One of the main reasons why I love her work so much is because she brings back what Brazil is really all about: colors, curves, history, religion, art, mix of different cultures, elements from the nature and lots of character! And let me tell you something: that is NOT an easy task! Despite what you may envision of a brazilian home looks like the truth is that most of the people that can afford an interior designer usually mirror their decor in the houses of "american movies". The essence of the brazilian style has been dying because so many are trying to look 'modern' and have 'clean lines'. Literally when I visit my friends house it all looks the same: all neutral colors (maybe with 1 accent wall) and furniture pieces from famous international designers. In my humble personal opinion there has a lack of personality and a lack of connection with the brazilian roots... Until Neza shows up in the picture!
Neza is the face of Brazil and she carries a huge amount of responsibility: to design unique houses for real people! She finds the personality of the home-owner and she translates that into colors, art pieces and cozy rooms! You now see how much the "Wonder Woman' concept fits her very well: she beautifully find people's individuality which led her to be a successful interior designer and she is also a mom, a wife, a home-owner of a fabulous house with stunning mountain views in Sao Paulo, the owner of 2 cute dogs, a blogger, an amazing writer and a very spiritual being!
Neza break rules, makes unmatched patterns look like a perfect match, mixes unpredictable colors, breaks all rules and she screams to the world who she is and what her design sensibility is all about! She also has an extremely love for asian elements specially India - where she visits for spiritual journeys and inspiration. Her spiritual connection has kept her centered and humble and she seems to have found the perfect balanced between designing a house for a famous celebrity and having a simple lifestyle that includes sitting outdoors by a fireplace at night, having breakfast watching the views, meditating with nature, walking the dogs or even enjoying a waterfall! Please have fun and get inspired looking at her answers, her work and her lifestyle!
