On to the interior of this home designed by Eduarda Correa, who established his architecture and design firm in 1994 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. First, a couple of notes for inquiring minds from yesterday’s post. The ceiling in the pool area is natural straw. The straw blocks surrounds a fully retractable roof! The lights in the pool area came from ABC Carpet in NYC. Throughout the house you will see a mix of high end furniture and antiques, complimented with art and lighting that adds to the Asian vibe in the decor. In case you missed part I you can read it here.
I hope you liked seeing this home. I found it to be quite special…..respectful of the land it was built on, sophisticated organic and palatial about sums it up. Warm and inviting does as well.
Today we actually had sunshine….yeah, although it was 90 and very, very humid. The temperature will rise to at least the mid 90’s for the rest of the week, and with all the rain of the last couple of months, the humidity is here to stay, especially since we are closing in on August, when this kind of summer heat is the norm. Tomorrow will probably share some of the work we have done installing and expanding some garden spaces. It will be fun to share what I have been up to. Usually at this time the lawn grass-weeds are dormant from the heat, and I have to water the containers most days. That routine usually begins in early June. So far this year I have had to water just four times….yup, four times. What a summer. The lawn is green and the surrounding hills and mountains look like broccoli …….green, green, green. Thanks for stopping by! Laters, charisse
