Step into this Brazilian condominium by architect Marcelo Mota and you’re in for some pampering. An open, spacious floor plan moves you from the indoor living room, with cream-colored upholstery and wood grain, to a lavish deck and garden area that is, in itself, an additional room on the house. Dip in the blue-tiled pool, catch some sun in the loungers, or merely daydream while enjoying the marvelous view. When it’s time for a snack, a wet bar with high stools is close at hand. Entertaining guests is easy with a large formal dining table, and burgundy-covered tufted chairs, that seats eight for convivial, leisurely meals. Sculpture and ceramic accents in earth-toned neutrals pick up the shine from recessed lighting — and, of course, the glow of the pool and starlight by night.

Concealed behind wood-grain sliding doors is a fully-equipped modern kitchen, handy for interaction between the cook and the guests in the dining area. At the other end of the living room are stairs leading to bedrooms and the media room. One bedroom is clearly set up for two little girls, while the master is spacious, with a tranquil mood set by pale sand-colored linens and draperies, and recessed lighting above the headboard that gives plenty of light for nighttime reading. Grays cover the throw pillows and casual daybed in the media room/bedroom, with a matching ottoman that invites putting your feet up. In essence, that seems to be the mood of this whole house: “Put your feet up — you’re home.” [ Photos and information provided via email by Patricia Zanotti, a Brazilian journalist]
