About our home

My 1-bedroom, 1st floor walk-up apartment comes with a sunny balcony, hardwood floors, lots of books and plenty of charm. I moved in 2006 after having restored it with great care; I kept IKEA furniture to a bare minimum and brought in many vintage finds, as well as objects, posters and artworks created by friends or people I admire.

I live in a 1950s building across the street from a supermarket on Avenida de Paris. Since I moved in I was for long the building's youngest tenant, but recently other younger people – artists and designers, a programmer and a photographer, my front-door neighbour who shot the photos of my apartment – live here, so there's a nice community vibe to the building. In the backyard there's a shared vegetable garden with lemon, fig, avocado, medlar and cypress trees.

Avenida de Paris is one of several European-city named avenues and squares that make up one of Lisbon's nicest, easiest neighbourhoods, which features great 1940-50s architecture, plenty of shops and cafés (including Mexicana, a mid-century modern icon and a great place for pastries and coffee), one of Lisbon's best bookstores (Barata), a dynamic city theatre (Teatro Maria Matos) and a world-class engineering school (Instituto Superior Técnico).

More about us

  1. I'm a thirty-something design writer and curator. I came back to Lisbon in the Summer of 2010 after spending two years in New York studying design criticism; I've also lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Treviso, Italy.

    I'm currently teaching at two universities, but I travel a great deal for work and leisure (especially weekend/city breaks).

    I'm very neat, but also extremely easy going. And allergic to cats.
