A little over two weeks into the world's biggest soccer tournament (sorry fútbol), our attention remains focused not on the matches, but Brazil's vivacious and spirited design style. While our friend's eyes are glued to goals, we've been off on the sidelines, Googling vacation rentals, interior design, and architecture. It is decided: we need to head south.With a casual, rustic beach house style full of bright white walls, worn woods, gauzy canopies, midcentury-esque furnishings, and colourful art, what's not to envy about this South American look? Vaulted ceilings and sharp architectural details elevate these indoor/outdoor spaces while woven surfaces and nubby textiles warm things up. Shop our picks for getting the look below and click through our slideshow for an escape to Latin America, if only for a minute or two.
