Today I’m loving … this beautiful tree swing. It has been featured on the Fuori Salone’s website but unfortunately I could not figure out who makes it or where it’s sold.
Update: the designer of this swing is Alberto Sanchez. You can find more information here. Thank you Grace and ArticulateArt for letting me know!

On Design*Sponge I found this gorgeous book: Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia. The book contains stunning photographs and essays dedicated to the ancient domestic buildings of Puglia, Italy.
These ancient buildings once served as farmhouses and way stations for those traveling along the Via Appia. They now have been renovated to function as private residences or boutique hotels. The book is a feast for every interior lover especially for those loving this rustic style.
A review from Amazon: “…Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia is a striking book of photographs and essays dedicated to the ancient domestic buildings of southern Italy…. Stark but captivating constructions of medieval stucco and calcified stone, many of them in recent years have been converted to private residences and boutique hotels. While they differ greatly in style, all share a profound sense of space, light and serenity.”

Today we take a virtual trip to Portugal where we will take a peek into this stunning country home in Palmela, which is not far from Lisbon. This is the refuge of interior designer Monica Penaguião. The building itself is simple and rustic, it’s the mix of modern furniture that gives color to the various rooms.
The lounge area (top image) is stunning. Thick mattresses and cushions made from Turkish fabrics are great for an afternoon nap. The kilim rug is an antique. The stools and chairs are from Tolix. The handmade pergola gives shade to the pool area (image above). Missoni towels brighten up the sun beds that were purchased on a trip to India.
The beautiful table ware is from Kenzo. The chairs around the dining table are the Wishbone chairs from Hans Wegner.
The stone sink in the kitchen is mounted on an iron frame. An old wood oven is used for baking and gives warmth in winter.
The green lamp in the dining room is designed by Marcel Wanders for Capellini. The rotan stools were purchased in the region of Alentejo.
The colorful painting by Brazilian artist Isabelle Tuchband gives perfect contrast against the white wall. The chair made from scrap wood is from Piet Hein Eek.
A perfect place for al fresco eating! The dishes are from Bordallo Pinheiro, the glasses from Kenzo and the chairs are made from recycled wood by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek.
Doesn’t the pool look very inviting?! The whitewashed walls and old wooden doors (image below) maintain the authentic charm of the building.
