My sister Neuza lives on the second floor of a two-story house in the heart of a Brazilian town. It's a noisy neighborhood, but when we step inside her home it's like stepping into another world, the house is colorful, warm, textural - simply cozy! Like magic the outside noise does not bother anymore.
It's a refreshing, casual, hippie style home, most pieces were gathered over time, some handed down by my mother and sisters. She favors the handcrafted and repurposed items, distressed and painted wood. Her home feels warm, livable and full of character.
Her home is complete with a cozy outdoor breakfast nook, and a sunny patio where she keeps her most valuable jewels, her plants. Definitely she has a green thumb.
As we make our way towards to her patio, we are greeted on either side by planters bursting with stunning succulents and cactus in every shape, size and color. They thrive in her house, they look so pretty and precious.
She has created a true oasis in the middle of her noisy neighborhood.
I hope you have enjoyed this little peak into my sister's home and garden.
This is just a taste of the goodness that awaits you on when you allow your most authentic self come to life and with that have the ability to create freely and organically, driven by creativity and crafting.
