With the World Cup just around the corner, we’re getting into the ‘carnaval’ spirit by looking at some of the vibrant Brazilian shades that will make your home feel like it’s been transplanted into the middle of trendy Rio Di Janiero.

 

The key style to look out for this month are vivid bright shades that will bring a splash of colour and excitement to your room – really evoking the Brazilian ‘partido’ spirit. Of course, these will work best and deliver the greatest impact in a clean, contemporary space, painted in a neutral palette that will let the colour really pop – for example, think about using hot pinks and bright blues on your shutters, and complementing these with flashes of contrasting colour in the rest of your space. Think about accessories that have that ‘Latin’ flavour, and look for distressed details too – evoking the beachside Copacabana feel.

 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a truly Brazilian-inspired scheme if we didn’t include the national colours – yellow and green. These colourful and uplifting shades work particularly well in in the kitchen, and are great for creating a high impact statement in a room as well as maximising the amount of light – perfect for creating the ideal atmosphere in which to kick back with a colour co-ordinating Caipirinha, and saying ‘Saúde!’ to some well-deserved World Cup success.
