First thing's first. Who can tell me what kind of little critter this is that I spotted at Casa Cor last weekend?
Kind of like a big chipmunk but a small tail - anyway!
What the heck is Casa Cor? It's basically a huge showhome of living spaces both outdoor and indoor put together by a range of designers, plus restaurants and a few stores. Held in the Palacete Modesto Leal in Laranjeiras - gorgeous. Info on the residence itself can be found here.
We went last Sunday, quite a nice little outing which we concluded with Chinese food at the Chinese Cultural Center in Tijuca.
If you've been - what was your favorite space or decorative feature? Mine was the striped wall when you come upstairs with the variety of photos on it. I found a photo of it online, which made me happy since I decided to play by the rules for once and obey the no photos please policy... I want to recreate something like that when we settle eventually.
Mr. DRL liked the ambiance of the large blue living space on the first floor with the big windows. We both also liked the framed TV set in the upstairs living room. We both liked how many of the living spaces included desk spaces which were both functional and inclusive to the room yet not a focal point. My desk would definitely have to get tidier to be included in such a space ;)
