Margarida's outdoor oasis

You may recall this post of Margarida's weekend home in Portugal back in 2013. Well it seems Margarida has been hard at work on the exterior of her home, despite 45°C heat (which would explain the expanse of brown in the photo above). I detest winter, so this time of the year really gets me down as it is the end of warm weather for a very long time....which is why I really needed to feature this lovely outdoor space. Anything to transport me to warmer climates...

Baixa House

A home away from home. Perhaps I should say an apartment. Baixa House in Lisbon, Portugal is a boutique hotel of individual self-catering apartments over several floors, each with its own stylish interior. Bright white walls, scrubbed floors, vintage finds and beautiful light flooding in. Forget the holiday. I'd want to live there permanently. Via Welcome Beyond.

Casa no Tempo

It's been in the family for years. It was their grandfather's house. Now with the help of architect Manuel Aires Mateus, João and Andreia Rodrigues have created a simple and stylish get away in Montemor-o-Novo, Alentejo, Portugal. Casa no Tempo, minimalism meets rural idyll. Rolling fields, wildflowers, cork grove, horses, pool. I can see the perfect weekend far from the madding crowd. If only I could runaway.
