A tropical heatwave and the love for all things Brazilian has hit our interiors this summer, so we’re exploring the vibrant Brazilian culture and style. A visit to the beautiful Rio de Janeiro is on the bucket-list for many of us. The buzzing metropolis enchants with its breath-taking views and the colourful cultural mix. Here’s a way to integrate Brazilian culture and the Olympic colours into your home without moving off your sofa… OK, there might be some moving around involved.

Exotic Beauties

When it comes to design, Brazilians draw the inspiration from the nature. Animal prints and natural forms are the way to go. Combine the vivid reds and leafy greens with few hints of black for an eye-catching look that will add an exotic charm to your room.

Our Replica Circa 1949 Small Red Pendant Light resembles a bright tropical flower and will definitely become a central feature of any room. The sleek circular metal plates have a bold red exterior and a glossy white interior to ensure a bright & practical illumination. Our Red Flexi Neck desk Lamp would be a great choice for a more subtle accent lighting. Make sure to integrate leafy pints and greenery.

Sophisticated minimalism

This look will make you feel as if you were sat on the coast of the blissfully quiet Prainha Beach. Mix different shades of blue with monochromatic décor elements for a relaxed glam look.  Our Belbo 1 Light Optic Glass Ceiling Pendant features a reflective smoke glass shade that will create a soft and tranquil ambience in your room.

Mixing different textiles and prints will add a touch of interest to your room. Also don’t forget about adding tropical plants to create that Rio feel.

Banana Leaves

Go for sunny hues to warm up your interior and brighten your mood. Yellow is such an inspiring and warm colour to add to your home. Our Tiffany Range lights are a great choice if you are looking for a way to create a welcoming ambience and add a touch of rustic charm to your space… Or if you’re more of a modern minimalist kind of person how about our Philips Ecomoods pendant light that will brighten your room and help you save on energy bills.

Natural materials, such as wood and linen will compliment this look and create an organic feel. Oversized plants are great for recreating tropical looks, so don’t forget to grab a palm tree next time you’re out and about.
