"Beautiful Interiors ~ Ana Antunes"

I just wanted to showcase today this most talented interior designer from Portugal ~ Ana Antunes!
I think I must have been under a rock as I have only just discovered her work after my friend Tonya told me! 

Ana's work is exquisite ... I love the freshness and with us just starting spring in Australia it is a perfect tonic!

Her use of Louis style furniture upholstered in gorgeous Designer's Guild fabrics, mirrored furniture, stunning chandeliers and fresh flowers is so beautiful!

I particularly like the use of floating glass frames on the delicious duck-egg aqua blue walls and the fabric on the Louis chair is a cut velvet from Designer's Guild.  Ana has used different patterns and textures on her upholstery and it works so well.

This is so perfect .... the lilac fabric on the daybed and the herringbone aqua rug ... I love the restrained use of pattern ... it is there but done so delicately ..

This selection of silverware and mercerised glass atop the mirrored cabinet is gorgeous .... and that blue .... perfect! 

Congratulations Ana your work is exquisite and is such an inspiration!  Thank-you!

Now I think I might just find a quiet corner and sit on this gorgeous antique daybed ...... and dream .... have a lovely week-end!
best wishes always M.A. the 2nd
