Can you imagine attending a dinner party and enjoying this gorgeous outdoor view? I certainly can.
This family-friendly house in São Paulo’s fashionable Jardins district is home to a couple, their three children, and a collection of Brazilian art. The home's architect, Isay Weinfeld, notes in the Architectural Digest article about the home, “They are not the kind of people who need dining room doors so the table can be prepared while they entertain guests in the living room. Everything about them is open, and I tried to create a house in that spirit.”
And while the rest of the home spills over with gorgeous artwork, the dining room, framed by floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows, lets the outdoor views do the heavy lifting when it comes to visual interest. Inside, the dining room is minimally decorated with vintage pendant lights, a Jorge Zalszupin table, and Hans J. Wegner chairs.
If you're lucky enough to have a home with pretty outdoor views and good-sized windows, consider keeping the artwork to a minimum and focusing the view on the out of doors. For the price of an original painting you could instead invest in a lot of beautiful landscaping plants that will make your window views really pop. Have you already done this at your home?
