Interior Inspiration: Handelsmann + Khan 12BF

I recently discovered the work of Felix Forest and absolutely love what he does in both his Interior and Personal work. 

Having spent the last seven years traversing between his former home of Paris and his new home of Sydney, Forest's european sensibility combined with his curiousity for natural beauty and the human imprint, have provided the cornerstone for his commercial and personal work, both of which have since built him a strong international presence.

This home in particular is what really drew me to his work. The play of white walls and deep colored wood beams that bring a warmth into the space to make it feel very inviting and home-y. I'm also a huge sucker for a cascading marble counter top in a kitchen - what a dream!

WE STUMBLED ACROSS AN ENCHANTING 18TH CENTURY BUILDING, IN ONE OF THE MOST ROMANTIC LISBON SQUARES, LOCATED IN THE OLD CULTURAL QUARTER OF THE CITY. SANTA CLARA 1728 IS SURROUNDED BY MONUMENTS, BEAUTIFUL PALACES AND A PARK WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF THE RIVER. 
Charmed by the beauty of the place we soon discovered that we had found our new family home...

The renovation carried out under the guidance of our good friend Manuel Aires Mateus, not only respected the original heritage, but it also added serenity and comfort through the purity which defines his architecture. The outcome was a peaceful home where guests are welcomed as long time friends.

I would do anything to stay in this home. The interior design and decor are absolutely stunning. Minimal yet warm and inviting. I imagine the stay here is really special. One day!
