Highlights of InterDecoração 2015 – Oporto – Exponor

Last weekend we visited Interdecoração in Oporto. To be fair we weren’t expecting much but we had a good surprise when we went inside. There were a lot of great products by brands almost unknown to us. Is this good? Yes, of course, it means that decoration and design are growing all over the world and our houses and spaces where we live are getting more beautiful and cosier. Below you’ll find a few pictures of what were the best moments and decor ideas we found.

Please enjoy and who knows if next year we will find you there.

Who is Paula Rego?

Dame Paula Rego (born 16 January 1935) is a Portuguese and British visual artist who is particularly well known for her paintings and prints based on storybooks. Rego’s style has evolved from abstract towards representational, and she has favoured pastels over oils for much of her career.
