Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


This country cottage spoke to my heart and many memories come to my mind when I see it. I was born and raised in Brazil and I grew up going to our country cottage every weekend. My grandparents (that are like parents to me) had a cottage/hobby farm that was a dream to me and my sister. That’s where we ran, that’s where we talked for hours and that’s where my grandma and I used to bake bread and wait for it to be ready while sitting on the veranda. We talked about everything and I remember her words of wisdom about life, about God, about family.

This cottage is located in Brazil and it was designed by architect Renata Bartolomeu. The homeowner, Andrea, wanted to create a space that felt welcoming and authentic to the region. All materials used here were local and that’s what make this country cottage feel even more special and original.

I hope you enjoy it! I’ll keep looking at it and missing the time I was a child…


You need to embrace what you have around you. Notice the beautiful view!


I can’t get enough of that view! I also love the floors. The cowhide sofa is beautiful and very stylish, but I can’t imagine it being comfortable.


The fireplace is covered with a local Brazilian stone called “pedra-madeira”.


Oh, how I miss an authentic Brazilian kitchen. The farmhouse table/island was handmade by a local carpenter.


You can’t be afraid of color living in Brazil. Embrace “happiness”.

Brazilian Wood Stove (Fogao de Lenha)

Every real country cottage/farm in Brazil should have a “wood stove”, called “fogao de lenha” in Brazil. I’m not sure why, but food always taste better when cooked in one of these pots and at a wood stove.



Clay roof tiles remind me of “home”.


Open to the outdoors.

Brazilian Flowers

These plants are called “trepadeira sapatinho-de-judia”.



The patio floors are made of concrete and tiles.



Some beautiful vintage vases.

Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

This cottage really made me miss my family and my childhood. Everything was so simple back then, and life was meaningful from the start. This makes me analyze what kind of memories I’m helping my own kids to build about their childhood.

I hope I’m following my grandmother and mother’s foot steps… letting them feel free to dream, to create and, especially, to be who they really are.

Have a blessed day.

    A beautiful setting, and the fond memories you describe gives one much to reflect. Thank you for sharing a part of your life and dreams…:)

  7. Carolyn said,

    What a lovely place! Do you ever want to decorate your home in a Brazilian style, with colorful tiles for instance? Haven’t really seen that look on your blog from what I remember. My great aunt, who died in 1976, lived in Brazil for many years, and I remember her home at the beach in South Carolina was filled with fascinating things she’d brought back and had a very unique vibe. I have quite a few quirky artifacts that belonged to her. I remember loving to hear about her stories of Brazil.

  8. Ann Chamberlain said,

    Truly a carefully planned and well-loved home! Where is it in Brazil?

  9. classic • casual • home said,

    I just love the idea of the wood burning stove.
