Itacaré Refuge in Salvador

Nathalia Velame as Interior Architects

The interior designer creates a space inspired by the sea and landscape of Itacaré

The Bahian and tropical chic lifestyle inspired interior the designer Nathalia Velame  to create her multifunctional environment, named Refúgio Itacaré. With an area of 200m2, distributed in living room, dining room with cellar, breakfast area, reading corner, bedroom with closet and shower room which gives access to the exclusive glass pier and makes the atmosphere is intimate and welcoming.


The space was designed to attend a family that lives abroad but loves Itacaré for the natural beauty of its beaches, the climate of Brazil and has the idea of using the house during holidays and long holidays. Large glazed openings create true landscape art canvases that inspire the fresh and natural colors of the setting.


Nathalia avoided using curtains so that nothing stole the scene Baía de Todos os Santos and the historic part of the city. At Itacaré Refuge visitors can admire the Elevador Lacerda, Museu de Arte Sacra and the São Marcelo Forte. “The sea is the central figure of my environment, I bet a lot on the great master Frank Lloyd Wright who when he designed the Cascade House did not pretend to compete with nature, so what I did was just try to balance the light of the Baía de Todos os Santos and create various scenes to take advantage of the surroundings” highlights the designer.
