Today we take a virtual trip to Portugal where we will take a peek into this stunning country home in Palmela, which is not far from Lisbon. This is the refuge of interior designer Monica Penaguião. The building itself is simple and rustic, it’s the mix of modern furniture that gives color to the various rooms.
The lounge area (top image) is stunning. Thick mattresses and cushions made from Turkish fabrics are great for an afternoon nap. The kilim rug is an antique. The stools and chairs are from Tolix. The handmade pergola gives shade to the pool area (image above). Missoni towels brighten up the sun beds that were purchased on a trip to India.
The stone sink in the kitchen is mounted on an iron frame. An old wood oven is used for baking and gives warmth in winter.
The green lamp in the dining room is designed by Marcel Wanders for Capellini. The rotan stools were purchased in the region of Alentejo.
Doesn’t the pool look very inviting?! The whitewashed walls and old wooden doors (image below) maintain the authentic charm of the building.
