Tropical Baroque: a combination of bright accents of exotic interior

April 13, 2012 1


While many designers still mull over what should predominate in interior design – the elegance, brightness, or unusual elements, many choose to combine all approaches. And it’s so skillfully done that colorful details become an additional boost that impresses, but without making compromises for those with good taste. The exotic elements blend harmoniously.
Today we travel to Brazil to show you three travel home decors, published in the US version of “Architectural Digest” and “Elle Decor”. On the one hand, the interiors are created by true professionals. On the other, they have no specific pattern. They are united by a combination of exotic elements and traditional style. If you have not noticed something like this before and you are surprised, let’s meet the so called “tropical baroque”.

Actually exotics may be manifested in different ways, in vivid detail, national ornaments, strange accessories. Traditional elements could be always presented in furniture and luxurious finishes.

Look at the unusual bright interiors, they present the lifestyle in the distant Latin.
The renowned architect, designer and owner of he antique boutique loves all French things. In his villa, located in the suburbs of one of the largest cities in Brazil, he made his dream come true and combined sophisticated European tradition with elements of national decoration.
Despite the great number of antiques, the interior has nothing to do with the idea of a palace or a museum exhibit. On the contrary, we can feel the atmosphere, the passion to experiment and the results creativity.

    Are the interiors that unusually bright? I see some splashes of color in the artwork, but none of them seem to be overwhelmingly colorful. I would say that 2, 8, 11, and 12 are a little to traditional for my taste, But I really like the one featured for the article. I’d love to more about it, specifically.
