P

orto has just moved up on my bucket list, because I wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon at Casa de Serralves, an Art Deco lover’s dream! In many ways it reminds me of Villa Cavrois, but with two extra advantages: it’s in a warmer climate and there’s more pink. You can feel me swooning all the way from here to where you are, right?

Have a look at these amazing images of the place made by Liliana from the online magazine Taste of Portugal, a must visit website if you are looking for Portugal travel tips or are interested in Portuguese design.

Casa de Serralves was built between 1925 and 1944 and is a rare example of Streamline Moderne Architecture. The villa is now part of the Serralves Foundation in Porto’s western suburbs, Its first owner was Carlos Alberto Cabral, the second Count of Vizela , a man with a passion for contemporary  architecture who was part of Porto’s industrial elite. He commissioned architect José Marques da Silva to construct the Villa, a proces he was closely involved in.
