Global Style Hits the Beach By Sig Bergamin’s
Sig Bergamin’s retreat in Trancoso is a delightful exception. With confidence and wit, the Brazilian designer has conjured a mad amalgam of styles, periods, colors, textures, and patterns, all whirled together into lighthearted compositions set against a crisp backdrop of white floors, walls, and ceilings. The furnishings and art range wildly—high to low, old to new, Paris to Beijing—but nothing seems so precious that it couldn’t withstand a few spilled caipirinhas or an errant kick during an impromptu samba session.
