São Paulo

Harmony inspired by nature

A city that is as dynamic as it is crowded, São Paulo is teeming with energy and inspiration. Drawing from the vibrant murals that adorn the buildings, the historical architecture and the abundant nature that surrounds it, São Paulo local Giovanna created a home that brings these rich influences together to create a harmonious space.

Giovana's dream home

Franke kitchen

With a view of the river and the Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge, Giovana's home in the Morumbi district immediately exudes an atmosphere of tranquillity and beauty. This feeling is enhanced by the neutral tones and raw materials found throughout the house. Soft wooden furniture perfectly complements pops of greenery to create an airy space that is full of light.

"I wanted to celebrate nature and bring it inside my home to contrast with the busy city outside"


CEO of a cosmetics company

Room with wooden table, african mask hanging on the wall, lots of plants - Franke

With a focus on aromatic herbs, tradition and her love for food, the kitchen is a delight, with bright spaces and playful features. Green ceramic tiles cover the worktop, which is accented by the polished black oven and a black Fragranite sink. A swing brings a whimsical touch to the kitchen and creates a joyful seat for Giovana's daughters to watch her cook. While tribal wooden masks adorn the walls to celebrate her heritage and bring colour to the space.

In this capital of innovation and technology, the houses of old coffee barons are interspersed with the modernist style of Oscar Niemeyer. Down every street in the old city centre is a hidden architectural gem just waiting to be discovered. The vibrant music and art scene keeps São Paulo's energy buzzing and provides exciting opportunities for creativity, as well as fresh design inspiration to bring into your home.

Meet Giovana, a 39-year-old business owner and entrepreneur in the cosmetics industry. She is married to Carlos and has twin daughters, Anna and Anita, aged 6. From her grandmother, she inherited recipes and preparations from the ancient Brazilian Curander culture, which she uses as the foundation for her company's natural cosmetics and body care products. But Giovana still believes that the best medicine is good food. As a proud Brazilian, she has a weakness for Pelé and the Brazilian national football team.
