Anderson Cooper’s Stylish Outdoor Living Digs

Anderson Cooper’s vacation home in Trancoso, Brazil graced the front pages of Architectural Digest, and rightly so. The home is situated in a remote hamlet near the Atlantic Ocean but Anderson is not a beach goer and prefers “moving from spot to spot” on the property.

The spots include an outdoor kitchen and bar area, a terrace with a pool and a master suite built as a two-story treehouse. The treehouse rests on stilts, under which is an outdoor patio area meant for relaxation.

The home has elegant open doorways that lead to the outdoors. The property itself melds into the surrounding greenery, with acai trees, banana trees and other rain forest fauna an arms length away.

The home’s luxury lies in its exquisite detail. The outdoor dining area is rustic in appearance, with a large table and farm benches. Above the table you’ll find terra cotta hanging lamps.

Guest verandas are equipped with pillowed couches and net chairs, delivering a charming mix-and-match ambiance while overhead cover keeps out the rain and shade diminishes the sun’s impact.

Anderson described how the home’s woodwork was crafted from wood salvabged from a Bahian farmhouse. Outdoor living enthusiasts may be more impressed with the tassled hammocks that run between trees. Lush vegetation surrounds the property’s more intimate spots like the free-form pool’s curved edges that meet the rain forest landscape.

Even if your outdoor space doesn’t include rain forest scenery, it seems that terra cotta lamps could soon replace Japanese lanterns.
