Guest Post: How to Bring A Bit of Brazil into the Home

Looking to introduce a summer time tropical vibe to your home? You’re in the right place!

Here’s what we’ll be covering today:

  • Vibrancy
  • Style
  • Culture

If you hadn’t already noticed, something big happened this summer in Brazil. It had the entire world captivated and we fell in love with their culture yet again. I am, of course, talking about the Olympic Games which took place in Brazil this year, which created the same carnival feel and electric atmosphere that the World Cup created in the same location two years ago. During the World Cup, the world was able to grasp the entire culture of Brazilian life, and caught a glimpse of their insane passion for colour, vibrancy, uniqueness, and great craftsmanship, and now these are themes which many people are using to produce truly magnificent interiors in their homes.

Now, a Brazilian themed interior may be a difficult look to get right as it is so complex and unusual, but that’s why we’re here; we’ll give you all the hints and tips you need to create a tropical paradise in the comfort of your own home. So you needn’t worry about missing the mark when bringing in this fantastic style! If this sounds like the look for you, be sure to stick around…

Vibrancy

When it comes to using vibrant colours to create an emphatic atmosphere, nobody does it quite like the Brazilians. They have an inept ability of introducing an injection of life into any home with the use of bold colouring and their immensely unique enthusiasm.

So, it’s all well and good saying that the South Americans have an eye for vibrancy, but how does one incorporate that into their own home? Well, one way to do that could be by bringing a light fitting such as the Tiffany Easy to Fit Deep Dish Uplighter into your home, as it will provide a sense of satisfying lighting combined with a brilliant Brazilian inspired look, complete with bright colours and the native yellow which is to be expected from the green and gold nation. The colourful theme transpires throughout the way of life in Brazil, and this creates a genuinely magnificent feel and atmosphere that can generate truly beautiful moments.

Style

The Brazilian style is also a great way to bring their carnival-like personality into your home, too! This can be in a variety of methods, but one of the main ways can be to focus on the kinds of materials used in their culture and how you can utilise those within your own home.

One of the materials that is widely used across this South American paradise is that of wood and bamboo, as it is naturally sourced and easily available. These home grown materials offer a very rustic look, as is evidenced by this Milton Easy to Fit Light Shade, which embodies everything you would expect from a Brazilian style fitting.

Culture

The last feature of the Brazilian that we are going to look at is their culture, and how this can bring an entirely new feel and atmosphere into your home. The Brazilian culture is based upon passion and flamboyance. This is perfectly showcased through what we see on the television during the spectacular ceremonies for the Olympics and the World Cup as well as during the carnivals and festivals that they host on an annual basis. The carnival atmosphere carries huge connotations of colour, vibrancy and joy, which are things that the natives seem to thrive upon.

This theme of the unusual and the strange is exhibited perfectly with this Spikey Ball Easy to Fit Light Shade, which brings an entirely unique feel directly into your home.

On Last Thought…

The Brazilian and tropical theme is one which is a joy to behold and makes your home a simply magnificent place to live. However, be aware of how many Brazilian features you have in your home, as too much may lead to an overwhelming look and may not work too well during the winter months. Brazil; a beautiful home style but finding the right balance is vital!
