is it ever too much to have the same thing everywhere? well, if you thought so, think again. this home in portugal, that’s in the newest issue of architectural digest, has wicker and rattan everywhere and i love it. take a tour here. 

this home is in comporta, a small jet-set resort town, an hour outside of lisbon. the home belongs to the perrin family. Patrick perrin comes from a dynasty of french art dealers. despite that pedigree, he wanted to do his own thing, so in 1991 he opened his own gallery and co-founded the groundbreaking pavillion des arts et du design

Perrin and his family fell in love with the area after visiting with friends. he bought some land and assembled a team to build this fantastic house. i love the neutral palette and the open air floor plan. there is an overload of texture- i’ve never seen so much wicker, rattan, bamboo, rope, jute and straw in one place….

…but you know what, it just works!!!
