Fazenda (‘Farm’) began from a discovery of 16th century colonial architecture of the farmhouses of north eastern Brazil.
A rustic handspun feel but with the surprising use of primary bold colour against natural earthenware, white walls, rattan roofs and wooden beams.
The landscape with its heavy red earth, ‘TERRA VERMALHA’ against such bright blue sky ‘CEU AZUL’.
With rows and rows of green. Sugarcane, coffee, vineyards, olives, palms. The local markets are filled with cross stitch, cutwork lace, embroidery showing flowers, birds, hearts.
Its fun, its old fashioned and its lovely.
Its a simple, beautiful life.
