Entries in Brazil (58)
I've highlighted Brazilian photographer Fran Parente's work before. It's hard not to as he has snapped the work of many of Brazil's hottest architects and designers. What I love most about his work is his ability to capture the personality of these spaces. Bold, quirky, strong, theatrical and even, at times, real. Fantasy and fact. Brilliant.
This dark and moody apartment is in Rio de Janeiro may well be the nest of that spiny creature deep within the earth but no, instead it is the creation of Brazilian architectural firm Ouriço (Portuguese for hedgehog). Outside it may be bright and sunny and tropical but inside it is calm and cocooning with graphic punches and vintage finds. Love the hero wall of books, the industrial lights and the warmth of the wood. Like a den, a club, a nest.
