Holiday at this Brazilian escape in lush tropical gardens?

Someone stop me, I can't stop sharing tropical hide-aways. This is the third in two weeks (see the others here and here).  Soon I'm going to have to change the blog name to 'Scandinavians on holiday'. In this case the escape (or your next little piece of paradise?) is in the form of 'The Fogo Residence' a few minutes walk from Quadrado in the heart of Trancoso, Southern Bahia, Brazil. The home is split between a main villa and a pool house and decorated with a beautiful mix of local materials, wood, whitewashed walls and furniture, with one-off items designed by local craftsmen and artists to give the home a quirky bohemian vibe. It also 'has a bright blue infinity pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens' says Kid & Coe, the rental agent. And I'm sure I see a caipirinha with my name on it about you?

So beautiful - and relaxing!

Could you imagine a fortnight here?!

Get the look (yes, really!)....rattan lampshades, round (I also like this reversible one) and oblong jute mat. White linen by the yard, vintage driftwood coffee table.  This sunlounger is similar. .....pool optional!

I also love this Brazilian pool villa escape and beach house - beautiful!

Have you been to Brazil? I'm thinking it's time....

Have a dreamy day!

PS Today I have a live radio interview about with On the House at 7.30 am PST (if you feel like checking-in!).

Fab pink / grey accents in a small Stockholm pad

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend? It was super sunny here in Southern Sweden (finally), so it was all hands on deck getting our little back yard ready (inspired by these outdoor spaces!). It's amazing what you can fit into a small space - and get it to look good to. As you can see in this small Stockholm studio apartment belonging to interior and set designer Emma Wallmen, which measures a mere 23 square metres (247 square feet)! I absolutely love the colour combination: pink, grey, black and white. And of course those reclaimed glass windows used as a room divider. What a truly inspiring small space?

Fantastic Frank. Photographer: Anna Malmberg. Interior designer: Emma Wallmen. Found via La Maison D'Anna G with thanks.
Love, love love! The home is full of little surprises around every corner!

Is there something you like in particular about this home?

A few items I know and love: sleep / sitting area- I recently stumbled across these fab clothes rails, Hektar lamp, this soft knit throw is similar. Other: this rattan chair is similar, pick up an industrial drinks/bar cart here and spray paint black, SINNERLIG jars, vintage terracotta planters. Kitchen / dining: SINNERLIG cork stool,  Frama diamond light. Hallway: bench, these vases are similar. Bathroom - Aesop and LA:Bruket soaps.

The pink / peach colour is NSC 2020-Y70R and the hallway has been painted in Alcro pigeon grey.  

The coffee table books - The Kinfolk Home, Monochrome Home, Freunde Von Freunden: Berlin.

And of course the windows: if you're in the US you might want to snap up these reclaimed windows which are very similar (hurry!). Or keep an eye on this page for other beautiful windows that pop up all over the world. 

If you're loving the pink you might want to check out my 'pink' pinterest board....(anyone guess that it's my favourite accent colour?!).

And for more small space inspiration, the way the interior designer has created different zones reminds me of this Gothenburg apartment...very clever! Or why not pay the small space archive a visit, hey, it's Monday, real work doesn't start until Tuesday.....

Have a lovely day! 

PS Thank you so much to everyone who entered the give-away this weekend. The winner has now been announced here.....fingers crossed!.....
