Modern ethnic home in Brazil

This house has to be the most successful showcase of what the modern ethnic design means to me; sleek, subtle, exotic and fresh. Usually, when talking about ethnic decoration we have in mind a mixture of Bollywood, Morocco and hidden African civilizations. That is thousands of colors (usually bold) and folkloric accessories cramming up the place and make it look like a loud and cluttered interiors festival. I could never live in such a place (without losing parts of my sanity, that is). But modern ethnic? Oh, that's definitely my cup of tea. A delicate canvas of natural hues with doses of pure whites on the background, extended sleek stucco surfaces, quiet usually built-in cabinetry and shelving, unfinished woods and rustic furniture in small amounts, large openings and a subtle reference to local traditions through sparse accessories and had picked decorative accents.

You can't miss the necessary influences by the industrial decor, like this thrifted green tray cart.

I completely love this all gray stucco shower, with the floor cavity used as a handmade tub.

Oh, please, I want a crocheted hammock waiting for me right outside my bedroom!


P.s. I had posted about this house about a year ago. Obviously I can't have enough of it!
