Progetto Arquitetura e Interiores

As I was running around today and craving some r+r, I stumbled upon this beauty.  Somewhere between the millions of emails and countless website searches, I suddenly realized I had been listening to Reggae and searching for vacation getaways for a good hour without thinking twice.  Think somebody wants a vacation?  Haha, well Reggae and white sand aside, this beautiful home in Rio de Janeiro was just what I needed to feel refreshed and ready to take on the rest of my day!

Designed by the talented team from Progetto Arquitetura headed by Gisele Taranto and Izabela Lessa, this home in the upscale Jardim Pernambuco neighborhood of Rio focused on maximizing the indoor-outdoor space and brought the "leisure" areas of the home to the head of importance.

The structure of the residence itself is steel, much the natural wood planks keep the home from feeling cold and institutional and give a spa like feel--almost like you are in a giant sauna!

I bet the stone floors feel amazing in the Brazilian heat...ahhh

The interior decor is relatively simply, so most of the details celebrate the amazing architecture and form of the space itself.  These ladies knew what they were doing...

You can see the focus of incorporating the interior and exterior spaces with the incredible high ceilings, skylights, and the giant doors that literally open the living area to the nature outside.

Clean and modern in the kitchen without sacrificing style.

Simple and clean in the bathroom with wood, wood, and more wood!

I hope everyone is able to relax a little after their long day...even if its just for a second!
