Are we small? Yeah! Are we beautiful? Yeah! Bedroom edition!

On this second post about small spaces, I would like to give a special  attention to bedrooms. As I already told you, I’m about to move, but what I haven’t told you is that it’s going to be a smaller apartment. My current apartment is definetly not the largest, but either way I’ll really have to learn how to build smart spaces! Starting from our bedroom! So here are some ideas for me and for you all!

I hope you like them!

Kind regards,

:*


Nesse segundo post sobre espaços pequenos, queria dar uma atenção especial pros quartos. Como já contei em um post anterior, estou de mudança, mas o que não contei pra vocês é que será para um apartamento um pouco menor. Meu apartamento atual não é dos maiores, mas de toda forma, terei que aprender o máximo sobre aproveitamento de espaços (espaços pequenos e inteligentes)! Começando por nosso quarto! Então aqui vão algumas ideias pra mim e pra vocês! Espero que gostem!

Project of the week: Victorian Revival by Martha O’Hara

Pular para português

OK, so I decided to start this new section of the blog: I’ll be posting once a week an amazing project by an amazing interior designer! And I chose Martha O’Hara Interiors for the kick off! I’ve been an admirer of her work for some years through Houzz and I always wish I were closer to Minneapolis to make some project happen with her… In this project (photographed by Corey Gaffer), O’Hara team really respects the originality of the Victorian House, giving a special touch of brightness through new fabrics and color. It’s colorful, elegant and fun!

Check out this Victorian Revival project:

With spunky colors and bohemian patterns, this comfortable design creates an eclectic feel that won’t overwhelm in any way; an authentic victorian home where character and originality thrive in its furnishings and traditional architectural details.

Sim, decidi começar uma nova seção no blog: o objetivo é postar um vez por semana, um projeto incrível de um decorador / arquiteto incrível! E pra começar, escolhi Martha O’Hara Interiors ! A venho acompanhando há alguns anos pelo Houzz e sempre desejo que estivesse mais perto de Minneapolis para fazer acontecer algum projeto com ela! Seu trabalho é colorido e divertido, sem perder a elegância!

Confiram o Victorian Revival project (fotografado por Corey Gaffer):

Com cores audaciosas e padrões boêmios, este projeto confortável cria uma sensação eclética que não vai sobrecarregar de forma alguma; uma autêntica casa vitoriana onde caráter e originalidade prospera em seu mobiliário e detalhes arquitetônicos tradicionais.

Great Designers Series: Eero Saarinen

Pular para português

It is with great pleasure that I launch this Great Designers Series‘ post with Eero Saarinen, one the most influential architects of the XX century, and also of my favorite furniture designers.

Eero Saarinen was born in 1910, in Finland, son of the renowned Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. Following his father’s path, Eero graduated in architecture 1934 at Yale University. In the next years, Saarinen completed many modernist architecture projects, like (i) the Gateway Arc, in St. Louis, (ii) the Miller House, in Columbus, Indiana, (iii) a neo-futuristic terminal in JFK Airport, in New York City.

Besides all the international acclaim in the buildings, Eero has immortalized himself in our homes with the amazing furniture line he designed for Knoll in the 1940’s and 1950’s, including the Pedestal Line (“Tulipe”), the Grasshopper and the Womb chairs.

Further the clean organic aesthetics, the one leg table and chair are made to last forever. The chair cushions can be easily removed to be cleaned or changed; I guess that’s the most amazing thing about design: being timeless.

XOXO,

É com grande prazer que lanço essa Série Grandes Designers com Eero Saarinen, um dos arquitetos mais influentes do século XX, além de um designers de móveis que mais admiro.

Eero Saarinen nasceu em 1910, na Finlândia, filho do renomado arquiteto Eliel Saarinen.  Seguindo os passos do pai, Eero greaduou-se arquiteto em 1934 na Universidade de Yale. Nos próximos anos, Saarinen concluiu muitos projetos modernistas de arquitetura, incluindo (i) o Gateway Arc, em St. Louis, EUA, (ii) a casa Miller, em Columbus, EUA (iii) e o terminal neo-futurista do aeroporto JFK na cidade de Nova Iorque, EUA.

Além dos aclamados projetos de edificações, Eero se imortalizou nos interiores de nossas casas com a linda linha de móveis projetada para a Knoll, incluindo a Linha Pedestal (“Tulipe”), e as cadeiras  Grasshopper e Womb.

Acima da estética orgânica e clean, as mesas e cadeiras são feitas para durar pela eternidade. Os assentos das cadeiras tulipe são facilmente removíveis para limpeza ou troca. E é isso o que mais admiro no design: atemporalidade.

Beijos.

Saarinen

Gray is the new beige

Pular para português

When you think about neutral colors for the walls? It used to be beiges and whites, right? What about gray? Recently, I find myself loving more and more gray as a neutral color. I think it is the go-to color when in doubt, and you can just accent with pillows, rugs, and other items. Paint is one of the easiest ways to change your room and give it a new fresh look. Don`t be afraid of doing it yourself! I`ve done it myself and believe me, it can be quite therapeutic…

And you? what do you think about grays?

XOXO,


Qual a primeira cor que vem a sua cabeça quando você pensa em paredes neutras? Bege? Talvez branco? E quanto ao cinza? Eu tenho amado cada vez mais, e pra alegrar o ambiente, use almofadas, tapetes e alguns objetos coloridos.

Repintar as paredes pode ser o primeiro passo pra renovar o seu ambiente. E acredite, é tão fácil e tão terapêutico! Coloque seu moletom velho, arregace as mangas e rejuvenesça seu espaço.

Um abraço,
