Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Have you ever dreamed of staying in a cottage located in a tropical location? What about Brazil? Yes, a cottage by the beach in Brazil sounds pretty good. Many people think “Rio de Janeiro” when someone says “Brazil” and even though Rio is a gorgeous city to visit, the real great places to vacation in Brazil are located in remote areas. One such place is Arraial d’Ajuda, Bahia, Brazil. That’s a place I’d really recommend anyone to go. I personally haven’t gone there yet, but my sister had her honeymoon there and swears by it. Arraial d’Ajuda is a very small town with unspoiled beaches, very friendly people and super fresh food. The weather is also amazing! Very warm, but the ocean breeze and the warm waters are always there to cool you down.

When I first saw this place in Brazil I thought about sharing it right away. I think it has so many great qualities you can find in a Brazilian home. It has exotic woods, color, openness. The views of the forest are just beautiful. It’s almost as if you’re in a tree house.

Take a look and let me know if you’d like to take some days off in this place!



This is how a tropical cottage should feel in Brazil.

Ocean Breeze

The house is very close to the beach.


Everything is really colorful in this cottage.


A good look at the place.


Local art can be found in many rooms of this cottage.


Simple and sleek.

More Art

These light fixtures are hand painted. Aren’t they beautiful?


Everything has a very relaxed feel in this cottage.




I love this window.


I love seeing the deep green of these leaves.

Brazilian Soul

All these colors make me feel happy.


The staircase is made of local wood.


Talking about wood, take a good look at this magnificent carved wooden chair. It’s a piece of art.

Keep Calm And Carry On

Open to the outdoors.

Master Bedroom

Imagine yourself in this bed, feeling the breeze coming in…


This is the view from the bed.

Alegria! Alegria!

Sure, this is not for everyone or everywhere, but it brings happiness to a Brazilian cottage.


Tiles inside the shower.


Just outside the master bedroom.


Hammocks are huge in Brazil. I love them!

All of Us

I could enjoy this place!


A fun place for a Brazilian drink: Caipirinha.


Imagine yourself relaxing here, under the sun and with this view.


Outdoor shower? Yes, please!


Aren’t these chairs very unique?

Why Brazil?

And this is the reason you go to Brazil.


And yes, the food is pretty amazing too!

The Village

The tiny town feels safe and welcoming.


A little house.


Some stores around the town. Local shopping, anyone?

Buy Color

Wouldn’t it be fun to bring home some of these vibrant colors?


While there, why not learn some “lambada” moves? Lambada is a fun and fast dance. I have to say this; lambada is great to make you burn some calories, be in shape and feel happy!

Look Up!

Do you see the light green plants? They’re orchids. People put their orchids in their trees and they grow beautifully there. My grandmother has some orchids on the tree in front of her house in Brazil.

The Reason

The cottage is great, the shopping is fun, but we all want go to the beach!


So nice!

Walk On

Miles and miles of warm sand.


This is the kind of beach that would make me take a plane to go to! This one is worthy!


You can call it heaven, paradise or simply, Brazil.


You’d find me in one of these daybeds.


They say “paz” which means “peace”.

Warm Up

I love hearing the waves breaking on the shore.

I’m wishing I was in this place right now. I woke up to a very cold and windy morning today. Even though I’m enjoying Fall, I must say I’m already missing the sun! It gets cold here very quickly. Seeing all this sunshine and the beach is just what I needed today.

How’s your day going so far? Many plans for today? If you’re going to have a busy day, try to keep a positive attitude. I say that for myself, too. It seems that I’m running around too much lately and forgetting to breathe. Sometimes we need to focus on that, on just slowing down. We have to remind ourselves of how precious life is and try to find gratefulness in every day.

Please, make sure to come back tomorrow. I’ve prepared a post which I can’t wait to share with you.

Have a blessed day!

    Such a beautiful place! I love the hand painted lamp shades above the breakfast bar – Brazilian people are obviously not afraid of colour. I can see myself in the orange hammock with a glass of something cool and refreshing, enjoying the fabulous views….I can dream anyway!

    Hello Lu,

    I’m so glad to see this beautiful cottage. Thanks for sharing. The house is very airy and colorful. THat bathroom is something else! The tiles… a work of art.
    I’ve been to a unspoiled beach in Bahia called Mangue Seco. Have you heard about it? It felt like I was in heaven, seriously.

    Nice week to you!

    This post is getting me very excited for my beach vacation next week! That cottage looks so serene and amazing! I have had the opportunity to go to a small beach town in Bahia and it was an unforgettable experience!

  10. Lynne said,

    I really like the casual comfy-ness of this beautiful house. I can’t bring myself to call it a cottage. It doesn’t fit my perception of a cottage at all. 🙂
