The owners of this beautiful holiday villa in the south of Portugal lead busy lives. With this in mind, we ensured the color palette was subdued, thereby creating a calming, relaxing mood. The lady of the house has a penchant for luxury, stylish fabrics, the warmth of special objects, and details.
This is reflected throughout the home, which is infused with a distinctly feminine touch. We further created a serene atmosphere by choosing tone-on-tone grouping for the sand-colored accessories and textiles, such as fine linen.
We emphasized the summer feeling by opting for transparent curtains that gently ripple when the wind blows. As this is a holiday home, the experience is different to a primary residence: you spend more time outdoors yet expect the same comfort as inside.
This is why we created an abundance of places to rest, sunbath and eat – including an outdoor spot with an open fireplace. The interior and exterior are perfectly in balance, thanks to the use of local natural stone for both.

Studio Piet Boon
Studio Piet Boon is an internationally renowned design studio, recognized for its multi-disciplinary design services and it’s remarkable talent of balancing functionality, aesthetics and individuality into one of a kind design experiences. Shifting boundaries and setting new standards.
The studio’s heritage lies in Amsterdam and the nearby Zaanstreek, a region well known for its typical innovative spirit and ‘getting the job done’ mentality as well as being the ‘motor’ behind the success of the epic Dutch Golden Age. It was in the Zaanstreek where painters, woodworkers, carpenters, masons and other master craftsmen turned smart entrepreneurs and tastemakers as early as the 15th century. Building on this grounded mentality and creative expertise Studio Piet Boon was established by Dutch designer and Zaanstreek local Piet Boon (1958) in 1983.
