Pool me up: green pools edition

Since I met the famous orange pool from Tivoli Mofarrej Hotel in São Paulo, I started looking at pools from a different perspective. Nowadays, I just fell in love with green pools. I feel they can mix better with the landscape, especially in the country side, when green is usually more predominant. So here is my green pool selection. I hope you like it!


Desde que eu conheci a famosa piscina laranja do Hotel Tivoli Mofarrej em São Paulo, comecei a olhar para piscinas de uma forma diferente. Recentemente, me apaixonei pelas piscinas verdes. Acredito que elas se misturam melhor com a paisagem, especialmente no campo, onde o verde é naturalmente predominante. Então aqui vai minha seleção de piscinas verdes. Espero que gostem!

Today is a chilly day in Sao Paulo. But the spring has arrived and boy the sky looks beautiful! This clean blue sky inspired me to look into some pools. And what better day to moon about your dream pool that than a Saturday? Continue reading

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.

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.

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?


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,
