It is no secret…

In this house anyway…That I would move to Brazil in a skinny minute


The few times I have been…I have loved meeting the people, the culture…It is a giant and beautifully diverse country


And in my dreams…If when I lived in Brazil…I would live wildinhaling the surroundings…I would live here:LeafHouse2 In a house shaped like a giant leaf…seriously.


LeafHouse21 The natural shape of a leaf protects the home from hot and humid weather…and the


tropical rains


The tall open spaces can capture the sultry trade winds


leafhouse



I would love to invest in and become a part of the surroundings.Surround myself with water...and swaying palms...and warm breezes. Isn’t that what it is all about when dreaming of beach homes?


LeafHouse5


Dinner for 14…anyone? Come visit. You are always welcome


LeafHouse24



Oh the hammocks…and the spiraling architectural details…


LeafHouse6


Rattan ceilings…


LeafHouse9


Ok…so maybe I would need a splash of white paint. shhhhhhh.


LeafHouse10


LeafHouse12


LeafHouse20


We all need to step outside of our box once in awhile…and live under a leaf.


Doncha' think?


LeafHouse1 I guess I could do it here


twist my arm.




Fabulous architecture by Mareines and Patalano.

So, when I come for dinner, what shall I bring? Besides, ice, of course...
Don't know where you found this, but if you're anything like me, Sotheby's real estate is a great source of information on what to do with all those lottery winnings.

Lottery winnings? I was just going to look for change under the couch cushions...a girl can dream...right?

You can have the one right next to mine.

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

That was supposed to say...Deb...you can have the hammock right next to mine!

I could definitely live here...if only for the water. I'd have to splash on some color, a bit too brown for my taste...but so awesome!

OMG. The wood in that place is out of control! What I would give for that giant slab of wood for a table. And that bed is just fantabulous. I want the hammock on the other side of you from Deb. :)

Good Lord!!!
It's an amazing art piece. How fun to live in a sculpture ... in Brazil! Thanks for the escape. It's gloomy and I am procrastination studying for my art history final!

Cy@ Gianna Fair Trade said...

The architecture is really amazing. The theme is so well thought of, from the structure to the interiors. Really great! Wonder if they also use eco-friendly materials...

Living under a leaf...what a fab idea!!!
