it, it´s in the stores right now, and it´s very similar to the one on the first picture.
After buying it, I´ve been doing some research and it turns out to be a trend from last year. I leave you a few pictures of cute overall looks, tell me if you get yourselves one!
First time I tried ceviche I wasn´t very sure what to think. I was with my husband in Costa Rica, having lunch in a ramshackle hut in the middle of the jungle, and we both had the same odd feeling. Three days later we very sure we loved ceviche!
A couple of years after that we spent two weeks in a tiny island from Honduras Continue reading →
