This is the retreat of French interior designer Jacques Grange. The house is located in the south of Portugal, not far from the Atlantic Ocean. The kitchen (above) is simple (nothing hi-tech) with cupboards and wall cabinets. The blue and white tiles are typical Portuguese ceramic tiles.
An outdoor corner protected by a wooden roof calls for long hours of doing nothing.
Wood and straw are the main materials used for the house.
Inside the atmosphere is simple, but sophisticated. Grange: “It was fun to decorate with things from nothing”. There are touches of Africa and on the floors you can find Moroccan rugs. Throughout the house there is also a large collection of pottery and porcelain.
