For someone with a busy life like reporter Anderson Cooper, having a place to unwind is crucial. He found the perfect spot in the idyllic town of Trancoso, Brazil, in the form of a tropical compound he built from the ground up.
The home is a charming hideaway brimming with character. Though he purchased the property and built it from scratch, the choices he and his partner made with designer Wilbert Das make the home look like it has been a part of the town for centuries. It fits beautifully into the incredible, tropical landscape and feels like a warm, inviting hug.
There is so much charm to be found throughout the four buildings of which the compound is comprised. Each has its own personality but flow together beautifully. Pops of color remind you of the flowers and wildlife, while the main neutrals bring a sense of elegance that balances the rustic touches.
Enjoy this beautiful home tour from Architectural Digest that will have you wanting to take a trip to the heart of Brazil.
