With the Olympic Games just around the corner, we’ve got Rio fever. Even if you’re watching from the other side of the world, you can still enjoy a bit of Brazilian spirit at home with energetic accessories.

Red Hardwood in British Colonial | This living room evokes the nautical with a red, white and blue color palette. A white tongue-and-groove ceiling looks down upon a high-gloss red hardwood floor, while blue-and-white striped wallpaper lines the walls. Dark Colonial furniture, avian accessories and exotic floral upholstery are a nod to tropical style.
