Julia Franco unveils Nosso
Known for its vibrant people and spirit, it’s no surprise that style maven Julia Franco chose Cape Town for the location of her new decor and lifestyle emporium, Nosso.
An address in the Mother City, she knew, was the perfect compliment to business and its exuberant collection of homeware items.
A vibrant celebration of Brazilian culture, heritage and artistic craftsmanship, Nosso, the Portuguese word for “ours”, stocks a curated selection of art and decor pieces from Brazil – each a testament to the craftsmanship and creativity of talented artisans.
“Nosso encapsulates the essence of this venture. It’s about the heritage, culture, and passion woven into each piece we offer. These items tell stories not only of their makers but of people, civilisations and the human experience,” explains Julia.
Nestled in the heart of Sea Point, here style-savvy shoppers will find everything from intricate woodwork to tapestries, ceramics and more – each item a lively ode to colour and creativity.
While Julia acknowledges global trends are all about neutrals, she also believes there is a space for spirited, colourful designs in home decor – especially in South Africa, which has an equally rich and vibrant culture as Brazil.
“Nosso is my way of protesting the fading of colours. South Africa deserves the richness and warmth that these Brazilian pieces bring,” explains Julia adding that Nosso aspires to be more than a store; it is a sanctuary for authentic, soulful pieces that tell stories – not just of their creators but of the individuals who inhabit these spaces.
“Nosso is where people find treasures that make their homes unique, that tell a story.”
Visit Nosso at 67A Regent Street in Sea Point, Cape Town.
