This eclectic style country home in Portugal is full of inspirational ideas that would be perfectly suited to a beach house. The furniture is a mix of designer pieces collected from across the globe as well as vintage finds picked up at local markets. It has all been cleverly put together by interior designer Monica Penaguião. The building itself is simple and rustic but it’s the mix of modern furniture and quirky details that gives color and personality to the rooms. The alfresco lounge area looks incredibly inviting with its thick mattresses and cushions made from Turkish fabrics which are perfect for an afternoon nap! The kilim rug is an antique brought back from their OS travels. The stools and chairs are from Tolix. The stone sink in the kitchen is mounted on an iron frame is a local find. An old wood oven is used for old fashioned baking and gives warmth in winter. The handmade pergola gives shade to the pool area and I love the jewel like tones in the Missoni towels that brighten up the wooden sun beds which were purchased on a trip to India. Long, lazy lunches are enjoyed under a shady tree with a bottle or two of the local vino!!
