A world where you are connected with the landscape around you all the time even when you stay indoors is one that we all want. It promotes a healthier and happier lifestyle even when you are wrapped in modern comforts of the house itself! Creating such seamless indoor-outdoor interplay while ensuring that a cloak of wood and green wraps you at all time is the Forest House designed by Cacau Ribeiro Interiores in Brazil. This is a home where you can find luxurious wooden finishes no matter which side you turn. Then there is the stone wall in the living room that adds to textural beauty while a plastered wall on the other side accentuates this contrasting visual.
This idea of bringing the outdoor inside at the Forest House is accentuated by the use of wooden slats that allow in just the right amount of natural light. Sliding glass doors connect the living area with the dining area and barbecue zone outside along with a small outdoor kitchen. The transition between both the worlds is organic and a series of curated décor pieces in natural finishes throughout the home add to this sense of stylish amalgamation. You never feel like nature I forced upon you at the Forest House; it is just the way of life in here! [Photography: Felipe Araújo]
We used wooden brise soleils and frames with glass to create virtual limits and bring the green into our cabin giving people the idea that they were out there in the woods. We carefully curated design pieces, art and furniture that would perfectly mix simplicity and sophistication for a couple that loves enjoying nature but also demand comfort. A house alive, full of good memories.
