Design Elements : Portugal


One of the most beautiful things about Portugal are the highly artistic azulejos adorning thousands of indoor and outdoor surfaces throughout the country. Particular to the Spanish and Portuguese (due to their Moorish history), the best place to see these designed tiles is the Museo Nacional do Azulejo in Lisbon.

The ancient convent turned museum holds a collection of fantastic inspiration for designers and enthusiasts of all backgrounds – textiles and fabrics, interior design, history buffs, creative thinkers, and even jewelry designers. If you can't make it there, regardless, it's all around you in Portugal.. all you have to do is keep your eyes open!

The city of Porto also has beautiful works, particularly the baroque blue-and-white panels covering entire exteriors of many landmark buildings.
