Near Lisboa: a country home

I'm sure you have all dreamed about getting away in your respective countrysides? No? I know I have, every time I go anywhere outside London I find myself daydreaming about a rural lifestyle. And if that life included a house like this one, well even better! This Portuguese rural home had me at hello and you know what really made it for me? That stone patio with all the boho cushions. Just perfect! (um... that pool? Yes... I KNOW!!)

    How are you? Hope you are having a fabulous week! As for this home — yes, please! I think I would feel right at home here and perfectly content to stay... maybe forever. The sink is just beautiful, love the outdoor areas, and that living room? Yes, please! *sigh*

    xx, Sarah
