My brother's living room

Dear friends,
I was in Brazil last week, and took a few pictures of my brother's apartment to show you.
I did not want to show his whole place so I picked the living room and my favourite pieces.
He has a big living room, and it is divided in different areas, including TV room, a sitting room, a dining room and also a long area by the windows. In this area we have another table (his favourite, because we can see the ocean from there) and sofas as well.
The door is all leather, I don't know where he got this idea from. I never saw anything like that!
I love the big mirror and the rug...
His beautiful dining table. You can see a little sofa at the end, that is part of a long area which before was a balcony that he opened.
The chandelier is STUNNING.


It is not crystal, I don't know what it is... I touched and it felt like some kind of stone. 
This is the area that was once a balcony. To the right of these first chairs is the dining room, and to the right of the table is the sitting room.
This row of chairs is part of the sitting room. Right in front of  it there are other two big leather chairs. Opposite to the beige sofa there is a sideboard, which backs to another sofa that is part of the TV room, which I am not showing.
You can see the smaller table at the end, the one he likes the most, because it is smaller and we have the view.
This chair is one of my favourite pieces in his house.
Adorable!
WOOOWWW... That's all I can say. 


I hope you liked the tour!
If you want to marry him, you need to move to Brazil, LOL!

    1. Thank you, Sherry!
      It is funny the other day we were commenting that growing up our TV was not even 3 meters of distance from the sofa... My mom was a teacher, single mom raising my brother and I.
      He did well, my baby brother!

    1. Dear Laura, I miss you!!!
      Yes, it was great to be there with my mom and my brother. Once I was there everybody felt better!!!
      His apartment is beautiful. He lives there for about three years now, and he did the living room first. It is ready for about a year now. But I get stunned every time I come in, LOL!
      Thank you for coming over!

  6. How does he feel about middle aged frumpy housewives with 6 kids. And married. No? Ok, maybe he needs a housekeeper then?

    1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Welcome, Bliss!!!
      I love your sense of humor! I think he would definitely like a housewife wit a few kids, LOL! But not with a husband! He is divorced and has a 3 year-old girl. He is scared of marrying again!
      Thank you so much for coming over and commenting!
