One country that we'll be hearing a lot of in the coming weeks will be Brazil. What with the football world cup dominating our television screens, we thought that we'd take a look at a few of the ways to add a bit of Brazilian spice to your home.
This chic and bold dining room humorously plays on Brazil's heritage and gives it a refined twist. The tongue-in-cheek yellow monkey table sits beneath the modernist take on the national flag, whilst the unconventional and striking colours add a playful weight to the high-quality, traditional furniture.
And this living room really gets to grips with a modern take on the more traditional Brazilian concepts. From the stack of bananas crowded on the dark wooden dining table, to the wonderfully evocative patterned rug, to the luxurious mix of gold candlesticks and carved stone figures, it's all about getting elemental with this rich and diverse country.
But of course, there is a lighter side to Brazilian design that can get overlooked amidst all of the dark woods and golds. These beautifully softly coloured and simply patterned floor tiles gracefully reflect the simple harmony of rustic life.
And no mention of Brazil can last long without referencing the wonderfully Brazilian lust for life. And this patterned fabric is alive with all of the life, colour and energy of the country of rainforests and carnivals!
