Taschen's new book Bahia Style shows best places to stay in Bahia and beautiful private homes

Taschen is launching this week the book Bahia Style.

Who wrote it? None other than Angelika Taschen herself (who’s worked for TASCHEN since 1987, and has published numerous titles on art, architecture, photography, design, travel, and lifestyle).

Photos are by São Paulo native Tuca Reinés, frequent contributor to Vogue, Casa Vogue Brasil, and Wallpaper*, among others. His work has appeared in several design books, including TASCHEN's Seaside Interiors and Great Escapes South America.

Some of Southern Bahia’s most exclusive spots appear in the book, such as my personal fave Espelho das Maravilhas (pictured above), near Trancoso. There are several photos of private houses, including the one owned by my friend Joana Vieira, who has a style all her own:

Here's another stylish beach house, in nearby Curuípe, owned by Isabel Duprat and Manuel Leão:

Also show in the book is the gorgeous Fazenda Calá, by far the best place to stay at Espelho.

Bahia's capital Salvador makes an appearance with a house by famed designer David Bastos:

Bahia Style is the second book on Brazil released recently by Taschen: more on the other one, called Mario de Janeiro Testino, essentially, a love letter to his favourite city.
