Impressively large rooms with high ceilings and wide windows build these two exceptional rustic Mediterranean style villa designs. A warming palette of natural materials covers each room in the shape of relaxed rattan furniture, jute rugs, rustic wicker pendant light shades, burlap drapes, and hessian throws. Visualised by Anastasia Bulycheva, the texture-rich accessories are met by raw wall render and fresh infusions of indoor plants. Sliding glass doors adjoin indoor and outdoor living spaces to make the most of warm and glorious weather. Comfortable outdoor lounge areas have been fashioned around the pool terraces, where mature green borders grow serene seclusion and picturesque perimeters.

A balance of rich and raw neutrals ring a note of inner peace in these spaces, where invisible roots seem to make an innate connection with the planet and the influences of all its continents. Decorative basketweave decor and handmade earthenware pots speak of global artisans, which are celebrated through displays on densely packed shelving nooks and in clusters that spill from every corner. In these two intriguing rustic nomadic interiors, lush botanicals grow bursts of enlivening and invigorating greenery that spills from indoor plant beds and from a tiny terrace that teems with life.

Crisp lines are employed and covered in a monochrome colour palette to convey an atmosphere of modern sophistication. However, curvaceous elements come into play too, dramatically rounding out the seam between wall and ceiling with both impact and grace. This fluid environment works as an analogy of the Bahian recôncavo, whilst light filtering muxarabi screens honour traditional Bahian architecture. This architectural element is utilised to build ‘boxes’ within the layout too, which house a concealed kitchen and an ensuite bathroom.
