  • Going for the Gold: Brazil-Inspired Kitchen Decor for Your Home

    These days all eyes are on Brazil. With hosting the 2016 Olympic Games, Rio de Janeiro has become the place to be for the summer. As athletes go for the gold across infinite sporting events, the Brazilian culture exudes throughout the games. With the lavish Opening Ceremony to the bright colors in the promotional displays, Brazil's flamboyance is apparent everywhere. In spirit of the Olympic Games, here is some Brazil-inspired kitchen design and decor that can be used in your home.

    Simple Geometry: Many contemporary Brazilian home interiors take inspiration from modern design, having simplistic straight lines in the cabinetry without any crowning, moulding or decorative elements. The kitchen is no exception. Most of the cabinetry in the kitchen is very clean with straight cabinetry and countertops. Be it a colorful or neutral color palette, simplistic geometry is apparent throughout.

    Emphasis on Color: Due to the simpler structures, most Brazilian homes make up for it by adding extensive amounts of color within their home. Many kitchens can be seen with bright, ostentatious colors such as yellows, bright blues, pinks, vivid greens, and oranges. These colors create that carnival-like atmosphere within a home. Even when a kitchen has a more neutral color palette, the entire kitchen is brought to life with colorful food items, bowls, and plates. In Brazil, colors are a sign of happiness and it is believed that this happiness should be a part of every home.

    Bold Patterns: Many homes in Brazil also add significant bold patterns to their home. Within a kitchen, bold patterns are often seen in the kitchen backsplashes or even in the chairs and cabinetry. Bold patterns are also seen to bring the entire kitchen together and complement the entire scheme and theme, adding to the cabinetry and the surrounding furniture.

    Natural & Metallic Touches: Along with bold colors and patterns, overall kitchen designs can also include unique touches. Metallic touches can be seen in the backsplashes and appliances, while natural finish can be seen in the countertops and cabinetry. The natural finishes consist of a bamboo or wicker-type look, and are readily complemented with bright pops of color throughout.

    Overall, the Brazilian culture embraces celebration, brightness, and a positive lifestyle. As you continue to follow the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, take some home interior inspiration from Brazil and mix up the bright colors with the bold patterns and add the natural and metallic touches to create that South-American-inspired kitchen for your home.
