Friday Fun: Tropicalia

There was a musical movement called Tropicália born in Brazil in 1968, very dear to my heart. So, to pay homage to this soul jazz/bossa nova musical legacy, I chose a lot of Brazilian websites to find what one might call ‘tropical’ house decor.

Especially if you have the climate for this indoors/outdoors house, created by Jacobsen Arquitetura in Brazil.
A house that seems to go on (and open up) forever, from
A mountain backdrop for this dining room from
Looks a bit like the longhouses of the Trobriand Islanders, from
Magical swing on a porch at this hotel in the Philippines, from
And here is another swing, in the house of Donna Karan on the Turks and Caicos Islands. From Architectural Digest.

  1. Oh, this is beautiful, Marina Sofia! Such a lovely combination of indoors and outdoors! It reminds me the place where my husband and I stayed when we were on our honeymoon in the Bahamas – magical! That dining room is to die for.
