Add splashes of color
Brazilians are no strangers to color. They take their cue from nature’s inexhaustible color scheme and use bold colors in every corner of their home. Start incorporating this idea into your own home with small splashes of color, like a throw pillow or bold blanket.
Use natural elements
Wood, sisal, jute, stone and other natural elements shine as the centerpieces of decor and furniture in Brazilian homes. A reclaimed wood coffee table or a sisal area rug are easy ways to bring in a natural element to your space without feeling overwhelmed.
Less is more
Brazil is a place of abundant beauty in the outdoors, so Brazilians tend to keep their homes sparse and uncrowded. They clear surfaces of unnecessary decor and instead focus on having a few items they truly love, like a unique vase or a candle holder.
With all the gorgeous plant life in Brazil, it’s hard not to want to bring that beauty inside. Brazilians love to include plants outside and inside their home, and this may include some big, bold ferns instead in a pretty pot or an array of delicate succulents.
Brazilians love to take any party or gathering outside – nearly every home includes a deck or patio area with a special Brazilian barbecue area. Incorporating this trend into your home is easier than you think – set up a comfy chair or two in your favorite sunny corner of your yard, or even within your home next to window. The idea is to get connected with the outdoors in small moments.
Set up a corner for R&R
Hammocks, or redes in Portuguese, are ubiquitous throughout Brazil. You’ll see them on tons of patios and decks, and they’re even hung right by the front door. A hammock is another easy way to bring a sense of Brazil’s laidback vibe into your home.
