Texture is everywhere!
We find Texture in our walls, floors and ceilings.

In furniture elements, fabrics,wall finishes, wood beams...It draws our attention in brick, stone and tile. It's present in the polished surfaces of mirrors, glass, counter tops and cabinets. Texture brings interest through a wicker chandelier, rattan chair and hand thrown pottery. Texture is at the heart of Interior Design materials and combining and layering contrasting textures is like adding that extra cup of sugar, pinch of salt, or splash of Tabasco that finishes a room with that "little something" that was missing.

Fall is most definitely in the air! Keep warm with layers on layers of neutral browns and greens. I don't know about you but we are very excited for this seasons trends! And don't forget to savor that sweet crisp air before winter hits!

This coastal house reminds us of pink grapefruit sprinkled lightly with sugar, it is clean, crisp, sweet and fresh. These rooms definitely have a feel and design like no other beach house.


Designed by Maria Barros Interior Design of Portugal. Maria gives this house a voice and it is signing out loud. You can't help but feel happiness from her design, which has been compared to Jonathan Adler, a similar talent for making people smile through design.
