Portuguese Sanctuary January 03rd 2012
When you are running a global business, it is important to be able to really get away from it all sometimes. For Jane, this means escaping from the bustle of London or L.A. and to retreating to her Portuguese home twice a year - this is her ultimate sanctuary.
Designed as her hideaway, Jane’s Portuguese home is a complete contrast to her English country home. This is where Jane displays her artistic flair and personal interior style. With it’s breath-taking views, Jane has designed the house so that the interior and exterior blend harmoniously and flow into each other with ease. Jane has chosen a light, slightly rustic, almost Nordic style throughout, making the most of the fabulous Portuguese climate and lifestyle.
Jane’s love of relaxed living and laid back style is very apparent in this lovely home. White washed furniture, pale checked soft furnishings, exquisite soft aubusson rugs form the overall scheme, whilst crystal chandeliers add a touch of glamour and glitz creating the right balance for easy, Mediterranean living. This is Jane’s home from home and has been designed for her exclusively. With it’s unique trompe l’oeil painted walls and simple accessories - this is Jane’s retreat, and, as such has been decorated just for her. Have a look around and you will see why she can’t wait to get back here, to her second home, twice a year!
