Have I got your attention yet? Although Brazilians like New York City and have purchased plenty of very expensive property with incredible NY city views, many as vacation homes, here is one client, of architect and interior designer Eduardo Correa that built a home that would be difficult to leave, even for vacation.The home sits in the mountains and is located in Morro do Chapeu, Bahia, Brazil. The liberal and amazing use of stone and wood makes for a rustic but extremely sophisticated interior, with spacious and lofty rooms, yet a degree of intimacy not usually seen in homes of this size. Even after editing this palatial yet warm home, there were so many delicious photos I have to do this in two parts, one today and another tomorrow.
Although a huge home the architect has brilliantly scaled the spaces using geometry throughout to break up the mass of floors, ceiling and walls. The scale of the architectural details such as the columns and the wood ceilings creates a wow factor, second only to the view. This home takes your breath away with its setting.
I hope I have left you looking forward to seeing the interior of this house. The architect, whose firm also did the interiors, will not disappoint. Thank you for stopping by! Laters, charisse
