“Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.” – William James
August is when most Europeans take a month long holiday. I envy them and vow each year to do the same. It hasn’t quite happened yet but when it does, I might have to look into spending my time off in Portugal. Jacques Grange has a compound of four houses for himself and friends (note to self: make friends with Jacques Grange). They are all decorated slightly differently but all take their cues from the local environment including this one. I especially love all the natural elements mixed with blue and white. It definitely looks like a lovely place to while away the dog days of summer. Sigh.
How beautifully airy – please when you and Jacques are the best of friends, would you invite me?
So beautiful and stylish compound. I would love to just hang out there and have some siesta. Yes, pls make friends with Jacques Grange really fast so you can stay there for a well deserved vacation.
Jacques Grange is one of my top 5 favorite designers. Thanks for the great post!
I spied these photos in the latest Coté Sud. I thought I was done with my lusting over this place. I guess not!
Love Jacque’s place!
Note to self: after you make friends w/ Jacques, I need to make friends with you! 🙂 What a lovely home!
