Located in Lisbon, in one of the noblest and chicest neighborhoods in town, this apartment is characterized by the historical memory of the pombaline architecture style, which was preserved in the contemporary approach of the interior design defined by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho.
The project complements the feminine and eclectic aesthetic of its owner. The walls are covered in a very soft dust rose paint, fractured by the impressive work of art signed by artist João Louro featured on the main wall. Long white linen curtains give the space a sense of luminous comfort. The incorporation of vintage pieces with design classics gives the space an elegant character, but above all a timeless feel.
Tribal items, such as the Moroccan Berber rug and tribal bench in dark wood, cohabit harmoniously with the pieces designed by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho, which includes the sofas, the black iron console and mirror coffee table, as well as with the vintage items, like the beige armchair, the floor lamp and some of the decorative pieces. The dining area incorporates the lacquered Oh Table, designed by CJC, with original chairs by Charles & Ray Eames and vintage chairs from the 50’s.
The bedroom, very classic and feminine, follows the same decoration theme with a soft color pallet, where the sea foam green of the walls prevails. The bed and bench, central elements of the space, are both replicas of Louis XV pieces, and are both lacquered and upholstered in linen capitonê. Having differing bed side tables, one in glass by Eileen Gray and the other designed by CJC, adds an intriguing element of dissymmetry to the classicism of the other pieces. Pops of colour arise from small elements like the pillows with birds, the vintage pink table lamp and the painting by artist Paulo Damião.
With black as its main color, the bright kitchen is mainly functional with clean, contemporary lines. The vintage crystal lamp bestows an elegance and personality to the space, reflecting its owner’s elegance and taste.
