Lately I just can’t get travel off my mind – I’m already planning some big (and little!) trips for the coming year, from a return to Marrakech for our styling workshop to a potential getaway in Jamaica (what!) all I want to do is hop a plane! So while some of you may be getting away to summer homes or local beaches this weekend, I’ll be dreaming of being here… in Portugal.


This sunny spot in Camporta, just outside of Lisbon is an area I’ve just become familiar with as I’ve started to do research on my Portugal getaway. Lisbon was already on my list of next destinations – in fact, I was planning on heading there on our way back from Morocco – so if you happen to be the owner of this bright and happy home, maybe I could just come and stay a bit?

The bright living area is my favorite room – the extra long ottoman makes the space for me. But I love the subtle stripes everywhere, and the pops of saturated pink! This color scheme takes place throughout the home and is done in such a tasteful fun way. From art to textiles, the splashes of magenta are spot on.


The oversized pendant in the dining area is a fun addition as well – a perfect addition that doesn’t overwhelm. I also like the touches of high-contrast black in the decor. Not something I would normally think of for a beach house, but it totally works and creates a little drama.

And of course, I have to share a few bits from the rest of the house…

A beautiful outdoor dining area just off the kitchen on a porch that leads down to the pool.  


Both bedrooms are keeping in line with the palette in the living area with loads of white and hits of that gorgeous magenta. Doesn’t it feel so fresh and chic? Love those linen slipcovered headboards – those are definitely next on my personal wishlist.

And it looks like those stairs lead up to another lofted sleeping area. If you don’t mind, I’ll just claim that one, and move in? See ya at the pool.
