A few months back simone had left a comment about a site called RIOetc that features “hipster houses in Rio de Janeiro”. I had totally forgotten about it until recently and I was pleasantly surprised to find not necessarily what I would call “hipster” homes but some really fun and creatively decorated spaces. The site was started back in 2007 by Renata Abranchs (fashion consultant) and Tiago Petrik (journalist). At the time Rio had a bad rap so they wanted to praise their beautiful city through its inhabitants and their creative capacity in a positive, colourful way (or something along those lines says Google Translate). And they feature all sorts of other Rio goodies like streetstyle, music, and street art. My fav new site!
